Castleford Tigers 12 Leeds Rhinos 12

Leeds battled back twice to earn a point at Wheldon Road in a bruising Super League encounter.

 Unfortunately the match will be remembered as much for the enthralling action as numerous controversial refereeing decisions.
The first half was even throughout with both sides putting in every effort they could muster. Cas opened the scoring with an early Danny Orr penalty but the Rhinos hit back shortly after when sub Andy Hay created an opening for Lee Jackson and his powerful run saw him bustle over the line – Iestyn Harris converted.
Both sets of forwards showed unbelievable pace and power, although at times it did threaten to boil over. The situation was not helped by a controversial refereeing decision which saw the hosts draw level. Michael Eagar broke down the left and the ball eventually found it's way to John Wells who appeared to touch down after a second movement. However, the referee thought otherwise and did not opt to use the video referee. That, along with Orr giving Cas the lead with the ensuing conversion, seemed to spark a bit of trouble on the field which culminated in a late challenge by Eagar on Darryl Powell that went unpunished. Harris was clearly unhappy and quickly got involved but the referee Stuart Cummins wouldn't hear any of his pleas.

After the break Leeds quickly took the lead through two Harris penalties but just as quickly Castleford took the score to 12-10 when Jason Flowers burst through the Leeds defence and off-loaded to Eagar who beat two would-be tacklers to give his side the lead.
Such was the topsy-turvey nature of the fixture, Leeds quickly equalised through another Harris penalty, but the GB international then proved he was human as he missed his next two efforts. Leeds then had Ryan Sheridan sin-binned as he illegally prevented a Cas try but after less than a minute with a man advantage Brad Davis was also sent for a ten minute rest for laying on in the tackle. Once he returned, he was quickly sent packing to the dressing rooms again with a high-tackle seeing him carried off on a stretcher.
Both sides attempted to force a late drop goal, but they had to settle for a point apiece.
Teams
Cas: Flowers, Gay, Eagar, Rogers, Wells, Orr, Davis, Sampson, Hepi, Sykes, Fritz, Tallec, Vowels. Subs: Ellison, Pickering, Harland, Tonks. Leeds: Harris, Sterling, Godden, Golden, Cummins, Powell, Sheridan, Fleary, Jackson
