With the 2021 Betfred Challenge Cup Final taking place six days after this Round 14 match at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle, Castleford’s Head Coach has called up four Tigers Academy players who have been allocated their first senior squad numbers.

Caelum Jordan, Jack Sadler, Adam Rusling, and Nathan Magee, who alongside Cain Robb, could be set to make their top-flight debuts on Sunday. All five young players have come through the youth system at the club, making a total of 13 players named in this 21-man squad declaration as Castleford Tigers Academy products.

Senior squad men Grant Millington, Cheyse Blair, Jesse Sene-Lefao, and Greg Eden are also up for selection following injuries.

It will be the third meeting of the season between Castleford and Salford, with the Tigers victorious in both. Firstly, in the league away at the AJ Bell Stadium at the end of April by 18-28, and then securing passage to the semi-final of the Challenge Cup with a dramatic golden point victory 19-18.
