Foster, 24, who was already under contract for 2019, has made a big impact since joining the Tigers from London Broncos 18 months ago and has played in all but two of their 18 matches so far this year. Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: "I am absolutely delighted that Alex Foster has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club for the next three years. "Since he arrived at the Tigers, his attitude has been outstanding. He is one of the first names on my team sheet due to his work-rate, toughness and defensive ability.

"Alongside this, his versatility to play front row, back row and centre is very rare.
He has been a great acquisition for us and I'm confident he will continue to get better
over the period of his contract.''
Foster, who began his Super League career with Leeds Rhinos in 2013, said: "I'm made
up to get this new deal over the line. "It's taken a little bit of time to get it all sorted
as we were discussing the number of years that the contract was going to be
but the decision was never in any doubt.
"I've got nothing but absolute gratitude for the club for what they have done for my career.
This is the perfect place for me to be right now.''
