Another hat-trick for Eden against Centurions

Greg Eden made it four hat-tricks in a row as Castleford Tigers eased past Leigh Centurions 38-0.

Jesse Sene-Lefao touched down two tries to put Castleford in control with just over 20 minutes played.

Eden then scored three tries in five minutes to continue his fine personal run and see the Tigers into a 28-0 half time lead.

The on-fire winger touched down his fourth shortly after the re-start to close further on Denny Solomona’s Super League try-scoring record.

Jamie Acton saw his effort ruled out with Leigh still scoreless before Luke Gale was held up at the other end.

Jake Webster crashed over two tackles later however before Daryl Powell had the luxury of resting Gale in the final 10 minutes in a wholly comfortable victory.
