There are some huge games tonight as Wakefield Trinity and Castleford Tigers meet in a do or die clash, Wigan Warriors host Hull FC in a key match in the play-off race which is the same for Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils.
It is also true of Sunday’s game as Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves meet at Headingley.
Leeds are trying to keep their play-off hopes alive whilst Warrington are striving to re-ignite their season.
Team news has now been confirmed for the game with the big news being Harry Newman’s potential return for Leeds as well as David Fusitu’a returning after a head knock.

As for Warrington they make no major changes although captain Stefan Ratchford does feature despite leaving the previous match against Catalans due to a HIA, that’s of course because the Challenge Cup allowed for an extra week’s recovery for the centre to make it through the return to play protocols.
