Brian Noble, who famously guided Wigan Warriors out of relegation trouble in 2006, had had his say on the current relegation battle and has warned Castleford Tigers that Wakefield Trinity will pick up wins and that the Tigers need to stick to improving.
“Well they’re out of the Challenge Cup now. So the league has to be their focus. Andy Last will have one eye on Wakefield Trinity,” he said on BBC Sport.
“Wakefield will get a win, I am confident of that as we get into the second half of the season and move forward and that will increase the pressure.
“But that is professional and performance sport at the highest level.
“He has to keep working on the small things and get his best team on deck and then fire away at more league points.
“Get more league points and get some breathing space between them and Wakefield Trinity.”
Jamie Jones-Buchanan questioned their skill level:
“Skill levels, strategy and fitness levels, I think they were beaten on all three fronts.
“You have to nail the basics. I know Andy Last spoke about ruck speed but you have to wind it back to the basic skills.
“The first 20 or 30 minutes of their first session should be basic skills and getting that muscle memory and getting in tandem because if you get the opportunities but you can’t execute, you are never going to score.
“It’s not a million miles away.”
