Castleford v Catalans

This sports betting tip was written by Sandy on June 27th, 2009 at 15:06


The Dragons look far more powerful up front than Cas so they are good value with any kind of start.

Great result for Cas last week, winning at Huddersfield, but it was only their 1st win in 7 games. They defended superbly well and limited the Giants to just 1 try but it has to said we have seen a lot of weak defence from Castleford up the middle of the park. They do seem to struggle against side with good forwards, Warrington and St Helens were both easy winners, and we know this is a huge Catalans pack who love the physical side of the game.

Dragons were quite disappointing last week losing in Spain to Warrington. But it was a close a game which could have gone either way. Their away from in general is not so bad. Yes we seen them get hammered by Leeds and Saints, also Hull Kr, but there have been some good performances and wins at Quins, Celtic and Warrington. If they could just cut out those stupid penalties maybe we will see them challange in the play offs.

Tigers did win in France earlier in the season and deserved it. But that was when the Catalans were low on confidence and had just begun life with a new manager. They look a far more solid outfit now and in my opinion have as much forward power as any side.

Castleford are not so strong up front and ive a feeling they will get overpowered here. Their defence up the middle can be very suspect at times and Catalans forwards can be difficult to stop when they get a role on.

That right hand edge of the Cas defence is not great either, Widders and Chase do miss a lot of easy tackles so Elima should enjoy this match. He gets plenty of trys for the French side by simply crashing over that line. Bosc will be the main man obviously.

I expect the Dragons to bounce back by winning this one so im happy to be betting them with a nice start.
