Daryl Powell has named his 19 man squad to take on Hull KR on Friday night.
The Betfred Super League Round 4 match had to be postponed back in March due to adverse weather and will now take place on Friday 1 June at KCOM Craven Park.
Powell makes four changes to his team after last Friday’s loss to top of the table St Helens. Junior Moors, Greg Minikin and Ben Roberts miss out through injury along with James Green. Powell welcomes back Joe Wardle and winger Greg Eden, while Kieran Gill, Tuoyo Egodo and Will Maher could all make their first appearances of 2018 (Maher recalled from a season long loan at Halifax).
Eden has missed the last 8 weeks with a re-occurring hamstring injury but Powell is confident he’s ready to get back his best: “We have been extremely cautious over Greg Eden. He has had a couple of weeks of real serious work in terms of getting himself ready to go. He is a fast athlete so he is more prone to hamstrings than other players. I’m confident he will be ready this time.”
The two teams will battle it out to win the inaugural Roger Millward Trophy to celebrate the life and career of one of rugby league’s all-time greats on Friday night. Having started his career with Castleford where he scored 16 tries and 35 goals during a two-year spell with the club, Roger moved to Hull Kingston Rovers in 1966 and went on to become a legend of the sport, making 406 appearances for the Red and Whites and scoring a club record 207 tries along with 607 goals.
A Great Britain and England international as a player, Roger later served as a coach at Hull KR, committing 25 years’ service in total and was fittingly awarded an MBE for his services to rugby league in 1983 and inducted into the Rugby League Hall of Fame in 2000.
The trophy is modelled on Roger’s famous number six shirt and has been introduced by both clubs with the support of Roger’s family as a way to remember the former Rovers and Castleford icon who sadly passed away in 2016 at the age of 68.
