Preview

The weekend closes with Warrington taking on Wakefield, the Wolves will be looking to exact revenge on Trinity after being stunned by the Dreadnoughts earlier in the season but have home advantage this time around.

Steve Price could hand a debut to Leilani Latu who is included in his 21-man squad for the first time. Sitaleki Akauola is absent after the birth of his first child, while Ben Murdoch-Masila and Anthony Gelling are both suspended.

Chris Chester is without Alex Walker, David Fifita, Jay Pitts and Adam Tangata, following their defeat to Catalans’ in the Challenge Cup, but is able to call upon the services of Chris Green, Josh Wood and Tony Gigot who return to the side.

Prediction

Whilst Wakefield stunned Warrington earlier in the season, Chris Chester’s side have struggled since the restart and find themselves on a three-game losing streak. In contrast, Warrington have won four games on the bounce, including two since the restart, are clear favourites to avenge their defeat to Trinity back in February.
