Tigers Evens For First Super League Title

Betfred-Super-League-TrophyCastleford may be closing in on their first ever League Leaders Shield after opening up an eight-point lead at the top of Super League, but the nature of their 24-22 victory over Hull last Friday left many wondering if the Tigers are the value bet for this season’s Grand Final.

It’s almost a year since Cas were last beaten at home, but a stirring fightback after a disastrous first half almost saw Hull break that sequence – and add to their two previous victories over the Tigers this year.

In spite of winning this game Castleford were eased from 5/6 to even-money by the competition sponsors, Betfred, with last year’s play-off semi-finalists and Challenge Cup winners Hull now at 11/2.
