RICHARD Agar has amended his Wakefield Trinity Wildcats squad to face Leeds Rhinos on Boxing Day.

Kyle Wood, Lee Smith and Vince Mellars have all dropped out of the initial squad for the annual Heatshot Festive Challenge at Headingley Carnegie on Wednesday (kick-off 11.30am).

The drop-outs mean young under-19s prop James Healy makes the replacements bench for the clash and is likely to get his first run-out in the ’Cats first team, and Reece Lyne will start at centre.

Tickets for the match are available on the gate from Headingley Carnegie priced at £20 for adults, £13 concessions and £5 juniors.

Amended Wildcats squad: Mathers, Fox, Collis, Lyne, Cockayne, Sykes, Smith, Poore, Aiton, Trout, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Washbrook. Subs: Wildie, Cowling, Walshaw, Goulding, Slater, Healy.
