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

It’s a massive West Yorkshire derby in the pipeline for Thursday as Wakefield Trinity host Castleford Tigers at Belle Vue.

Under former boss Daryl Powell, Castleford never lost to Wakefield, so it will be interesting to see if that run can continue under Lee Radford.

Both teams come into this one on the back of humbling defeats in the Challenge Cup, with the Tigers going down 34-10 to Hull KR and Trinity 36-6 to Wigan Warriors.
