Momirovski and Miller power Leeds to derby win over Castleford

Paul Momirovski and Lachlan Miller’s doubles set Leeds Rhinos on their way to a 26-6 derby win over Castleford Tigers in the opening match of the Betfred Super League’s Rivals Round on Thursday evening.

The hosts dominated the possession and territory in the first 40 minutes at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle, including forcing five goal-line drop-outs, but were unable to make the most of those opportunities as the sides went in at half-time with the game still scoreless.

Danny Richardson saw a seventh-minute penalty kick to put the Tigers in front rattle off the posts as well, but Momirovski made them pay for those wasted chances with his first try in a Leeds shirt two minutes after the restart.

The former Sydney Roosters centre was in again 10 minutes later, with fellow off-season signing Miller getting in on the act as well with his first two scores for the Rhinos either side of Josh Simm’s consolation for Castleford, who have now lost all six of their Super League games so far in 2024.
