Castleford Tigers receive major boost

Castleford Tigers

Castleford Tigers are looking for their third win of the season and their second consecutive win when they travel to Salford on Thursday night.

The Tigers defeated Wakefield Trinity in what had been dubbed a “four-pointer” by interim head coach Andy Last and will now look to kick on.

They’ve shown a marked improvement in recent weeks and were unfortunate to come away from Catalans without any points but they’re set to face expansive Salford on Thursday night.

Last has been boosted by the return of playmaker Gareth Widdop who had been struggling with stomach issues that he picked up during his time in France,

His return is huge for the Tigers and brings leadership that is absent in the shape of Joe Westerman.

Westerman is currently serving a one match ban having been sin binned for tripping last week in their victory over Wakefield.

The return of Widdop is one of four changes alongside Sam Hall, Brad Martin and Adam Milner.

Those who are left out are the aforementioned Westerman as well as Albert Vete, Jason Qareqare and Jacob Hookem.

Hull KR loanee Luis Johnson will play again for the third week in a row.
