Castleford Tigers suffer huge RED CARD following horror shot on Warrington Wolves man

Castleford Tigers have suffered another huge blow in their fixture against Warrington Wolves.

Not only had Niall Evalds been taken off with a dislocated shoulder, but Cheyse Blair was sent off for a horror shot on Warrington’s Josh Thewlis.

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.

Jason Qareqare – Evalds’ replacement – managed to dot down early in the second-half with Ben Currie finally getting the Wolves’ first points of the afternoon from a George Williams kick.

Matty Ashton crashed over next to set up an exciting finish but Blair saw red to give the Wolves a much better chance.
