LIVE Castleford Tigers v Hull FC updates from Wheldon Road as Adam Swift gives FC the lead

The Black and Whites are hoping to get back to winning ways this evening
Contrasting emotions at the weekend

To say Castleford and Hull FC experienced very different emotions on Saturday afternoon would be quite the understatement.

The Tigers will have floated out of the Leigh Sports Village after pulling off a shock against Warrington Wolves to seal their play in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

Daryl Powell’s side weren’t expected to progress but they stunned the Wolves and were entitled to celebrate into the night after achieving such a feat.

FC, on the other hand, were left deflated at the final whistle after threatening a remarkable comeback only to miss the chance of another trip to the national stadium.

Players were in tears in the dressing room after the game and, with Josh Griffin’s season ended through an Achilles injury, spirits were low.

As such, Hodgson will have spent this week attempting to pick those players up in training over the last few days and he’ll be hopeful that his side will be able to bounce back in determined fashion on Thursday evening and get the rest of their season underway in the right manner.

Castleford will be keen to avoid defeat to a play-off rival, of course, the fire in Hull’s belly ought to be roaring after their last outing and they’ll be desperate to set the record straight.
