SHEFFIELD Tigers have booked former favourite George Stancl for their Premier Trophy trip to Workington on Saturday (7pm).

Stancl started his career with the Owlerton side in 1994 but now rides for Glasgow and he will make a guest appearance as cover for injured skipper Andre Compton.

Tigers are also expected to hold crisis talks behind closed doors ahead of the meeting after their 75-15 humiliation at King's Lynn in mid-week.

Club bosses have already issued a full apology to those supporters who made the journey to Norfolk and suffered one of the worst results in the club's history.

Said club owner Neil Machin: "We're pleased to have George in our team, he likes the Workington track and he will do his very best for us, there is no doubt about that.

"It's never easy picking guests, that's for sure, but I'm sure we have made the right choice in George."
