Out-of-contract Jake Mamo provides future update

Recent speculation has linked Jake Mamo with a move to Castleford, but the Australian isn’t rushing into anything.

Mamo is out of contract at the end of the year and, despite not being flustered by an unsettled future, he does want to get things sorted.

“I’m in the last year of my contract, but it’s not affecting me to be honest,” Mamo said.

“It’s good to sort these things out earlier in year because I’ve been there in the past where the conversations drag on and you end up getting a bit stressed out.

“It’ll be good to get a decision soon which will be good for the fans to know as well.”

Having lost out to the Tigers in round one of this season, Mamo is keen to put that right this weekend.

“I really like playing against Castleford, we’ve had some really good games over the last few years.

“I’ve played in quite a few positions against them and it’s always been a good battle.

“They’re a good bunch of blokes as well and it always better playing against teams that are.

“The focus on Saturday for me is being super tight around their left edge, they’ve shown they’re a quality side and have been for a couple of years.

“They got one up on us in round one so we’ll be hoping to put that right on Saturday and bring the fight to them.”

Mamo told boss Steve Price that he wanted to play at centre this season and the 26-year-old is happy with how he has performed so far.

“I obviously missed out earlier on in the season and I told Pricey that I wanted to play centre and then got the opportunity.

“Since then I’ve been fairly happy with my performances, there’s been ups and downs but all in all, I’m reasonably happy.

“I’ve had to fight to get there. We’ve got Toby King who’s the man-of-the-moment so far and then GI who is GI so there is a lot of pressure there.

“When we do get GI back it’ll be good for everybody and then I may have to make way, but I’ll still fight for my position and hopefully keep it.”
