The odds and the formbook are against them. Cas are seventh in the Super League table, while Wigan are second, and the Tigers have already lost twice home and away to the Warriors this season.

Head Coach Darryl Powell and prop forward Lee Jewitt, who made his senior debut for Wigan and whose wife hails from the town, have been speaking to Calendar's John Shires.

The 26-year-old has played for a number of Super League clubs, including Wakefield, Huddersfield and Castleford before switching to Rugby Union with Leeds Carnegie in 2012.

He returned to League two years later with Championship club Batley Bulldogs before joining brothers Darrell, now with Featherstone Rovers, and George, a former Hull KR junior, at Salford.

“I want to play in big games in front of big crowds and hopefully push for an international spot and I believe Hull is the best club to help me do that.

“Josh will be a great addition to our squad and I’m really looking forward to him joining the group.

“He’s a player we have had to put a lot of focus on when coming up against Salford over the last couple of seasons because of his physical presence both in defence and attack and his ability with the ball in hand."
