THE TEAM NEWS

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arundel, Atkins, Brough, Crowther, Escaré, Green, Gwaze, Hampshire, Jones-Bishop, Kershaw, King, Kirmond, Kopczak, Lyne, Miller, Randell, Tangata, Tanginoa, Wood

Unavailable: Tom Johnstone, Tinirau Arona, Matty Ashurst, David Fifita, Bill Tupou, Chris Annakin, James Batchelor, Anthony England

  • Wakefield pushed Warrington close last week but it was not enough to prevent a seventh loss in eight Super League matches and now they need to win this final game of the season to ensure they are not relegated.
  • Trinity have been hit by injuries all season and look set to enter the final game of the year with at least eight players unavailable after Anthony England became the latest to go down suffering a hamstring injury last week.
  • He makes way from the 19-man squad as the solitary change with Ryan Atkins likely to come into the side to make what would be his second debut for Wakefield after his arrival from Warrington last month.

LONDON BRONCOS

Head Coach: Danny Ward

Squad: Abdull, Armitage, Battye, Butler, Cunningham, Dixon, Fozard, Gee, Hindmarsh, Kear, Krasniqi, Lamb, Lovell, Mason, Morgan, Pitts, Walker, Williams, Yates

Unavailable: Eloi Pelissier, Morgan Smith, Greg Richards, Matty Fleming, Sadiq Adebiyi

  • London produced a performance full of character as they scored a late try to beat Hull KR which means they take the relegation battle to the final round of the season and will take on another team that are still in danger.
  • The Broncos could name an unchanged side from last week's win as Danny Ward's men seek the points that will keep them in the Super League and they have seen no reason to alter their 19-man squad.
  • Despite London’s brilliant effort to get into this position to give themselves a chance of staying up, the odds are still stacked against them due to their inferior points difference over the other three teams in trouble at the bottom meaning they are down if they fail to win.

THE PREDICTION

London secured a huge win last week to create a four-way battle to see who goes down on the final night of the regular season. The Broncos travel to Wakefield knowing a win would be enough to keep them up but this will be a very nervy affair that could go either way. Wakefield will start as favourites but it is difficult to write this London team off after showing plenty of resolve this season and although the home side should win this, the Broncos could find a way to upset the odds.
