Niall Evalds, Jake Trueman and Gareth O'Brien all featured for the Tigers as they booked their place at Wembley with a stunning 35-20 victory over the Wire on Saturday but the trio have not been named in the squad to face the Black and Whites this week.

Head coach Daryl Powell has made a total of five changes to last week's 21-man squad with Daniel Smith and Cheyse Blair - neither of whom played against Warrington - also dropping out in place of Danny Richardson, George Griffin, Lewis Bienek, Lewis Peachey, and Brad Graham.

Griffin is back after a one-game suspension, which ruled him out of Saturday's semi-final.

Castleford Tigers 21-man squad vs Hull FC: Derrell Olpherts, Peter Mata’utia, Michael Shenton, Danny Richardson, Liam Watts, Paul McShane, Oliver Holmes, Adam Milner, Nathan Massey, George Griffin, Alex Foster, Jacques O’Neill, Tyla Hepi, James Clare, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Suaia Matagi, Jordan Turner, Lewis Bienek, Lewis Peachey, Brad Martin.
