DRAGONS CATALAN 39 – CASTLEFORD TIGERS 30
With Mike Thomas
What an exciting match. Full of power, pace, good skill levels and ferocious tackling. A great advert for the thirteen aside game. There were mistakes, but, in many ways this added to the suspense, even for a committed Union man.
The Dragons stormed into a 30-6 half time lead and at this point it looked like a ‘’massacre’’ of Millenium Stadium standards was on the cards. Within three minutes of the second half the spirited Tigers scored two excellent converted tries to bring the score back to 30-18. A further try by the Dragons was followed by another two in quick succession by Castleford. With the score at 36-30 the voiciferous Castleford support (approx.1000) were going berserk.
