THE TEAM NEWS

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Annakin, Arundel, Batchelor, Brough, England, Escaré, Fifita, Hampshire, Jones-Bishop, Kirmond, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Pauli, Randell, Tangata, Tanginoa, Tupou, Wood

Unavailable: Tom Johnstone, Tinirau Arona, Matty Ashurst, Jordan Crowther, George King

  • Wakefield were valiant for much of the first half but a poor spell before the break put the game beyond them as they lost to St. Helens but have made some big moves to try and ease their relegation fears.

  • Trinity have been busy in the transfer market this week as they brought in Adam Tangata, Ryan Atkins and Morgan Escaré and all three could debut here whilst Chris Green was also brought in but he will have to wait for his debut as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

  • Reece Lyne and Danny Kirmond are both doubts for Trinity after suffering hamstring and shoulder injuries respectively last week but have been named in the 19-man squad with head coach Chris Chester hopeful they will be fit.

HULL FC

Head Coach: Lee Radford

Squad: Bowden, Buchanan, Connor, Ellis, Faraimo, Fash, Griffin, Houghton, Lane, Logan, Matongo, Minichiello, Naulago, Satae, Shaul, Sneyd, Taylor, Tuimavave, Washbrook

Unavailable: Matty Dawson-Jones, Andre Savelio, Sika Manu, Mickey Paea, Joe Westerman, Albert Kelly

  • Hull FC were narrowly edged out by Wigan in a high-intensity game last week but a long turnaround could help them respond here as they chase down second spot in the table after Warrington faltered again.

  • The Black and Whites have completed the signing of New Zealand Warriors prop Chris Satae who could make his debut here to add some more punch to their front row after he was named in the 19-man squad.

  • He is joined by Jack Logan, Kieran Buchanan and Danny Washbrook who come in for injured trio Albert Kelly, Joe Westerman and Mickey Paea whilst Chris Green has gone to Wakefield on loan.

THE PREDICTION

Wakefield suffered a fourth-straight defeat as they went down to St. Helens as their desperation for a win increases. They host a Hull side this week that still have second place in their sights and should have too much for Wakefield here as they look to all-but seal a play-off spot. Both teams are likely to have new faces in their line-up and even though Hull are set to be without several players through injury, they should still have too much against the under-performing team.
