The main area Castleford Tigers have struggled in this season is attack.
They have scored only 17 tries in 10 games in the 2023 Super League season. Last year they scored twice that amount in just nine games.
However, there is hope for the Tigers with England boss Shaun Wane revealing the key role Castleford coach Andy Last played in England’s attack.
“Halftime we had to improve a few things. I wasn’t seeing England vs France, I was seeing England against Samoa or Tonga,” he said.
“I knew our detail in defence needed to get better and we saw that in the second half which I am really happy about.
“Andy Last great coach, he took control of our attack and he deserves a lot of credit.”
This was something he echoed in his press conference as he also said he wasn’t trying to embarrass France with his comments about defence.
He said: “I was quite harsh defensively at halftime. Andy Last has been good with our attack this week but I focused on defence because there were a few things that weren’t right with our defence at halftime believe it or not.
“I’m not trying to embarrass France with that but I am looking at what we would be like against Tonga or Samoa.”
