The Castleford coach, John Joyner, praised Kiwi scrum-half Frano Botica's telling contribution to the victory over Bradford Bulls.

"Botica kept going and came up with something when we needed it," Joyner said of the former All Black.

"Andrew Schick had possibly his best game for us," Joyner added. "We learnt from previous defeats when we had been in positions like that and let it slip."

The Bradford coach, Brian Smith, said: "We had three chances to score early on and missed them. Tough decisions went against us and two of Castleford's tries came out of nothing."
