Castleford boss Daryl Powell believes Sunday’s 16-12 victory over St Helens was one of the best results he’s ever been a part of.
Powell’s much-changed team trailed 12-4 at the break, but fought back in the second half to see off Saints and move four points clear at the top of the Super League table.
“It’s one of the biggest wins I’ve been involved in,” said Powell.
“For a team that had been played about with to roll into a game against opposition that had a significant rest period on us and a full-strength team and come out with that kind of performance was awesome.
“We had to dig in right at the end and the amount of scrambled tackles to keep them out shows the character we’ve got.
“What we’ve become as a club is we’ve got genuine depth and belief that we’ve got something special here.”
