  2. Today's results

    So, how have today's results affected the Super League table?

    Well, Leeds are two points clear at the top after their win at Castleford, helped by second-placed St Helens losing at Wigan.

    The Warriors are third for now, although Huddersfield will move ahead of them again if they beat Salford in the day's late kick-off. A Salford win would lift them from ninth position into the top four.

    FT: Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    St Helens coach Keiron Cunningham told Sky Sports: "I'm so proud of my players, they're so resilient. We've lost two more players today and you've got to swap all your team round. Some of those forwards have played such big minutes and I'm proud of them. We didn't attack that great, but we didn't have any half-backs. All I wanted today was a performance and that's what I got from my team - true grit and determination."

    FT: Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Wigan celebrate

    Wigan head coach Shaun Wane told Sky Sports: "It's a good feeling. That was win at all costs. I've got a lot of respect for Keiron Cunningham and his team and that's what makes this victory a bit more special. They're a class team but I was impressed with my team. We showed a lot of determination in defence. That was the real Wigan."

  5. Post update

    FT: Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    St Helens forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook told Sky Sports: "We're bitterly disappointed. We played as a unit - we've lost some key players. We can only learn. We lost last week [at Hull KR] but we came back and put in a good performance this and obviously it wasn't good enough, but I know that we'll get better, get players back and push for honours again."

    "Wigan are back in the race, it was what we expected. They're a champion side, with a great coach. We expected they would come good at some stage, they're good defensively and they got attack going today as well."

    FT: Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Wigan half-back George Williams told Sky Sports: "That means everything. What a win that was. It was really tough but the middles dug deep. St Helens gave us a tough match. We targeted these Easter games and I'm really buzzing. I'm from Wigan and I love this."

  8. Post update

    FT: Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    It's all over, and in front of 24,057 supporters, Wigan and St Helens have treated us to a superb contest.

    It's Wigan who come out on top by eight points, but all 34 players on show have given us a special, special game.

    "It has been a brave effort by both teams and it was a tremendous tackle by the full-back Ryan Hampshire, Adam Swift tried to put the burners on but he matched him for pace."

  10. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Ryan Hampshire - take a bow. Once your Wigan team-mates have stopped hugging you, that is. Adam Swift looks, for all money, to be streaking clear down Saints' left but Hampshire grabs hold of Swift's feet and drags him into touch.

  11. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    And the chance disappears as Tommy Makinson chases a kick through and catches Ryan Hampshire a little high. Penalty to Wigan, who should see this out now.

  12. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Inside the last five minutes, and time is slipping away for St Helens, but wait - Joe Burgess spills the ball in a dangerous area and Saints have a scrum 40 metres out.

    A must-score for Saints, this, really.

  13. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Wigan are on the charge again but Lee Mossop is prevented from touching the ball down by the referee's whistle, as Phil Bentham signals a forward pass.

  14. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Wigan's Joe Burgess has scored in his last four derby appearances against St Helens. His Grand Final try last October counted for nothing. Today, he's probably confirmed his side's victory.

  15. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It was very skilful from Joe Burgess and a very skilful kick from George Williams, At eight points it's a massive mountain to climb for Saints. I can't see Saints scoring here, even if they do get the ball they haven't looked like scoring."

  16. TRY

    Wigan Warriors 12-4 St Helens (Burgess, con Hampshire)

    Warriors prop Lee Mossop grounds the ball - inches short. Three tackles left for Wigan, it's swept out to George Williams, he kicks through to Joe Burgess and it's a try!

    Superb finish from the young winger, who just about keeps his feet in the field of play as he grounds the ball.

    Ryan Hampshire kicks from the touchline, and that could be the game.

  17. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Saying that, the players are exhausted. They've given everything. It's going to take something special, or a mistake, to settle this one.

    Maybe that was the error, as Greg Richards runs the ball on the final tackle and runs into a cluster of Wigan defenders 30 metres from his own line.

    Big chance.

    "That was the big chance for Saints [through Dawson] they threw everything at them, they never looked like getting through and it was great defence. At the moment it seems like a shut out defensively."

  19. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    After last season's Grand Final between these teams, rugby league found itself in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Well this match, the first Wigan-Saints derby since that October encounter at Old Trafford, will hopefully put it in the news for the right reasons.

    What a match. What a way to promote Super League.

    All we need now is a grandstand finish.

    A little dart from Tommy Makinson but Wigan's Dan Sarginson holds him up. Then Ryan Hampshire keeps out Luke Thompson on the last tackle. Superb defence.

