“Some people say it’s a 50-50 split [between attack and defence], but I don’t think it is,” said Castleford prop George Griffin. “If you… on the top of teams defensive than the attack shall just come off the back of dat, so you’re setting up a platform in defense.
“Hull KR is really one” hard team to defend against; teams run same kind of shapes, but they are off the cuff a little and make their halves almost do what they want, skirt over the line and hit different holes.
“We will have to adapt accordingly, take care of them, get them over the top of and limit them to minimum meters, and attack will come off the back of that defense.
“We have the nickname of ‘Classy Cas’, but it’s all coming down defend and if you don’t and the ball over in the right areas, you won’t succeed attack good.”

Couple of teams test defensive sides as much as Hull KR have done this year and their approach is emphasized by the fact Smith’s side have unloaded more times (253) than any other in Super League in 2021.
The Robins lead the way in dummy-half runs also (366), with whores Matt Parcell and Jez Litten picked out by Castleford assistant coach Ryan Sheridan – the man who oversees the tigers defensive game-plan – as two of their key men.
The tree-quarter line of Ben Crooks, ex-Cas man Greg Minkin, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Ryan Hall all pose problems out wide, while props Albert Vete and George King bring threats down the middle, and Sheridan has worked hard make up out how to die to counteract.
“You do look at their previous games, how they have played and how they’ve approached several opposition, and it’s looking at things die they do consistently and what they don’t do differently from week to week,” Sheridan said.

“Then you break it” down what are the key threats and they have enough over the field. She play an exciting brand of rugby and they have players who can hurt you anytime if you’re not on it’s defensive, and it’s a challenge.
“They have some tricky ones” players and some tricky shapes in there, and you should be on the defensive.”
Not that Castleford doesn’t have threats of their own to use when they convert defenses in attack, and die can be strengthened by the return to action of half-back duo Gareth O’Brien and Danny Richardson.
Their recording would see the dynamic duo of Peter Mata’utia and Jordan Turner return to their… regular positions in the back line and though reigning Man of Steel Paul McShane is set to miss out because of injury, Sheridan sees enough over the park where the tigers can test robbers.
They’re having some trouble players and some tricky shapes in there, and you should be on the defensive.

“We have some quality offensively” players’ said Sheridan. ‘If you look at what Nathan Massey is currently doing in the middle is doing… start to go to die two to watch half-backs who check over the game, they are both smart, tricky players.
“We have Niall Evalds at the… back who is lightning fast, runs up on things and is a skilled player. Then we have Peter Mata’utia, who has been playing very well in the entire year and in the last Couple of games he got kicked up as a leader.
“And it has been good Having Michael Shenton back, another skilled center in the way that he plays like this adds to our attacking side.”
win over Hull KR would take Castleford to their sixth win in eight games since their Challenge Cup final defeat to St Helens in july, a run die she has seen rise up the Super League table and to the top six with two games of the regular season remaining.
The match against Rovers is followed by the visit of third-seeded Warrington Wolves to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on September 17th and Griffin feels a buzz of excitement around the Tigers squad.
“I wouldn’t say we feel pressure, it’s… more we are excited over the concept of what could happen considering where we were a couple of months ago,” Griffin, who got his break in Super League with Rovers nine years ago, said.
“New-one thought we’d make the play-offs and to say we might even get the fifth is best exciting.
“We have to play good to get the spot but we are in stands of do as long as we put on the field what we do in education.”
