Brett's capture by his hometown team in 2009 proved a real coup and in an impressive first campaign at Castleford he won the ‘Forward of the Year' award.
2010 was another successful one with Brett ending the campaign in tremendous form and having reason to be considered unlucky not to feature in the England Four Nations squad.
In his third season for Castleford, Brett arguably showed his best form in amber and black before a serious shoulder injury put an end to his campaign early.
Having progressed through the Tigers scholarship, Brett's professional career started out with the Bradford Bulls where he made his Super League debut in 2005.
The following year he cemented his place in the senior team and he followed up his Academy international honours, touring Australia & New Zealand in 2004, by winning four caps for the senior England team in the 2006 Federation Cup competition.
The following season Brett was signed by Wakefield where he was a regular before the Tigers moved quickly to bring him to the Jungle, extending his contract well before the end of the 2009 season.
Brett took the loose forward position in 2011 following the departure of Joe Westerman to Hull FC.
