19-Man Squad v Catalan Dragons

Castleford Tigers Head Coach Ian Millward has named his 19-man squad ahead of the side’s home fixture against Catalan Dragons on Sunday.

Aside from the suspended Rangi Chase, Millward has had the benefit of a full strength squad to select from. Gareth O’Brien is back in the 19 despite the big hit that saw him leave the field after just four minutes of the Bulls game last week and Mason returns having recovered from a hamstring injury which has seen him miss the last two matches.

Following the off field disruption at the club this week, Millward said, “We’re very strong as a group behind Jack Fulton (chairman), he’s very hard working and this club does not exist without him.”

He is, nevertheless, keen to ensure the players keep firmly focussed on what they need to do on the rugby field. He continued, “We’re really full of ourselves as a group at the moment, we have a rugby league team playing and working hard for each other. We have a job to do on Sunday and we’ll get on and do it.

“We don’t have Rangi this week but we have worked hard in the off season on our structures for when Rangi isn’t available and we’ve been boosted by Gareth O’Brien passing his head test. He’s a talented kid and was unlucky with what happened to him last week. With him on the field for 80 minutes things could have been different.

“We need to be better with possession than last week and having Gareth fit should help with that. I want to see quicker line speed but above all, I want us to be competitive for 80 minutes. It is going to be a tough game on Sunday so we really need that same atmosphere and support that we had at home against Leeds.”

Kick off at the Wish Communications Stadium is 3.30pm.
