Millington ready for Super League bow
Australian prop Grant Millington is set to make his Stobart Super League debut for Castleford Tigers against champions Leeds Rhinos on Friday.
The 25-year-old Millington, who joined the Tigers on a two-year deal from Canterbury Bulldogs in November, missed the first four rounds after undergoing shoulder surgery but has been named in acting head coach Stuart Donlan’s 19-man squad.
He could go up against England skipper Jamie Peacock, who will return to the Rhinos line-up after being rested for Sunday’s win at Widnes Vikings.
Bradford-born academy hooker Liam Hood, 20, could make his Super League debut for Leeds after overcoming an ankle injury to be named in coach Brian McDermott’s 19-man squad for the first time this season.
