Castleford Tigers vs Wakefield Trinity: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Tis a famous West Yorkshire derby this week in Super League as Castleford Tigers host rivals Wakefield Trinity.

The two clubs are enjoying very different fortunes of late. The Tigers are in great form and cemented inside the top six at present whilst Wakefield remain at the foot of the table with relegation becoming a real threat.

They were great against St Helens last week and were unlucky to come away from the fixture without a win but now the Tigers stand in their way in a fixture Trinity have a terrible record in. Can they finally get a win over their near neighbours?

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 20:00.

TV coverage starts at 19:30 on Sky Sports Arena.

Predicted Line-ups

Castleford Tigers
Once again, Lee Radford has problems to solve in his side this week. The easiest to solve is the loss of Alex Mellor whose absence will see his former Leeds teammate Alex Sutcliffe move to the backrow and Jake Mamo take over at centre. The more complex one is the loss of Gareth O’Brien. This could see Greg Eden move to fullback or Paul McShane take over in the halves, Adam Milner start at nine and young Cain Robb start on the bench whilst Liam Watts also returns on the bench.

Wakefield Trinity
Wakefield have lost both Kelepi Tanginoa and Jorge Taufua resulting in a bit of a shuffle around this week. So, Lee Kershaw will make his triumphant return on the wing whilst Corey Hall will resume his spot at centre with Lee Gaskell dropping to the bench as Jordy Crowther moves to 13 allowing James Batchelor to take over from Tanginoa at second-row.
