Daryl Powell full of praise for Danny Richardson after Castleford win

Castleford coach Daryl Powell praised the display of Danny Richardson after the half-back impressively steered the Tigers to a 28-18 win over Salford. 

Richardson finished the game with an individual haul of 12 points after kicking six from seven attempts, and also claimed a try assist.

Powell says the playmaker has been working hard in training to improve his game.

Powell said: “It was good to see Danny play with some confidence, have a hand in tries and his goal-kicking was really good.

“He’s had a couple of injuries, which have been hard for him, and he’s had a few poor games, but it’s going to happen. He’s still young.

“He’s working on his game and he just needs to keep working and building his confidence. He’s a quality player.”

Powell admitted that Salford started the match at the AJ Bell Stadium strongly, but said his side took control in the second half.

He said: “From about 20 minutes in it was a really solid performance.

“We were never at our best but I thought we controlled the game. I thought Salford were the best team for 20 minutes but we were pretty good after that.

“But it was a tough game. Our regard with the ball was really good in the second half.

“There was a couple of young kids in there who were great for us.

“There’s plenty to be positive about, I think we’re going to be dangerous this year.”
