Magic Weekend injury blow for Castleford

Ben Roberts injury

Castleford will be without the injured Ben Roberts for their Magic Weekend showdown with Leeds on Sunday.

It means that Tom Holmes is likely to play in the halves with Luke Gale after Rangi Chase joined Widnes on loan earlier this week.

Zak Hardaker faces a late fitness test against his parent club as the Tigers look to continue their impressive recent record against the Rhinos.

Brian McDermott has been handed a boost with Brett Delaney and Kallum Watkins returning, but Keith Galloway (knee) and Mitch Garbutt (concussion) will both be absent.
