St Helens without four key men as Lee Radford could hand debuts to two Castleford Tigers signings

CASTLEFORD TIGERS go up against world champions St Helens this Sunday at the Jungle, live on Channel 4.

Lee Radford’s men went down 32-30 to Hull FC at the MKM Stadium last weekend, but trailed 32-6 on the hour before rallying for a late surge.

Greg Eden is named for the first time in 2023 whilst Muizz Mustapha and Albert Vete could make their debuts for Castleford.

Meanwhile, Saints, of course, lifted the World Club Challenge trophy courtesy of a Lewis Dodd drop goal in golden point.

Tee Ritson could make his official competitive debut for the Saints whilst youngster George Delaney is also named.

Tommy Makinson is out for Paul Wellens’ men with Will Hopoate, James Roby and Agnatius Paasi also out.
