yep decent game.why we got rid of tom hemingway i will never know he had a blinder. you have a few big lads that did what was needed,hagerty will be a dews hero by end a season the way he takes ball in and looks after his teammates. tommy g still as a bit a pace for big lad too and had a good game, cas dropped far too much ball and were playing to impress mr powel for a shirt so made far to many mistakes, good night out and i reckon dewsbury will be well up in the top 6 this season all day long.

We didn't 'get rid' of Hemingway. He was offered an excellent contract by Dewsbury and opted to leave.

Good result that. Match report on Cas site says they took mostly kids, fringe players and injury returnees - which accounted for their defeat - Oh ! and it was a muddy pitch. I assume the pitches will be better when SL start summer rugby next week. I agree that we can't read much into friendlies, and things will become a little more clear when we've played Fev, but I'm becoming more convinced by the week that GM can maybe walk the walk.

i counted 13 players with squad numbers, which means they are full time whether 1st choice or not. the bench were youngsters. good display dewsbury, i was impressed by Haggarty. looking forward to next sunday.

Based on the fact we could only score 18 against Cas' youngsters, should we be concerned about our attack? I don't care, it was a thoroughly enjoyable game in those conditions and our defence was excellent again. It could have a greater score had Hyde not decided to take on the full back and lose the ball in the tackle, when he had men either side of him. I thought Hale showed a great turn of pace for his try.

Chris Leatherbarrow, the referee, controlled the game to SL standards, allowing Cas to be offside and hold down at the tackle; so much so that we adopted the same tactics, to a lesser extent and suffered for it. He gave a couple of odd decisions, both play on, when Cas knocked on with the ball shooting forward, only to say it went backwards! The other incident was from our kick in our own half and the player was clearly taken out, the ball kicked on and just went dead; the ref ordered a twenty metre tap to Cas.

Next Sunday should be very interesting and I hope the lads are as committed as in these friendlies; I am sure they will be. Is this first game already potentially our game of the season?

Thought the lads were outstanding I think Thackeray looks a really good buy just what we needed. Haggerty looks another good buy he's really aggressive.

Interesting to note that when the official team sheet was posted on the Castleford Tigers Facebook page, a big win for the Tigers was predicted by their fans! Link

Wow what a great game but nothing less than I expected, well done. Now as others have said sit back and wait for the Cas excuses to roll out. They just don't seem to accept they have been out played
