Castleford coach Terry Matterson described his side's win over Huddersfield as a "pretty complete performance" on Saturday.
The Tigers made it two wins from two this season with a comfortable 18-12 victory over the Giants, with two tries from winger Nick Youngquest on his home debut.
After beating Wakefield on the opening day, Matterson did not hide his delight at following up with a win that was more comfortable than the eventual scoreline suggests.
"It was a pretty complete performance," said Matterson. "I thought the halves were outstanding.
"It was a pretty dominant performance, although the scoreline probably doesn't reflect that with the try at the end.
"I think we missed three tackles all game. It was a pretty satisfying performance. I'm pleased with where we're at but we need to be aware that it's only round two."
After watching referee James Child award 37 penalties in his side's 40-20 win over Wakefield, Matterson was delighted that Steve Ganson chose to blow up for just 11 tonight.
The Giants also went into the game on the back of an impressive opening win under the roof of the Millennium Stadium but they struggled to adapt to the difficult conditions on a cold, wet night in West Yorkshire and surrendered possession all too easily.
The decisive moment came after 56 minutes when Giants full-back Scott Grix was tackled over his own line as he attempted to clear the danger and the ball came loose.
Youngquest touched the ball down and video referee Richard Silverwood gave him the benefit of the doubt in awarding the try despite suggestions of an illegal ball steal.
"It was clearly stripped but it doesn't matter," said Giants coach Nathan Brown. "Sides that are hungrier and keenest generally get the benefit of the doubt.
"You could see after five minutes that we weren't where we needed to be. We put in a good 10 minutes after half-time but, other than that, it was very disappointing.
"Full credit to Cas, they were too good for us on the night. It was a good lesson for us. They were more hungry than we were and we gave away more penalties."
