Squad Confirmed

Posted: Tuesday 11th September 2018 - 12:04 PM

Powell makes two changes to his squad who booked a Semi-Final spot with a win over Hull FC last week. Oliver Holmes (hamstring injury) and Will Maher are out, making way for the return from injury of Jesse Sene-Lefao and Greg Minikin.

The Tigers boss has been pleased to see his team’s defence improve in recent weeks. Speaking today Powell said: “This week is an opportunity for us to keep improving, I think we’ve been defending incredibly well and we want to do that again. Huddersfield caused us a lot of trouble when they played us here a few weeks ago and we’re going to have to improve on that performance.”

Powell knows the Giants are in good form and will be a handful on Thursday night: “They are a good team and the difficulty at the start of the season was not having some of their best players available. Once they got their players back they’ve started to look a threat. Obviously, the coaching change has made a big difference. Simon Woolford has done a good job and they look like they have a lot of confidence and belief about themselves.”

Tickets are available to purchase now from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes, from the Castleford Tigers Sports Superstore in Xscape and via the Tigers online box office here. Fans can save £2 per ticket by pre-purchasing tickets instore prior to game day.
