Both sides came into this game after a week off looking to cement their play-off places and it was Leeds who opened the scoring through winger Scott Donald after a build up of pressure. Castleford hit back immediately and took the lead with a James Evans try in the corner, converted by Joe Westerman.
The Rhinos upped the tempo in the last quarter of the half and ran in four further tries to lead 26-6 at the break. England winger Ryan Hall completed a hat-trick with Kiwi Fullback BrentWebb adding the other score.
