Here, we pick our starting line-up - and four-man bench - of players who have figured for both clubs, as well as a coach... will Ian Millward take charge of the side?

The ex-Leeds ace played for Castleford in 2017 but was sacked after failing a doping test which wiped out his '18, before joining Wigan
He started his career with the Warriors in 2009 and was sent on loan to the Tigers the following season, and played seven times for the Yorkshire club.
