In tank!

vic­tim Jor­dan Turner when they re­turn to ac­tion against Wi­gan next Thurs­day night.

“But we gave them too much ball and it took a lot of gas out of us.

“Late in the game we were out of en­ergy and made some er­rors com­ing out of our own end try­ing to play catch-up.

“At the mo­ment we’re a tired footy team, there’s not much petrol left in the tank.

“We’ve been up for a long time and won a lot of must-win games, but now we’re men­tally shot.

“It still doesn’t ex­cuse a team hav­ing put 40 points on you and we’ve got to make sure we’re up for the last two games.”

Castle­ford coach Daryl Pow­ell says his side are in the per­fect place to launch their bid for a maiden Su­per League ti­tle.

The Tigers came from 12-4 down to beat the Gi­ants, scor­ing 40 points with­out re­ply to make it four wins in a row and move to within a point of sec­ond-placed Wi­gan.

“I thought we were re­ally good, par­tic­u­larly with the way we’re de­fend­ing at the mo­ment,” Pow­ell said. “We con­ceded a cou­ple of soft ones at the start but af­ter that we de­fended well.

“Over the last month I think we’ve con­ceded 10 and a half points a game which is re­ally good.

“We’ve got a lot of play­ers play­ing re­ally well at the mo­ment and as a team we’re just get­ting bet­ter.

“Hud­der­s­field are very good how they de­fend and it took us a while to break them down. I think that pa­tient side of our game is re­ally go­ing to help us.”

Pow­ell hailed the per­for­mance of sec­ond rower Ju­nior Moors, who scored two of the Tigers’ eight tries. Paul McShane kicked six goals from seven at­tempts.
