Last night it was Last’s night as Castleford Tigers’ interim boss Andy Last picked up his first win at only his second attempt in charge at the Jungle.
Last has taken the reigns at the West Yorkshire club since the departure of Lee Radford after two games.
In his second game in charge, the Tigers hosted last year’s Grand Finalists Leeds Rhinos and picked up a win that kick start their season which naturally sparked huge celebrations.
After the game, Leeds legend Jamie Jones-Buchanan said they deserved to celebrate like that:
“I’d say a win is a win, you have to enjoy winning in sport. Momentum is a big thing in sport, they will start believing in themselves.”
He went on to say that he hopes Andy last gets the job full time despite the fact former teammate Danny Ward is up for the position:
“I hope Andy Last gets the job. He has worked hard and got this result, back him.”
This appeared to have been echoed by Greg Eden who was the Man of the Match last night.
He said on Sky Sports last night:
“Well Andy has done a good job and put his best foot forward and we showed tonight that we want to play for him.”
