Tigresses prepare for last test before Cup final

Posted: Saturday 20th July 2019 - 1:56 PM


The game with Wakefield is part of a double header and will kick off straight after the men’s Super League clash with Warrington Wolves. 

Georgia Roche, Rhiannion Marshall, Tara Stanley, Sinead Peach, Shona Hoyle, Kelsey Gentles, Emma Lumley and Emma Slowe will all be rested. 

However, Castleford will be including three players from their dual registration partners, Cutsyke Raidettes. Becky Grady, Ebony Tatterstall and Danielle Turner have all been named in the squad after impressing last Tuesday in a friendly against the Tigresses. 

Grady is no stranger to the Tigresses having already played for the amber and black three weeks ago against Featherstone Rovers. Tatterstall and Turner, on the other hand, are preparing to make their debuts. 

Meanwhile, Lacey Owen is set to make her return after missing six games through injury. She will be joined by Jasmine Cudjoe who returns to the team after a long absence through injuries. Cudjoe will be making her first appearance in over a year. 

Last time these two sides met, Castleford ran out 100-0 winners as they booked a place in the Challenge Cup final.

The club could be in line for yet another record attendance with thousands expected to stay for the women’s game. As mentioned earlier, this game is part of a double header and kick off is expected to be around 5pm. 

Here’s the 18 players squad selected by head coach Lindsay Anfield…
