Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has made three changes to his 19-man squad for the First Utility Super League match at Wigan Warriors on Friday (8pm).

The Tigers travel to the DW Stadium less than a week after the memorable Tetley’s Challenge Cup triumph and will be targeting their fourth consecutive win over the Warriors.

But they will have to do so without three of the stars of their 16-4 cup win with forwards Andy Lynch, Daryl Clark and centre Jake Webster all rested.

Justin Carney returns after suspension and will be vying with James Clare, Kirk Dixon and Ashley Gibson for the outside back slots.

Youngster Ben Reynolds could make his first Super League appearance of the season while prop forward Nathan Massey is back in the squad after an ankle injury kept him out of action for a month.

The full 19-man squad is:

2. Kirk Dixon

3. Michael Shenton

5. Justin Carney

6. Luke Dorn

7. Marc Sneyd

9. Adam Milner

10. Craig Huby

11. Grant Millington

12. Weller Hauraki

13. Nathan Massey

16. Oliver Holmes

18. Frankie Mariano

19. Scott Wheeldon

20. Jamie Ellis

21. Ashley Gibson

24. James Clare

26. Liam Finn

28. Ben Reynolds

32. Lee Jewitt
