Well first I should admit that the half time pint saw me miss three of the four tries we did score tonight - so effectively I just saw Cas win 16-8. :-/

Wigan should have hammered Cas tonight. The Tigers were lame and it was only poor execution that kept Wigan from a 50+ scoreline.

It was completely the opposite from last week when 47 points flattered us - tonight 28 points was poor return from our effort.

There were no real stand out performers either - its just a night were you have to accept a win is a win and move on.

We've had some crap on the message boards from Castleford fans this past week but where were they tonight? All of about 500 turned up with just a little congregation at the top of the north stand making noise - "cheat cheat cheat" they chanted. Well all I can say is that two years a go you beat the "cheats" twice but on an even footing you didn't even come close! Work that one out Cas fans! :D

The opening quarter was all Wigan. Wave after wave of attack with no end product.

Our only return was a 9th minute penalty goal from Richards - after we had declined taking the two twice.

Castleford had two attacks and broke clear both times. The first break saw Wigan just about scramble back whilst the second was finished well. A break through a gaping hole down the left wing saw Peter Lupton collect a pass inside which we finished close to the posts. Westerman converted and having barely should any signs of threatening - Cas were 6-2 up.

Wigan continued to press in attack, with the help of many penalties, but we kept failing to score time and time again so off I went fuming to the east stand concourse. In the beer queue and bang we go and finally score. Richards capitalised as the Cas full back cocked up a high kick. He converted his own try and just like that it was 8-6 Wigan at half time.

After the break Wigan took control of the game with a quick fire double. Colbon notched the first after the defence was unable to deal with another towering kick from Barrett, before the classy stand-off put Leuluai over under the posts shortly after.

Pat failed to convert the first (sack him!) but kicked the second to make it 18-6. A penalty goal on 54 minutes made it 20-6 and game over.

Cas did score next on the hour as Tom Haberecht crashed over (conversion missed) but Thomas Leuluai responded to that minutes later with his second try. Nice short ball from Feka Paleaaesina created it and with Pat converting it was 26-10 and without really getting near to top gear Wigan had won the match.

Cas still get a consolation try from Mark Leafa but a third penalty goal from Richards finished the scoring at 28-16. The last penalty finally resulted in a yellow card which was given to Ryan McGoldrick.
