COUGARS coach Craig Lingard has been forced to make changes to his squad to face Whitehaven on Sunday.

Brendon Rawlins (concussion) and Will Milner (toe) sustained injuries playing for the first team and reserves respectively last weekend. They join Scott Law (groin), Vinny Finigan (ankle) and Ritchie Hawkyard (facial) in the treatment room.

Sean Kelly returns to the 19-man squad following the completion of his four-match suspension for his dismissal against Barrow Raiders last month, while Liam Darville is back in contention after recent impressive performances for the reserves.

Four players charged by the RFL disciplinary panel following the York City Knights game – Josh Tonks, James Feather, Brad Nicholson and Hamish Barnes – are available as their hearings do not take place until Tuesday.

Cougars squad: Aaronson, Gabriel, Dixon, Beharrell, Feather, Lynam, Emmett, Brook, Cherryholme, Conroy, Tonks, Bailey, Whittel, Darville, Sagar, Kelly, Nicholson, Ryder, Barnes.
