Wakefield Trinity is back at Belle Vue for the first time in a fortnight as we look to add to our home winning streak against Warrington Wolves on Sunday.
Following back-to-back home victories against Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils, Trinity will be looking to maintain their good form at home to our Cheshire counterparts as we welcome them for the first time in 2023.
A Will Dagger extraordinary drop-goal was the difference last time out as we celebrated our 150th year Heritage Round in style, the halfback slotting home an inspired kick in front of the South Stand to send the Be Well Support Stadium into pandemonium, securing a vital 27-26 victory over the Warriors.
However, the week prior, the atmosphere wasn’t so tense, Trinity easing to victory with an inspired performance against Salford Red Devils, Reece Lyne, Liam Kay, Lee Kershaw & Will Dagger all on the scoresheet.
A defeat to Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium unfortunately followed, however, now, our focus turns to Warrington, facing Darrel Powell’s side for the second time in 2023. Trinity has looked good in recent years against Wire, picking up back-to-back sensational victories away at the Halliwell Jones last season, in both the Challenge Cup & Super League.
This fine form continued in the home clash when the two sides met last June, Trinity reigning victorious once again with an incredible 30-24 win.
An electric start to the campaign saw the Wolves flying high at the start of 2023, winning all eight of their games at the start of the season.
However, a tricky few months have followed and a string of inconsistent results has meant that Warrington have slipped to fifth in the overall Super League standings.
With two defeats in July, Wire will be heading across the M62 to the Be Well Support Stadium hungry to get back to winning ways.
The game will also double up as the Club’s Inclusion Round as we showcase all the great emerging teams associated with Wakefield Trinity, paying homage to our Ladies’, PDRL, LDSL & Wheelchair sides as well as celebrating our successful girls’ development programmes.
Kicking off the day at 11:45am, Wakefield Trinity Ladies welcome Oulton Raidettes as the two sides meet for the first time in 2023 as Trinity continues their search for a victory this season.
However, team spirit remains high in the camp, bettered in the side’s last outing as Ebony Hardcastle, Sophia Liu & Katie Evans crossed the whitewash against Widnes two weeks ago.
Following the conclusion of our Ladies’ contest, participants of our all-new Girls Development Programme will take to the field at 1:40pm after its introduction earlier this year. While our Rugbees participants will take centre stage at half-time, showcasing the work they have been putting in over the past few months.
Upon the final whistle of the Men’s game with Warrington, our Physical & Learning Disability Rugby League sides will close down the day, with PDRL playing an internal ‘State of Origin’ style game, with our LDSL side taking part in a round-robin festival against Sheffield Eagles and the Wolves, themselves.
Our PDRL, LDSL & Wheelchair RL side will also be making their way around the perimeter of the pitch at half-time of the Men’s game, whilst the Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup trophy will also be in attendance.
Make sure you are there for the full day as we loads scheduled to celebrate our incredible Inclusion Teams.
