Hull FC man explains how Castleford Tigers duo were key to his move

Castleford Tigers have confirmed the signing of exciting young halfback Jacob Hookem from Hull FC today.

The new Tiger is very happy to be at the Jungle: “I’m really happy to be here! The opportunity came up and I’m excited to be able to progress here at Castleford.” Hookem told

“I was able to get a few Super League games under my belt last year at Hull so my aim is to keep progressing and kick on to become a regular at the top level.”

Hookem went on to explain that current Castleford Tigers duo Cain Robb and Jason Qareqare were key due to his pre-existing relationship with him:

“I know Cain Robb from my time at Whitehaven and I know Jason Qareqare from representing on camps together. I’ve spoken to them about coming here and I can’t wait to be mixing in with them too.”

Also key to the move were Danny Wilson and Rob Nickolay:

“I owe a lot to Danny and Rob. They’ve put a lot of development into me and really helped me with my game so I’m happy to be back with them. Those two are key reasons why I chose to come to Cas, the pathway too and the type of knowledge they have they were a key factor in coming here.”
