THE TEAM NEWS

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arona, Arundel, Ashurst, Brough, Crowther, England, Fifita, Hampshire, Horo, Huby, Johnstone, Jones-Bishop, King, Kirmond, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Tupou, Wood

Unavailable: Pauli Pauli, Tyler Randell, James Batchelor

  • Wakefield's season got off to the worst possible start as they suffered a shock defeat against newly-promoted London Broncos despite a strong start and now face a tough test as they host St Helens.
  • Trinity head coach Chris Chester described the performance as one of the worst in his time at the club with a big turnaround needed as they attempt to try and right the wrongs of last week’s effort.
  • Chester has been forced into two changes with James Batchelor and Tyler Randell both ruled out with injuries but in better news, he can call upon fit-again Craig Huby and captain Danny Kirmond.

    ST HELENS

    Head Coach: Justin Holbrook

    Squad: Amor, Bentley, Coote, Fages, Grace, Knowles, Lees, Lomax, Makinson, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Naiqama, Paulo, Percival, Peyroux, Richardson, Roby, Taia, Thompson, Walmsley

    Unavailable:

    • St Helens were victors over local rivals Wigan in their opening round derby with Saints scoring a late try to seal the win in a tough game and now travel to Wakefield as they look to start the year with back-to-back victories.

    • Saints have no real injury worries heading across the Pennines and make just the solitary change to last week’s 19-man squad with James Bentley coming in for Jack Ashworth who will turn out for Leigh this weekend.

    • Alex Walmsley made a welcome return from injury last week and looked a real threat for St Helens whilst the evergreen James Roby celebrated his new contract with the try that sealed the game for Saints.

    THE PREDICTION

    Wakefield boss Chris Chester was left questioning his side's ability after their shock defeat to London last week and will need an instant response against a tough St Helens outfit. However, Saints looked solid last week and will prove tough to beat with them likely to compound Wakefield’s woes. Saints can capitalise with some suspect Wakefield defence to put a good number of points on the board with the home side set to begin the year with consecutive defeats.