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "We may not see another try in this game but if we do it might come from a kick. Saints maybe need to look that way. If they put up a kick, they got some players who can catch a ball and Tommy Makinson in particular."

  23. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    A knock on at the play-the-ball from Wigan's Anthony Gelling and St Helens have a scrum just inside the Warriors half. Another chance to attack, can they find a breakthrough? Another knock on from Joel Tomkins, another Saints scrum.

  24. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Matty Smith's high bomb is beautifully claimed under pressure by St Helens winger Adam Swift. Wonderful stuff, and another example of how well both teams have defended so far.

  25. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Remember, Leeds' victory at Castleford earlier means they're two points clear of St Helens at the top of the table. Wigan would go third, for a short while at least, if they can hold on.

    Already, even at this early stage of the season, the margins are so fine.

    Just 20 minutes left.

  27. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Sensible play from St Helens hooker James Roby, who kicks the ball to the touchline and gains some valuable ground for the visitors. The travelling supporters find their voice, and the Wigan fans respond.

  28. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Both sets of players look out on their feet at times, and we've still got 25 minutes left. May be an error, one way or the other, that decides this.

  29. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    A knock on from St Helens' Jordan Turner 20 metres out. Missed opportunity for Saints, who have trailed since the opening minute.

  30. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Alex Walmsley

    That stat was from before today's game. You can add a lot, lot more to that figure of 1,107 metres made by Alex Walmsley this season.

  31. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Warriors forward Larne Patrick spills the ball, Alex Walmsley picks up the loose ball for Saints just inside Wigan territory and makes some useful metres for the visitors. Walmsley surely an England international in the making. Even Jamie Peacock thinks so, and I wouldn't ever argue with him.

  32. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    St Helens called upon defensively to deny Dom Manfredi and then Anthony Gelling from close range. Then Saints' Tommy Makinson almost fumbles under his own posts but clutches the ball at the second attempt and brings it away from danger.

  33. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "What a warrior Paul Wellens is. He's been out there for three minutes when he can barely walk and now he's been replaced. I tip my hat to him."

  34. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    The penalty comes to nothing, and Paul Wellens hobbles off. Not sure what the issue is, or indeed how he suffered the injury. Tommy Makinson drops in to the full-back berth.

  35. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    The first action of the second half is a high tackle by St Helens forward Greg Richards. Wigan penalty on halfway, and Saints full-back Paul Wellens struggling with an injury, it seems.

  36. Under way again

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    I've consumed a few sweets and reloaded my mug with coffee. Well, I've been brought a mug of coffee by a colleague. So I'm ready to go for this second half, hopefully the players can repeat their efforts of the first. St Helens kick us off.

    Huddersfield Giants v Salford Red Devils (18:00 BST)

    After a shocking start to the season, Huddersfield Giants have found some real form in recent weeks. Similarly Salford, who have recovered from a slow opening to the campaign and are finally beginning to show signs of a side that can challenge for a top-eight place in 2015.

  39. Rhinos blunt Tigers

    FT: Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Leeds celebrate their second try of the afternoon at The Jungle, scored by winger Ryan Hall

    Leeds Rhinos overcame West Yorkshire rivals Castleford Tigers in Good Friday's lunchtime kick-off, with a 26-12 win at The Jungle.

    It was a result that put Brian McDermott's side two points above St Helens before kick-off at the DW Stadium, and you can read the BBC Sport report here.

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It could have been easily 18-0 or 24-0 but St Helens did well to come back into the game.

    "It's got a real play-off feel to this one, if St Helens can clean up their kicking game they could be in with a shout.

    "I'm sure this will be a thriller right to the end, I'm still going for Wigan but St Helens do have a good chance."

  42. Post update

    HT: Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Dom Manfredi

    What a half of rugby league. Dom Manfredi's first-minute try gave the Warriors a perfect start. Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook replied for Saints.

    The match of the season so far.

    Bring on the second half!

  43. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Greg Richards loses the ball on halfway. Chance for Wigan to have one last shot at extending their lead before the interval.

  44. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    St Helens have had the best of the last 10 minutes. They approach the Wigan line again but Ryan Hampshire gathers well from a grubber kick. Then Jordan Turner gives away a cheap penalty at the play-the-ball and the pressure is eased.

  45. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    DW Stadium, Wigan

    This was the view from the commentary box before kick-off at the DW Stadium and, so far, the crowd have not been disappointed. What a first half this has been.

