THE TEAM NEWS

WARRINGTON WOLVES

Head Coach: Steve Price

Squad: Akauola, Austin, Charnley, D. Clark, J. Clark, Cooper, Currie, Goodwin, Hill, King, Lineham, Livett, Mamo, Murdoch-Masila, Patton, Philbin, Ratchford, Smith, Tasi

Unavailable: Jack Hughes, Matt Davis, Ben Westwood

  • Warrington suffered a sixth league loss in a row as they were defeated by Salford but will hope to get back to winning ways as they face a team they have beaten in eight of their last nine matches.
  • The Wolves rested several of their Challenge Cup heroes last week but the likes of Chris Hill and Mike Cooper are set to return here with Warrington receiving a huge boost with the availability of stand-off Blake Austin.
  • Austin has been missing since picking up an ankle injury against Catalans at the start of August but is named in the 19-man squad here and is also joined by Declan Patton and Toby King with Jack Hughes, Matt Davis, Ben Westwood, Danny Walker and Luther Burrell making way.

WAKEFIELD TRINITY

Head Coach: Chris Chester

Squad: Arundel, Brough, Crowther, England, 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

  • Wakefield were edged out by Wigan in controversial fashion last week and will be keen to respond against another play-off chasing side as they head to Warrington in a bid to secure their Super League status.
  • Trinity will be without Bill Tupou and Chris Annakin for their final two games of the season after the pair suffered injuries last week whilst James Batchelor will also miss this game through injury.
  • George King is back from injury and will come into the 19-man squad and he is joined by young pair Titus Gwaze and Lee Kershaw in what will be a much-changed Wakefield side to the one that took to the field last week.

THE PREDICTION

Warrington will be desperate to get back to winning ways after losing a sixth consecutive Super League game. Wakefield will make things difficult for them this week after showing big signs of improvement in their last two matches which can make this a tight affair but the home side should have too much. They should have their first-choice halfback pairing back for this game as well as their starting props which will give them a huge boost.
