Warrington v Castleford: 21-man squads and injury update

Warrington and Castleford have both announced their 21-man squads for Saturday afternoon’s round seven fixture at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (KO 3:00pm).

The Wolves will be hoping to impress their fans significantly more than they did on Monday, when they marked the return of supporters to their home ground with a 26-20 loss to Huddersfield.

The Tigers also suffered defeat as spectators returned to The Jungle, conceding a late Jordan Abdull try to lose 26-22 to Hull KR.

Warrington Wolves

Greg Inglis is ruled out with a hamstring problem, with captain Jack Hughes returning from suspension in his place.
