Opposition Profile

Castleford Tigers Women have been the stand out side in this year’s Betfred Women’s Super League since round one. After falling at the semi final stage against the Rhinos in 2018, the Tigers have been ruthless this year, losing only one league match.

On five occasions, the black and amber have scored over 50 points. They opened 2019 with a 80-0 thrashing of York before putting Wakefield, Bradford, Featherstone and last year’s Grand Final Champions Wigan to the sword at home.

Former Rhino Rhiannion Marshall will be facing her former side for the third time in 2019. She scored in the 2018 Grand Final for Leeds before moving to the Tigers at the end of the season.

KEY PLAYER: The Tigers have had plenty of stand out performers this season. The 2018 Woman of Steel Georgia Roche and Kelsey Gentles, who was nominated for the award this year, have both proved tough for team’s to handle but full back Tara Stanley will be pulling the strings tomorrow night. She has scored 28% of the Tigers’ points this season, crossing for 19 tries and kicking 50 goals over 12 appearances.


Last Time Out

When the two sides met at Emerald Headingley in August, Castleford continued their unbeaten league form, beating the Rhinos 36-26. Two tries from Woman of Steel Courtney Hill plus other scores from Madison Laverick, Char Booth and Elle Frain couldn’t outscore the visitors, who remained top of the league table.


Last Five Games Form

Since hosting Castleford at Emerald Headingley in August, Leeds have remained unbeaten, winning five out of six matches. St Helens are the only side to have taken points from Adam Cuthbertson’s side, drawing 20 all at Ruskin Park at the start of September.

Castleford’s thirteen match winning streak in the league was broken by St Helens at the end of the season. Jodie Cunningham’s try proved the difference but the Tigers’ had already claimed the League Leaders Shield. In all competitions, Leeds are the only other side to beat the Tigers; Courtney Hill’s late break away try helping the Rhinos retain the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup.
