Castleford Tigers v London Broncos Match Preview

Carney

 London travel to Castleford on Sunday still searching for their first league win of the season, while the Tigers hope to keep pace with league leaders St Helens.

 Daryl Powell’s men currently sit in 4th place in the table, just two points behind Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors, and four points behind the Saints. However, the Tigers head coach has opted to rest Andy Lynch and star hooker Daryl Clark for Sunday’s visit of the Broncos, ahead of the Challenge Cup semi-final clash against Widnes.

 Prop forward Grant Millington could miss the rest of the season after suffering an MCL injury in last weeks draw at Hull FC, while Weller Hauraki starts his two-match ban he picked up in the same game.

 Jake Webster, Justin Carney and Craig Huby all come into the squad, as does young second-rower Brad Day, who has impressed for York City Knights on dual-registration this season.

 Joe Grima has made just one change to the Broncos squad that lost 62-10 at home to Hull KR last week, with Nesi Mataitonga returning from a six week injury lay-off to replace James Woodburn-Hall.

 The already relegated Broncos conceded 250 points in four games in July but might fancy their chances the Tigers, who themselves may have one eye on next weeks Challenge Cup semi-final.

Squads:

Castleford Tigers: Dixon, Shenton, Webster, Carney, Dorn, Sneyd, Milner, Huby, Massey, Holmes, Mariano, Wheeldon, Ellis, Gibson, Clare, Finn, Day, Jewitt, Carvell.

London Broncos: Atkins, Cook, Dollapi, Drinkwater, Farrar, Griffin, Keyes, Krasniqi, Lovell, Mataitonga, McMeeken, Minns, Moore, Slyney, Solomona, Thomas, Vea, Wallace, Wicks.
