Since they first met in a pre-war Challenge Cup tie Saints and Castleford have battled neck and neck for supremacy.

St Helens have won eight of the previous 14 meetings but there have been one or two close encounters - and prepare for something similar at the weekend.

Both sides have had crushing victories in the past and one only needs to turn back the clock 12 months to recall the Tigers 53-10 hammering of their rivals in the sixth round while Saints also topped the half century mark when blitzing the Tykes 58-16 at the Jungle in 1996.
