Here are the squads for the first two matches of this weekend’s Betfred Challenge Cup games.
The weekend begins with Hull KR hosting Castleford Tigers in the first of four all-Super League ties.
The Robins have suffered injury blows to Korbin Sims (concussion), Elliot Minchella (ACL) and Matty Storton (head), with all three players left out, to be replaced by Will Dagger and Jimmy Keinhorst, with coach Tony Smith only having named 20 players.
The Tigers welcome back halfback Gareth O’Brien into their squad, with Lewis Peachey making way.
York City Knights will be missing Danny Kirmond, Chris Clarkson, Jack Teanby and Jordan Baldwinson, as well as stand-off Riley Dean, who is recalled by his parent club Warrington Wolves.
York coach James Ford brings back Marcus Stock and Perry Whiteley, while also adding three youngsters in A J Towse, Myles Harrison and Toby Warren.
The Wigan 21-man squad is unchanged from the squad that coach Adrian Lam selected for their Super League Round 2 encounter against Wakefield Trinity.
