Tigers looking to build momentum with trip to Robins


Castleford Tigers are looking to build on their back to back wins when they travel to newly promoted Hull KR at Craven Park.

The Tigers were soundly beaten at St Helens before labouring to victory over Widnes Vikings and then convincingly beat Hull FC last Saturday.

They make three changes from that game against Rovers’ city rivals Hull FC with Greg Eden, Joe Wardle and Jy Hitchcox dropping out due to injury. Matt Cook, James Clare and Jake Trueman all return to the 19 man squad.

As for the Rovers, they have started with just one win in their first four games, they beat Catalans Dragons in week three and then were soundly beaten by Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils and were narrowly beaten by Leeds Rhinos.

They make two changes to their defeats at the Red Devils with Lee Jewitt and Matty Marsh missing out with knocks. They have been replaced by James Donaldson and Chris Clarkson, who both return after long lay offs.

The match will see the inaugural Roger Millward Trophy be played for. The legendary half back, who played for the two clubs died in 2016.

The match will kick off at 7.45pm and the referee will be Liam Moore.
