Super League star seemingly furious with opponent

Warrington Wolves are battling with Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR and Salford Red Devils for a play off spot as Castleford Tigers battle with Wakefield Trinity for survival which made the meeting between the two today crucial.

Emotions were high especially with some ex Warrington stars in the Cas side including Blake Austin.

The halfback absolutely smashed Matt Dufty at one stage and Dufty was seen by Sky Sports’ Bill Arthur giving some choice words to Austin.

Arthur said: “Dufty got up from that tackle and he told him exactly what he thought about it. He wasn’t happy.”

Castleford struck first after a solid start from Danny Ward’s men. It was a simple try for the Tigers as Sam Hall hit a strong line on the inside shoulder of a defender to power through and as he went down he stretched out to score.

Warrington soon hit back after some great play with the Wolves’ spine carving through the Castleford defence and on the back of this Danny Walker teed Paul Vaughan up to power over.

The Wolves continued to carve through their opponents and Matt Dufty would show great pace to dart through and score.

They continued to have success through the middle of the field and after another break a deflected pass landed into the hands of Ben Currie to score.

He would soon have egg on his face when he broke clear, it looked like a certain try as he had George Williams in support but he was behind the man and the pass was dropped.

Williams would then knock on again with the line close after great defence from the Tigers.

Another bombed try followed when Matt Dufty dropped a Matty Nicholson break with the line at his mercy.

Castleford punished them with a great set play allowing Greg Eden to stroll in but a yellow card for Jacob Miller created the space for Dufty to jink through.

They continued to benefit with the extra man with Daryl Clark weaving his way through the defenders after a great break to score a superb try against his former club ahead of a move to St Helens in 2024 as James Roby’s replacement.
