The duo, who played in Wigan's opening two rounds, have been left out of Adrian Lam's side to take on the Championship side.

Instead, youngster Sam Halsall starts at left centre - his second senior match - while veteran prop Tony Clubb comes onto the bench for his first game of 2021. York's side includes ex-Super League players Adam Cuthbertson, Kieran Dixon and Danny Washbrook.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm and although the game is not on TV, it is being streamed by the website, The Sportsman. It can also be viewed on The Sportsman's YouTube and Facebook channels.
