Castleford Tigers vs Catalans Dragons: 21-man squads, injury news, kick-off time & TV details

Castleford Tigers will take on Catalans Dragons at the Jungle on Friday night.

Castleford have been in poor form as of late with two losses in a row against Wakefield Trinity and St Helens which have allowed the chasing pack for the play-offs close in.

Catalans, meanwhile, scraped through against Wakefield Trinity last weekend after having 13 men out in what head coach Steve McNamara hailed as ‘one of the best wins in the history of Catalans’.
