Super League: St Helens rout Castleford Tigers at Langtree Park
Last Updated: 01/04/13 5:23pm
Tommy Makinson: Was one of seven players to score tries for St Helens
St Helens helped erase the memory of their Good Friday defeat to Wigan by claiming a comfortable 48-18 victory over Castleford at Langtree Park.
Josh Perry and Joe Greenwood both grabbed a brace of tries, while five other players managed to cross the whitewash during the nine-try rout.
The visitors scored three tries in a 15-minute period during the second half but were otherwise completely outplayed as they slumped to a sixth straight loss.
Saints were on top from the start and Mark Percival and Jordan Turner had already threatened when Mark Flanagan crashed over for the first try by the posts.
Justin Carney produced a fine tackle to deny Flanagan a second but Perry made no mistake from close range as he barged over for his first St Helens try.
Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook prolonged the dominance of the Saints pack as he took a short pass and ran through three Tigers defenders to score a third, with Paul Wellens then playing in Greenwood for another score.
Saints were well on top and got a fifth when Wellens was stopped short and the ball was quickly reworked for Greenwood to dive over, making the score 26-0 at the half-time interval.
The hosts continued in much the same vein after the break, Greenwood scooping up a loose ball and sending Percival clear before Tommy Makinson finished the move off.
Adam Swift then went over in the corner and with Percival converting for a fifth - Makinson also kicked one goal - the game was as good as over at 38-0.
The Tigers finally managed to respond as Daryl Clark and Carney broke from deep to go over in quick succession.
Perry restored normality by forcing his way over for another, but Clare broke through some slack Saints defending to claim another Tigers consolation.
Jamie Ellis converted all three of the Tigers' scores but Turner had the final say as he completed the scoring in closing moments.
