Warrington duo Toby King and Jack Hughes have returned to Daryl Powell’s squad to face Castleford on Thursday night.

Powell faces his former club for the first time since joining Wolves as head coach during the off-season. The game kicks-off Thursday night at 8:00pm at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Centre Toby King missed the opening game with Leeds due to injury. Captain Hughes could also make his first appearance of the season.

Powell has named a 22-man squad, including Oliver Holmes despite his suspension. The back-rower was hit with a one-match penalty notice for his yellow card during Saturday’s win. The club have confirmed that they will be appealing the suspension.
