Both sides come into this one following impressive victories in round one. Castleford was far too strong for newly-promoted Toronto whilst Wigan overcame 12-man Warrington in a fiery encounter.

The Warriors have performed superbly against the Tigers in recent fixtures, boasting four wins from five games, though Castleford’s only win came in their only game at the Jungle. The Tigers have won their last four at home against Wigan, which should give the much-depleted Castleford side hope.

Tyla Hepi, Adam Milner, and George Griffin will miss the fixture due to head knocks while Greg Eden is sidelined with a knee injury, and Peter Mata’utia will serve the first of his two-match suspension.

Oliver Holmes, meanwhile, is in contention to feature against the Warriors and he is named in a youthful looking squad for this Friday’s fixture, with the likes of Brad Graham, Robbie Storey, Sam Hall, Brad Martin and 17-year-old England Youth full back Bailey Hodgson all competing to make their first team debuts.

Jake Shorrocks and Mitch Clark come in for Wigan in the place of marquee signing George Burgess and Joe Bullock.
Castleford has home advantage, but the loss of key men against the Wolfpack adding to an already congested injury list should give Wigan the edge.
