Thursday 1st October, 19:45, Super League Round 14, The Mend-a-Hose Jungle, Castleford, Castleford Tigers versus Hull FC Match Preview

Castleford has won just once in seven games since the resumption of Super League, including a 31-19 loss to Huddersfield last weekend. The Tigers are not alone in that bad league form, however, as Hull have just two wins in five league games too. As a result, these two sides sit next to each other in the table with an identical win points percentage of 0.417 coming from five wins in 12 games.

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell makes six changes from last week’s defeat to Huddersfield with Derrell Olpherts, Danny Richardson, Liam Watts, Oliver Holmes, Jesse Sene-Lefao and Calum Turner all dropping out. Jake Trueman, Adam Milner, Junior Moors, Brad Graham, Brad Martin and Dan Fleming all come in.

These two sides met just three weeks ago when the Airlie Birds ran out 29-16 winners in the Challenge Cup last 16. It’s been fairly even between them though in recent seasons with three wins each from six games.
