Jacques O’Neill visited his rugby club after jetting home from the Love Island this week, where he was offered welfare support.

The Castleford Tigers player quit the ITV2 show in dramatic scenes aired this week, telling his co-stars he needed to ‘get back to himself.’

He was pictured back home in Yorkshire on Wednesday with his rugby player pal Ellis Longstaff, and his club have revealed they have been in close contact with their signing since he returned home.

Coach Lee Radford admitted he is unsure whether the 23-year-old, who plays as a hooker for the first team, will return to the club but they are supporting him.

The club have the first option to re-sign Jacques if he wanted to resume his rugby league career, but Radford said the focus right now is making sure their player is OK.

Sky Sports report that when asked about re-signing Jacques, Radford said: ‘It’s not something we’ve spoke about, obviously it only happened last night, he flew home last night.

Adding of his meeting with Jacques on Wednesday morning: ‘He looked jaded, he’d had no sleep, obviously all the euphoria of doing what he’s been doing, I suppose, that’s probably a conversation for further down the line, I think.’

‘Like any walk of life there are obstacles in front of you, unfortunately, making sure people are around you whether that be your family or club related to help you deal with that is pretty important.’

The club confirmed in a statement that Jacques will be able to receive support from Castleford’s welfare officer ‘should he wish’.

A statement said: ‘In advance of appearing on the reality TV show Love Island, the Tigers’ welfare officer had communication with O’Neill, and this support will continue to be offered to him. Alongside the welcoming nature of our first-team environment, of which he has been a part since the age of 16.

‘Castleford Tigers’ primary focus with Jacques at this stage will be to support him. All at the club look forward to welcoming Jacques and his mother Janet to The Mend-A-Hose Jungle for a Betfred Super League match very soon, to cheer on the Fords.

‘The club will make no further comment at this stage.’

There were emotional scenes on Tuesday night’s episode of Love Island after Jacques made the decision to leave the villa. 

His decision came days after his family defended the backlash against him saying he has ADHD, which means he struggles to contain his emotions.

Making the announcement on his social media, his family wrote in the caption: ‘Jacques was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 9 years old.

‘By no means is this a get out clause for his actions but it is to show that he can fundamentally struggle with his emotions at times.

‘He is an amazing person who I’m proud to call my friend/little brother.

‘All the hate thrown towards Jacques doesn’t go to him directly….It comes to his loved ones who have always supported him and not just whilst he is on Love Island.

‘Love Island, although real. Is still a show where the producers do have control and we see 45minutes out of the 1440 in 24hours. Please be kind.’
