Ian Millward calls for focus to be placed on Castleford's on-field performances
Castleford coach Ian Millward said more attention should be paid to his side's performances as opposed to their off-field matters after another encouraging display in their 28-22 defeat to Wigan Warriors.
The Tigers hit the headlines recently with the resignations of chief executive Steve Ferres, commercial manager Nick Fozzard, as well as Sarah Fozzard, the club's marketing manager.
But Millward has urged focus to be placed on his side's on-field improvement after they finished last season second from bottom in the table.
"I'd really appreciate it if all we did was talk about rugby league," said Millward.
"The off-season was all about being a competitive team and what the fans want is for this team to do Cas proud, regardless of the result.
"I felt it was really disrespectful to my players last week; there was a big
story saying 'club in turmoil - media manager leaves'.
"We'd just had a 17-all draw and a great game against Catalan and the whole story was about that. I don't think that's what Cas people want; they're a working-class community and they just want their rugby league team to be really competitive.
"The fans should be really proud of the players at the moment."
Wigan coach Shaun Wane admitted disappointment in his side despite the win, as they failed to build on their first-half superiority.
"I'm happy to get the two points but the manner we got them in I'm a bit disappointed with," said Wane.
"I thought we played well in parts, but we just weren't consistent enough. I'm glad we showed some steel in finishing it off, but that was definitely a get-out-of-jail card and you've got to commend Castleford for coming back."
