Castleford Tigers vs Warrington Wolves Betting Tips: Form Guide

Tigers Need To Tighten Up

Daryl Powell’s Castleford team have not been the free-flowing entertainers who swept all before them on the way to the League Leaders Shield last season. Fans will not mind that one bit, if Cas secure a place in the semi-final, and subsequently reach Old Trafford and win. Last season ended in disappointment when the Tigers were throttled in Grand Final by Leeds. That disappointment still rankles with many at the club, not least for the manner of the defeat.

This season Castleford, like many other clubs, have had to cope with injuries. Their form has also been patchy. Last time out, they lost narrowly 22-24 at Wigan Warriors. That result fit into a pattern of losing against fellow top-eight teams in recent weeks. In their last six games, Cas have lost to Catalans Dragons, Huddersfield Giants and Wigan. They have beaten three sides who are currently in the Middle Eights, in the shape of Leeds Rhinos, Salford Red Devils and Widnes Vikings. There remains a lingering suspicion that they are folding mentally when things get challenging. A victory over Wire this Friday night would go a long way towards dispelling that impression.

Wolves Ready For Watts & Co

Steve Price’s Warrington Wolves have enjoyed a good couple of weeks. A fortnight ago they put Leeds Rhinos to the sword in the Challenge Cup semi-final at Bolton, winning 48-12. Leeds are far from the force that they have been in the recent past, but it was still a sweet victory for the Wire. They followed that up by hammering Catalans Dragons 56-6 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium last week. While the Dragons looked to be suffering a hangover after their own Challenge Cup semi-final heroics against St Helens the week before, the Wolves still showed commendable quality and ruthlessness in the way that they finished off the French side.

A key battle for the Wolves on Friday evening will be in the middle unit, where England prop Chris Hill comes up against Liam Watts. The Castleford prop is widely seen as the best front rower outside of the England set-up, so he will be keen to put a marker down against Hill. Hill, for his part, is Warrington’s top metre maker in the pack. He has run for 2551m from 337 carries at an average of 7.57m a drive.

Castleford Tigers vs Warrington Wolves Preview: Recent Meetings

These two teams have played each other twice in Super League so far this season, with each team winning one game. The first clash was on April 2, at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle. Warrington emerged as 18-6 winners from the encounter, with Stefan Ratchford kicking two conversions and three penalty goals. The Wire tries came from Toby King and Daryl Clark. The match was played in appallingly wet weather, which affected the way both teams played.

The second match was on June 8, at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones stadium. This time, the Tigers emerged as victors, with the final score being 34-30 in their favour. The match was a real thriller, with Cas scoring two tries in the first seven minutes.

Castleford Tigers vs Warrington Wolves Prediction: Narrow Home Win

This should be a cracking game at Castleford on Friday night. While many fixtures in the Super Eights section of the season can seem a little meaningless, both teams will want to make sure that they win this game. They could well face each other again this season, either in the semi-final or Grand Final, and will want to put down a marker. They will also want to do their best to try and overhaul second-placed Wigan and secure a home semi-final.

If you’re looking for Castleford Tigers vs Warrington Wolves betting tips for today, then backing Cas to win might be a good idea. We’re predicting that the home side will win the game, but not by much – for us, it’s Castleford by six points.
