bbc.comGreg Eden's hat-trick helped Castleford Tigers into the Super 8s section of the Super League in third place after a convincing win at bottom-side Widnes.Cas' devastating four-try, seven-minute first-half spell turned the game and established a 28-18 half-time lead after Widnes had led early on.The Tigers scored four tries after the break to bring up the 50-point mark, and secure a third win in four games.
Defeat means Widnes have now lost their past 16 Super League games.Daryl Powell's Castleford finished the 2017 regular season as far and away the stand-out team in Super League, and despite not quite reaching the same heights in 2018, they still finish the 23-game stage ensconced in the top four.Hooker Paul McShane was an influence throughout, with some smart play key to tries for Eden, Oliver Holmes and half-back Jake Trueman.In addition full-back Quentin Laulu-Togaga'e added two scores to his tally while prop Mitch Clark got his first score in Black and Amber.The only sour note for Castleford was the sight of full-back Peter Mata'utia limping on his debut.Patrick Ah Van scored two tries for Widnes while debutant Harrison Hansen crossed in his first appearance following a midweek move from Leigh.Castleford Tigers: Hanbury; Ah Van, Whitley, Inu, Ince; Mellor, Finn; J.
