Women's Super League Round 4 Round Up


Tigers Steal Draw With Seconds To Play

Castleford stole the draw with seconds to play through a late Katie Hepworth try to move second in the Women's Super League table. It would be the Tigers who would make the better start to the game, going over after just 5 minutes, a penalty allowing Castleford to setup camp in the Wigan 10 before they found a gap to open the scoring, the conversion was missed. Georgia Wilson would level the scoring 10 minutes later, a perfectly timed cut-out pass would put her through the gap as the Warriors registered their first points of the game, Michelle Davis converting to make it 6-4.

Wigan had the momentum now and soon they would turn it into points, Rachel Thompson racing onto a crash ball before using her fantastic upper body strength to shrug off a would be tackler to stretch Wigan's lead, Davis unable to convert this time. The Tigers would strike back three minutes later through Tara Stanley, Stanley seeing her opportunity and taking it as she smashed her way over from close range, the Tigers once more unable to convert.

Wigan would register the first points of the second half, the captain herself Gemma Walsh scoring the try, opting to run on the last tackle after noticing the space out-wide, the Warriors captain barged her way over to out Wigan out to a 14-8 lead. The Tigers could not have left it any later to salvage the point, on literally the last play of the game Katie Hepworth would leave Warriors heads in hands as she found her way to the line and converted her own try to make it 14-14 with her game tieing conversion the last kick of the game.