  46. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    What defence from Liam Farrell! With a couple of tackles left, the Wigan man bursts out of the line to close down Lance Hohaia 10 metres out and the Saints half-back knocks on.

  47. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Oooh, now here's a chance for St Helens. Wigan full-back Ryan Hampshire slips into touch as he attempts to gather a Saints kick forward and the visitors have a scrum a few metres from the Warriors line.

    Kevin Brown

    "As bad as they have been with the kicking game, I think Saints will be the happier team. As the game goes on more and more you fancy St Helens."

  49. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    The rain is coming down quite heavily now in Wigan and the pitch is cutting up a bit as a result.

  50. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    No real chances for tries in the past few minutes since Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook barged his way over for St Helens. "Five drives and a kick" seems the order of the day for now, plus trying to avoid giving away penalties at all costs.

  52. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    An excellent kick from Wigan's Matty Smith gets Tommy Makinson facing his own line, but the Saints winger wriggles his way free and forces a penalty as Wigan are caught offside.

  53. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Mose Masoe is penalised for a poor tackle and Wigan attack the Saints line again. The Warriors to within a couple of metres. Can they force their way over? They work it out wide to the right, but what a defensive effort from St Helens. Anthony Gelling is barged out of play by three Saints tacklers and the visitors have possession back.

  54. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    We're 20 minutes in and Wigan ahead by two points. Dom Manfredi's first-minute try seems an age ago! Excellent, pure rugby league thus far.

    "That is one thing Saints can use as a weapon in this game. Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook is fast for a big bloke."

  56. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens

    Error from Kyle Amor as the bearded St Helens prop loses the ball in a tackle with Larne Patrick. Good field position for Wigan - a scrum 30 metres out.

  57. TRY

    Wigan Warriors 6-4 St Helens (McCarthy-Scarsbrook)

    Has Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook got this down from close range for a St Helens reply? Over to the video referee... it's given! Saints right back in this. But Tommy Makinson makes a mess of a fairly routine kick at goal and Wigan still lead by two points.

  58. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    A stoppage in play here for an injury. St Helens forward Joe Greenwood is brought down by a combination of Joel Tomkins and Ryan Hampshire and his leg buckled underneath him as he fell to the floor a few yards from the try line. He's up on his feet again but walking very gingerly to the touchline, helped by two medics.

  59. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Saints get a repeat set as Wigan full-back Ryan Hampshire kicks the ball dead. Goal-line drop-out coming up for the Warriors. Understandably taking their time about it after a breathless opening spell.

  60. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Some huge hits here. If they keep this up for 80 minutes, this one will be worth sticking with. A high shot on Luke Thompson by Michael McIlorum and Saints have a penalty on halfway.

  61. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "There are a couple of big forwards coming off and there are a couple of tired ones still on. It's opening up and great to see."

  62. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Oh dear, St Helens! Massive opportunity missed by the champions. Alex Walmsley's offload in his own half, after a huge hit on him by Michael McIlorum, sets Adam Swift away and he's tackled. The visitors spread it to the right wing and have numbers, but Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook's offload lands in open space.

  63. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Another penalty against St Helens - that's three they've given away in the opening nine minutes. Matty Dawson catches Dan Sarginson high but he escapes punishment. George Williams puts a grubber kick through and Adam Swift safely gathers. Wigan on the front foot here.

  64. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    Could be a tough call on Saints as Tommy Makinson is adjudged to have palmed a high kick forward and Lance Hohaia is caught offside. However, it looked like a Wigan hand that touched it down. Anyway, penalty to Wigan, they spread it wide and the Warriors are bundled into touch.

  65. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    First little skirmish of the match as St Helens' Joe Greenwood tackles Joe Burgess high and Kyle Amor squares up to the Wigan youngster. Nothing in that - let's get on with it, chaps.

  66. Post update

    Wigan Warriors 6-0 St Helens

    I was about to mention that St Helens are without several half-back options today, including Travis Burns, who suffered a horrible facial injury at Hull KR last week. Jordan Turner, usually a centre, is in there today alongside Lance Hohaia and his first attempt at a clearing kick results in a Wigan try.

  67. Post update

    Kevin Brown

    Widnes Vikings captain on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "We said the kicking game was going to be important. Jordan Turner looked nervous, and it took a long time to get the kick away and Lee Mossop closed him down well."

  72. Pre-match thoughts

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Wigan Warriors head coach Shaun Wane told BBC Radio Manchester:

    "It means a lot to me and my staff, just as it does to the St Helens staff - it means a lot to everybody.

