CASTLEFORD Tigers could be without prolific winger Justin Carney for their Challenge Cup semi-final against Widnes Vikings on Sunday.

The Australian, 26, will face a disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday evening after being charged with making a Grade B dangerous throw on London Broncos’ Thomas Minns during Castleford’s 64-18 win yesterday.

If found guilty, Carney faces up to a two game ban, potentially ruling him out of the game at Leigh Sports Village.

Castleford - already without injured key forward Grant Millington - are also sweating over the availability of back-row Weller Hauraki, who was handed a two-match suspension last week.

His appeal, over the charge for recklessly striking with the knees, will also be heard tomorrow night.

Featherstone's Michael Channing and Jamie Thackray double up on Castleford's Jy Hitchcox during the Boxing Day game between the sides in 2015.
