Castleford Tigers winger Greg Eden explains why he was taken off at half-time in the win over Toulouse Olympique

Castleford Tigers won their third game of the Super League season last night with a 32-6 victory over newly-promoted Toulouse Olympique.

The Tigers withstood a number of attacks to concede just one try – an impeccable improvement considering they had the worst defensive record in Super League going into the game.

And, Castleford flyer Greg Eden believed his side stuck to the gameplan well.

“We knew that they were going to come and go for us, but we set out to get in front in that first ten minutes and we did that and it stood us in good stead,” Eden told BBC Radio Leeds.

The Castleford winger has started the season like a house on fire, scoring eight tries in five games but praised those around him for giving him the space necessary to finish off his tries.

“With our attack like it us at the minute with Niall (Evalds) out the back and Truey (Jake Trueman) putting on the plays I’m just happy to be finishing them off.”

Eden was taken off at half-time to be replaced by Mahe Fonua, but it was a tactical change rather than a forced one.

“I’m all good, there are no problems.

“We had Mahe on the bench so it was a plan to give me a rest at some point.”

Castleford now travel to Craven Park to take on Hull KR on Friday night in the Challenge Cup Quarter-Final and it promises to be an absolute cracker following the Robins’ superb 34-18 win over Warrington Wolves.
