CASTLEFORD Tigers, badly missing Rangi Chase's creative skills, lost 40-22 at Leeds Rhinos this afternoon.

The Tigers are floundering in 12th place in Super League after suffering a fourth defeat in five matches and with renewed doubt over the future of Chase (pictured), the reigning Man of Steel and England international, who was left out of the side as a disciplinary measure.

Tries by Brett Ferres (two), Paul Jackson and Craig Huby were not enough for the Tigers.

Ryan Hall, Ben Jones-Bishop and Rob Burrow all touched down twice as defending champions Leeds ran in seven tries at Headingley for the second time in seven days as they built on their 44-40 win over Wakefield which lifted them back into the top eight.
