Hapless Trinity Fall To Tigers

What a gritty display from Castleford Tigers as they firmly accounted for visitors Wakefield in this convincing 42-10 victory.

They have now earned themselves a semi final spot against Wigan and have really found form moving into the critical phase of the season.

Greg Eden was in blistering form with four tries and takes his tally to 15 scores in seven games since his return from injury.

Castleford opened the game hard and fast and were 18-0 up before you could get your 2nd pint from the bar. With Trinity missing key players I would have staked a cool million on the outcome of this game.

To add to the visitors woes, they also lost Scott Grix in a valiant effort to stop a Michael Shenton score, but the writing was very much on the wall.

18-0 at half time in a no thrills half and the game almost certainly over as a contest.

Trinity did apply some pressure at least moving into the second half and the outstanding Bill Tupou added to his seasons account after taking a pass from Matty Ashurst .

Castleford were always in the ascendancy and Grant Millington replied although Trinity’s other impressive centre Reese Lyne added another four shortly after when he held off Michael Shenton for the Score.

Nice little rally from Wakefield but that was it as the outstanding Greg Eden completed his treble for the home team.

His fourth was to follow after a classical back line movement involving Luke Gale and Shenton and to finish things off Junior Moors followed up on a Paul McShane run to add to the score.

Luke Gake completed seven from seven and Castleford cantered in for an impressive win without ever needing to get into top gear.

Their semi final opponents of course will be far harder hitting but in Peter Mata’utia, Greg Eden , Luke Gale, Paul Mc Shane and Mike McKeekan the tigers have the power the speed and the skill to be a very serious threat to Wigan in the semi final.

Wakefield have had a pretty good season and coach Chris Chester will be disappointed with this display.

Castleford: Mata'utia, Minikin, Webster, Shenton, Eden, Trueman, Gale, Watts, McShane, Millington, Moors, McMeeken, Massey.

Replacements: Roberts, Milner, Sene-Lefao, Clark.

Wakefield: Grix, Jones-Bishop, Lyne, Arundel, Tupou, Hampshire, Wood, Huby, Randell, Arona, Batchelor, Ashurst, Crowther.
