BBC Sport - Castleford Tigers: Luke Gale impressing at half-back

In-form Gale helping Tigers roar

Castleford might have missed out on Super League's top four in 2015 but it has not stopped Luke Gale making a real impression from half-back.

The Tigers slipped out of contention for the top four after a bruising, all-action defeat by Huddersfield earlier this month but followed up that setback with an excellent performance to beat Super 8s leaders Leeds 29-22 last time out.

Gale, 27, is in line for a first England call-up this autumn when Steve McNamara's side host New Zealand for a three-Test series in November.

Super League Show pundits Luke Robinson of Huddersfield and Leigh coach Paul Rowley discuss Gale's international hopes and what makes a top-class playmaker.
