Workington Town fans' favourite Fuifui Moimoi returns to the squad today to take on Newcastle Thunder in League 1.

Moimoi is named on the subs bench for this afternoon's clash at Derwent Park, alongside Sam Hopkins, Caine Barnes and former Distington amateur Clayton Sutton also takes his place there.

Perry Singleton returns to the starting line-up at centre with Gordon Maudling also back in the opening XIII at second row after missing last week's match.

There are some familiar faces in the Newcastle Thunder line-up with ex-Town stars Liam McAvoy and Conor Fitzsimmons both in the starting line-up under new director of rugby Denis Betts.

The two sides will clash in the league this week and then meet again the following Sunday, back at Derwent Park, in the fourth round of the Coral Challenge Cup.
