Castleford head coach Ian Millward has today confirmed that first choice half back pairing Rangi Chase and Danny Orr will start against Huddersfield in the pre-season friendly at the PROBIZ Coliseum next Friday (13th Jan).
Reigning Man of Steel Chase was rested for the Boxing Day victory over Bradford Bulls following his exploits for England in the Gillette Four Nations while club captain Orr has recovered from a pre-season back injury. The pair look set to return to action for the first time since last season, as do a number of other first choice players who have recovered from injury in recent weeks.
Looking ahead to the game, Millward said: ““I’ll be fielding my strongest available side, Rangi and Danny will play in the halves and everyone who is fit and available will get plenty of game time. I’m looking to see who deserves to make the 17 for the Wakefield friendly and ultimately the line up for the first Super League game at Salford.”
Millward will confirm his team on Tuesday morning following training.
Kick off for the Giants clash is at 7:30pm. Tickets are priced £13 (adults) and £6 (juniors/concessions).
