Wakefield Trinity v Catalans Dragons

29th April, 2017

Wakefield Trinity will look to put the Easter break behind them this Sunday when they host Catalans Dragons at the Beaumont Legal Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

Three defeats over Easter have stalled Trinity’s progress up the Super League table; however they have the chance to make amends against Sunday’s opponents, who they beat earlier on in the season.

Trinity boast an impressive record against the visitors, winning four out the previous five meetings. April’s 38-18 victory was arguably one of the best performances this season. However, since the defeat Catalans have won four of three of their previous four.

Chris Chester will be boosted by the fact that Joe Arundel and Matty Ashurst have come back from the injuries they suffered during the Easter period.

This means that Chester has named two changes to his squad for Sunday’s fixture. Arundel and Ashurst come in for Jordan Crowther and Max Jowitt.

Just the two changes as well for Catalans head coach Laurent Fraysinous. Greg Bird and Krisnan Inu return from injuries and will replace Ugo Perez and Alrix Da Costa.

Trinity 19-man squad: Tinirau Arona, Joe Arundel, Matty Ashurst, James Batchelor, Mason Caton-Brown, Anthony England, David Fifita, Liam Finn, Ashley Gibson, Scott Grix, Dean Hadley, Keegan Hirst, Craig Huby, Tom Johnstone, Ben Jones-Bishop, Danny Kirmond, Jacob Miller, Sam Williams, Kyle Wood

Catalans 19-man squad: Paul Aiton, Lucas Albert, Louis Anderson, Lambert Belmas, Greg Bird, Thomas Bosc, Julian Bousquet, Rémi Casty, Vincent Duport, Ben Garcia, Tony Gigot, Krisnan Inu, Thibaud Margalet, Sam Moa, Richie Myler, Mickael Simon, Iain Thornley, Luke Walsh, Fouad Yaya
