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

Castleford Tigers host Warrington Wolves at the Jungle in what will be Daryl Powell’s first visit back to his old stomping ground.

Powell spent almost nine seasons at the West Yorkshire club, famously taking to the Tigers to two Challenge Cup Finals and one Grand Final – though he lost on all three occasions.

Going into this fixture, Castleford fell to a 34-20 defeat to Leeds Rhinos at the Magic Weekend last weekend, whilst Warrington put on an emphatic display in a big 36-10 win over Catalans Dragons.
