Tigers squad to face Wire named

Posted: Tuesday 8th September 2020 - 12:00 PM

Castleford’s Head Coach makes two changes from the team sheet he posted for last Thursday’s game against Salford Red Devils with James Clare and youngster Lewis Peachey stepping in, whilst 18-year-old Bailey Hodgson and Jesse Sene-Lefao step out.

Less than two weeks after being taken off the field on a stretcher as a precaution due to a ‘crusher’ tackle, James Clare could return to action against Warrington, whilst Academy graduate Lewis Peachey will be aiming to make his second Super League appearance in 2020 on Thursday night.

Should Adam Milner feature it will mark his 250th game for Castleford Tigers, a wonderful achievement for the 28-year-old and one of the club’s #ONECLUB men. In the current Cas squad, only captain Michael Shenton has more club appearances than Milner.

After securing their first victory since the season restart, Castleford will be looking to make it back-to-back wins as we start a hectic week with another match to play on Sunday afternoon in the Challenge Cup against Hull FC.

The Tigers have faced Warrington once already in 2020 back at the start of March at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, it was a low scoring and tight affair which was settled by a late drop goal by Blake Austin.
