21st September 2003: Castleford 16 Wigan 23
Castleford Tigers v Wigan Warriors Tetley's Super League VII Round 28
Sunday 21st September 2003 Kick Off 3:30pm at The Jungle.
CherryandWhite.co.uk Match Report by Rebecca Smith
Two tries in three second half minutes proved crucial as Wigan came back from 12-6 down to beat Cas 23-16 at the Jungle this afternoon.

Wigan fought back from a 10-0 deficit to beat the Castleford Tigers 23-16 at the Jungle in their final league game of 2003.

The third-placed Warriors now take on neighbours Warrington at the JJB on Saturday in their first play-off battle.

The Tiger’s raced ahead in the first-half with tries from Waine Pryce and Andy Johnson before Terry O’Connor grabbed one back for the Warriors But two tries in three minutes from Brett Dallas and David Hodgson gave them the lead which they never lost.

JJB-bound Danny Orr tantalised the Wigan travelling fans with an assured halfback performance and he dispelled any suggestions he might have mixed allegiances when he forced his way over the whitewash in the 73rd minute to cut the gap to three points.

But Danny Tickle’s last minute try secured the Wigan win. Regardless of the result Wigan were always going to finish in third position after Leeds defeat of Hull the previous evening but the players still showed the passion and pride in their jerseys that has been evident since Gregory took control and explains why the side remains unbeaten under him.

He said: “Credit must go to Castleford. They showed a lot of commitment and we knew it was going to be tough and physical.

"I gave the players a slap on the back for the result but we do need to improve our ball control.

“I am not making excuses but over all I think we had one eye on what happened at Hull last night. It was always going to be a third-place finish for us after today's match.”
