WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats head coach Richard Agar has named his 19-man squad charged with bagging the bragging rights against derby foes Castleford Tigers this Friday (kick-off 7.30pm).

For Castleford, head coach Ian Millward has made two changes to his 19-man squad with Adam Milner and Jordan Thompson returning in place of James Grehan and Ryan Hudson.
