The head coach watched her side maintain their unbeaten record in the Women’s Super League as they ran out 30-14 winners against another unbeaten side - Saints. 

Tries from Tara Stanley, Georgia Roche, Emma Lumley and Rhiannion Marshall cemented Castleford’s place at the top of the table. The Tigresses are now two points ahead of second-placed Bradford Bulls.

Anfield spoke after the game and said: “We are pleased with the result, and especially with our performance in the second half where the girls seemed to find their next gear.

“The major aim is to build on this platform and continue to improve each game. Week on week the crowd is getting bigger so as a club we want to be playing entertaining rugby and make our women’s team something for them to be proud of.

“I thought Tara Stanley was solid at the back for us and played with a mature head. Georgia Roche gave us that bit of magic and I know there’s more to come from her this season. Rhiannion Marshall was also on top form.

“All in all, the players and staff played their part and we couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season. We now have to make sure that we don’t get complacent and continue to work hard.”

The Tigresses turn their attention to the Challenge Cup which will see them face their local rivals Featherstone Rovers. The two teams will meet on Thursday the 23rd of May at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle. Kick off for this game has been set at 7pm.

Entry to this huge game is £3 for adults and £1 for kids. What's more, Castleford Tigers season ticket holders get FREE entry.
