Lee Radford confirms Castleford Tigers star could be out for the rest of the season in huge blow

Castleford Tigers have been hit with the news that both Jordan Turner and Bureta Faraimo are set to face long spells on the sidelines.

Turner suffered a shoulder injury in last Friday’s Challenge Cup quarter-final defeat at Hull KR, to the same shoulder that he had an operation on in pre-season and that could see him out until the end of the season.

“He’s going to see a second specialist on Friday,” head coach Lee Radford told BBC Radio Leeds.

“It’s not looking good unfortunately.

“It’s going to be a long term one I think – he’s going to need an operation.

“He was in good form and he was last year’s player of the season as well – it would be a massive blow for us moving forward.”

Bureta Faraimo is also set to endure a lengthy spell on the sidelines with the prognosis on a knee injury around six to eight weeks.

Radford named his 21-man squad yesterday for the trip to Wakefield Trinity tomorrow night:

1 Niall Evalds
2 Derrell Olpherts
