U19s ready for Odsal showdown
Posted: Wednesday 31st July 2019 - 6:24 PM
Castleford Tigers U19s will be looking for their third win of the season when they take on Bradford Bulls this Thursday night at Odsal.
The Tigers are coming into this game on the back of two straight defeats; the last of which came against the Huddersfield Giants at the Jungle.
Bradford aren’t doing much better and also come into Thursday’s encounter having lost two of their recent games. A 14-22 loss to the Widnes Vikings was followed by a 46-26 defeat to Leeds Rhinos last Saturday.
Following an injury stacked season, Castleford currently sit 11th in the standings, three points better off than bottom of the table Newcastle Thunder.
Bradford, on the other hand, are currently in ninth position and could jump above Widnes with a win at Odsal.
Last time out Bulls and Castleford locked horns, it was Bradford who won 18-6 at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.
Thursday's game kicks off at 7.30pm down at Odsal stadium. Entry is £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and free for juniors.
Here’s the 19-man squad selected by head coach Tony Smith: Ben Howe, Brad Jinks, Danny Attley, Iwan Orr, Jacob Doyle, Joe Fella, Joe Summers, Jordan Bull, Josh Milnes, Kian Cox, Kian Morgan, Kieran Carr, Kieron Lawton, Lewis Carr, Louis Collinson, Ritchie Westwood, Robbie Storey, Sam Hall.
