Dorn: We owe Warrington one

Castleford fullback Luke Dorn says the Tigers have some revenge on their minds as they prepare for tomorrow’s crucial game against Warrington.

Castleford were spanked 56-12 in March by the Wire at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Tigers return to the Halliwell Jones on Saturday for the first time since that heavy loss, to play the Wolves on their own turf.

Dorn said that defeat hurt Cas “a lot”.

“I didn’t play when we played them over there at the start of the year but that was a bloodbath,” he admitted to Love Rugby League.

“We still talk about it, it hurt us a lot that.

“We were talking about it when the fixtures came out that we’ve got a fair set-up, we thought, playing those guys before the Cup.

“What they’ll do with their squad, whatever. We’ll go after it with the same mentality that we have, our defence.”

Castleford have been beaten twice by Warrington this year, with the Tigers prevailing at Magic Weekend.

In recent weeks the Tigers have impressed both with the ball and, more importantly, without. A loss on Saturday will effectively end their season.

“Warrington were probably the catalyst for the change of our mindset [in defence] because they tore us apart around the ruck with their quick men,” Dorn said.

“We sat and watched some pretty ordinary video and thought we can’t be like that anymore, and that’s really changed our mentality.

“I think that’s why from that game on we’ve been pretty good in D.”
