Castleford have scrum-half Luke Gale back in the side after missing the win over Huddersfield with a side strain so Ben Roberts will most likely revert to the bench.

Hull (7) v Catalans Dragons (8)

Hull have lost back-rower Sika Manu with a knee injury but are hoping full-back Jamie Shaul and centre Carlos Tuimavave will be fit to return following their late withdrawal against St Helens. They will also check on the fitness of prop Mickey Paea and stand-off Jake Connor.

Catalans coach Steve McNamara recalls hooker Micky McIlorum while prop Antoni Maria is a direct replacement for Mika Simon, who is suspended, after recovering from a hamstring injury. Ugo Perez and Thibaud Margalet are vying to take over from injured second-rower Ben Garcia.

Last season: No corresponding fixture

Warrington are bolstered by the return of prop forwards Chris Hill and Mike Cooper, half-backs Kevin Brown and Tyrone Roberts and back-rower Ben Murdoch-Masila.

St Helens are still without skipper James Roby but they have forwards Dom Peyroux and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook back from injury. Centre Ryan Morgan is fit again so takes over from Matty Costello and stand-off Theo Fages has recovered from the illness that forced him to miss the win over Hull.
