Castleford Tigers Secure Rising Star Sam Hall with New 2-Year Deal

Castleford Tigers have continued their strategy of retaining their promising young talents, with confirmation that Sam Hall has penned a new two-year contract to remain at the Super League club.

Hall’s signature marks the third such deal the Tigers have secured in the past week, following the re-signings of fellow youth system products Jason Qareqare and George Hill.

Hall’s Rising Talent

The 22-year-old forward has been a regular fixture in Castleford’s side this season, featuring in 10 of their 11 Super League matches as well as their Challenge Cup triumph over Batley Bulldogs. His 11 appearances in 2024 add to the 16 he made for the club last year, since making his debut back in 2020.

“Sam Hall is a very talented player, he’s young, English and a middle and with that it attracts a lot of attention. Every Super League club was interested in Sam Hall, he’s got a big future in the game and we hope he stays long-term at Castleford and we’re very excited that he’s committed his future with the club and he’ll continue to excel in Super League.”

  • Danny Wilson, Head of Rugby

Developing Talent from Within

The club’s announcement highlighted Hall’s journey through the Castleford Tigers youth system, from signing for the scholarship at 14 to making his Super League debut at 17. Wilson emphasized the club’s pride in developing their own talent, noting, “Before we even came to Castleford we knew about Sammy Hall and the good work the club had done at that time with a lot of players.”

With the re-signings of Qareqare, Hill, and now Hall, Castleford Tigers have clearly prioritized investment in their rising stars as they look to build for the future.
