Castleford Tigers v Wakefield Trinity Preview
The Castleford Tigers take on their near neighbours, Wakefield Trinity, in a Calder / Wakefield MDC derby in what is always a big match for both sides and always an exciting game for neutrals.
As a town in the city of Wakefield, Castleford and the Cas Tigers fans just love to get one over Trinity whilst the rivalry is certainly returned by the fans of Wakefield.
That rivalry adds importance to the game no matter what stage of the season it is played in or how much is on the line for both teams but most importantly that rivalry always makes sure that there is a packed house in attendance and that there is a great atmosphere awaiting the players.
Just who will have bragging rights in the Wakefield region of West Yorkshire? Here are our thoughts and review of the action.
Cas come into the derby on the back of 2 straight wins and 3 wins from their last 5 whilst Wakey have just the 1 win from their last 5 matches, but that did come last time against Warrington in Willie Poching first match in charge.
No matter if you know it as Wheldon Road, The Jungle or the Mend-a-Hose Jungle, the Tigers home stadium is one of the most unique in the whole of the Super League.
The pitch is incredibly narrow and is short which always gives an advantage to the hosts who are used to playing on it but the biggest home advantage comes from the stands.
Just as the playing surface is tight, the stands are tight up against the pitch and whilst the ground is well past it’s best, whenever Cas plays host to Wakey there is a big crowd in attendance and that means that 1000’s of fans will be right next to the players to support there team and to make life difficult for the opposition players from the other side of the district.
