Posted: Thursday 7th February 2019 - 11:08 AM

The academy are back in action this Saturday when they face St Helens in a pre-season friendly at Castleford Panthers. The match will be the under-19s’ only warm up ahead of the 2019 league season after their match against Huddersfield Giants was postponed last weekend due to a frozen pitch.

Meanwhile, the scholarship get back underway with a local derby against Wakefield Trinity on March 6th to kick-off their eight-game league competition.

Full fixture lists for both sides can be found here:



Speaking about the new season, Head of Youth Darren Higgins said: “Ultimately we want to produce more players who go on and play first team rugby. We’ve set ourselves some internal targets for lads making Super League debuts and lads making the England squad, in addition to Yorkshire at U16 and U18 level as well.

“We’re also really happy with what we’ve got in our U16 setup and we’re looking to make a good number of signings there.

“There are no targets in terms of winning games or winning the competition, although that’s obviously part of their learning and developing.

“Player production is why we’re here and how we’ll judge our success.
