Castleford hope to make the most of home advantage at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle when they host the latest PDRL Festival of the season this weekend.
Leeds Rhinos are the pacesetters after the first two of the five Festivals to be held in 2019, with a 100% record from the four fixtures they have played at the Eastmoor Dragons community club in Wakefield, and then at Wigan St Patricks.
Each team plays two 25-minute matches at each of the Festivals. This weekend, the Rhinos have a double-header against the two Warrington teams who will be attending Sunday's Festival, as usual including the comedian and leading PDRL evangelist Adam Hills.
Cas take on Wigan, who are joint fourth in the table with an identical record of one win and three matches, at 2pm followed by their local rivals Wakefield Trinity in a repeat of this weekend’s derby in the Betfred Super League.
There are two more Festivals to come this summer, at Victoria Park in Warrington on August 4, and then as part of Rugby League’s Grand Day Out at Stanley Park in Blackpool on September 7 – before a Final between the two leading teams later in the autumn.
If you are near Castleford on Sunday and love Rugby League, come and watch the next round of @PDRLEngland. Free entry. I’ll be playing for @WWCLSFoundation (if selected). See you there! https://t.co/leNZHeChAV— Adam Hills (@adamhillscomedy) July 12, 2019
