Local derby tops Women's Rugby League bill this weekend

Local derby tops Women's Rugby League bill this weekend

Castleford Tigers could secure their play-off place with a win.

Castleford Tigers welcome local rivals Featherstone Rovers on Sunday in the weekend's only Women's Super League fixture.

Last time the sides met, back in May, Castleford won a thriller 40-32 away from home.

This weekend's game should be no different, with both sides having their own reasons for a win.

For Featherstone, their 2018 season comes to an end on Sunday and they will be keen to end on a high after picking up just one win in a challenging campaign.

Meanwhile Castleford can secure their place in the top four if they avoid defeat, with Bradford Bulls currently two points adrift of the Tigers with one game left to play.

All Championship games take place on Sunday, September 23 and are due to kick-off at 2pm.
