Sunday 30th August, 13:00, Super League Round 10, Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, Salford Red Devils versus Castleford Tigers Match Fixture

Neither side enjoyed success last weekend, with Salford going down 50-12 against Leeds and the Tigers being defeated by Wigan, 30-22. As such, Castleford sit in sixth in the Super League table now having lost five games from nine. Salford, meanwhile, sit in ninth with just two wins from eight.

The announcement that Niall Evalds will be a Castleford player in 2021 in the build-up to the fixture will only serve to enhance the tastiness of this Thursday afternoon battle.

This is the first time these two sides have played each other in 2020, but Salford have been victorious on the last two occasions against the Tigers, most recently in the 2019 playoffs when they beat the West Yorkshire side 22-0. Prior to those two defeats, however, Castleford had won their last four against the Red Devils.


The loss of Trueman for Castleford and the return of Mossop for Salford will be crucial. Salford by 4
