Warrington Wolves kept up their winning Super League run in dramatic fashion as they snatched victory over Castleford Tigers on Thursday.
Trailing 10-6 with two minutes to go, Matty Ashton – who had surgery on a serious hamstring injury only six months ago – gathered Ben Currie’s pass and dived under the posts to level the scores.
Stefan Ratchford’s conversion secured a 12-10 win for the Wire, their seventh victory in a row, as Danny Richardson’s missed kick proved key for the disappointed Cas.
Castleford took the lead in the contest through a try from Gareth O’Brien, but Anthony Gelling ensured the scores were level at 6-6 at the break.
Derrell Olpherts scored the Tigers’ second try, which looked to be enough for the home side before Ashton’s late intervention.
In the earlier match, Hull FC survived a fightback from Wakefield Trinity to claim a 26-23 win.
Two tries each for Adam Swift and Jordan Lane, as well as a score from Andre Savelio, were enough for Hull to take the win despite Connor Wynne’s late sin-binning and Kelepi Tanginoa’s double.
