Match Report

Full-back Peter Mata’utia struck in the seventh minute of extra time to give Castleford Tigers a 27-26 victory over Huddersfield Giants.

A try on his 200th appearance from prop Grant Millington three minutes from the end of normal time enabled the Tigers to level the match at 26-26 and set up the fourth Betfred Super League match to be decided by golden point this year.

It was a cruel outcome for stand-off Lee Gaskell, who scored a hat-trick of tries only to find himself on the losing team.

Two of his tries came in the first half, where a pair of penalties from Mata’utia and Greg Minikin's try helped Castleford cut the half-time deficit to 12-10. A third penalty drew the hosts level but Gaskell completed his treble, only for Liam Watts to pull the Tigers back to 18-18.

Mata’utia kicked another penalty to put Castleford ahead, however former Tiger Joe Wardle crashed over for Huddersfield for what looked to be the match-winning try until Millington’s late score.

Castleford half-backs Jake Trueman and Jordan Rankin both missed drop-goal attempts but Mata’utia proved to be the hero in the 87th minute.
