Lee Radford fears not being able to raise a Castleford Tigers team against Catalans Dragons following training incident

Injuries have been a horrendous part of the 2022 Super League season so far.

Lengthy spells on the sidelines are becoming more common, with the likes of Castleford Tigers’ Jake Trueman, St Helens’ Lewis Dodd and Hull FC’s Carlos Tuimavave just some of those out for the season.

But, for Castleford Tigers, those injuries have been devastating with head coach Lee Radford revealing that a number of incidents had taken place on the captain’s run this morning, making his team selection almost impossible for tomorrow’s fixture against Catalans Dragons.

“It involved four players, just not one incident,” Radford told BBC Radio Leeds.

“I’ve named the team three times and I’ll have to name it again tomorrow.

“There’s been some curveballs thrown at us in the last ten minutes, but there is this cluster of clubs that are all vying for the six are in a very similar position with troops and training done at this time of year.

“It’s going to be a war of attrition for me.

“It’s been eventful, but we’ll see tomorrow. I don’t want to give them (Catalans Dragons) any heads up of what our squad is going to be.”

Castleford go into tomorrow’s squad with the likes of Jake Mamo, Nathan Massey and Niall Evalds still on the sidelines so with the Tigers trying to keep their fifth position in the Super League table, it will pose some problems.
