Castleford Tigers are staging a match against a touring Australian team on Saturday.

A Tigers under 19s academy select side will take on a New South Wales under 18s representative team at the Wish Communication Stadium with the game kicking off at 2pm.

The touring Australian team will contain players linked with NRL sides Penrith Panthers, Wests Tigers and St George Illawarra, promising a tough test for Castleford’s juniors.

It will be a rare chance to see the stars of tomorrow from down under and while it will be the last time to watch the Tigers’ under 19s group from this season, it will also offer a chance to see some exciting prospects hoping to feature in the academy set up in 2014.

Tickets are priced at £3 for adults and £1.50 for juniors (pay on the gate). There will be a barbecue and refreshments provided by Tigers Together.
