Wigan Warriors injected life into their flagging Super League play-off push with a 22-0 victory away to Castleford Tigers in Monday’s match at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Castleford were not helped by Jesse Sene-Lefao being sin-binned for a high tackle on Joe Bullock, while the Warriors had Liam Byrne shown a yellow card early in the second half too.
