Injury boost for Castleford

Castleford boss Daryl Powell says Greg Minikin’s shoulder injury is not as serious as first feared and he may return against Huddersfield on 31st March.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a superb start to the new Betfred Super League season, but damaged his shoulder scoring his ninth try of the campaign in the 13-12 defeat at Salford.

“We don’t think it’s too bad – he looked like he’d dislocated his shoulder but he’s had a scan and seen a specialist and things aren’t too bad,” Powell told the Yorkshire Post.

“He’s got a bit of a problem with his ligament but shouldn’t be too long.

We’re really pleased it’s not too serious. He’s a high quality player who is going to be an outstanding player of the future.”

Powell also confirmed that Oli Holmes is back in training after recovering from a knee injury he picked up in pre-season.
