This week’s edition of Squad Watch focuses on the upcoming Rugby League Challenge Cup quarter-finals, bringing you the latest team news ahead of the big matches.

In the first quarter-final, Hull Kingston Rovers host the reigning Challenge Cup champions, the Leigh Leopards, on Saturday evening. Hull KR coach Willie Peters has made two changes to his 21-man squad, with half-back Ben Reynolds (cup tied) and Sam Luckley (suspension) being replaced by Reyes Butterworth and Leo Tennison. Meanwhile, Leigh have received a boost with the news that hooker Brad Dwyer will be available after making his loan move from Warrington permanent. Leigh coach Adrian Lam also revealed that key prop Tom Amone is set to return from injury, a significant lift for the current Challenge Cup holders.

The other quarter-final on Saturday sees the Catalans Dragons welcome the Huddersfield Giants. The Dragons are boosted by the returns of several key players, including Jayden Nikorima, Julian Bousquet, Micky McIlorum, Jordan Dezaria and Bayley Sironen, although they will be without half-back Jordan Abdull and winger Tom Johnstone due to injuries. Huddersfield will be without prop Olly Wilson after he failed a HIA last week, but winger Sam Halsall could return for the Giants.

On Sunday, Castleford Tigers host the Wigan Warriors, while St Helens take on the Warrington Wolves in an all-Super League clash. The full 21-man squads for these two matches are yet to be announced.
