Tigers v Trinity Match Preview

14th April, 2017

Wakefield Trinity will make the short journey to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle for our derby against Castleford Tigers on Good Friday, kick-off 2.30pm.

The fixture which is live on Sky Sports will see the two clubs face one another for the first time in the Super League this season. The last meeting was a pre season friendly back in January at the Beaumont Legal Stadium which saw Trinity get the win.

It is going to be a thrilling fixture with the winner not only taking away the two points but also the Adam Watene Trophy which is up for grabs.

Wakefield will be looking at making it four victories on the bounce after beating Leigh Centurions, Catalans Dragons and Widnes Vikings and will also be looking at getting the first win of a busy Easter period with Wigan at home on Bank Holiday Monday and a trip to Warrington Wolves the following Saturday.
