Ian Millward: Hailed Danny Orr after Castleford's win

He was an experienced head trying to steady a ship that was finding some holes in it at times.

Coach Ian Millward was full of praise for veteran Danny Orr after he inspired the Castleford Tigers to a last-gasp win over Salford.

The City Reds looked to have the game in the bag at the PROBIZ Coliseum as they led by eight points prior to Orr completing his hat-trick and Craig Huby snatch a dramatic victory.

The Tigers have been struggling of late and Millward was pleased the 34-year-old substitute used all of his experience to help the home side secure the two points.

"You've got to take your hat off to Danny Orr, I thought his performance was outstanding," Millward said.

"He was an experienced head trying to steady a ship that was finding some holes in it at times.

"I just thought it was a really calming performance by a very good pro."

Talent

Millward also praised Huby for his match-winning try, stating he has the potential to win international honours with England.

"He's really talented," he continued. "I don't want to sound like I'm waiting for some mirage to happen but I think next year he's an England front rower.

"He can jump as good as anyone, he can pass as good anyone, he can kick as good as anyone. He's very talented and I'm really looking forward to him developing his game over the next three years."

Millward's opposite number Phil Veivers was furious with Salford's performance in an error-strewn affair and was particularly disappointed with their inability to close out the contest.

"I thought it was a pretty disgusting game to be fair," admitted Veivers.

"Basil (Millward) will have a smile on his face because he's got the two points but I thought it was a pretty disgusting advertisement for rugby league.

"They upped the ante, the upped the tempo. There were two sides out there who looked dead on their feet, one was a little hungrier than the other."
