Castleford Tigers’ new head coach Daryl Powell has named his first 19-man squad for Saturday’s match against Catalan Dragons at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Australian forward Grant Millington features in the squad for the first time since suffering an injury in the Good Friday match against Wakefield Wildcats at the end of March.

He replaces Weller Hauraki who is out with shoulder injury while Charlie Martin comes into the squad in place of the on-loan Tyrone McCarthy.

Powell said: “Hauraki is out, but hopefully he will be back either next week or the week after. Jake Webster is out for season having had an operation on his cruciate ligament, but Millington is back.

“The players have been fantastic – they worked pretty hard on Saturday and were in this week and looked good, sharp and fresh, so I think the few days off that they had last week has done a good job for us.”

The full Tigers squad is:

1 Richard Owen

2 Justin Carney

3 Michael Shenton

5 Kirk Dixon

6 Rangi Chase

7 Jamie Ellis

8 Jonathan Walker

9 Daryl Clark

10 Craig Huby

11 Lee Gilmour

13 Grant Millington

15 Adam Milner

16 Nathan Massey

17 Oliver Holmes

18 Jordan Thompson

19 Jordan Tansey

24 Charlie Martin

25 Keith Mason
