Wolves hold off Tigers to win

Warrington survived a superb second-half fightback from Castleford to hold on for a thrilling 40-26 victory and cement second place in the Stobart Super League.


Trailing 34-0 in the 53rd minute, the Tigers rallied, scoring 26 unanswered points to give themselves a chance of an amazing comeback, but the Wolves were ultimately too strong and sealed the win with a late Stefan Ratchford try.

Also on Sunday, Wakefield scored 29 unanswered points in coming from 14-6 down to claim a 35-14 win over Huddersfield and ruin coach Paul Anderson's first match in charge of the Giants.

Anderson was fast-tracked into the role of head coach following the sacking of Nathan Brown but he was unable to halt a run of results that has seen the Giants win just one of their last nine matches.

Ben Cockayne, Dean Collis, Lee Smith, Richard Mathers, Tim Smith and Danny Kirmond got the tries for the Wildcats.
