Powell talks up Tigers' display
Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell was full of praise for his players despite their 24-10 defeat at the hands of Warrington.
The Tigers suffered their first defeat of the Super League season as Jake Mamo's brace helped the Wire secure the two points at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday night.
Despite seeing his side lose their perfect record, Powell feels his side deserve great credit for their performance, especially considering the injured players they are missing.
"I thought we were pretty good tonight to be honest. The opportunities we got in good attacking positions and put down hurt us," he said. "We were playing against a team who had pretty much everybody out there. If you look at the respective benches, you could see we were down on troops.
"I thought we were fantastic in terms of effort and spirit, I'm proud of them. I'm never pleased to lose a game but I'm closer to knowing what I've got than I was last week. The steel and spirit in the club is outstanding."
