The Castleford outfit had the points in the bag by the break, by which time a 28-0 lead had been established.

Nathan Fozzard and Chris Siddons had raced over inside the first 10 minutes, with Baily O’Connor posting a try at the opening period’s midway point.

Siddons and, as the interval arrived, Calum Butler added touchdowns before, in a more evenly contested second half, Lewis Price nipped over on the hour and Fozzard landed his fifth conversion.

That proved to be the end of the Lane’s acquaintance with the scoreboard - but tries in the last eight minutes by Ian Davidson and Lewis Hosty, the second of which Jamie Greenwood improved, were simply too little, too late for Siddal.

Victory kept Lock Lane in second place, just one point behind leaders West Hull.
