Wakefield Trinity vs Widnes Vikings Super League Round 6 Preview.


Wakefield picked up their first loss of the season last week in a difficult fixture against Wigan, uncharacteristically unable to break down their opposition, the Vikings on the other hand are trying to pick up their fourth straight loss of the season.

Widnes don't have the best record against Trinity, 4 of the last 5 meetings between the these two clubs have resulted in a Wakefield victory, to find a Widnes win over Wakefield you have to go all the way back to the 21st August 2016. 

The Vikings are without the suspended Wellington Albert after he was charged with a Grade B dangerous contact, he is replaced by Macgraff Leuluai in the only change to the 19 man squad from last week's defeat. Reegan Hirst is the only change to the side that faced Wigan last week, replace by Mason Caston-Brown.

Widnes Vikings - Rhys Hanbury, Stefan Marsh, Krisnan Inu, Charly Runciman, Joe Mellor, Chris Houston, Matt Whitley, Chris Dean, Danny Craven, Tom Olbison, Sam Wilde, Greg Burke, Macgraff Leuluai, Jordan Johnstone, Ryan Ince, Ed Chamberlain, Ted Chapelhow, Brad Walker, Aaron Heremaia. Widnes are still without Hep Cahill, Tom Gilmore and Jay Chapelhow. 

Wakefield Trinity - Tinirau Arona, Matty Ashurst, Mason Caton-Brown, Anthony England, David Fififta, Liam Finn, Scott Grix, Ryan Hampshire, Justin Horo, Craig Huby, Tom Johnstone, Ben Jones-Bishop, Danny Kirmond, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller, Pauli Pauli, Tyler Randell, Bill Tupou, Kyle Wood.

I'm backing Trinity to pick the win up, Wakefield have a very good head to head record against the Vikings, even more so recently, Wakefield are determined to get the top four finish that they have built towards in the last few seasons and know every loss dents the chances of that coming to it fruition. I'm backing Trinity by 12+ to take the two points.
