CASTLEFORD Tigers youngster James Clare could be in line for only his second senior appearance after being included in the 19-man squad for tonight’s Stobart Super League game away to Widnes Vikings (kick-off 8pm).

The 21-year-old winger made his debut earlier in the season against Huddersfield Giants after impressing in pre-season games.

Josh Griffin is also set to return to the team, having recovered from an ongoing Achilles injury which has ruled him out of the previous two games.

The pair replace Rangi Chase and Richard Owen in the squad that was named ahead of last week’s match with Leeds Rhinos.

Owen will serve a one-match suspension having been charged with a Grade B offence following the defeat to Leeds. Chase is not included in the squad due to being suspended on full pay while the club investigates his actions last weekend.

The full squad is:
