Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has made three changes to his 19-man squad for Thursday night's game at Huddersfield Giants.

Mike McMeeken returns to the squad after only featuring in the Tigers opening game of the season against Catalans Dragons so far in 2019 while new signing Daniel Smith is included and is in line to potentially make his debut against his former side and Junior Moors also comes back in after recovering from a neck injury.

Nathan Massey drops out after picking up an injury in the Tigers win over Wigan Warriors as well as Alex Foster who has not recovered from a knee injury that kept him out of last Friday's game. Will Maher is the final player to fall out of the 19-man squad.
