Castleford Tigers v Hull KR: Super League preview
Last Updated: 09/04/15 4:55pm
Lee Jewitt returns to the Castleford squad for the first time since September 2014 as they host in-form Hull KR on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 2HD.
Injury has ruled the front rower out for the past eight months but having finally recovered he is eager to get back on the field with his team-mates.
“It’s been torture watching the boys, and just training constantly,” Jewitt told the Tigers’ official website.
“There is a light at the end of the tunnel for me now, and I just can’t wait to get back out there.”
He returns to a squad that will be buoyed following a 22-14 win at Warrington on Easter Monday, their third win in four games.
Meanwhile, Hull KR boss Chris Chester has made two changes to his squad for the trip to the Mend-a-Hose Jungle.
Kris Welham and Tyrone McCarthy are recalled to the 19 with James Donaldson out with a leg injury and Maurice Blair suspended.
Rovers will be full of confidence having won their last three games, including a 20-16 win over Huddersfield last time out.
