Powell slams his players

Castleford coach Daryl Powell has apologised to his team’s fans and taken aim at his players after they were thrashed by 44 points by Warrington.

The Tigers slumped to their third loss in a row. They were completely outclassed by the Wire who romped to a 56-12 win.

Powell said his players need to change their mindset and work ethic.

“A performance like that is quite unrecognisable from what we’ve become,” he said.

“Warrington annihilated us in every department. We were soft in every way. We just weren’t good enough, not at the races tonight.

“I want to apologise to the Castleford fans. We’ve just had  really honest conversation in the changing rooms. There needs to be changes, changes in the way they’re going about things.”

Things could get worse for Castleford with new injuries to Andy Lynch, Frankie Mariano and Matt Cook.

“Lynch has a bad knock, Mariano had a knock on his knee,” Powell said.

“Cook got a neck injury that looks dangerous and is in an ambulance going off to hospital now.”

Castleford are already without the likes of Ben Roberts, Luke Dorn and Oliver Holmes.
