Tigers squad to face Salford

Posted: Tuesday 1st September 2020 - 1:00 PM


This fixture now kicks off at 8.15pm on Thursday night live on Sky Sports.

Castleford’s Head Coach makes three changes from the team sheet he posted for Saturday’s game against Wigan with James Clare, Jake Trueman and Daniel Smith making way for Peter Mata’utia, Greg Eden and Bailey Hodgson.

James Clare was taken off the field on a stretcher during Saturday’s match as a precaution, his x-rays came back all clear and returned home safe and sound on Sunday morning. Trueman misses out with a back injury which hampered him in the later stages of the Wigan game, Daniel Smith is currently being assessed with an injury, as is winger Sosaia Feki who has injured his hamstring during training.

Centre Peter Mata’utia is back for selection after serving his two-match suspension and Greg Eden could feature for his third appearance of the 2020 season. 17-year-old England Youth full back Bailey Hodgson is named in the Fords’ 21-man squad and is pushing to make his First Team and Super League debut.
