Match Preview


Powell wary of Eagles threat

Castleford coach Daryl Powell will ensure his Super League high-fliers do not take part-time opponents Sheffield Eagles lightly, having masterminded the Challenge Cup's last giant-killing act.


Powell, who played alongside current Sheffield coach Mark Aston for the south Yorkshire club, guided his former team Featherstone to a 23-16 fourth-round win over his current employers in 2012.


"Obviously coaching in that win against Castleford has made me well aware of the possibility of an upset," said Powell.


"I'll be making sure the players are exceptionally well prepared too. Some teams might underestimate lower opposition but we won't do that."
