Had to laugh today when a spokesman for Castleford said that Wigans deduction of 4 points for breaching the salary cap regulations was "The greatest injustice in Rugby League".  Isnt this the same Castleford who also breached the salary cap in the season that they beat Haven in the Grand Final??

The words pot and kettle spring to mind!!
:D :D

[b]Castleford Tigers escaped with a warning from the RFL after also
breaching the ?400,000 cap in League One last year, when they earned
promotion to Super League after beating Whitehaven in the Grand
Cas said they "marginally" overspent on the cap last term, chief
executive Richard Wright adding: "Every effort is made by the club
