Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named his 19-man squad to take on Warrington Wolves this Saturday at St James Park as Magic Weekend hits Newcastle.

Following last week’s fantastic 52-12 win over Leeds Rhinos the Tigers squad is bolstered by the long awaited return of half-back Ben Roberts, who has been on the sidelines for 10 weeks with a niggling foot injury.

Lee Jewitt and Will Maher will miss out, with Ryan Hampshire also returning to the squad.

The match kicks off at 4.45pm and less than 40 tickets in the Milburn Stand remain available to buy now from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes shopping centre. Fans can also buy from the RFL ticketing online hub.

Castleford Tigers official coach travel is now fully booked. Detailed event timings and stadium information can be found at
