Warrington 12-24 Castleford

Castleford kept alive their Super League top six hopes with a hard-earned victory at relegation-threatened Warrington.

The Tigers went ahead after four minutes when Danny Orr sent Michael Eagar over, with Wayne Bartrim landing the first of three goals before the break.

When Lee Briers kicked dead from the re-start Bartrim made the Wolves pay by booting the penalty from halfway.

Castleford opened up a 14-0 lead when winger Neil Pryce collected Orr's long pass to go over.

Warrington had to wait until the 18th minute for their first points with a penalty from Briers.

Then Nathan Wood went over for their first try just before the break with Briers' penalty making the interval score 14-8.

Warrington had a Wood try disallowed for offside before the Tigers took charge when Orr was again the provider for Andy Johnson to dummy his way over.

The Wolves gave themselves some hope when Briers dummied his way over but the Welsh stand-off missed the simple conversion.

Orr was wide with a drop goal attempt before youngster Wayne Godwin went over from dummy half in the last minute with Bartrim adding his fourth goal from five attempts.
