Thursday 15th October, 17:30, Super League Round 9, Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, St Helens versus Wakefield Trinity Match Preview

Another rearranged fixture sees St Helens take on Wakefield that should have taken place seven rounds ago. It’s a case of first versus bottom as high-flying Saints – who have eight more wins than their opponents – aim to consolidate their position at the top whilst Wakefield aim to stop a run of nine straight defeats.

There is just one change for Kristian Woolf with young second-rower Jake Wingfield given the nod for the first time in place of James Graham who is self-isolating.
