Castleford Tigers’ fans in crisis after Wakefield Trinity’s massive win

Wakefield Trinity have just put Warrington Wolves to the sword as they defeated Daryl Powell’s side by a huge score of 42-6 at Belle Vue, dragging themselves level on points with relegation rivals Castleford Tigers following their recent run of form that’s seen them beat Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils and then Wigan Warriors.

It was Trinity’s fourth win in six, with all four coming at home, and it now draws them level on points with Castleford Tigers as both sides have eight points.

Prior to round 20 of Super League the gap was two points with a huge buffer in points difference as well but the nature of the Castleford’s 34-16 loss coupled with Wakefield’s massive win has seen the points difference cut to just 12 points from 54.

As well as the huge celebration from Trinity fans there’s been a major meltdown among the Warrington Wolves faithful, and it’s also the turn of Castleford Tigers fans who are understandably panicking.

The Tigers have lost five of their last six whilst Wakefield have won four of their last six with the polar opposites in form resulting in Castleford looking like relegation favourites now.

That’s led to fans demanding action with immediate effect in a bid for the Tigers to retain their Super League status.

Fans took to Twitter to make their disappointment heard.

Even just after half time in the Wakefield and Warrington game, one fan could see the writing was on the wall and explained how the vast majority of the Tigers squad were responsible for their position claiming they “should be ashamed”.

Similarly another accepted the huge up turn in form showed pride in the badge and meant Cas could no longer just try and hang on.

That same Twitter user was less eloquent come full time as they simply used a GIF to sum up their mood: “I can’t deal with this anymore”.

The comical poll approach was taken by another. *For those interested, at the time of writing the poll ranked 71.4% for Andy Last” *

There were calls for Andy Last to leave and more generally about the state of the club in recent years.

That same account called for Daryl Powell to be hired to save the Tigers’ season, if Warrington were to dismiss him.

There was again large criticism for the senior players failing to turn up, something Last had referenced himself on Friday night.

There was one prediction of a double sacking to come before the weekend closes.
