Battle of England Scrum Halves
Sunday afternoon could see two England scrum halves go head to head when the Wolves face the Tigers at the Wish Communications Stadium, kick-off 3.30pm.
With the Rugby League World Cup at the end of the year there is everything to play for with competition for places high throughout the international squad.
Last time the two sides met in Super League was in the opening round of the season when Richie Myler and Rangi Chase locked horns.
The Wolves secured a victory on this occasion with Myler touching down for a try in the 40-24 win.
Both players have represented their sides as regulars so far this Super League season; Myler with 19 appearances and Chase with 20.
The try-scoring chart currently favours Myler with 11 tries to four, but the try assists are at a pretty even standing; Myler (22) and Chase (27).
Myler has made the most clean breaks in the season so far with 17 to Chase's 14 but Chase is in front when it comes to carries and metres made.
Myler, 23, and Chase, 22, are similar in stature at 178cm and 176cm respectively weighing in at 82kg and 84kg so it's a pretty even contest when they step out onto the rugby field.
