Team news ahead of Saturday's Challenge Cup final between Castleford and Leeds.

Craig Huby (r): Fitness fight for Challenge Cup final

Castleford coach Daryl Powell has, as expected, named injury doubt Craig Huby in his initial 19-man squad for Saturday's Tetley's Challenge Cup final against Leeds.

The prop forward dislocated an elbow in the Tigers' 28-6 semi-final win over Widnes 11 days ago and is being given until the last minute to prove his fitness.

Winger Justin Carney and second rower Weller Hauraki are both in the squad after missing that game through suspension, with James Clare making way for Carney, while hooker Adam Milner is the other player called up.

Leeds coach Brian McDermott, who named his team at the start of the week, has excluded Stevie Ward and Mitch Achurch from his initial 19-man squad.
