Squad named for Jungle return

Posted: Wednesday 14th April 2021 - 12:00 PM

Castleford host Leigh Centurions in Betfred Super League action on Friday night at 6pm in what will be the first meeting between the two clubs since 2017.

The Fords are aiming to make it four wins from the first four games in the 2021 season after securing victories over Warrington and Leeds in the league and progressing to the quarter finals of the Challenge Cup with an incredible comeback against Hull KR last Friday night.

Powell makes just one change to the 21-man squad that was named for the match against the Robins last week with Danny Richardson making way for Sam Hall. It marks the first call into the squad declaration for Sam Hall in 2021, a Tigers Academy graduate who made his senior debut against Wigan Warriors back in February 2020.

Leigh will be after their first win of the season after suffering defeats to Wigan and Warrington in the first two rounds of Super League, before exiting the Challenge Cup on Sunday afternoon to Huddersfield.
