Castleford Tigers head to the Warrington Wolves hoping for a much-improved display than the one which saw them beaten 26-16 by the Salford Red Devils at the Jungle last Friday night.
The Tigers scored three tries – same as their opponents – but it was Salford halfback Marc Sneyd who ran the show, registering 14 points and dominating the game throughout.
Meanwhile, Warrington just about scraped a 22-20 win over 12-man Leeds Rhinos with Connor Wrench’s try late on securing the victory.
Warrington Wolves will be without Daryl Clark following his concussion in Wire’s win over Leeds, but Toby King will return. Oliver Holmes has also been banned for a game, but the club are appealing.
