Thursday 29th October, 17:30, Super League Round 19, Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens, Leeds Rhinos versus Wakefield Trinity Match Preview

Leeds go into this West Yorkshire derby fresh from a 28-24 victory over another West Yorkshire rival – Castleford – on Monday night. The Rhinos, however, remain in fifth whilst Wakefield finally lifted themselves off the bottom of the table with a 48-18 hammering of wooden spoon-competitors Hull KR. Incidentally, that, and an 18-14 win over Huddersfield the week before, handed Trinity their first back-to-back wins for the first time in 2020.
