MARK Lennon is hoping to play a starring role for Wales in a bid to win a Super League contract for 2006. And the 25-year-old utility admits former club Cas would be his preferred choice. Lennon has been named alongside Tigers pack men Jordan James and Byron Smith in the Principality's 28-strong squad for the European Nations Cup and jets into the country this week ahead of Sunday's opener against Scotland at Bridgend. Since being released by Cas, he has spent the past two seasons at Manly Sea Eagles but first-team opportunities have been limited and he is now looking to revive his Super League career. "I've really enjoyed myself at Manly but there have been limited opportunities for me. I've been playing predominantly full-back instead of being a utility five-eighth half-back, which is where I was used in Super League. "The first-grade team have a young full-back called Brett Stewart, who was playing pretty well. In the only two games he missed over the past two years I played one game against Penrith Panthers last year and one game this year against the eventual 2005 Premiers, West Tigers. "I've been pretty frustrated playing Premier League. This season I scored 134 points, which included 11 tries in 20 games, so I know what I'm capable of and I'd love an opportunity to play in the Super League." Lennon admits he would consider a return to the Jungle: "I loved my three years at Cas and I'd love to go back and play in their comeback year in Super League. "Being home made me realise the NRL isn't the be-all and end-all. Crowds are far better in the Super League and there's more noise and more atmosphere, which makes it far more enjoyable to play. I also miss the English lifestyle and the friends I made during my time at Cas." Added Lennon, whose agent/manager is one-time Castleford utility Andrew Purcell: "I'm still under contract with Manly till the end of next season but my manager has said they would release me if I wanted to head to the UK."
