Tigers batter Broncos to go top, Salford storm back to win
Castleford Tigers moved top of Super League with a 40-6 drubbing of London Broncos and Salford Red Devils produced a storming comeback to beat Hull KR on Saturday.
The Tigers made it three wins out of three to replace Warrington Wolves at the summit, running in seven tries as the Broncos - with just one win out of four since being promoted to the top flight - were outclassed at Trailfinders Sports Club.
Peter Mata'utia went under the posts after taking an offload from Paul McShane and the Tigers led 24-6 at the break following further scores from Jacob Trueman, Junior Moors and Jesse Sene-Lefao.
Rhys Williams' converted try had brought the Broncos level but they were no match for Castleford, who ran away with Liam Watts, Greg Eden and Jordan Rankin adding further tries in the second half.
Salford are up to fourth after showing great character to defeat Hull KR 24-22.
Rovers were in command with a 22-8 advantage at the break following tries from Weller Hauraki, Craig Hall, George Lawler and Jimmy Keinhorst.
Salford came to life in the second half, though, Derrell Olpherts, Ken Sio and Joey Lussick crossing to complete a thrilling comeback.
