Rampant Saints Continue Winning Run

Breathtaking attacking play saw Saints overwhelm Castleford Tigers 50-10 to remain top of the Super League.

Mick Potter’s men were simply clinical in their opposition’s half and ran up nine tries on their way to another win at the GPW Recruitment Stadium.

The home side weathered an early Castleford scare to race to a 20-6 half time lead.

Brett Ferres touched down after just five minutes, but tries from Leon Pryce, Chris Dean, Keiron Cunningham and Jon Wilkin put them in the strongest possible position at the interval.

And it was no more than they deserved after some scintillating scores – Chris Dean’s in particular a real gem.

Mark Parish, Director at GPW commented,
“As sponsors of Chris through the club it was great to see him getting over the try line again. He is having a fantastic season!”

Gary Wheeler and Jake Emmitt both played in the reserves’ 58-6 win over the Tigers which meant a call up for Chris in the centres and Tony Puletua moved up the pack to the front row alongside Bryn Hargreaves.

This emphatic win follows of from last weeks victory over Hull FC which saw Paul Wellens, personally sponsored by GPW Recruitment, score a hat-trick of tries and leaves Saints firmly at the top of the Super League table.
