Castleford Tigers vs Wakefield Trinity: 21-man squads, injury news, kick-off time & TV details

Castleford Tigers take on Wakefield Trinity in a highly anticipated West Yorkshire derby this Friday night at the Jungle.

Castleford enjoyed an incredible 46-18 thrashing of Hull FC last Friday night but they are now down to the bare bones in terms of manpower.

Meanwhile, Wakefield endured a tough 13-12 defeat to reigning champions St Helens, though they will have taken a lot from that loss.
