Castleford have got the right mentality, says Daryl Powell

Castleford coach Daryl Powell says his side have “got the right mentality” at the moment as they gear up to play two games in four days.

The Tigers take on Warrington in Super League on Thursday and they face Hull FC in the Challenge Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Powell said: “It’s always difficult to do that but I think we’ve got the players with the right mindset to do it.

“We’ve got the right mentality at the moment. I see a really hungry and happy group of players.”

Warrington will still be without seven players who have either been tested positive or told to self-isolate but an under-strength team managed a 37-12 win over Hull a week ago and Powell is expecting a stern test.

He said: “They’ve got a few players missing but we’ve played against them in the past with 10 or 11 players missing and won the game, so that should tell us not to take anything for granted.”
