SUPER 8S PREVIEW: Castleford v Warrington

Castleford Tigers make one change from the team who won last week’s home game against Hull FC, with Michael Channing replacing Paul McShane.

The Tigers will also be looking for revenge for the 44-6 hiding they received from the Wolves at the Jungle just a couple of weeks ago.

Wire are boosted by the return of talismanic back rower Ben Westwood to the ranks from suspension.

Ben Harrison and Ryan Atkins also return after injury, but prop Anthony England is out with an elbow.

Warrington have endured a tough couple of weeks, losing twice at Headingley. First to Hull KR in the Challenge Cup semi-final, and then being hammered 49-10 by Leeds in their opening Super 8s game.
