Castleford Tigers makes three changes following first win

Castleford Tigers were winless heading into their round five fixture against Leeds Rhinos but a much improved performance saw them defeat the Rhinos.

It was a significant first win of the season for the Tigers and the first of Andy Last’s tenure as interim coach, something he’s stated he wants to make permanent.

Heading into round six the Tigers are at the Jungle once again but they face the unbeaten Warrington Wolves in arguably their toughest test so far.

Last has made three changes to his squad from last week in an effort to stop the five-win Wire side.

George Griffin, Alex Sutcliffe and Jacob Hookem all enter the fray for Castleford this week.

That sees Mahe Fonua, Sam Hall and George Lawler miss out on the 21-man squad.

The likes of Niall Evalds is still a huge miss through injury but veteran Greg Eden can feature at full-back.

Adam Milner could be set to make his 300th appearance of his career should he get a run out.
