Shenton: We’ve drawn the toughest tie

Castleford captain Michael Shenton believes his side could not have had a more difficult draw in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup.

The Tigers will host St Helens as they look to secure a place in the last eight and Shenton admitted it will be a game to savour.

“I think we’ve drawn the toughest tie,” Shenton told the BBC. “It’s a bonus that we’re at home, but it doesn’t get much tougher than St Helens.

“We’ve a couple of really important games before that, but the Challenge Cup is a big goal of ours this year and it will be a massive focus for us.

“We’ve been there and know how special it can be. It makes you hungry for more. It’s an exciting challenge, we’ll definitely be up for it.

“It’s the most mouth-watering clash of the round – there will be a few happy teams out there, looking at that draw.

“We’re hungry and we want to be challenging for the trophies this year and these are the games you’ve got to win.

“It’s an exciting challenge and we’ll definitely be up for it.”
