AUSTRALIAN star Ryan McGoldrick admits he is "90 per cent certain" to leave Castleford Tigers when his contract runs out at the end of the current season.

The 31-year-old Cairns-born utility player (pictured) joined Castleford in 2006 when the club paid a transfer fee to obtain his release from a contract with Wests Tigers.

He previously played at Cronulla and during his stint with the Sharks he spent a season in rugby union with the New South Wales Waratahs when he also represented the Wallabies in the World Sevens.

McGoldrick qualifies for the USA national RL team and made his debut for them in the World Cup qualifiers at the end of the 2007 season.
