Castleford Tigers operating ‘under false sense of security’ according to Kyle Amor

Castleford Tigers have been a bit of a quandary in the 2022 Super League season so far.

Despite sitting in sixth place in the Super League table and therefore occupying the last play-off spot, the Tigers have wavered from great to dismal as they try to adjust to life under new head coach Lee Radford.

Radford’s last job in the top flight, of course, was at Hull FC with the former prop forward rejecting a move to rugby union side Dallas Jackals in the United States to take the reins at the Jungle.

However, Castleford have won just six of their 13 games with victories coming against the three bottom sides at present – Leeds Rhinos, Wakefield Trinity and Toulouse Olympique – as well as a depleted St Helens and Hull KR side, with their last outing ending in a 30-16 defeat to a rampant Salford Red Devils.

And, for new Warrington Wolves signing Kyle Amor, their position in the Super League table is a ‘false’ one.

“I think Castleford’s position in the table, I said it when I did the game (Castleford’s loss to Salford) with Sky, I thought they were in a false sense of security,” Amor said on The Last Tackle podcast.

“When the teams they played during that winning run, they played us who were a bunch of kids, a busted Hull KR side and a busted Leeds side.

“So, yes they have to play what’s in front of them, but it didn’t really reflect what they had to face and then when they faced Salford they got done by a considerable scoreline.”
