This weekend we travel to Castleford in which could be an interesting fixture.

Cas, are in 5th place having won their last 2 games. They also boast the 2nd highest points scored per game.

With this, we know that even going there, our back will be against the wall. That said, the lads have started to get into their stride having recorded consecutive victories in our most recent league games.

Due to illness, Lewis Eastwood drops out of the 1st XV squad. He is replaced by Martyn Booth who as we know, doesn't travel. He is joined in the front row by Nick Jackson and the returning Rich Lister.

For consecutive games, the boiler house remains the same with Alan Justham and Sy 'Big John' Hill adding ballast to the set piece.

Chris Chapman reverts back to blind side this week as Mikey Dolan is welcomed back into the pack after his sabbatical playing in the backline for the last couple of weeks. The pack will be steered by the (almost) ever present Jonny Mackey at 8.

In the backs, Stu Wilson and Ollie Catherall again partner each other in the half back roles.

Rekindling their centering flames are Nick Holdsworth and Lewis Barrett who play together for the first time since a brief spell on the opening day of the season.

The back 3 of Jamie Sykes, Lewis Myers and Harley Stevenson-Cocks will be looking to create havoc in the loose.

The bench sees Charlie Middleton, Tim Baxter, Tony Clitheroe, Adam Bishop come in to strengthen the squad. Also at some point in the afternoon, Harry Beckwith will make his 1st XV debut.

Kick Off is 2:15, I look forward to seeing you there. If not able to travel, the Crusaders are at home against Huddersfield 3s. Good luck to the lads in that game.

Cheers,

Si
