A brawl resulting in two red cards marred Hull's thrashing of Castleford Tigers in the Super League this evening.

Two tries each from Joe Arundel and Tom Lineham had helped the home side to a 28-0 lead before tempers flared on the pitch.

Hull's Danny Tickle and Tigers' Weller Hauraki were both sent off for their part in the incident, while Mark O'Mealey and Brian Carney were shown yellow cards.

However, Arundel and Lineham completed their hat-tricks to ensure an emphatic win for Hull.

A cagey meeting between Warrington Wolves and St Helens resulted in a win for St Helens.
