Thursday 22nd October, 17:30, Super League Round 17, Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens, Castleford Tigers versus Hull KR Match Preview
It’s now just one win in nine games for Daryl Powell’s Castleford Tigers, whose meteoric slide to ninth position in the Super League table has been unprecedented. Their 48-6 thrashing by Hull FC last weekend epitomised the downward spiral the club has been on since the season resumed. For Hull KR, however, they finally snapped a five-game losing run with a hard-fought 24-22 victory over Salford.
Gareth O’Brien, Tyla Hepi, Matt Cook and Brad Graham miss out of Daryl Powell’s 21-man squad with Derrell Olpherts, Greg Eden, Daniel Smith and Dan Fleming coming in.
