I made the shrewd decision not to. We are severely lacking in the pack and will continue to struggle unless that is sorted. Whether George Burgess is the (partial) answer to our problems remains to be seen.

Castleford (14) 32
Tries: Blair, Olpherts 2, Clare 2, Holmes Goals: Richardson 4
Wakefield (15) 15
Tries: Westerman, Johnstone Goals: Hampshire 3 Drop Goals: Miller

Castleford came from behind to ease to a derby win over Wakefield.

Cheyse Blair, Derrell Olpherts and James Clare went over for the hosts but Joe Westerman and Tom Johnstone crossed for Trinity before Jacob Miller's drop goal saw them lead 15-14 at the break.

Clare's second put the Tigers back in front just after the restart.

Trinity's James Batchelor was sent to the sin-bin for a professional foul and Ollie Holmes and Olpherts both went over when Wakefield were down to 12.

Castleford Tigers have signed versatile back Jack Sanderson on a deal until the end of the 2020 season, with an option for a further year. The 21-year-old reached the end of his contract with fellow Super League club Hull FC last year, but trained with the Black and Whites during pre-season.
