Preview

The action continues at Headingley on Friday evening with League leaders St Helens taking on bottom side Wakefield, with Saints looking to extend their lead at the top and Trinity hoping to climb off the foot of the table.

Chris Chester has star men David Fifita and Ryan Hampshire fit again with Eddie Battye also included. Bill Tupou, Joe Westerman, Chris Green, Romain Navarrete and Tony Gigot all miss out.

Kristian Woolf makes one change from the squad that hammered Wigan last time out with Tommy Makinson returning from his five-match ban in place of Matty Costello.

Prediction

It’s difficult to see anything other than a Saints victory in this one. St Helens have won the last five meetings between the two sides and are on a seven-game win streak in Super League. In stark contrast, Trinity have lost their last nine league matches and will need to produce a mammoth performance to claim the two points on Friday evening.
