Nathan is a promising young prop forward who cemented his place in the team in 2013. Massey played in every Super League game, adding four tries in the process. It helped him secure a new contract, keeping him at the club until the end of 2015. He also earned third place in the Player of the Year Awards that season, but despite playing well in 2014, he picked up a number of injuries that stagnated his progress.
His 2008 form with the Tigers reserve grade was followed up with loan spells at Featherstone and York, and he won his first full time deal for 2009.
He earned a spell in the senior side that year, but injuries limited his opportunities, and he was loaned to Gateshead, where he benefited from playing first grade as a regular in the Thunder side.
In 2010 it was planned that he would continue his development on a dual contract basis with Keighley, but after just one game for the Cougars, he suffered an injury which ended his season.
The following campaign saw Nathan make his first team debut for the club. 2012 saw Nathan become a regular for the Tigers, making most of his appearances as an impact player off the bench.
Nathan was signed from Wakefield junior side, Walton Warriors, but graduated through the Tigers Academy ranks, winning the Player of the Year award at that level in 2007.
