Andy Lynch joins a select club on Sunday. The venerable Castleford prop, who retires at the end Abraham Almonte Youth Jersey of this season, will become the seventh player in the Super League era to reach 500 club Men's #60 Nike Limited A. J. Cann Green NFL Jersey - Jacksonville Jaguars Salute to Service Tank Top appearances and he is in esteemed company.Lynch, who could yet finish his career with the record for Super League appearances, joins Kevin Sinfield, Jamie Peacock and Leon Pryce in one of the game’s most exclusive groups, yet there is one thing missing.While Sinfield, Peacock and Pryce won championships aplenty during their illustrious careers, Super League glory has evaded Lynch, but, at the age of 38, his final season represents his best chance in years to win the title. Castleford are top of the table going into Sunday’s game with Warrington and are overwhelming favourites to reach Old Trafford in October. “To do it for my hometown club would be an incredible achievement for myself and for Castleford,” he said. “But we aren’t getting carried away. It’s good for the fans to be where we are but we’re taking things slowly – nothing is won at this time of the year.”It is a commendable Albert Pujols Authentic Jersey attitude, especially as the sense of excitement in Castleford, a town of 40,000 people, is palpable.The club have waited their entire 91-year history to be crowned champions of England but under the commendable work of Daryl Powell that drought could end: a point not lost on Lynch, whose closest call to winning the title came when he watched from the stands as a Bradford player in 2005.“I love this club and I will always be a Castleford fan,” he said. “Bringing a trophy home would just be a brilliant way to sign off on a career I have truly loved. To bring a trophy back to this club and this town would mean everything to me.”While Cas attempt to remain four points clear at the top, Warrington, last year’s Grand Finalists, find themselves in the bottom four and face an unlikely battle against relegation in the Qualifiers. Lynch, however, is adamant the league leaders will not take their opponents lightly.“We know Warrington will be tough. They’re due a good performance and this run they’re on can’t last for ever. But it’ll be a special day; just to be named among those players who’ve made 500 appearances is a great honour and something to look back on in years to come.”Lynch’s career has lasted so long he spent his teenage years playing against Powell. If player and coach can bring the championship to Castleford it would be a fitting finale to a career that undoubtedly makes Lynch one of the finest of his era.Tom Briscoe scored two the Super League table with a 18-16 victory at Wakefield.The Rhinos, temporarily deposed by Hull’s win at Salford on Friday, conceded quick-fire scores to trail 10-0 after 11 minutes but ran in two tries either side of the half-time to claim their third win in four games.Trinity responded with their third try with seven minutes left but it was too late to prevent the visitors’ third successive win at Belle Vue, now known as the Beaumont Legal Stadium.The result brought to an end a run of six straight wins for a Trinity side that have impressed so many during the past two months. Yet Trinity took an early lead thanks to Mason Caton-Brown’s fifth try in three games and Kyle Wood’s dart over from 15 yards.Stevie Ward replied for the Rhinos and Leeds were quickly in again as Callum Watkins put Briscoe over. Trinity held out to maintain their 10-8 advantage into the break.Briscoe’s second try gave the Rhinos the lead for the first time and they extended their Men's Majestic Philadelphia Phillies #5 Michael Saunders Replica Cream Alternate Cool Base MLB Jersey lead shortly afterwards thanks to Joel Moon. Ben Jones-Bishop replied for Wakefield but they could not find a winner.Jake Mamo produced a man-of-the-match performance as Huddersfield Giants moved into the Super League top eight with a 56-12 win over Catalans Dragons in Perpignan.Mamo scored four tries for the Giants, while Jermaine McGillvary and Danny Brough both crossed twice, and Aaron Murphy and Shannon Wakeman completed the scoring.Catalans showed no sign of turning their form around –they have now won only one of their last eight matches and sit precariously in the bottom four.
