Wakefield Trinity vs St Helens Super League Round 11 Preview

It's hard to believe that these two sides were the front runners of the competition after 4 games, Wakefield were on a 4 game winning streak, now Trinity looking to avoid their sixth consecutive loss in a row. St Helens on the other hand are in much better form, losing just one of their last 10 games.

Wakefield and Saints faced off three times in the 2017 season, St Helens winning 2 out of the 3 meetings, the closest games were decided by just 4 points, whereas, St Helens did grab a 25 point victory over Trinity in the 2017 season, this was the highest margin of victory. That one Wakefield win that Trinity recorded was the only win over Saints in their last 10 attempts.

Wakefield welcome back some of their big guns, Liam Finn, Anthony England, Scott Grix and Chris Annakin all return to Chris Chester's 19 man squad. St Helens bring young Matty Costello into their 19 man squad, he replaces talismanic hooker James Roby who misses out due to a rib injury.

Wakefield Trinity: Scott Grix, Tom Johnstone, Bill Tupou, Reece Lyne, Ben Jones-Bishop, Jacob Miller, Liam Finn, Kyle Wood, Anthony England, Matthew Ashurst, Daniel Kirmond, Tyler Randell, Justin Horo, Tinirau Arona, Craig Huby, Joseph Arundel, Keegan Hirst, Jordan Baldwinson, Christopher Annakin.

St Helens: Jonny Lomax, Tommy Makinson, Ryan Morgan, Mark Percival, Theo Fages, Matty Smith, Kyle Amor, Zeb Taia, Jon Wilkin, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Luke Douglas, Morgan Knowles, Luke Thompson, Dom Peyroux, Danny Richardson, Regan Grace, Matty Lees, Ben Barba, Matty Costello.

I'm backing St Helens to take the win in this match up, they have an incredible head to head record with Trinity and are currently playing some of the best Rugby League I have ever seen a Saints side play. I'm backing St Helens by 7-12 points.
