Castleford Tigers are set to give a debut to second row forward Kevin Larroyer in place of Alex Foster, while stand-off Ben Roberts returns from injury and winger Joel Monaghan is recalled in the absence of Jake Webster, who like Junior Moors is rested.

Widnes Vikings could have Chris Bridge back from injury to help offset the loss of new signing Rangi Chase, who is not allowed to play against his parent club, and second rower Tom Olbison and winger Corey Thompson are both set to return from injury.
