St Helens vs Wakefield Trinity Super League Round 19 Preview


Wakefield currently sit in a comfortable position in the table, but far adrift from the top 4 that many thought they had the potential to squeeze into , last week's win over Widnes pushing them further away from the scrap for 8th place. Saints are still very much in cruise control at the top of Super League, losing only 2 games from their last 18 fixtures.

Wakefield's form against Saints paints an ugly picture for Trinity, St Helens loss in Round 11 of Super League 2018 takes Justin Holbrook's men to 2 out of 4 wins against Wakefield based on recent form, however, looking at the bigger picture Saints have won 9 of the last 10 meetings between these two sides.

Saints name an uchanged squad from their last outing in Super League, welcoming back both Mark Percival and Tommy Makinson from international duty. It's one out one in for Trinity, welcoming back talismanic half Liam Finn but losing Danny kirmond in the forwards to injury.

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


Wakefield Trinity: Tom Johnstone, Bill Tupou, Reece Lyne, Ben Jones-Bishop, Jacob Miller, Liam Finn, David Fifita, Kyle Wood, Anthony England, Matty Ashurst, Tyler Randell, Pauli Pauli, Tinirau Arona, James Batchelor, Keegan Hirst, Max Jowitt, Chris Annakin, Mason Caton-Brown, Ryan Hampshire.

For me there's one clear winner in this game. St Helens have been a juggernaut this season destroying nearly everything in their path, personally I can't see this game being any different and that's why I'm backing Saints to leave with 2 points by a margin of 13+.
