Castleford changing room was “buzzing” at half-time, admits Powell

Daryl Powell expressed his delight following Castleford’s impressive victory at Widnes.

Trailing 18-0, Cas showed their class to win the game 34-24 and pick up their second victory on the bounce.

After their triumphing comeback, Powell said: “I’ve rarely seen a changing room as buzzing at half-time with the players just talking about the game.

“They felt they had every chance of winning it, you could just sense it. We just needed to tidy our game up but at 18-0 it looked quite difficult to do.”

“There’s an immense amount of character in the team and the response today to being 18-0 down showed great determination to come out the other side when you’re in a tough patch.

“Luke Gale’s execution near the line got us opportunities and we were good enough to take them.

“Denny Solomona’s finishing was again top quality and Jake Webster gave him some good opportunities with skill as well.”
