Bradford Bulls give debuts to close-season signings Adam Henry, Luke George and Lee Gaskell and on-loan recruit Danny Bridge goes straight into coach Francis Cummins' 19-man squad after joining this week from Warrington Wolves. Second rower Dale Ferguson must wait to make his bow after failing to shake off a back injury while Jarrod Sammut and Matty Blythe are also sidelined. Full-back Brett Kearney is set to play after recovering from shoulder surgery, though.
Castleford Tigers are set to give debuts to Marc Sneyd, Frankie Mariano, Scott Wheeldon and Liam Finn while Luke Dorn and Andy Lynch will start their second spells with the club. However, the Tigers start the season without injury victims Ryan Boyle, Jake Webster, Lee Gilmour, James Clare and Nathan Massey.
