Castleford Tigers vs Wigan Warriors Super League Round 6 preview

Wigan travel to one of the hardest stadiums in the Super League to leave with 2 points, the Jungle to face a resurrected Castleford side.

The Tigers did the triple over Wigan last year, this isn't something that happens so often, the last 5 meetings prior going in the favour of the Warriors. Castleford do have a surprisingly good home record against the Warriors, 4 of the last 5 meetings at the Jungle were Castleford wins. 

Castleford are without new signing Liam Watts due to suspension, Oliver Holmes is also absent after being banned for 1 game on Tuesday by a Judiciary panel, Gadwin Springer replaces him. Wigan are still without Dan Sarginson and Joel Tomkins due to injury. Hamlin and Marshall are replaced by Craig Mullen and Callum Field as the only changes to Wigan's 19 man squad.
Castleford Tigers - Ben Roberts, Greg Minikin, Jake Webster, Michael Shenton, Jamie Ellis, Luke Gale, Junior Moors, Paul McShane, Grant Millington, Mike McMeeken, Adam Milner, Nathan Massey, Jesse Sene-Lefao, Alex Foster, Matt Cook, Gadwin Springer, Jake Trueman, James Greene, James Clare.

Wigan Warriors - John Bateman, Joe Burgess, Tony Clubb, Tom Davies, Morgan Escaré, Liam Farrell, Ben Flower, Callum Field, Oliver Gildart, Willie Isa, Tommy Leuluai, Craig Mullen, Romain Navarrete, Sean O’Loughlin, Sam Powell, Ryan Sutton, Taulima Tautai, Sam Tomkins, George Williams.

I'm backing the Warriors in this fixture, I feel Castleford are still working 2018 out as a whole, who will play where and who the star players will be, for that reason I'm backing Wigan by a margin of 6-12.
