It was one of the most bizarre results of the season so far, but it’s safe to say that Leeds’ 60-6 demolition of Castleford had people talking all over social media. But what was the reaction, especially amongst Castleford supporters?
One fan claimed the Tigers had been getting gradually worse since Daryl Powell announced he was leaving for Warrington at the end of the season.
Time for Powell to clean his locker time for us to move on been worse every game since his announcement

Another even claimed Powell had “lost the plot”.
Hopefully with his resignation because he’s lost plot big time listening to those comments

Another supporter almost went through a full dictionary to describe the performance.
All better adjectives

One fan felt really let down being a Tigers season ticket holder.
Advantage of being a season ticket holder …. pizza prima discount.
Disadvantage of being a season ticket holder …. having to go watch games like that.
The fans couldn’t give any more than they do. That was a roaring welcome which was just thrown away.

Another highlighted that problems must be going on behind the scenes.
Absolutely shocking – a score line like that reflects a bad culture, attitude and Mindset at the club

Another called for quick action to be taken.
Unacceptable at every level, the team and club need to get it sorted very quickly!
— Mark Burns-Williamson (@MarkBW_WY) May 28, 2021
Another called on the players to take responsibility.
Every player that played tonight should be absolutely ashamed of themselves

A Castleford fan also brought up that the players were quiet on social media the day after.
Is the wi fi down in Cas the players are quiet. @CTRLFC

On the flipside, Leeds fans were loving it. This one in particular called to play Castleford “every week”.

Pride was the main feeling amongst the Rhinos supporters.
Top class performance and every player should be proud of their performance. Now back it up.
— Eggman (@2eggman) May 28, 2021
Another highlighted the fact that such a performance had been absent all year.

One supporter pointed to how good the rugby produced by Leeds had been.
Incredible performance, didn’t see that coming. Really exciting rugby
— James Pearson (@JamesPearson25) May 28, 2021
One even had a bit of fun in pointing to the six conceded.
Our defence is woeful, not nilling them is atrocious. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
