Joe Wardle to make Castleford bow while Mark Minichiello returns for Hull FC

Joe Wardle is set to make his Castleford debut on Saturday while Mark Minichiello will return for Hull FC.

Daryl Powell has made one change to his Castleford side that narrowly beat Widnes Vikings last time out, with Wardle coming into the side and replacing Matt Cook.

Carlos Tuimavave and Chris Green look set to play their first Super League game of 2018 after returning from injury in their exhibition match against St George Illawarra Dragons last weekend.

Italy star Minichiello will also return to action after recovering from injury.

However, Hull are still without starters Houghton and Taylor.

The game takes place at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Saturday, 3:15pm kick-off.
