Castleford coach Daryl Powell says he was pleased with the way his team approached a “dangerous game” and came away with a comfortable win.
The Tigers put Leigh to the sword 44-16. Both Luke Gale and Greg Minikin grabbed doubles.
Powell told BBC Radio 5 live extra: “Once we got to grips with the game we were excellent, I was really happy with large parts of our attack and defence.
“It was always going to be a dangerous game, it was 0-0 for a while and it took a bit to break them down, the conditions are difficult. It’s not summer rugby.
“We scored some smart tries, we looked dangerous and inventive and there were a lot of things to admire about our defence.”
