Castleford Tigers temporary head coach Danny Orr has named his 19-man squad for Friday evening’s Challenge Cup fourth round tie away at Leeds Rhinos.

Australian winger Justin Carney returns from a two-game suspension while James Clare is included in the initial squad after a try-scoring display in last weekend’s victory at home to Widnes Vikings.

Lee Gilmour also features despite suffering a hamstring strain during training last week that ruled him out of the Vikings match.

Orr said: “We came through the Widnes game okay; we’re actually a touch healthier in terms of numbers this week as we also welcome back Justin Carney from suspension.

“Some of our young players were given an opportunity against Widnes and they performed really well so they will be given another chance to impress against Leeds Rhinos.”

1 Richard Owen

2 Justin Carney

3 Michael Shenton
