Powell names Giants 19-man squad
Posted: Friday 16th August 2019 - 12:00 PM
Castleford Tigers Head Coach Daryl Powell has announced his 19-man match day squad to take on Huddersfield Giants.
The Tigers head to the John Smiths Stadium for a second time this season to face Simon Woolford’s Huddersfield Giants for the third time in 2019. The match will take place this Sunday, 18th August, with kick off at 3pm after being moved from the originally scheduled Friday night slot.
There is just one change to the side that was announced for the previous round against London Broncos, Greg Minikin steps back in whilst Chris Clarkson comes out of the squad that will take on the Giants.
Castleford will be looking to make it back-to-back victories following the win over London at home last Saturday evening, and continue their bid for a playoff spot come the end of the campaign. Meanwhile Huddersfield will be hunting for points to secure Super League survival heading into Round 26 of Betfred Super League 2019 they sit in 10th level on points with Wakefield and Hull KR.
The last time the Tigers faced the Giants was at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle in June and was decided by a dramatic Golden Point drop goal which Peter Mata’utia slotted over into a jubilant Wheldon Road End. However when Cas last visited the John Smiths Stadium in April it was Woolford’s men who came away the victors 20-18 in a tight match. So it’s one-all between Castleford and Huddersfield in 2019, you can join us for the decider this Sunday!
