Danny Ward is set to play his first game as a visitor at Headingley Carnegie after being named in Castleford's 20 man squad for Friday's game. The Dewsbury Moor product made 129 appearances for the Rhinos, scoring ten tries - including a memorable score in the Challenge Cup final against Hull - the side against whom he memorably conjured his sole field goal at the Boulevard in 2001. He missed the meeting between the two sides earlier this season but has since returned from injury and is a mainstay of Terry Matterson's side. Castleford have again included assistant coach Brad Davis, who came out of retirement over the Easter weekend for the defeats against Wakefield and Warrington. Castleford 20-man squad: Platt, Pryce, Shenton, Dyer, Blanch, Kain, Henderson, Nutley, Haughey, Roarty, Huby, Whitaker, Viane, Fa'aoso, Manu, Franze, McGoldrick, Ward, Davis. Referee: R Laughton
