Danny Ward reveals why Castleford Tigers lost to Warrington Wolves

Warrington Wolves may be fighting against the likes of Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR and Salford Red Devils for a play off spot but opponents today Castleford Tigers have much more pressure as they fight for survival against Wakefield Trinity.

Now they have suffered a crushing defeat against the Wolves which has also taken away their points difference advantage though Wakefield do have to play St Helens tomorrow.

After the game, Danny Ward explained what went wrong for the Tigers against the Wolves:

“We started well, really well and scored first and same in the second half. We did some things really well.

“We controlled what we can control there, we were just way off. Some lads had a dig, some lads really stood up but some didn’t quite fancy it when it got tough and we just can’t do that.

“We are not a team that can carry half the squad reacting like that.”

He also had his say on Jacob Miller’s sin bin which came at 18-12 and by the time he came back on the game had gone.

“It was but it was a fair sin bin. Nothing to argue about but I won’t put anything on Milky there either.

“It was just one of those things and he got timing wrong and it is what it is and we should have been tougher.

“It’s 12 men, it’s not the end of the world is it? We can’t use that as an excuse. We should have dug in more.

“No where near good enough.”

The Tigers may not need to win another game this year to stay in Super League but now without that points difference advantage due to this 54 point defeat, they could end up being relegated by points difference should Wakefield find another win.

The Tigers finish their season against bitter rivals Leeds Rhinos which should give them hope given they have twice beaten the Rhinos this year but Leeds could still be fighting for a play-off spot by then after a win over Hull FC this afternoon 28-12 with a Sam Lisone hat trick the difference between the two.
