CASTLEFORD prop Craig Huby (pictured) is set to make his long-awaited comeback in Saturday's Carnegie Challenge Cup fourth round tie at Featherstone Rovers.

The 26 year-old (pictured), who is in his tenth season in the Castleford first team and starts his testimonial next month, has been sidelined with a fractured knee cap sustained at St Helens 12 months ago.

Tigers coach Ian Millward said: ""The inclusion of Craig will benefit us. It's like making a mid season signing. He's a very skilful player and definitely has what it takes to play international.

"It's a big boost. He's really impressed us in training and over the last few weeks.

"We've been really careful with him. Our agenda at all times was to not only get him back, but to get him back fit and ready so he's in a position where he is not vulnerable.

"He's skilful, his presence is good and he adds size to the team.

"He'll play on Saturday which will be great for us as a club."

Tickets will remain available for Saturday's game for Castleford supporters from the Tigers club shop in Carlton Lanes and/or by calling 01977-555336 until 1pm tomorrow (Friday).
