Wigan Warriors vs Wakefield Trinity Super 8's Round 4 Preview


Wigan will look to carry on their good run of form into the home straight, the Warriors putting in a flawless performance last week against the league leaders, Wakefield also enjoying success in round 3 with a win over Huddersfield.

The Warriors have a 100% record in 2018 against Trinity, a 30-18 and a 32-16 win sending the Warriors into this game with 3 wins out of their last 5, the last time Wigan lost to Trinity was the 2017 play off that ended their season.

A huge announcement coming out of the 19 man squad, Dan Sarginson making himself unavailable for the game due to a family bereavement, he makes way for Dom Manfredi, the talented back returning after suffering 2 ACL injuries in the space of 18 months. Wakefield make two changes to the squad that beat the Giants last week, Chris Annakin makes a return following his late call up against the Giants; he has been joined by Joe Arundel. They will replace Max Jowitt and Anthony England

Wigan Warriors: John Bateman, Tony Clubb, Tom Davies, Morgan EscarĂ©, Ben Flower, Oliver Gildart, Joe Greenwood, Gabe Hamlin, Willie Isa, Tommy Leuluai, Dom Manfredi, Romain Navarrete, Sean O’Loughlin, Oliver Partington, Sam Powell, Dan Sarginson, Ryan Sutton, Sam Tomkins, George Williams.

I'm backing a Wigan win in this one, the Warriors are looking like a well oiled machine in the run up to the finals, Wigan by 13+
