Warrington Wolves vs Castleford Tigers: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

In the second half at Headingley, Warrington finally looked like a team where the the weight on them had been lifted and they caused the in form Rhinos some real problems.

Can they do the same against the Tigers who, like Leeds, are chasing play-off rugby at the end of the season. So, unlike Warrington, the pressure is well and truly on them.

They’ll also have the added incentive of coming up against former boss Daryl Powell. Can they secure a place in the play-offs – something Powell couldn’t do last season.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 20:00.

There is no live coverage of the game but BBC will show highlights on the Super League Show.

Predicted Line-ups

Warrington Wolves
Warrington produced a really encouraging second 40 at Headingley last week so Daryl Powell may not make many changes but should add some experience to his side with three big returns. Stefan Ratchford could return to the halves though that would be harsh on Riley Dean whilst skipper Jack Hughes and fellow forward Thomas Mikaele could return to the bench.
