Wakefield v Castleford: 21-man squads, injury update and TV details

Wakefield and Castleford have both announced their 21-man squads for Wednesday night’s round 10 West Yorkshire derby at the Mobile Rocket Stadium (KO 7:45pm).

Neither team was affected by last week’s COVID-19 postponements, with Trinity’s three-game winning run ended by a 38-18 loss to Warrington.

The Tigers, meanwhile, were defeated 30-12 by Hull FC but did catch the headlines through 17-year-old debutant Jason Qareqare, who scored a magnificent try after just 45 seconds.

The game will be available to watch live on Sky Sports Arena, with coverage starting from 7:00pm.
