Halifax prop Ryan Boyle serves the one-match suspension for his 'chicken-wing' tackle on Hull KR prop Mose Masoe. Young second-rower Will Calcott has also dropped out of the squad with loose forward Jacob Fairbank and winger James Saltonstall coming in.

Widnes Vikings head coach Denis Betts reported a "couple of bumps and bangs" after the defeat at Warrington Wolves but he expects to have everyone that featured last week available. Half-back Tom Gilmore is set to return from injury but prop Alex Gerrard completes his two-match ban.
