Former Askam junior Jacques O’Neill rounded off a great week by scoring his first Super League try in Castleford Tigers’ 20-6 victory against bottom side London Broncos last Saturday.

O’Neill, who signed a new contract with the Tigers two days previously, struck with the third of their four tries at The Jungle after coming off the bench as his side rose to fifth in the table

Haverthwaite’s Will Maher was also an interchange in a match in which Tuoyo Egodo scored two tries for Castleford, with Oliver Holmes bagging their other score and Brock Lamb getting London’s consolation.

“We played on a Saturday night, the crowd was low and it wasn’t a great atmosphere. We certainly didn’t help that.”
