CASTLEFORD Tigers welcome back Mike McMeeken and Grant Millington for Friday’s Super 8s derby against Leeds Rhinos at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

They replace Matt Cook and Oliver Holmes from the side that won at Huddersfield Giants last Friday.

Tigers coach Daryl Powell said: “We have a real competition for places now as our boys look towards the semi-final.

“The boys want to be in the team that play in that semi-final and if that’s not going to get the best out of people then I’ll be checking for pulses.

“We’ll have no problem having a motivated team taking to the field for these last three Super 8s games.

“From now on in I won’t be making many changes. We have three games left now to get ourselves fine-tuned and toughened up.”
