Match Preview – Wakefield Trinity v St Helens

Round 5 of the Betfred Super 8s will see Wakefield Trinity welcome St Helens to the Beaumont Legal Stadium this evening, kick-off 8pm.

Stakes are extremely high for both teams as the fight for top four continues. A win for Trinity this evening would see them remain in fourth spot with the possibility of moving up to third depending on results this weekend. However, if the visitors get the two points, it would see Saints back in the fight for the fourth spot.

Trinity go into tonight’s game on the back of a victory over Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium last Friday night with two of the tries coming from Tyler Randell on his debut. Whereas Saints will be looking to get back to winning ways after losing out to Wigan Warriors at home.

It will be the third time both sides have faced each other this season, Trinity got the win at the Totally Wicked Stadium back in Round 3 of the Betfred Super League in March. However the home tie in July saw Saints clinch the two points in a tough contest.

Chris Chester has named an unchanged side to face St Helens this evening; Tyler Randell will be in contention of making his home debut.

Saints Head Coach, Justin Holbrook has only made the one change to his 19-man squad with Danny Richardson will replace Kyle Amor.

Trinity 19-man squad: Chris Annakin, Tinirau Arona, Joe Arundel, Matty Ashurst, Mason Caton-Brown, Anthony England, David Fifita, Liam Finn, Scott Grix, Dean Hadley, James Hasson, Keegan Hirst, Craig Huby, Ben Jones-Bishop, Danny Kirmond, Reece Lyne, Jacob Miller, Tyler Randell, Bill Tupou
