Rangi Chase explains why Castleford Tigers haven’t won a Super League game yet

Rangi Chase Widnes

Rangi Chase will forever be remembered in one part of West Yorkshire.

Chase made his name in the UK with Castleford after moving in 2009 before winning the Man of Steel in 2011.

Ever the mercurial talent, the halfback regularly wowed audiences with his incredible skill and off-the-cuff specialities.

Spells at Salford, Leigh, Castleford again and Widnes followed, but he was handed a two-year suspension after testing positive for cocaine.

A move to Doncaster in 2019 saw the Kiwi relaunch his Rugby League career, but he’s now found a home in Lancashire following a desire to find a club nearer his children.

But, having made a new Twitter account, Chase is now giving his views on latest issues, not least the suggestion by League Express editor, Martyn Sadler, that Castleford are relying too much on older players rather than giving more opportunities to younger stars.
The Tigers went down 26-10 to Hull KR on Friday with that result being new head coach Lee Radford’s third defeat in a row since taking over as boss.
Chase, however, gave his own opinion on why the Tigers lost, tweeting: “They lost because of the lack of discipline. Execution with the ball and missed opportunities. Age has nothing to do with the result. Study the game properly.”

Castleford take on Radford’s former side Hull FC at the Jungle on Sunday afternoon with a big following expected from East Yorkshire.
