Wakefield Trinity vs Catalans Dragons Super League Round 20 Preview

Wakefield forward and Former Catalan star, Justin Horo, will be wanting to impress against his former club as the exciting James Batchelor makes way due to a head injury in this crucial battle for a top eight place on Saturday ( kick off 18.30)

The Dragons have had a superb run of form recently and half back, Josh Drinkwater, will be looking to kick on after his star performance last week against the Castleford Tigers . Drinkwater's performance has caught the eye in the last few games and the hot weather will suit the fast running game of PNG international, David Mead, and a consistently improving Catalan backline .

But this Wakefield team are no mugs as proven last week when they pushed league leaders St. Helens for the full eighty.
Reese Lyne, Tom Johnstone and Ben Jones- Bishop are high quality performers and that sheer pace in the back line on a very fast track could be the key to this game .

Big Sam Moa returns for the Dragons and he will be ably supported by the in form Louis Anderson and the ever reliable Frenchman, Remi Casty .Expect a further big game from Kenny Edwards who has blended in superbly since his arrival from the Parramatta Eels.

In Jacob Miller Wakefield perhaps have a touch more class in the halves and big forwards; Fifita ,Pauli ,Horo and Ashurst should give Trinity that extra advantage as we move into the later stages of this game .

I’m predicting a close game with the outstanding Tom Johnstone likely to feature strongly .Trinity should take this game by eight -twelve points
