Posted: Wednesday 30th August 2017 - 12:13 PM
Daryl Powell has named his 19 man squad to take on Huddersfield Giants on Friday night.
The match takes place at the John Smith's Stadium with an 8:00pm kick off.
With the League Leaders Shield now confirmed Powell rings the changes to give his players the opportunity to fight for their place in Super League Semi Final on 28 September. Andy Lynch, Mike McMeeken and Grant Millington will take a rest while Larne Patrick, Gadwin Springer and Kevin Larroyer step back into the 19 man squad.
Speaking about his selection today, Powell said: "Now the League Leaders Shield is secured we won't rest on our laurels, we won't sit back and allow out form to dip, we want to keep going well as we head towards our Semi Final. There will be a few players who haven't played as much recently who'll get an opportunity to put their names forward to be in the team when it really matters at the end of the season. We just want to keep our confident groove going."
