aside Super 8s: Castleford Tigers 15:30 Widnes Vikings Preview

Daryl Powell makes just one change to his 19 man squad as Castleford look to end the season with a win.

Cas Tigers 46-22 Wakefield (2)
Luke Dorn will captain the team in his last appearance for the club. 

Rangi Chase has been recalled as Larne Patrick misses out through an ankle injury. Luke Dorn, who plays his last game for the club, has been named the captain by head coach Daryl Powell.

Dorn has been a great servant to the club and is sure to receive a rapturous reception when he walks out onto the field for the very last time.

Castleford have the chance to finish fifth with a win over Widnes. They are currently one point behind the Catalans Dragons who lost to Wigan 48-24 last Friday.

Denis Betts has made four changes to his side as Ted Chapelhow, Tom Gilmore, Ryan Ince and Jordan Johnstone all come into the team. Kevin Brown, Greg Burke, Jack Buchanan and Chris Houston are left out as Widnes look to spoil Dorn’s farewell party.
