Castleford Tigers are set to hand a Super League debut to Dan Fleming in tomorrow’s (Sunday) game against bottom of the table London Broncos at Wish Communications Stadium (3.30pm).

The 20-year-old Wales international (pictured) was given a squad number for this season but started the campaign on loan at Championship club Batley Bulldogs.

Tigers coach Ian Millward has also included winger Richard Owen and prop Jonathan Walker in his 19-man squash. They both played for Keighley Cougars at Featherstone Rovers last week under dual registration.

Winger Justin Carney and forward Weller Hauraki are unavailable through suspension but Millward expects Jake Webster and Lee Gilmour to feature after injuries. They will have fitness tests today after missing last Friday’s game at Hull FC.

London Broncos coach Tony Rea makes just one change to his squad for the trip north with Australian winger Michael Robertson replacing Scott Wheeldon.

London utility back Luke Dorn - a former Castleford player - will be making his 150th appearance for the club.

Both sides enter the seventh round of action looking for just their second win with the pair sitting in the bottom three.

Castleford will be looking to rediscover their scoring touch after losing 52-0 to Hull last time out.

Castleford squad: Owen, Shenton, Webster, Dixon, Chase, Ellis, Walker, Clark, Huby, Gilmour, Millington, Emmitt, Milner, Massey, Holmes, Thompson, Tansey, Fleming, Mason.

London squad: Bailey, Bryant, Channing, Clubb, Cook, Colbon, Dixon, Dorn, Fisher, Gower, Kaufusi, Krasniqi, Lee, Lovell, Randall, Robertson, Rodney, Sarginson, Witt.
