Jesse Sene-Lefao’s next destination mistakenly revealed by teammate

Jesse Sene-Lefao will be moving to the Catalans Dragons.

That’s according to his current Castleford Tigers teammate Tyla Hepi who, when announcing his departure on the Castleford Tigers Instagram page, commented: “Good luck at Dragons 🐉 @jsenelefao you’ll love that ☀️ 🏝 🇫🇷 ”

The 31-year-old has been with the Tigers since joining for the 2017 season and has been a firm fan favourite since coming to England from NRL side Cronulla Sharks.

With over 100 Castleford appearances to his name, Sene-Lefao in his five seasons as a Castleford player has helped the club reach both the Super League Grand Final and the Challenge Cup Final, as well as lift the League Leaders’ Shield.

Sene-Lefao said: “There are not many words that I can say that would show my appreciation for the club itself and what I’ve achieved over here. Every moment is special and there is definitely pride in the jersey that I wear every week, that is something I’m going to miss. It’s also a jersey that is hard to put on every week, always challenging.

“I could never think five years ago that I would be here still and playing for Cas, such a beautiful town, and the people here, the support has been awesome. It is sad to say that the time is up but when one door closes, another door opens and it’s another opportunity for me and I’m excited for that, but our season isn’t finished. I’m looking forward to the next couple of games.”
