Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has dedicated Saturday’s Magic Weekend victory over Wakefield Wildcats to the fans who have given him a warm welcome since he took over.

Powell has been delighted with the response he has had personally and also pleased with the way the fans have been supporting the team in his two matches in charge – even though both have involved travels.

He said: “The Castleford supporters really enjoyed themselves at the Magic Weekend and on a day like that it’s really more important than anything else.

“I was really pleased for them. They have been getting behind the team massively even though we have had some big travels ince I came in.

“At Catalan even though we lost they really got behind the team and it really does help.

“Again they were magnificent at the Etihad and it was a great atmosphere. We were delighted to get the win for them.”
