Prop Richard Moore has been named in the 19-man squad for the first time this season for Sunday’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup tie against Leeds Rhinos (kick-off: 2pm).
Moore has been battling against hamstring and calf injuries in the opening weeks of the First Utility Super League campaign but is fit enough to be in contention for a second Wakefield debut against his former club.
Chris Riley is the man to come out of the squad named for last week’s visit to Hull KR. Riley is not available for Challenge Cup games but Richard Agar revealed in his weekly press conference that he may return to the Wildcats on a week-by-week loan after completing an initial month where he could not be recalled by the Wolves.
Taulima Tautai (hand), Reece Lyne (toe) and Scott Anderson (ribs) have all been declared fit to play after picking up knocks in the defeat against the Robins.
