Castleford will be without the suspended Rangi Chase for the visit of Catalan on Sunday but otherwise the Tigers are at full strength.

Prop Keith Mason has recovered from a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the last two matches, while half-back Gareth O'Brien will play after passing a head test.

Head Coach Ian Millward is determined that his players will not be distracted by recent upheaval off the field at the club.

"We're really full of ourselves as a group at the moment, we have a rugby league team playing and working hard for each other," he told the club's official website. "We have a job to do on Sunday and we'll get on and do it.

"We don't have Rangi this week but we have worked hard in the off season on our structures for when Rangi isn't available and we've been boosted by Gareth O'Brien passing his head test.

"He's a talented kid and was unlucky with what happened to him. With him on the field for 80 minutes things could have been different.

"We need to be better with possession than last week and having Gareth fit should help with that. I want to see quicker line speed but above all, I want us to be competitive for 80 minutes.

"It is going to be a tough game on Sunday so we really need that same atmosphere and support that we had at home against Leeds."

Catalan have co-captain Gregory Mounis back from a finger injury that forced him to miss last week's defeat at Warrington, but full-back Brent Webb is suspended, along with prop Julian Bousquet.

Darrell Millward or Thomas Bosc are the other full-back options open to coach Laurent Frayssinous.

Castleford squad: Carney, Shenton, Webster, Dixon, Ellis, Walker, Clark, Huby, Gilmour, Hauraki, Millington, Emmitt, Milner, Massey, Holmes, Thompson, Tansey, Mason, O'Brien

Catalan squad: Blanch, Pryce, Taia, Bosc, Elima, Henderson, Casty, Menzies, Anderson, Mounis, Barthau, Pelissier, Larroyer, Millard, Pala, Simon, Fakir, Baitieri, Duport
