Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named his 19- man squad to take on Leeds Rhinos on Saturday night at Magic Weekend.

The match kicks off at 7:30pm at St James’ Park in Newcastle as the two teams bring the curtain down on day one of Magic Weekend with more than 3,200 Tigers fans set to make the journey.

The Cas squad shows just one change to last week’s 19-man line-up with Gadwin Springer making way for Kieran Gill.

Outside back Gill suffered a serious knee injury while scoring a try in his Super League debut with the Tigers last June. A full knee construction followed and the winger faced a 10-month recovery period. Once recovered, Gill has spent a month loan with Oldham RLFC, where he scored two tries in three games and gained vital game time to ensure he is now fully match fit.

Tickets are now limited for Magic Weekend with three stands fully booked. Castleford now have under 50 tickets remaining for the East Stand and these can be purchased from the Tigers Den club shop in Carlton Lanes and from the Castleford Tigers Sports Superstore in Xscape.

Official coach travel is already fully booked for this match.
