THE TEAM NEWS

CASTLEFORD TIGERS

Head Coach: Daryl Powell

Squad: Aston, Blair, Clare, Clarkson, Egodo, Ellis, Holmes, Maher, Massey, Mata’utia, McMeeken, McShane, Millington, Milner, O’Neill, Rankin, Sene-Lefao, Smith, Trueman

Unavailable: Luke Gale, Alex Foster, Michael Shenton, Junior Moors, Liam Watts, Greg Minikin, Greg Eden

  • Castleford threw the win away against Hull KR and now face a big task to get into the play-off places with games running out and the competition for the last few places increasing on the back of last weekend’s results.

  • The Tigers will welcome hooker Paul McShane back this week following his suspension and that will give them a big boost and they also have Jamie Ellis available to make his first appearance of 2019 following a long injury lay-off.

  • Tuoyo Egodo is the third change after he overcame a slight knock but Liam Watts could be out for the season with injuries to an ankle and finger and is joined on the sidelines by Greg Minkin and Greg Eden.

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Adebiyi, Battye, Butler, Cunningham, Dixon, Fleming, Fozard, Hellewell, Ioane, Kear, Krasniqi, Lamb, Lovell, Mason, Pitts, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable: Eloi Pelissier, Morgan Smith, Ryan Morgan, James Meadows, Greg Richards

  • London suffered an awful weekend with several of their rivals picking up wins whilst they were heavily defeated at home to Salford as their bid to avoid relegation suffered a huge blow.

  • New signing Brock Lamb made his debut for the Broncos but will hope for more of an impact here but fellow newbie Guy Armitage will have to wait for his debut as he heads to London Skolars on dual-registration.

  • In the only change to head coach Danny Ward’s 19-man squad from last week, Will Lovell could have a chance to stake his claim for a place in the side for the run-in with Greg Richards the man to make way after suffering an injury.

THE PREDICTION

Castleford's play-off hopes are hanging by a thread after they were defeated in golden point by Hull KR. They now host a London side that are desperate to get back to winning ways following a terrible effort against Salford last week but the Tigers can hit back and win comfortably. London have been poor in recent games and with just one win from their last five and are likely to fall short again here with the lack of quality in their squad beginning to tell when it matters.
