Woolf gives honest view on ‘desperate’ Castleford

Castleford head into Thursday’s fixture with St Helens knowing that anything less than a win won’t do.

If they are to make the play-offs, the Tigers realistically need to win the majority of their remaining fixtures, but they haven’t won at St Helens in the Super League era.

That, however, and a desire to gain revenge for the Challenge Cup final defeat, makes them ‘desperate’, according to St Helens head coach Kristian Woolf.

“We’re expecting them to be desperate, they will be talking about the Challenge Cup and us beating them then,” Woolf said.

“They will be talking about using this game as one they need to win to keep their season alive, but we are desperate too as we’ve lost some games.

“We want to keep getting better and better in what’s realistically five weeks for the rest of the season and that will make for a great game.”

One player who won’t be in Woolf’s squad will be loose-forward Morgan Knowles who received a knock in last week’s victory over Catalans.

“He’s just had a bit of a niggle from last week, but he will be back for Wigan next week.

“We thought with the short turnaround and having a couple of weeks that it was a little bit risky.”
