Wakefield’s season couldn’t have got off to a worse start away at Hull KR last weekend. A 30-12 defeat and the loss of Danny Brough to injury was hardly on Chris Chester’s wishlist for the beginning of the season. Catalans, too, were caught in between and a rock and a hard place, going down 32-12 against Huddersfield with the signing of Israel Folau going down like a lead balloon in most Rugby League quarters.
The Dragons did thrash Wakefield in the two side’s last meeting – a 44-10 drubbing last July – as well as a 25-18 away victory at the Mobile Rocket Stadium in May, so it’s not all doom and gloom for Catalans’ fans.
Max Jowitt comes into Chester’s 21-man squad in place of Brough while Antoni Maria replaces David Mead in the Catalans squad. Lewis Tierney, Sam Moa, Alrix Da Costa, Mickael Goudemand, and Tom Davies all miss out through injury.
Trinity aren’t the same without Danny Brough, this being a home match based on history doesn’t favor Wakefield all that match, This match will come down to attack and we think Catalans will be too much for Wakefield in this Match.
Catalan Dragons for the win.
