Sosaia Feki will have to wait to make his Castleford debut after he tore his calf for the second time.
The 28-year-old joined the Tigers on a three-year deal from NRL side Cronulla Sharks in the off-season but he injured his calf in the club’s pre-season friendly against Toronto.
Feki was set to make his Super League debut at Warrington on Friday before suffering a re-occurrence of the injury in training.
Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “Sosaia tore his calf again on Sunday morning.
“It wasn’t a high intensity session that he was in so there’s a bit of an issue there that we need to get to the bottom of.
“He’ll go for a scan and we’ll know a bit more then but you’re always wary when it’s a re-occurring injury.
“It’s massively disappointing for Sosaia. He was devastated when it happened and we’re disappointed that we can’t get him in the team right now.
“There’s no doubt he’s going to go on and have a fantastic career at this club and we’ve got James Clare and Derrell Olpherts playing outstanding rugby league for us which helps.”
Powell confirmed Liam Watts may only miss one game after discovering that the finger injury he suffered at Hull KR is not as bad as first thought.
