Castleford Tigers docked interchange against Salford for handing in incorrect team sheet

Castleford Tigers

Castleford Tigers have been docked one of their interchanges in Sunday afternoon’s game against Salford Red Devils.

This is due to Craig Lingard’s team handing in an incorrect team sheet prior to kick-off at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Sky Sports commentator Dave Woods confirmed in the opening stages of the game that the Tigers were handed the punishment following the error.

It remains unclear so far what the error with the team sheet was exactly but it has cost Castleford an interchange, something that could be crucial given the poor underfoot conditions and the higher chances of sin bins and red cards this season.

In Round One of Super League Castleford Tigers had to play almost 50 minutes with just 12 men after Liam Watts was controversially sent off for a shoulder charge that made contact with the head, an offence that saw him banned for four matches including today.

As such Watts is on the sideline watching the game today with hosts Salford also looking for their first win of the season after losing to Leeds Rhinos last week.

Castleford Tigers have also had a horror start with Sam Stone crashing over after just ten minutes whilst the Red Devils then went and doubled their lead almost immediately through Amir Bourouh.

Craig Lingard’s side also had a try ruled out through the video ref after Innes Senior stepped into touch before grounding.

Sam Wood has since pulled one back though to score his first for the club since moving from Hull KR.

As such the Tigers trail 12-4 with the home side looking to be in the ascendancy as both teams fight it out for their first win of the Super League season.
