Second row forward Mike McMeeken could be in line to make his Castleford Tigers debut after being included in the 19-man squad for Friday’s game against St Helens at Langtree Park (kick-off 8pm).

Hoping to make the final 17, former London player McMeeken said: “I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity by Powelly and I cannot wait to make my debut for such a great and well supported club.

“All the boys have been working hard in training and will be ready to fight for the two points this Friday.”

Matt Cook could also make his competitive debut for the Tigers after overcoming a hamstring injury, while hooker Adam Milner is back in the squad after a knee injury ruled him out of the Catalans game. But there is still no place for full-back Luke Dorn.
