“They’ve kept their distance from me after Friday” – Andy Last gives coaching update

Andy Last has made it very known that he wants the Castleford Tigers job on a permanent basis.

Last has occupied the interim role at the Jungle for three weeks after the departure of Lee Radford.

He led them to their first win of the season against Leeds Rhinos but has suffered big losses to Huddersfield Giants and Warrington Wolves.

This week, speaking on BBC Radio Leeds, Last joked that those in charge of appointing the next coach at the Jungle have kept their distance.

“They’ve kept their distance from me after Friday night’s game, when I walk in and try make eye contact they’re turning the back on me and walking into their office,” he said.

“But no I haven’t had any chats with them in regards to the position, I’ve just got to keep working hard and try pull the group together.

“We’ve been inconsistent probably two or three years now, Castleford as a team have been inconsistent and what we’re striving for is a little bit more consistency and just showing a little bit more fight than we did against Warrington.

“That was the most disappointing thing, there was a period there where in the first 10 minutes we’re 6-0 down and we’re still in the fighting and then with an unforced error and back to back scores we’re 18-0 down and it felt as though the player’s confidence just drained away.

“We need to be better and show more resilience and more fight and I expect that against Catalans.”
