FIT-AGAIN FORWARD Larne Patrick is wary of the threat two former team-mates will pose to Castleford Tigers tomorrow night
Patrick played with Leeds Rhinos’ Brett Ferres and Anthony Mullally for Huddersfield Giants and reckons the pair are capable of taking the game to Tigers at Headingley tomorrow evening.
“Brett’s a proven player in what he can do,” Patrick said.
“Anthony Mullally has stepped up his game this year and is doing some real good things.
“He’s a real handful – and he’s a giant – so we’ll be keeping an eye on him.
“He’s a real threat with the ball.”
Patrick played his first game of the season, following two operations on an injured wrist, in last weekend’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup defeat at Hull.
The 28-year-old has retained his place in the initial squad for tomorrow and his return to fitness is a boost for Tigers following long-term injuries to Matt Cook and Junior Moors.
“I feel like rest of my body has benefited massively from this break,” he said. “I do feel mentally fresher too, now I know I’m fit. Hopefully I can give us that extra boost when the time is needed
“Obviously players start to creak around about now as it’s a long, long season and me having only played one game, hopefully it will boost us.”
