Lynch extends stay at Castleford

Castleford prop Andy Lynch has signed a one year contract extension which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2017 and potentially beyond.

The new deal gives Lynch the option to stay with the Tigers for another year if he wants to continue.

The 36-year-old became the oldest active player in Super League at the beginning of this season.

At this time the body feels good, age is just a number, and as long as I still feel I can give it my all then I’ll continue to play. Rugby League has been my life, I enjoy every day working here at Cas and I don’t want it to stop.

'Tough tackling' on crime in the Jungle

Castleford Tigers' stadium will be used for a different form of 'tough tackling' today as West Yorkshire Police use it as a training ground.

The Force's new recruits, along with sixth-form pupils from Royds School in Leeds, will take part in exercises such as simulated arrests, patrols in and around the ground, and will be tasked to deal with simulated 'incidents' in real time to test their policing skills.

It's great to see members of the public, players and students getting involved in assisting the development of police training in West Yorkshire. It's vital that every officer who polices West Yorkshire gets the right training from a variety of experiences so that they can provide the best possible service to our communities.
