FINAL TILT FOR EDEN PROJECT
GREG EDEN stands on the brink of history individually and collectively ahead of Castleford’s semi-final showdown with St Helens tonight.
The Tigers are two wins away from securing the first top-flight title in their 91-year existence after dominating Super League this year.
Flying winger Eden is two tries short of Denny Solomona’s Super League record of 41 – and one off his overall club mark in all competitions.
But the 26-year-old admits he needs to put all of that to the back of his mind when Cas host a dangerous St Helens team that has beaten them twice this season. Eden said: “I’ve been hearing about the try-scoring records all year and I’ve been thinking about it going into every game. “But I need to put that behind me and concentrate on playing as a team.
“Last time Saints came here they beat us down at Cas.
“They have come good at the back end of the year, and we definitely know that we’ll be in a contest.”
That includes putting the shackles on livewire Australian full-back Ben Barba (above), who is starting to find his feet four games into his Super League career.
Eden said: “You can see that he’s only going to get better because he’s new to the team.
“We’ve been watching carefully what he’s capable of and we’ve got some ideas to try and stop it.”
G FORCE Eden hopes to celebrate tonight
