Castleford Tigers v Salford Red Devils Preview
The Castleford Tigers take on the Salford Red Devils in a match that the hosts will be targeting a win whilst the away side will be hoping for a confidence booster.
The Tigers are always a strong side at home and the trip to the Jungle is always a difficult one for any team but for a team such as the Red Devils, this is one of those games that can really make or break a season.
If Salford can pick up a win it will be just the moral boost they need and will be almost seen as a couple of bonus points whilst on the flip side of that, if the Tigers are to push on and be challenging this season, they really need to be picking up wins against the likes of Salford and especially at home.
The Castleford Tigers Wheldon Road / The Jungle Stadium is host of this one and whilst it is far from the best stadium in the sport, it can produce a great atmosphere.
Castleford Tigers v Salford Red Devils Prediction
Here at RLBet, we give out predict for who we think will win and also what we think the winning margin will be but don’t forget that the unpredictable nature of the Super League, this should only be seen as our view.
As 2 of the oldest Rugby league clubs in the world who are both based in the sports British heartlands of the M62 corridor, it will be no surprise that these 2 clubs have a long history of facing off against each other in battles on the field including in some of the biggest matches that the sport has to offer.
The first huge match up between Cas and Salford on the national stage came in the 1938-39 season when these 2 historic clubs met in the First Division Championship Final, now known as the Grand Final.
It was the current day Red Devils who ran out winners by 8 points to 6 in the last national final before a 6 season hiatus due to the second world war.
The next major match to feature the 2 sides came in the 1968-69 season when Cas left Yorkshire and Salford left (then) Lancashire and headed down to London to meet in the final of the Challenge Cup at the iconic Wembley stadium in a match that a huge crowd of just under 98,000 fans packed the stands to witness Castleford pick up their second trophy by defeating Salford by 11 points to 6.
In the Super League era, one of the biggest matches between the 2 sides came in the 2019 when the sides met in the end of season play-offs when it was the Red Devils who pulled off a shock win in a comfortable 22-0 victory in the elimination semi-final.
