COACH Ian Millward was delighted with Castleford's display in Sunday's 52-6 win against Huddersfield Giants.

The Tigers returned to form in style with their biggest Super League win of the season, running in eight tries.

"We had eight players out and a display like that takes a fair bit of guts and attitude," said Millward (pictured).

"We had a high completion rate and great kicking game.

"What we've lacked in previous games is an inability to hold the ball but today we had an 90 per cent completion rate in the first half and 88 per cent in the second.

"We got what we deserved - a comprehensive win. We only conceded one try and that was from a kick. It was a pretty dominant performance."

Former Hull half-back Jamie Ellis scored a try and kicked 10 goals on his Castleford debut.

Said Millward: "If you are a Cas fan I think you'd be pretty excited about the debut of Jamie Ellis who was very good.

"Ellis and Danny Orr were outstanding with their kicking games."
