Three changes for unbeaten Castleford Tigers
Castleford Tigers have made three changes to their 19-man squad this week, as they go in search of a fifth consecutive victory in the Super League when they face Hull FC.
Head coach Daryl Powell has omitted Luke Dorn – the man who scored the winning try against champions Wigan last week. Jordan Tansey returns to the squad, and will likely go straight back in at full-back.
Kirk Dixon – who suffered a broken jaw after a challenge from Wigan’s Michael McIlorum – is also out, as is Scott Wheeldon. Jamie Ellis and the returning Jake Webster step into the squad in their place. Webster has not featured for the Tigers in almost a year, after suffering an injury during a match against Hull Kingston Rovers last March.
He did appear for the Castleford Tigers’ dual-registration club, York, last weekend. Boss Powell admitted Webster had come through that clash unscathed, and he now looks set to feature for Cas this weekend.
Castleford Tigers 19-man squad to face Hull FC (Mend-A-Hose Jungle, Sunday, 3:30pm): Tansey, Shenton, Webster, Carney, Sneyd, Lynch, Milner, Huby, Millington, Hauraki, Massey, Clark, Holmes, Mariano, Ellis, Owen, Channing, Fleming, Finn.
