Jon Wilkin’s Castleford Tigers warning

Castleford Tigers are struggling at the moment having lost the first four games of the season and parted company with their coach Lee Radford.

However, Sam Tomkins had no sympathy for the Tigers as he was critical of the way they set up against Huddersfield Giants in their latest defeat getting badly beaten at the John Smiths Stadium.

Tomkins said:

“They’ve got to take it right back and build from the bottom. I felt like Gaz Widdop was running around and organising everything, you had people like George Lawler at the back of plays like a full-back. A prop playing nine but acting like a full-back, I thought Gaz had a dig but the defence was so poor that the attack didn’t have a chance.

“All good teams are built on defence, look at St Helens for the last four years. The best defence every year and the best team every year.”

Meanwhile, Jon Wilkin warned Castleford that they just need to avoid relegation because they won’t turn things around this year:

“Just don’t get relegated Cas! They can do whatever they want, they’re not going to turn it around this year.”

He then emphasised that they and Wakefield Trinity have a chance of being relegated:

“They’re a chance, it’s between them and Wakefield who goes down for me but Cas just need to not get relegated this year and then hope they can make something up next year and the year’s going forward.”