    "At the moment St Helens have got the upper hand having won the trophy last year. They're the team to beat, they're doing a lot better than us and it is a huge challenge.

    "What I do have here is players with a lot of heart and desire to win this game."

    St Helens assistant coach Sean Long told BBC Radio Merseyside:

    "It's always a big game, the local derby against Wigan, and we've had some good games there in the past.

    "It's going to be another tough one as they've had a good win against Wakefield and the confidence is back, I think.

    "I get stick wherever I go, especially off the Wiganers - it's all friendly banter but I'm expecting a tough time."

  73. Differing fortunes - Saints on song

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Joe Greenwood

    In contrast, St Helens have started the defence of their title in style.

    They may have been thrashed by South Sydney Rabbitohs in the World Club Challenge, but under new head coach Keiron Cunningham, they began the domestic campaign with six successive wins.

    A narrow defeat at Hull KR last time out ended their 100% start, but they started the eighth round of fixtures level on points with Leeds Rhinos at the top.

  74. Differing fortunes - Wigan's wobbles

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Joe Burgess fails to stop a Leeds try

    It's been a tricky start to 2015 for Wigan Warriors.

    Shaun Wane's side were held to a draw by 12-man Widnes Vikings in their opening game of the season and have since lost at Hull KR, Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos.

    At home, though, they have been faultless. Three Super League games at the DW Stadium, three wins. Can they continue that record today?

  75. 'The biggest derby in rugby league'

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Jon Wilkin

    St Helens captain Jon Wilkin does not feature for his side today, but he has described Wigan v Saints as the "biggest derby" in rugby league.

    "It's the aggression and passion the fans bring to the game and the players show on the field," Wilkin told BBC Radio Merseyside.

    "It is a special day for anyone who is lucky enough to put on the red V, it is one that we're very fired up for and something we've been thinking about for a few weeks now."

  76. Post update

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Thanks Matt. Really looking forward to this one. Two of the biggest clubs in English rugby league going head-to-head. Plenty of previous between them, too.

    Kick-off around 10 minutes away.

  77. Can Saints reel in the Rhinos?

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    St Helens now trail Leeds at the top of Super League by two points after the win against Castleford.

    Saints, of course, can haul the Rhinos back in with victory against Wigan, a game in which Phil Cartwright will bring you all the details.

  78. Post update

    Wigan Warriors v St Helens (15:00 BST)

    Ben Flower

    Ben Flower's two punches on Lance Hohaia resulted in an early red card for the Wigan prop and a six-month suspension - the longest ban in Super League history.

    Head coach Shaun Wane says we can expect Flower to return to action against Warrington on 16 April.

    Of course, the last time these two rivals met was in the Grand Final last October.

    FT: Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Castleford head coach Daryl Powell told Sky Sports: "Leeds were too good for us, we didn't perform how we wanted to and Leeds matched us all over the field.

    "We had a few opportunities after half-time when it was a bit tit for tat but overall we're disappointed.

    "We couldn't grab our game together, we had minimal good ball, as Leeds held the field position.

    "You need to put them under the pump more than we did today."

  82. Post-match reaction

    FT: Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Leeds head coach Brian McDermott told Sky Sports: "It was a hard fought win and at times we looked good but I think if we weren't good offensively and defensively then Castleford would have had a crack.

    "We didn't see the best of Castleford and I compliment my players for that.

    "Daryl [Powell] and Cas won't be happy with the errors they made but there were blue shirts around.

    "While they made some breaks, some great defensive efforts by us forced the errors."

  83. Post-match reaction

    FT: Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Leeds captain Danny McGuire told Sky Sports: "It was like an amateur game today, having to get up early, having our breakfast and coming out to play.

    "It was always a tough physical battle, we went hammer and tongs with them and our middle boys were brilliant today."

    "We had to work hard there and didn't concede a try while Ryan Hall was off which was pleasing.

    "We wanted to get off to a good start and now it's all about resting and recovering for Monday."

    Stuart Dickens

    Wakefield assistant coach on BBC Radio Leeds

    "Castleford had plenty of half-opportunities but weren't clinical enough with them. They'll have positives to take from it. But if you give Leeds the ball, they'll score plenty of points against you. And they defend well on the back of it, don't they?"

    Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos (Shenton, con Gale)

    Wow. Zak Hardaker has to clear like a footballer as a hack through by Ashley Gibson pops dangerously around the Leeds in goal.

