The worrying reason why Jake Mamo won’t play for Castleford Tigers against Catalans Dragons

Castleford Tigers have been cut to ribbons in 2022 with injuries.

The likes of Jake Trueman and Nathan Massey will miss the rest of the season whilst those such as Jordan Turner, Niall Evalds and Danny Richardson have missed a whole host of games.

Add into the mix suspensions to the likes of Liam Watts and George Lawler and picking a consistent team has been made almost impossible for Castleford head coach Lee Radford.

One of those players who will miss out on Friday night’s fixture against Catalans Dragons is centre Jake Mamo, who is still out after suffering from concussion two weeks ago.

“It’s his second this year, but I think any head knock is a concern. Obviously I would like him available,” Radford told BBC Radio Leeds.

He would have been free to play in tomorrow night’s game but will miss out again with the symptoms still troubling him.

And, Radford has also revealed 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 continued to 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 will want to stem the losing run of two games after falling to Wakefield Trinity and St Helens in the past fortnight.
