Official Report / Commentary

Captain Danny McGuire was one of three Hull KR players sin-binned as Castleford Tigers returned to the top of Betfred Super League courtesy of a 32-16 success.

Tigers, one man down at the final hooter after referee Gareth Hewer also showed Grant Millington a yellow card, struggled to shake off their dogged visitors until 12 points in three minutes paved the way for a fourth straight win.

Greg Eden – with his second of the game – and a home debut effort from former Rover Chris Clarkson took the Tigers from 20-12 up to lead 32-12.

But with McGuire yellow carded for dissent and James Greenwood and Weller Hauraki also in the sin-bin, the 10 men scored the game’s last try through Chris Atkin.

Rovers have won only two of their opening five fixtures but could have made a closer contest of it with Mose Masoe denied a hat-trick try with Rovers only trailing by eight.

Castelford coach Daryl Powell said: "It was an uncomfortable game right from the off. We weren’t anywhere near where we needed to be or have been in the first three games.

"I was disappointed with the performance. We need to play better than that because we were poor.  But we won the game so we are pleased with the two points."

Rovers boss Tim Sheens said: "We are never pleased with losing but there were lots of circumstances which went against us. We didn’t do well enough to win the game."
