Super League: Castleford Tigers 30-22 Hull FC

Castleford head coach Craig Lingard:

“You’ve got to enjoy these nights but you’ve got to make sure you don’t get carried away, because it’s just one victory.

“We are a long way from the finished article, but after the abysmal second-half performance against St Helens, to come back and win a game like that is a good thing.

“The message today was to be boring. We gifted Hull two tries and it was frustrating to go in at half-time only eight points up, because I thought we’d managed the game really well.

“We’re still learning. We seem to be having two weeks when we’re really good and two when we’re not, but we’re taking these little steps forward, and next week at Leeds is another of those tests for us.”

Hull FC interim head coach Simon Grix:

“I thought we regrouped quite a bit from London but as far as the game goes we blinked first, and after fighting our way back for half-time, the second half went much the same way.

“With 15 minutes to go we decided we wanted to play and started playing how we’d practised.

“Often when the scoreboard’s gone teams find they have that energy, and the challenge for us is to find it earlier.

“The London game was the low point so far – we didn’t look like a team that was committed to the badge. But tonight we certainly took a step forward. It’s not what we want just yet, but it was an improvement.”
