Jacques O'Neill could be offered a return to rugby league after the former Castleford Tigers hooker decided to leave reality TV show 'Love Island'.

Castleford confirmed last month that O'Neill had been released from his contract "to allow him to pursue another opportunity" ahead of his arrival in this summer's series of 'Love Island'.

The Super League side will not make a further comment on whether O'Neill can resume his Castleford career after it was confirmed the 23-year-old had exited the show.

But Castleford left the door open for O'Neill in an initial statement, which read: "The Tigers have the first option to sign O'Neill back next year should he wish to return to rugby league."
