Full-back Luke Dorn and second row forward Weller Hauraki return to the Castleford Tigers squad for Thursday’s local derby against Leeds Rhinos at Headingley after missing last week’s game against Huddersfield Giants.

James Clare and Ashley Gibson are the men who miss out this time while Garreth Carvell and Michael Channing are still out as head coach Daryl Powell selects what he considers to be his strongest 19 for a game that could see Castleford go top of the First Utility Super League if they can win.

The Castleford squad is: Dixon, Shenton, Webster, Carney, Dorn, Sneyd, Lynch, Milner, Huby, Millington, Hauraki, Massey, Clark, Holmes, Mariano, Wheeldon, Ellis, Finn, Jewitt.

Former Featherstone back Zak Hardaker returns from suspension for Leeds Rhinos and their full squad is: Hardaker, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Aiton, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Kirke, Achurch, Briscoe, Sutcliffe, Walters.
