Match Report

Man of Steel front runner Blake Austin maintained his impressive form to guide Warrington Wolves to a 26-14 win over injury-hit Castleford Tigers.

The Australian stand-off created two of his side’s four tries and was a constant thorn in the side of the Tigers, who trailed 26-6 before producing a late rally.

A third successive win keeps the Wolves on the heels of Betfred Super League leaders St Helens while the Tigers drop to seventh after suffering three successive defeats for the first time since 2016.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell was forced by his club’s injury situation to give a debut to former Melbourne Storm centre Cheyse Blair - just three days after flying into the country - and the new man endured a difficult time with his opposite number Toby King scoring two tries.

Alongside King's efforts either side of half-time, Michael Cooper touched down in the first half while Ben Currie scored the Wolves' fourth try, with Stefan Ratchford adding five goals.

Cory Aston's early converted try had given the Tigers the lead but by the time Tuoyo Egodo and Greg Minikin crossed for their only other points Warrington were in command.
