Saturday’s fixture will see Wakefield Trinity travel to Totally Wicked Stadium and take on St Helens at 3:15pm. It will be an uphill battle for Trinity having only three times this decade against the more fancied Saints line-up.

The matches will be split between Sky Sport and the BBC, with the latter televising the Saturday and Sunday fixtures.
