Former Castleford Tigers and Great Britain star Graham Steadman has had his say on his former club’s woes.
He suggested that he has seen a lack of effort from some of their players.
He said on BBC Five Live: “It is disappointing. As I mentioned earlier, I went to the Catalan game and they got out of their blocks and played really well for the first half.
“But one thing you can always say a Cas team will do is they will step up and give it their best and put 100% in. And if it’s not working, you just hold your hand up and say, well done to the opposition. But that particular night, there was a distinct lack of effort from one or two individuals. It wasn’t good to see.
“Andy’s got his work cut out. I don’t want to sound too negative, but I think the only saving grace they’ve got at the moment is Wakefield with 12 straight losses in the Super League.
“I’m hoping they can turn it round, but they are a little bit depleted. We can look for excuses. It’s always a big test of the squad to step up.”
Castleford are in a real battle for survival at the bottom with their rivals Wakefield Trinity.
The longer Castleford remain on the losing streak, it leaves their rivals with a chance of making a real battle for survival.
