THE TEAM NEWS

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arona, Arundel, Ashurst, Baldwinson, Batchelor, Brough, Crowther, England, Fifita, Hampshire, Hirst, Horo, Jones-Bishop, Jowitt, King, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Pauli, Wood

Unavailable: Tyler Randell, Craig Huby, James Batchelor, Tom Johnstone, Bill Tupou, Danny Kirmond

  • Wakefield put in a superb performance as they ended Hull FC's winning streak with a dominant display at the KCOM Stadium but that win came at a cost as they suffered a couple of injuries to key players.

  • One of those injuries was a season-ending one for star winger Tom Johnstone after he suffered a ruptured ACL but it will come as a relief that Bill Tupou should be able to return next week.

  • Danny Kirmond is also out after picking up a two-match ban after a dangerous contact charge which sees Keegan Hirst, Max Jowitt and Jordan Baldwinson come into contention having been named in the 19-man squad.

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Atkins, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Hill, Hughes, King, Lineham, Livett, Mamo, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Tasi, Walker

Unavailable: Kevin Brown, Bryson Goodwin, Ben Westwood

  • Warrington held off a late Wigan fightback to seal another win to keep in touch with early leaders St Helens at the top of Super League and they did so despite being a man down late in the game.

  • Ben Westwood was sent off against Wigan for a headbutt which will see the veteran forward miss the next four games and although he pleaded guilty, he failed in his attempt to have his charge downgraded.

  • With Westwood out, Harvey Livett receives a call-up to the side and is likely to fight it out with hooker Danny Walker who takes the final spot on the Warrington bench with Tom Lineham set to miss out again.

THE PREDICTION

Wakefield produced a great display last week but must repeat that level of performance if they are to get anything from Warrington's trip to West Yorkshire. Trinity will be without Tom Johnstone and potentially Bill Tupou which will leave a huge hole in the backs and could force them into a big reshuffle. Warrington on the other hand won’t be disrupted too much by Ben Westwood’s ban and should be able to take full advantage of Wakefield missing two of their key men.
