Bradford, by 16-18.

I'm feeling confident... not really, but hopefully we'll come good.

Narrow win for the Bulls here I think. Home advantage on the back of an improvement from last week. The Tigers have had two good performances so far and we'll need to shut down Chase and the centre pairing in particular.
Integrity is shown when no-one is looking.

Chase is banned, so advantage Bulls IMO.

Sorry Cas, but No Chase means No Chance.

Course, I'll most probably be wrong again.

Ha ha, I've been caught out too many times underestimating Cas, so I ain't doing it again!

For all that, I have to say I slightly fancy us, being at home and then with them having Chase out, it cancels out our loss of Gale and maybe having to move Kearny to FB again. I think they know they underpreformed last week at Hull so there should be plenty of desire.

Hopefullly though, If Platty is out then I hope they put, say Whitehead, in at centre, rather than putting Foster in the threequarters and dropping BK in at fullback again. Donaldson or Addy can come in for second row wthout skipping a beat. Elliott's played centre before and didn't look out of place, for me it's the best move rather than moving two and three players around.

Castleford Tigers head coach Ian Millward has named his 19-man squad ahead of the side’s away fixture against Bradford Bulls on Saturday.

Kirk Dixon has recovered early from his calf tear to re-join the squad whilst Mason has been left out following a hamstring injury picked up before the the Rhinos game last week. His progress will be reassessed next week.

Warrington Wolves’ Gareth O'Brien has been brought in on a month’s loan to replace Rangi Chase who received a two match for a Grade B reckless strike on full-back Zak Hardaker in the 63rd minute of Sunday's fixture against Leeds Rhinos. Despite the club's disappointment, the move follows its decision not to appeal the ban. 21 year old O'Brien made 11 appearances and scored three tries and 28 goals for the Wolves in 2012.

Head coach Ian Millward said, “I have been an admirer of Gareth’s for some time and Tony Smith speaks highly of him as both a person and a player. Warrington currently has no injuries in their half backs so they were happy to loan him out and give him some good playing experience.”

Kick off at Odsal Stadium is 4.45pm.

Tigers 19:

1 – Richard Owen 2 – Justin Carney 3 – Michael Shenton 4 – Jake Webster 5 – Kirk Dixon 7 – Jamie Ellis 8 – Jonathan Walker 9 – Daryl Clark 10 – Craig Huby 11 – Lee Gilmour 12 – Weller Hauraki 13 – Grant Millington 14 – Jake Emmitt 15 – Adam Milner 16 – Nathan Massey 17 – Oliver Holmes 18 – Jordan Thompson 19 – Jordan Tansey 26 – Gareth O’Brien

First game back for me after the bitter taste of the goings on last season that still upset me.

Don't expect a classic, just reading the T&A and a heavy pitch is expected. Hmm. Anyhoo, welcome back! Your round yeh?!
