“Powell out last week, this week he’s being bought leaving presents with bows on” – how Castleford fans reacted to winning their Challenge Cup semi-final

Hardly anyone gave Castleford a chance ahead of kick-off in their Challenge Cup semi-final against Warrington. Yet, come full time, no one could begrudge the Tigers an incredible 35-20 victory. But, how did the Castleford supporters react?

One Castleford fan had Monday off work, so his plan was simple.

Another Tigers fan thought it felt like a dream.

Even one former Tigers great, Adrian Vowles, invoked the Castleford spirit.

Another believed that positivity after last week’s drubbing by Leeds was important.

Another Castleford fan used expletives to get across how he felt.

The media manager at Castleford summed up the emotion perfectly.

Another praised the superb performance.

Another Castleford fan called it “one of the best days” he had ever had with his father.

One Cas fan even brought back memories of the semi-final back in 2014 when the Tigers beat Widnes, only for the game to be overshadowed by the events after.

Another referenced the difference a week can make in rugby league.