    Drop out for the Rhinos.

  90. TRY

    Castleford Tigers 12-26 Leeds Rhinos (Shenton, con Gale)

    Castleford's Michael Shenton does get in this time for a second try of the game, having exchanged passes with winger Justin Carney down the left to create the score.

    Luke Gale slots the goal to reduce the deficit to 14 points.

    Castleford Tigers 6-26 Leeds Rhinos

    If there is a positive for Daryl Powell against his former club, then it is the fact Castleford haven't given up trying to play in this one.

    Great position inside the 10, but Michael Shenton has the ball smashed from his grasp and the move fizzles out.

  92. Post update

    Castleford Tigers 6-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Clever kicking by Leeds pins Castleford back in their own half.

    That is the type of ruthlessness that wins Super League titles.

    "Great cover defence from Leeds - they've caught Shenton and managed to bundle him eight or nine metres into touch."

  94. Post update

    Castleford Tigers 6-26 Leeds Rhinos

    No way through Michael Shenton after a 50m short-side break by Castleford looked to take them right into Leeds territory.

    Not for the first time Shenton is ditched into touch, testament to the Rhinos defensive effort.

  95. Try review: No try

    Castleford Tigers 6-26 Leeds Rhinos

    Justin Carney is over... but referee Ben Thaler says no try after a video referee review.

    Castleford might just have seen their lifeline in this match flicker away with that decision.

  99. TRY

    Castleford Tigers 6-20 Leeds Rhinos (Hall)

    Sweeping move by Leeds across from right to left and Ryan Hall scores. Try two for him. Danny McGuire the architect. Nice timing by Joel Moon to release the final pass, and Leeds were too hot for Castleford there, slick hands.

    Adam Cuthbertson gets over but Luke Dorn stopped him by getting under the ball. Great defence by Castleford.

    Castleford then raced up field through Justin Carney but Ash Handley stopped him as he looked certain to cross, while Dorn knocked on in the next phase. Let off for Leeds but crucial defence.

    Leeds lead at half-time, a good omen as they are undefeated in their last five meetings with Castleford, including last year's Challenge Cup success. Castleford's last win against the Rhinos was in February 2013.

    In the day's final Super League game, in-form Huddersfield take on Salford and will be attempting to stop a magician.

    Red Devils half-back Rangi Chase has been in supreme form so far this term, and Giants head coach Paul Anderson says the England international is high in their thoughts ahead of this evening's game.

    "We've talked a bit about him in our practice stuff," Anderson told BBC Radio Leeds. "It's hard to get ready for one thing because he can do something else. He's got the ball on a string at times and it's hard to defend against or practice against."

    So what have you made of that first half at The Jungle? Leeds ahead 16-6 and have gone over for three fairly routine tries.

    Stuart Dickens

    Wakefield assistant coach on BBC Radio Leeds

    "Leeds could have had another try or two. Castleford haven't had many opportunities, partly down to the errors they've made. They've not had much field position and they need to spend a little bit more time down in Leeds' area. Conditions aren't great but it's not dampened the teams' enthusiasm to play rugby."

  118. HALF-TIME

    Castleford Tigers 6-16 Leeds Rhinos

    Cor. What a first-half.

    It has been breathless this one.

    Leeds lead, despite spending 10 minutes early on after Ryan Hall's sin-binning, thanks to some quality half-back play by Danny McGuire and Liam Sutcliffe and tries from Joel Moon, Ryan Hall and Stevie Ward.

    You can't fault the Castleford application, but they've been undone on occasions by slick play.

    Michael Shenton's try has them in the game, but they need greater accuracy and ruthlessness when close to the Leeds line.

    "Credit to Stevie Ward - he missed a lot of last season but he's made that right back-row position his own. He looks more robust and he's playing extremely well in that back row. Every try Leeds have scored has been from a Castleford error, which is very uncharacteristic."

  120. TRY

    There's been a lot of talk about the Leeds youngsters coming through the ranks and two of them combine for a third try for Brian McDermott's side.

    Sutcliffe clips over to give Leeds a 10-point lead close to the hooter.

    Adam Cuthbertson and Grant Millington

    Both teams have mobile props who can offload, and Adam Cuthbertson has been one of the stand-out players in the competition since his arrival at Leeds from Newcastle Knights.

    On the Castleford side, Grant Millington spent much of last season in the back-row and his handling is equally slick.

    Veteran props Jamie Peacock and Andy Lynch need no introduction - they will bring power and skill.

