In one of the stranger moves before deadline day hits, the Castleford Tigers have announced the re-signing of former England half back Rangi Chase.
Whilst there can be no denying that the mercurial half back played his best rugby whilst darn’t lane, this move also represents somewhat of a risk for the Tigers who have built a great work effort and bond between the whole squad.
Since leaving the Tigers it has not gone well for Chase, who showed glimpses of his talent at Salford before leaving to join Leigh were he only made sporadic appearances before leaving the club.
The Tigers are a much more settled club and Rangi also has a partner and family from the area, so hopefully this move works out for him and Castleford as on his day he is the best half back in the league and did of course win the Man of Steel with the Tigers during his previous stay.
The Tigers have announced that he will originally join until the end of the season with an option for a further year.
