Cas tie could be our Wembley omen!


NATHAN BROWN is hoping the Giants being drawn against Castleford in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup proves a lucky omen.


Huddersfield beat the Tigers in a thrilling last-eight clash at the Galpharm Stadium two years ago and then beat St Helens to reach Wembley.

Brown's men went on to lose to Warrington in the final. But with this year's quarter-final tie to be staged at Castleford on the weekend of July 23 and 24, Brown is looking for the right result at The Jungle and then to go on and see Huddersfield lift the famous old trophy for the first time since 1953.

"I hope playing Cas is an omen, because we'd love to go back to Wembley again," said Brown, left.

"Obviously, the next time we go we'd hope to win it, and maybe the fact it's Cas away this time could make all the difference in the world! But what we do know for certain is that we're going to have to play very well there to win.

"They've obviously beaten us in the last two Super League games there, so that tells us it's not going to be easy."
