First double header

Posted: Sunday 17th June 2018 - 10:01 AM


On Sunday the Mend-A-Hose Jungle will host its first ever male/female double header and what a time to have it too!

Following Castleford’s Men’s win over Warrington and the Women’s sensational victory over Bradford Bulls in the Women’s Challenge Cup, there are positive vibes all the way across our great club! 

Sunday 17 June
3:30pm Castleford Tigers v Hull KR
5:30pm Castleford Tigers Women v St Helens Women (appoximate KO time)

The Castleford Tiger’s Women take on St Helens straight after the final whistle on Sunday so stick around and show them your support. Things could get even better for the Tigresses with a win over St Helens. Despite sitting fourth in the Women’s Super League table, Castleford are only one point behind league leaders Saints and could replace them at the top by the end of the day. 

There are injury worries for the home side with a number of our first team Women’s players still out on the side lines. With that in mind, Castleford will no doubt be the underdogs in this fixture, a point backed up by head coach Lindsay Anfield who said: “St. Helens are the league leaders for a reason. They have some exceptional players, have proven to be a great team and will no doubt give us a tough game. Nevertheless, I’m confident that my players will put on a good fight of their own. We had some brilliant moments during our Challenge Cup game against Bradford and I hope we can have some more today.”

We encourage all Tigers fans to stick around following the men’s game and experience one of the biggest clashes on the Women’s Super League calendar this Sunday.
