Thursday night’s action concludes with Salford taking on Castleford as both teams look to bounce back from defeats in the previous round. Cas remain winless since the restart.
Ian Watson will be buoyed by the return of his captain Lee Mossop and key man Krisnan Inu, but will be without joint-leading try scorer Ken Sio for the trip to Yorkshire.
Daryl Powell is also able to recall some star names to his squad with Peter Mata’utia and Greg Eden returning in place of James Clare and Jake Trueman.
Both teams have key players returning which both teams will hope can reignite their respective seasons. Salford were hammered by Leeds at the weekend, whilst Cas allowed the game to drift away from them against Wigan. With better game management, the Tigers should just have the edge to snap their losing run.
