Powell names squad to face Leeds
Posted: Wednesday 4th August 2021 - 12:05 PM
Castleford Tigers welcome back a number of senior First Team players ahead of the Betfred Super League clash with Leeds Rhinos on Friday night.
It’s a welcome return to Daryl Powell’s squad for those men subject to them completing the RFL’s return to play protocols during tomorrow’s training session.
Captain Michael Shenton misses out due to a facial injury sustained in the last round against Huddersfield Giants, whilst Jimmy Keinhorst continues his loan spell with the Tigers and is named in the squad, as is youngster Brad Graham who scored his first senior Super League try last time out.
The Tigers and the Rhinos have faced one another twice so far in 2021, both securing a victory, Cas getting the first win on Good Friday 10-18, then Leeds’ visit to The Jungle back in May saw them win 6-66. Both clubs will be eager to have the bragging rights over the other and for Cas, it would be a sweet bit of revenge after the big home loss to Richard Agar’s men.
Castleford travel over to Emerald Headingley for another blockbuster clash against Leeds Rhinos, with kick-off at 7.45pm. Visiting away supporters' tickets and travel arrangements are on sale now, you can find the full details HERE.
