Recommended Posts

That makes Cas the sixth different side to finish top in six years (nearly seven in seven had Hull not bottled it last year in the last game).

2011: Warrington 

2012: Wigan 

2013: Huddersfield 

2014: St Helens 

2015: Leeds 

2016: Warrington (nearly Hull ?)

2017: Castleford 

 

And they say it's the same teams every year...

Some of that lardy white flesh on show in the stands could do with a bit of sun.

It can wait. Looking forward to next Thursday, should be some game.

The thing is, the so called big clubs bang on about you need to win a grand final. You don't. LLS is a major achievement for us. Even if we don't win the big one. 

Wakey, Salford and ourselves aren't big clubs, we take what scraps we can. Just so happens we have the best coach in the league. We should get better, but we won't get much bigger. 

So, so proud tonight.

Attendance circa 2800 with ~ 500/900 hospitality/away fans

Cas fans put in seats opposite the cameras, to make it look like a decent crowd. Many wanted to be standing behind the sticks.

Cas deserved winners but Salford got far too many substandard players in the squad who cant step up!!

OConnor mentioning Carney but I'm afraid he's talking about a Carney of history . God knows where he's gone

A lot are the same, signed on history. Big names, no gains.

Cas sold over 900 tickets - this combined with those that paid at the gate means that the turnout of home fans was dreadful.

Both puzzling and concerning for a side that have played a great style of rugby this year, got to a semi and are still in with a great shout of the Top 4

Strange
