Castleford Tigers v St Helens Preview
The Castleford Tigers welcome St Helens across to West Yorkshire for what is always an exciting game and one that has a big say on the outcome of the season for both teams.
St Helens are a club who go into every season expecting it to be a successful one and to be challenging for honours whilst the Tigers are a club who know that if they can remain healthy and get some good form going they too can be challenging whilst a run of looses and a drop in form could see them drop into mid-table mediocracy- such a re the fines margins in the Super League.
One of the best ways to keep pace with the top clubs and to play yourself into a confident run of form is to take on and defeat the top teams, especially at home, so that adds lots of pressure to the Tigers and it also highlights just how important this game is for both clubs and what the impact could be for both clubs going forward.
Both teams come into the game on the back of losses, with Cas losing to Warrington and Saints losing at home to Huddersfield but with a combined margin of just 3 points, both will have lots of positives coming into this one.
The Jungle plays host to this one and whilst the ground won’t win any awards for its facilities and for the look of it, when the big clubs are in town the ground packs out and the Cas fans create a great atmosphere.
The pitch is one of the smallest in the sport and that plays to the favour of the hosts as they know how to play to the small confines of the Tigers pitch and when you add in how close the fans are to action and you have a unique atmosphere and setting for the players to perform to their best and to give us an exciting game.
