12noon blog a different league

Vikings 0 - 34 Tigers

Some Castleford tigers fans were either late to the game or turned round and went home because of a situation on the roads. The kick off wasn't delayed tho and a lot of Cas fans missed the start of the game.

For the first 20 mins Widnes put pressure on Castlefords line, but Cas held out and then opened up with 4 tries. Minikin went over twice and Shenton and Eden got one a piece making the half time score Vikings 0 - 22 Tigers.

Matt Cook and Greg Eden both scored in the second half, but Widnes didn't score at all.

Castleford were outstanding again and remain at the top of the league table after the first 4 games unbeaten.

Cas Tigers after 3 games 2017

3 games and 3 wins.

Castleford 44 - 16 Leigh

Warrington 22 - 30 Castleford

Castleford 66 - 10 Leeds

Sene-Lefao, Eden & Hardaker have hit the ground running and all have been fantastic for Cas. Minikin is scoring for fun and him and Eden could both be in the run in for top try scorer this year. It helps having two good centers in Webster and Shenton tho. Luke Gale must be the best halfback in the country at the moment and Rangi Chase has played his part in two of the 3 games. McShane took Rangi's place for the Leeds game and you've only to look at the score to see that it worked well. Milner has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years and also played really well. Lynch, Moors, Springer and Millington are the backbone of the team and if i was trying to pick a man of the match, i'd find it very difficult at the moment especially for the Leeds game. 

Exciting times for Cas Tigers. Top of the league and really looking good, but at the same time very exciting to watch.
