Warrington Wolves vs Wakefield Trinity Super Round 7 Preview


Warrington entertain a relatively rested Wakefield side in their round 7 fixture, Wakefield forced to leave the pitch after just 20 minutes of play due to last week's adverse weather conditions, Warrington however were forced to endure minus temperatures and siling rain in the South of France last week in their win over Catalans.

The Wolves faced off against Wakefield twice in 2017, winning the first outing 22-20 but losing the second 26-12, leaving these two on a head to head level all square, however, looking at their last 5 meetings, Warrington do take the slight edge, winning 3 out of 5.

Warrington make two changes ahead of this fixture, Morgan Smith and Dominic Crosby are forced out of the 19 man squad as Ryan Atkins returns from injury, Warrignton also name new signing Josh Charnley in their squad. Wakefield also make two changes to their squad, Tinirau Arona and Kyle Wood make way in the squad for James Batchelor and Keegan Hirst.

Warrington Wolves - Sitaleki Akauola, Ryan Atkins, Kevin Brown, Mitch Brown, Josh Charnley, Daryl Clark, Mike Cooper, Bryson Goodwin, Chris Hill, Jack Hughes, George King, Toby King, Tom Lineham, Harvey Livett, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Joe Philbin, Stefan Ratchford, Tyrone Roberts, Ben Westwood

Wakefield Trinity - Matty Ashurst, James Batchelor, Mason Caton-Brown, Anthony England, David Fifita, Liam Finn, Scott Grix, Ryan Hampshire, Keegan Hirst, Justin Horo, Craig Huby, Tom Johnstone, Ben Jones-Bishop, Danny Kirmond, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller, Pauli Pauli, Tyler Randell, Bill Tupou.

I feel that Warrington are a side playing with the wind in their sails, boosted by the return of Atkins and Charnley joining, it gives me the impression that this will be a tight fixture with neither side giving an inch. I'm backing the Wolves by 0-6.
