Toby King and Jack Hughes return for missing Warrington & Richardson

Warrington duo Toby King and Jack Hughes are back in Daryl Powell’s squad to take on Castleford on Thursday night.

Powell faces his former club for the first time since joining Wolves as head coach in the offseason. The game kicks off Thursday night at 8:00 p.m. at Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Center Toby King missed the opener with Leeds through injury. Captain Hughes could also make his first appearance of the season.

Powell named a 22-man squad, including Oliver Holmes despite his suspension. The back rower was hit with a one-game penalty notice for his yellow card in Saturday’s win. The club have confirmed they will appeal the suspension.
