SLIDESHOW: Cutsyke Raiders v Selby Warriors

Newly-formed Cutsyke Raiders under 18s RL team, coached by club stalwart Paul Watson, gave an excellent account of themselves last weekend in their first home fixture in their inaugural season.

The Castleford team started well against Selby Warriors and led for most of the game.

However, the more experienced Selby team adapted slightly better to the poor weather in the second-half to snatch a 34-24 win.
