Semi-Final Squad News

Posted: Wednesday 3rd October 2018 - 11:53 AM


Powell welcomes back Matt Cook, Greg Eden, Oliver Holmes, Mike McMeeken and captain Michael Shenton for the big match that will lead the winning team to Old Trafford.

The Tigers will be backed by a huge army of support on the night, with over 4000 Castleford fans heading over the M62 to back their team.

The end goal is huge and the rivalry between the two clubs is intense. Speaking today Daryl Powell said: “Myself and Shaun Wane have had a real good rivalry over the years and I think some of that has come from my willingness not to accept that we’re going to be beaten by the ‘bigger’ clubs,”

Powell added: “I think it’s great to have rivalry and a competitive nature in sport, that’s what it should be about and we’ve created a pretty special rivalry between our two clubs and this is going to be, as a result of that, an awesome game on Friday night and I think there’s going to be a fantastic atmosphere and may the best team win.”

Under 400 tickets remain available for Tigers fans to join the party on Friday night. Head into the retail stores in Xscape or Carlton Lanes to purchase yours, alternatively buy online here and collect your tickets on arrival on Friday night at the Warriors ticket office. Tickets will go off sale online at 2:00pm today. Subject to availability tickets will be available to be purchased in store until 1:00pm on Friday.
