Joe Arundel and Tom Lineham scored hat-tricks as Hull crushed a poor Castleford side 52-0 in a bad-tempered match which at one stage featured just 22 men on the pitch.

Australian stand-off Daniel Holdsworth marked his return from injury with an excellent display and in the first half he produced two huge bombs to create tries for Richard Horne and Lineham.

Lineham also grabbed an interception try inside the opening 40 minutes, and Arundel benefited from some good fortune to cross for his first score, with Danny Tickle booting three goals.

In the second half Hull added tries through Arundel and Lineham's third, before a 26-man brawl broke out, leading to red cards for Tickle and Weller Hauraki and a pair of yellow cards, making it an 11-a-side contest.

Arundel grabbed his hat-trick try, with Houghton and Josh Bowden also crossing under the posts to complete the nine-try demolition and give Hull their first clean sheet at the KC.

Hull received a relieving penalty after four minutes, and on the last tackle Holdsworth sent up a towering kick. Jordan Tansey mistakenly let the ball bounce and Lineham pounced and offloaded for Horne to dive over in the corner. Tickle added the extras.

Two minutes later and Hull were over again as Justin Carney lost the ball in the tackle, and Arundel picked up the pieces to crash over after evading one defender. Tickle converted from the touchline.

The hosts extended their lead after 31 minutes when Rangi Chase's pass deflected off Hauraki's shoulder and into the hands of the gleeful Lineham who raced 30 metres to score.

Another error let the home side in for their fourth try, as this time Clare was unable to deal with Holdsworth's kick and Lineham was in the right place to collect and score his second try.

In the second half Arundel added his second from a short pass from Horne, and Lineham grabbed his hat-trick try a couple of minutes later with Horne again the provider, this time with the boot.

Tickle converted both before the game turned ugly after 50 minutes and descended into a mass brawl. Referee Steve Ganson sent off Tickle and Hauraki, while sin-binning Carney and Mark O'Meley.

With just over 20 minutes to go Arundel slid over for his hat-trick, before Bowden broke the line and cleverly stepped past full-back Tansey to bring up the 50-point mark with his first try for the club.
