Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos injury news and potential return dates as 11 miss Super League derby

At least 11 players have been ruled out of Thursday’s derby between Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos.

Despite the potential return of first-choice players Sam Wood (toe), Danny Richardson (concussion), Elie El-Zakhem (knee), George Lawler (groin) and Daniel Hindmarsh-Takyi (knee), Tigers are the worst hit with eight confirmed as missing the Betfred Super League round six showdown.

Leeds have three players on the long-term casualty list and another, centre Paul Momirovski, is in doubt because of an ankle problem. Here’s which players, on both sides, are unavailable and when they could be back on the field.
