Cas confident of Challenge Cup upset at Wigan

Castleford Tigers are undaunted by a difficult trip to Wigan Warriors in this weekend's Challenge Cup quarter finals.

The odds and the formbook are against them. Cas are seventh in the Super League table, while Wigan are second, and the Tigers have already lost twice home and away to the Warriors this season.

Head Coach Darryl Powell and prop forward Lee Jewitt, who made his senior debut for Wigan and whose wife hails from the town, have been speaking to Calendar's John Shires.

Lynch extends stay at Castleford

Castleford prop Andy Lynch has signed a one year contract extension which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2017 and potentially beyond.

The new deal gives Lynch the option to stay with the Tigers for another year if he wants to continue.

The 36-year-old became the oldest active player in Super League at the beginning of this season.

At this time the body feels good, age is just a number, and as long as I still feel I can give it my all then I’ll continue to play. Rugby League has been my life, I enjoy every day working here at Cas and I don’t want it to stop.

– Andy Lynch
