    Daryl Powell adamant his Castleford Tigers are ready as their Super League challenge restarts

    Daryl Powell, the Castleford coach, feels his side are ready for the challenge as they relaunch their Betfred Super League campaign on Saturday. The Tigers play their first match since March as they take on Catalans Dragons behind closed doors at Headingley and Powell said: “We are obviously pleased to be back. It has been an incredibly tough period for everybody. “We just want to get going again and give our supporters something to cheer. We finished well before the lockdown happened and we want to start well in this restart. “Last time we played Catalans they completely dominated us and we’ve got to make sure that doesn’t happen again. “Physically you have to be up for the challenge against them and I think we’re ready to do that. “We’ve been off for four and a half months – so who knows until we get out there? – but I believe we are in a good place.” One area where Catalans will have an advantage is in having experienced the new rules that were introduced during the coronavirus-enforced hiatus. Powell has trained his players for a game without scrums and the new ‘six-again’ rule but match conditions cannot be replicated. “The game has changed,” Powell said. “The six again will have a big impact and, as much training as we’ve done, you have to experience it to know what it’s going to be like.” Also raring to go is Warrington co-captain Jack Hughes, who missed the start of the season after undergoing a double hernia operation following Great Britain’s tour of New Zealand and Papua New Guinea last autumn.
