Eden “probably out for the year” says Powell

Daryl Powell has told reporters that top try-scorer Greg Eden will “probably be out for the year” following his shoulder injury in last night’s victory against Salford Red Devils.

However, the Castleford coach insisted his team have to “crack on” without him.

Eden crossed the whitewash twice in the game and was injured in the act of scoring his second as he flew through the air before landing awkwardly.

“I’m really disappointed for Greg Eden,” said Powell.

“He’ll probably be out for the year with that, which is a massive blow. He’s been going awesome for us.

“But Monaghan is a proven winger and scored a couple of tries himself. We’ve got Jy Hitchcox who has done pretty well for us and Greg Minikin of course.

“This happens. Every team has to deal with a little bit of adversity. We’ll just crack on.”
