Warrington Wolves were able to get one over on the Castleford Tigers last night, putting the West Yorkshire side to the sword after weathering an early storm.
It is now two defeats in two for Lee Radford and his new club whilst Daryl Powell and Warrington boast a 100% record.
Tries from Matty Ashton, Josh Charnley, Peter Mata’utia, Rob Mulhern and Gareth Widdop sent the Wolves on their way as the Tigers could only reply through Derrell Olpherts and Jake Trueman.
After a sullied performance against Leeds last week, Powell acknowledged the big difference in his side’s performance compared to the showing they produced at Headingley last Saturday.
“Last week we got beat everywhere but I think we did a really good job today, we’re going to be as consistent as we can,” Powell said in his post-match press conference on Sky Sports.
“We want to build a brand for ourselves to be as successful as we can.”
However, despite what was a brilliant night for Warrington, it couldn’t have got much worse for Castleford fans, especially as a number of supporters sent us at Serious About Rugby League photos of damage to their coaches following the game.
One frustrated fan sent us a message, saying: “Three windows smashed through, police are here, meaning we need to wait for a new coach to bring us home.”
The fans in question eventually made their way homes after being sent a new coach, but the night could not have gone much worse for the hardy number of fans that made their way over the Pennines.
It is unknown who the culprits were but, whoever these misguided souls are, they managed to ruin another wonderful night of rugby league and, for the Tigers fans who had to wait for a coach to come all the way from Cas to pick then up from Warrington, it will have no doubt worsened a disappointing defeat.