    It's going to be a great contest.

  146. Post update

    Stuart Dickens

    Wakefield assistant coach on BBC Radio Leeds

    "Castleford are a really good side and you've got to be prepared to go set-for-set with them. Leeds need to look after the ball. If they give Cas field position, they can be a threat. Leeds have got so much strike in their team. The combinations are playing very well this year. Rob Burrow, Zak Hardaker, Ryan Hall - they're all playing well."

  147. Pre-match thoughts

    Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (12:45 BST)

    Leeds head coach Brian McDermott told BBC Radio Leeds: "We've had some very challenging games against Wigan and Catalans and overcame them, so we should be confident going into Easter.

    Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell told BBC Radio Leeds: "Leeds are the form team of the competition at the moment. Adam Cuthbertson has added a fair bit to them, and they're sharp everywhere. It's a real marker. If we perform, we give ourselves a good chance."

    Full-back Luke Dorn is back from a nasty facial injury to take his place in the Castleford team today.

    Earlier this week, the 32-year-old Australian signed a new contract with the Tigers until the end of the 2016 season.

    "I didn't really want to leave and I've always wanted to extend my time at Cas," the former London Broncos man told BBC Radio Leeds. "When the opportunity came up, I was more than happy to take it.

    "Coming back to Castleford has worked out fantastically for me and I couldn't be happier."

    Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (12:45 BST)

    Liam Sutcliffe

    The man tasked with filling the boots of Kevin Sinfield today, and in the past two games, has been academy product Liam Sutcliffe.

    Sutcliffe, 20, is a boyhood Rhinos fan who names his mentor as his sporting hero and shares remarkable similarities in playing style with the skipper.

    Capable of playing stand-off or loose forward, the Leeds-born playmaker has England academy honours, and has racked up 20 tries in 48 games for the Rhinos since his 2013 debut.

    "Liam's come in and done a brilliant job, it's good and keeps everyone on their toes," fellow half-back Danny McGuire, who captains Leeds today, told BBC Sport.

  153. 'Haves and have nots'

    Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (12:45 BST)

    Wheldon Road in Castleford

    "The Jungle" is one of rugby league's most atmospheric grounds and it should be at full volume today, for a derby once described by former Cas player John Kear as a contest between the "haves" and the "have nots".

    Last season brought Castleford a little closer to their big city rivals Leeds, finishing above them in the table, while their 2014 Challenge Cup meeting at Wembley produced a first all-Yorkshire final at the national stadium since 1986.

    However, Leeds have the upper hand in the form book - the Rhinos are undefeated in the last five meetings. Castleford's last success came on home turf in February 2013.

  154. Get involved

    Seven rounds in, and there are two teams clear at the top of Super League. The rest are packed together like proverbial sardines.

    Wins for Hull KR, Widnes and Catalans

    Hull KR fans

    Round eight of Super League began last night with two local derbies, and a third game between two clubs that aren't located quite so close to each other. In fact, Catalans Dragons never have a local derby, do they?

    Anyway, the French side's 40-4 win at bottom club Wakefield was as routine as they come, Damien Cardace scoring a hat-trick of tries.

    Widnes, who welcomed back captain Kevin Brown from injury, ran in six tries in their 30-10 success against Warrington.

    In the Hull derby, it was Hull KR who took the spoils against neighbours Hull FC, Rovers winning 20-6 at the KC Stadium and sending their colourfully-dressed supporters home happy.

    Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (12:45 BST)

    Kevin Sinfield

    Kevin Sinfield has won everything there is to win and broken pretty much every record there is to break during his time at Leeds Rhinos.

    The Oldham-born stand-off made his Leeds debut as a 16-year-old and was named captain at the age of 22.

    Countless honours followed, both personally and for his beloved Rhinos.

    Nicknamed "Sir Kev" by Leeds supporters, Matt examined Sinfield's achievements and his rugby league legacy.

  158. Sinfield to switch codes

    Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (12:45 BST)

    Kevin Sinfield

    If you missed it earlier this week (and I'm sure you didn't), Kevin Sinfield announced he will be leaving Leeds Rhinos at the end of the Super League season and joining Championship rugby union side Yorkshire Carnegie.

    The former England captain, 34, has agreed an 18-month contract with Carnegie.

    "I am fortunate as a professional player in this era that opportunities like this exist for me and it is something I want to grab with both hands," said Sinfield.

    Leeds head coach Brian McDermott added: "Unparalleled, inspirational, a player to be envied."
