Carney leads Cas into round five

Centre Justin Carney scored a hat-trick and made another as Castleford eased into the Challenge Cup fifth round with a 48-10 victory over Batley.


Carney twice finished off flowing moves down the left in this first cup meeting between the sides for 32 years.


Luke Dorn and Marc Sneyd were involved before Michael Shenton put in Carney in on 19 minutes.


Castleford were already 6-0 up before then thanks to Carney and Sneyd, who put Dorn in after just five minutes.


Carney again exploited Batley\'s weakness down the left by diving over on 47 minutes.


Batley\'s Achilles\' heel was also exposed on 68 minutes when Carney finished off another flowing move in the left corner.


Sneyd had attacked the soft spot on 55 minutes, with Dorn capitalising in the left corner for his second try of the afternoon.


The visitors earlier made expert use of playing up Mount Pleasant\'s infamous slope in the first half with clever tactics.


Long kicks and pressing high up the field kept Batley, who gave Huddersfield a fright in the cup last year, largely pinned in their own half.


Sneyd, the top goal-kicker in Super League, twice added the extras from out by the left touchline.


Batley hit back on 24 minutes with a stunning solo try from Josh Griffin, who dashed nearly the full length of the field.


Pouncing on a loose ball near his own try-line, Griffin dashed down the left with defenders trailing in his wake. Lee Paterson converted.


The Tigers showed indiscipline on 12 minutes when Scott Wheeldon was warned by referee George Stokes after fisticuffs with Batley\'s Adam Gledhill.


But despite only being 12-6 down at the break there was to be no fairytale for Batley coach John Kear, who played and coached at Castleford.


Playing down the slope in the second half, the Tigers turned the screw with four tries in 13 minutes.


Sneyd broke from deep on 62 minutes and fed substitute Jamie Ellis, who romped clear for an impressive solo converted try.


The sides, who have not played each other in seven years, last met in the cup in 1982, when Castleford ran out 31-6 winners.


Sneyd, who converted his own 64th-minute touchdown, Dorn\'s second and Carney\'s hat-trick try took them past that marker this time.


Late converted scores from Jamie Chase and Wheeldon completed the score for Castleford. Sneyd finished the match with six goals.


Batley got a consolation in overtime through Lee Paterson, who missed the goal kick in front of a 2,482 crowd.
