Official Match Report

St Helens ended the Betfred Super League season as they began it seven months earlier with a comprehensive home win over Castleford Tigers.

It was not as emphatic as the 46-6 victory at the Totally Wicked Stadium in February but the 26-0 margin was comfortable enough for the leaders, who warmed up nicely for their semi-final against Warrington Wolves next Thursday.

Forward Matty Lees scored his first try for the club and full-back Ben Barba, whose end-of-season departure was confirmed this week, touched down twice to take his final tally in the league campaign to 28.

Morgan Knowles also crossed for Saints in the opening half while Danny Richardson kicked five goals. 

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “It was a disappointing performance from us. I thought we started well but then we made too many errors and physically St Helens were way too good for us.

“If we had played until Wednesday, I don’t think we’d have scored. They defended well and our attitude wasn’t where it needed to be. Sometimes that happens leading into a big game.

“But we’ll be right next week, I’m confident of that, we’ve just got to make sure the team we know we can be turns up next week."

St Helens coach Justin Holbrook said: “It was an awkward game for both sides. Neither team were near their best.

“I’m happy with the performance, it was great to be able to keep them to nil and we can look forward to next week.”
