THE TEAM NEWS

CASTLEFORD TIGERS

  • Castleford Tigers were very underwhelming in 2020 and Daryl Powell will be out to right the wrongs of that campaign in what will be his final year in charge after announcing that he will depart at the end of the season.
  • The Tigers have made the impressive addition of Niall Evalds from Salford Red Devils and his influence at fullback could be key to Powell getting his side playing the brand of rugby that saw them reach the 2017 Grand Final.

21-man squad: Blair, Eden, Evalds, Griffin, Hepi, Holmes, Massey, Mata’utia, McShane, Millington, Milner, O’Brien, Olpherts, O’Neill, Richardson, Sene-Lefao, Shenton, Smith, Trueman, Turner, Watts

Unavailable: Sosaia Feki, Alex Foster, James Clare, Suaia Matagi

Questionable:

WARRINGTON WOLVES

  • Warrington Wolves flattered to deceive in 2020 as their talented squad produced an ultimately disappointing season and they failed to even make the semi-finals of the play-offs as they were knocked out by Hull FC in their first matchup.
  • The Wolves have made the biggest signing in Super League this season thanks to the capture of Queensland and Australia legend Greg Inglis but he will have to wait for his debut as he gets up to speed following his move, although fellow new signings Rob Butler and Rob Mulhern could feature.

21-man squad: Ashton, Austin, Butler, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Mamo, Mulhern, Philbin, Ratchford, Robson, Thewlis, Walker, Widdop, Wrench

Unavailable: Greg Inglis, Sitaleki Akauola

Questionable: Blake Austin

THE PREDICTION

Castleford Tigers and Warrington Wolves will both harbour hopes of competing for silverware in 2021 and they will be eager to get off to a good start here. Both underwhelmed last term and the pressure will be on in these early stages. Daryl Powell and Steve Price have both announced their intention to depart their respective clubs at the end of the season so they will want to bow out on a high but this one could go either way with both capable of coming out on top. The pair are able to produce some impressive moments with the ball and if the weather holds up, this contest should produce at least 40 points.
