Salford Red Devils v Castleford Tigers
The Salford Red Devils take on the Castleford Tigers in eliminator match up from the Super League play-offs and the great news not just for fans of both teams but for all rugby fans, is that you can watch all of the action live online via our Super League live streaming partners.
The Red Devils ended the regular season in great form but they come up short last time out against Wigan, despite a good performance.
Cas on the other hand almost limped over the line to finish in the play-offs but they put in a much improved performance in their win at Warrington, which sets this up to be a great match.
Both teams know that this is simply a must win game as the loser’s season will be over whilst the winner will go on to face either Saints or Wigan next week.
Cas will have a huge following heading over the M62 whilst Salford fans showed how loud they can be last week so with both teams season on the line and with a great atmosphere set for the sometimes soulless AJ bell Stadium, both teams will be giving there all in this game in what should be a close game throughout.
Salford’s loss last week ended a couple of months of straight wins whilst the Tigers have 4 wins from their last 6 outings.
Salford name the same side that lost to Wigan last time out.
Castleford make 2 changes to the side that defeated Warrington with Mike McMeeken and Calum Turner dropping out to be replaced by Nathan Massey and Greg Eden.
This is a hugely difficult match to predict and it is one that we expect to be in the balance throughout. Both teams have shown time and time again this season that when they are on form they can defeat anybody but both teams have also struggled to live up to their best on certain match day.
With a place in the Grand Final on the line and with a big crowd expected, thanks in no small part to a huge following from Cas, that should create an atmosphere that see’s there players play to their best.
That should make for a great game and after struggling last week, we expect Jackson Hastings to step up last week and he is a proven game changer.
