The fixture will be Daryl Powell's first game in charge of Castleford

The match, which will be the first for new Tigers coach Daryl Powell, has been moved from 6pm to 3pm after the Rugby Football League accepted a request from French television.

Castleford say they objected to the late change because of the disruption caused to fans who put their travel arrangements in place weeks ago.

A Castleford spokesman said: "The Tigers would like to make fans aware that the decision has been made by the RFL despite our objection to the change as we believe that the late notice is unfair to our travelling fans."
