Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named his 19-man squad for Saturday’s Super 8s clash with Catalans Dragons at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle (kick-off 7.30pm).

Powell has made three changes to the squad who claimed victory over Warrington Wolves in their last outing with Jamie Ellis, Kieran Gill and Calum Turner making way for Luke Gale, Ben Roberts and Adam Milner.

Gale and Roberts have both been missing through injury for lengthy spells and the Tigers head coach is looking forward to finally having some selection headaches.

He said: ”It’s been a tough year in terms of injuries and quite a few of our high quality players have been missing for parts of the season so it’s a great time to have some selection headaches.

“That always drives players’ standards and team performance standards as a result of that. I’ve got some decisions to make and I’ll be pretty happy to be making them.”
