Castleford Tigers v Widnes Vikings

Castleford go into their first home game of the season already under pressure which is surprisingly for a team that did so well last season, but those performances only raised the expectations levels on them and it has to be said that in round 1, they fell well short of the level expected of them.

The move of Roberts to full back simply didn’t work and will be fascinating to see who gets that berth this week whilst for a team who stuck to their structures so well last season, it was surprising to see them struggle to break down the Saint sin round 1.

In front of their own fans you have to expect much more from the Tigers, but they will come up against a Widnes team playing with confidence as for a team who many expected to struggle in 2018, Widnes made a great start in round 1.


Castleford suffered somewhat of a hammering in round 1 in their46-6 loss at Saints whilst Widnes pulled away in the 2nd half to defeat Catalans 40-12.
