Posted: Thursday 4th July 2019 - 11:13 AM


Castleford take on West Yorkshire rivals Leeds Rhinos on Friday 5th July at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle in Round 21 of Betfred Super League, the Tigers will be looking to make it back-to-back wins following a 42-10 home win over London Broncos in the previous round.

Head Coach Daryl Powell makes two changes to his 19-man squad with Greg Eden and Mitch Clark stepping into the side following concussion injuries suffered by both Tuoyo Egodo and Jake Trueman in last Sunday’s match against the Broncos.

Friday night’s opposition will also be looking to make it two wins on the trot following a victory against Catalans Dragons. Leeds sit 9th in the Super League table level on points with the bottom three clubs but separated by points difference.

Both the Tigers and the Rhinos have one win each in The Clash series of matches in 2019, the first went Leeds’ way after a dramatic Golden Point victory and the second match saw Castleford win by a 22-point margin.

The last two encounters were at Emerald Headingley Stadium but Friday’s edition of The Clash is at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle and you can get your tickets now online and in both the Tigers’ retail stores.
