Posted: Thursday 13th February 2020 - 12:00 PM
Daryl Powell has announced his 21-man squad for Saturday’s match against Catalans Dragons.
After a strong start, Castleford will be hoping to make it three wins from three to start the new season after overcoming Toronto in Round one and defeating a tough Wigan side in last week’s home opener.
Ever the dangerous side in Perpignan, the Tigers will face a tough test against the Dragons after falling to defeats in their previous two trips to France. Meanwhile the hosts will be looking for their first win of the 2020 Super League season after an opening week defeat to Huddersfield, and having their game against Wakefield Trinity last week postponed due to Storm Ciara.
Daryl Powell has been able to name several returning names in the squad of 21,bincluding forward Mike McMeeken, to possibly make his 2020 debut after a calf injury, as well as duo George Griffin and Tyla Hepi who have both been cleared to play after suffering a head injuries in Round One.
Meanwhile Junior Moors is again named among the 21 and received a very positive reception on his return to action against Wigan after a long spell on the sidelines with a hip injury and after an impressive outing on his senior debut last week, 17-year-old Sam Hall could feature again alongside fellow youngsters Brad Graham and Robbie Story.
Supporters not at the game will be able to stay up-to-date with updates on Tigers’ social media channels and don’t forget that next week, Wakefield Trinity will be at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle for the “Bragging Rights” match.
