Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has named a strong 21-man squad to face Widnes Vikings in a pre-season friendly at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Sunday (kick-off 3pm).

Most of the senior players in the first team squad will get a run out and the match will see a welcome return to action for club captain Michael Shenton.

Shenton said: “It’s great to be back involved with the team, we’ve improved with each game so far so we’ll be looking for another improvement against Widnes, who themselves have recruited very well this season.

“This game should be a good marker as to where we are at as a team.”
