Match Preview: Saints vs Castleford Tigers – Round 22

Saints face Castleford Tigers at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Sunday afternoon with kick off at 1pm, and we have all the information you need right here in our Match Preview story.

BACKGROUND

Saints go into this game off the back of a disappointing 44-12 defeat to Salford, but still have a four point lead at the top of the Betfred Super League table.

Kristian Woolf will be hoping the return of Tommy Makinson can help boost his side to another win in front of the Channel 4 cameras and move them a step closer to wrapping up the League Leaders’ Shield.

Castleford Tigers have won four of their last six games to leave them sitting in 5th position in the Betfred Super League table.

Defeat against 11th placed Wakefield last time out means that Lee Radford’s Tigers come into the game wounded and looking to hit back.
