Wildcats Announce Squad for Derby Against Castleford.

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats Head Coach John Kear has today announced his squad that will face local rivals Castleford Tigers on Friday evening.

Two first team regulars will be returning to the team after injuries picked up in previous games. Club Captain Glenn Morrison will be back this week to boost the team after a dead leg that he sustained in the Harlequins fixture two weeks ago and Aaron Murphy is named in the line up after recovering from his quad injury.

Julien Rinaldi, Paul Johnson and Ben Jeffries are others included in the squad and new signings Tyrone McCarthy and Liam Higgins have retained their spot in the team for another week running. Kieran Hyde is back in the First Team line up after his impressive performance in the Reserves last week.

Michael Korkidas is ruled out of action for a further week due to his left knee injury but is set to be back in a weeks time. Jeremy Smith has recovered from his hamstring injury and will be returning to the game next week.
