Elliott Whitehead was named in Bradford's starting line-up for today's Stobart Super League encounter at Castleford Tigers.

The homegrown back-rower, 22, replaced John Bateman in the starting line-up as the Bulls sought to bounce back from last weekend's defeat to Catalan Dragons.

There was no place in the 17 for prop Phil Joseph as coach Mick Potter kept faith with last week's side.

Bulls: Kearney, Crookes, Purtell, Walker, Kear, Sammut, Gale, Kopczak, Diskin, Hargreaves, Sibbit, Whitehead, Langley.

Interchange: Donaldson, Scruton, Burgess, L'Estrange

Castleford: Owen, Griffin, McGoldrick, Arundel, Dixon, Chase, Orr, Emmitt, Milner, Walker, Holmes, Mitchell, Jones Interchange: Massey, Nash, Clark, Ferres
