Castleford Tigers suffer huge blow to Niall Evalds

Castleford Tigers star Niall Evalds may have scored in the West Yorkshire club’s 23-0 half-time lead against Warrington Wolves.

But, the fullback was taken straight off down the tunnel after scoring as he looked in great pain.

The Tigers raced into an 18-0 lead after two tries from Derrell Olpherts and one from Danny Richardson, with Evalds dotting down just before half-time.

Richardson also slotted over a drop-goal to make it 23-0 as Warrington had no reply whatsoever.

Evalds was pictured with his arm in a sling at half-time as he looked despondent with Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks confirming he has dislocated his shoulder.

This is how both sides lined up:
