Castleford v Salford: 21-man squads, injury update and TV details

Castleford and Salford have both announced their 21-man squads for Saturday evening’s Challenge Cup quarter-final clash at Emerald Headingley Stadium (KO 5:30pm).

The two sides met in Super League last week, with the Tigers claiming a fairly convincing 28-18 victory to make five wins from six games in all competitions so far in 2021.

In contrast, the Red Devils have struggled somewhat, claiming only two wins in total, one of which was a 68-4 demolition of Widnes in the third round of the Cup.

The game will be available to watch on BBC Two, with coverage starting from 5:10pm.
