Castleford Tigers have recalled winger Jason Qareqare less than a week after loaning him to Whitehaven.

Qareqare, 18, was only announced by the Championship side last Friday. He did not feature in their 64-4 defeat to Leigh Centurions over the weekend, and has now been recalled by his parent club.

The winger has been included in Lee Radford’s side to face Wakefield.

Castleford have only managed to name a 20-man squad for the Super League clash on Friday. 

Cain Robb and Kieran Hudson have also been recalled from Whitehaven to the Tigers and have been included in the squad.
