Wildcats head coach Richard Agar welcomes back hard hitting duo Justin Poore and Ali Lauitiiti to his 19-man squad to take on Super League champions Leeds on Friday.

Justin Poore could return against Leeds after missing the trip to Saints.

Wakefield host the Rhinos at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium (kick-off 8pm) looking to gain a first victory since the 28-0 demolition of London last month. The return of the forwards is sure to provide a huge boost after the brave defeat to St. Helens last weekend.

Former Rhino Lauitiiti is set to challenge his old team on home soil for the first time since his arrival to Trinity at the end of the 2011 season while Poore could renew his rivalry with Ryan Bailey after his Boxing Day red card.

1. Richard MATHERS

2. Peter FOX

3. Dean COLLIS

4. Lee SMITH


6. Paul SYKES

8. Justin POORE

9. Paul AITON



14. Kyle WOOD
