Official Match Report

Castleford Tigers booked a semi-final trip to Wigan Warriors as they continued their domination of Wakefield Trinity with a 42-10 rout of their depleted West Yorkshire neighbours.

Last season’s Betfred Super League Grand Finalists have quietly gone about their business in 2018 and appear in good shape for a return to Old Trafford after a fifth straight win, their 11th in a row against Trinity.

Wakefield coach Chris Chester, down to his last 17 players amid an injury crisis, sent his team out to play an expansive game, but it backfired as Castleford raced into a commanding lead thanks to Greg Eden’s two tries and one from Greg Minikin.

Trinity came back into it through tries from Bill Tupou and Reece Lyne either side of Grant Millington’s effort.

But Eden completed his third hat-trick in seven games and added a fourth before Junior Moors completed the scoring.

Castleford head coach Daryl Powell said: “The boys have done well to manage a real awkward game tonight, our last one at home. We’re in a good place and hopefully Shenny is going to be OK. We’re looking forward to next week now.

"We wanted second but it’s a great effort finishing third and we’re in a great spot. It gives us a good lead into the semi-final. We know we’re playing Wigan now.

“We’re one game away from a Grand Final and Saints next week will prepare us for that.”

Wakefield head coach Chester said: "Everything we tried tonight didn’t come off. 

"We knew we couldn’t go through Castleford so we had to try find ways of going around them with some trick plays. It didn’t come off but there was lots of effort from the boys.

"We were down to 17 fit players and chanced our arm. “We’ve had it tough but every team has gone through it. We’re just going through it at the end of the year.”
