Tigers Squad Announced

Posted: Friday 18th January 2019 - 4:53 PM


The Tigers travel to Emerald Headingley on Sunday, 20th January (3pm) to take on the Rhinos for Kallum Watkins’ testimonial game and to contend for The GR Electrical Cup.

This will be the final pre-season friendly for the Tigers before they launch their 2019 Betfred Super League campaign with a home clash with Catalans Dragons on Friday, 1st February.

Castleford’s squad for this game is considerably more akin to the team that will line up against the Dragons than the team that faced Featherstone over the festive period.

Fans will get the first look at new signing Jordan Rankin in a Castleford Tigers shirt after his move from Huddersfield Giants while Alex Foster returns to action after a long stint on the sidelines with a Lisfranc injury.

Greg Minikin, Jake Trueman and Matt Cook also will return to the field after ending last season injured.

Included in the squad is youngster Calum Turner, who will be hoping to add to his five Super League appearances from 2018 while Cory Aston will also play after impressing against Featherstone last time out.

Tickets are still available from the Tigers Den in Carlton Lanes and the Castleford Tigers Sports Super Store in Xscape Yorkshire. Coach travel is available at just £10 per seat.
