Wakefield Trinity vs Warrington Wolves Super League Round 18 Preview


Wakefield will come into this fixture full of confidence after a convincing win against the Wigan Warriors in round 17, Warrington however, will be bitterly disappointed after allowing their opponents last week snatch victory out from under their noses, something the Wolves will want set right this weekend.

Warrington took the bragging rights earlier in the year, winning 34-24 after Wakefield staged a late comeback but leaving it too late, meaning the Wolves have now won two of the last three meetings between these two sides.

Wakefield make one change from the dude that ran out winners at Wigan last week, James Batchelor replaced by Chris Annakin, Batchelor carrying a small knock. Warrington also make just the 1 change, Dominic Crosby makes his return to first team action, he replaces George King.

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

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

I'm  expecting a Warrington win in this fixture, the Wolves were very good last week but failed to close the game out in the final stages, no doubt this will have been addressed by Steve Price as his go in search of 2 competition points. I'm backing a Warrington win by 7-12 points.
