Rangi Chase has flown back to face a court appearance in Australia, leaving his Castleford team-mates unsure whether he will be back in time to line up with them in their Challenge Cup semi-final. "We're all in the dark about it," admitted forward Ryan Hudson over Chase's prospects of facing Leeds on Sunday. "He's such a good player, but if he's not there we have got alternatives."

St Helens – relieved that James Roby has avoided suspension for a dangerous throw – are sweating on James Graham's recovery from a back strain for their semi-final against Wigan.
