Dean Collis: Returns to the Wildcats lineup after missing last week's trip to Headingley
There is only one Super League fixture this weekend and it's a repeat of Leeds' 20-18 win over Wakefield at Headingley last week.
Just one week later, it's the Rhinos who are on the road as they make the short trip to The Rapid Solicitors Stadium to take on the same opposition.
That may seem surprising considering the champions welcome back England skipper Kevin Sinfield and hard-working prop Kylie Leuluai but the Wildcats are boosted by some fresh legs too.
Most notably, Dean Collis is likely to return in the centre and he will give the hosts some much needed fire-power in attack.
The former Cronulla Sharks man has created more tries for his wingers than any other centre in Super League and he is 14/1 to open the scoring this week - something he did in his last home game for Wakefield.
He leads the average gain-per-carry for the Wildcats - who currently lie ninth in the table - so, should Wakefield cause an upset, he is sure to have a major influence.
Ben Crooks: Out to help Hull FC emulate the team of 2005
In the Challenge Cup semi-finals this weekend, there is not much value to be had in the London Broncos v Wigan game - the Warriors have a +24 handicap - so I'll be focussing on the Hull FC and Warrington's semi-final at the John Smith's Stadium in Huddersfield.
In saying that, the bookies have given Hull FC a 12-point start, pretty big considering what is at stake.
It may have something to do with the Wolves' record in the competition over recent years.
Going from the perennial under-achievers in the cup in the early 2000's, they have gone onto win three of the last four finals at Wembley Stadium.
On Sunday, Warrington will be playing in their 32nd Challenge Cup semi-final having previously won 16 of them.
Hull FC, on the other hand, will be running out for their 24th appearance in the last four - yet they have a woeful record in the cup in recent times.
Having shocked Leeds Rhinos in the 2005 Challenge Cup final, they have only won the prestigious competition twice before then.
Nevertheless, they have a promising chance against Warrington this weekend, especially as they beat them 26-16 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium back in May and pushed them all the way in last year's play-off semi-final.
The Black & Whites have had a mixed 2013 but they have lost just one game by more than 12 points in the Super League - away at Catalans - since round nine.
In a semi-final environment, I can see Hull putting up a good fight and, if they do come off second best, it will not be by much.
