Castleford Tigers will have a player making his debut against Hull KR on Friday after ruling out England forward Adam Milner.

Milner damaged an ankle in the Tigers’ 40-6 win over London Broncos last Saturday and, although the injury is not as severe as initially feared, he will miss the visit of the Robins.

With Mike McMeeken, Oliver Holmes, Alex Foster, Mitch Clark, Jamie Ellis and Ben Roberts also sidelined, along with long-term injury victim Luke Gale, coach Daryl Powell has called up youngster Lewis Peachey alongside Cory Aston and Jacques O’Neill, who were travelling reserves at the weekend.

Powell said: “It’s positive news for Adam, not for this week but on the whole. He’s had a fair bit of treatment but there is no break. 

“He’s in a fair bit of pain but he will probably be available next week.

“There will be another opportunity this week for someone to make a debut.

“We have nobody else to come in from our senior group of players so we will give an opportunity to a young man who deserves it.”
