With Wakefield’s game against Catalans postponed last weekend, this home fixture against Warrington will be just their second game of the season. A 30-12 opening weekend defeat to Hull KR was not exactly the best way to start 2020, but Warrington will be travelling to the Mobile Rocket Stadium on a high following a brilliant 19-0 triumph over reigning champions St Helens.
Trinity sit in ninth whilst the Wolves occupy fifth spot and Warrington’s position in the league may well have been better had captain Chris Hill not received a red card in their opening round defeat to Wigan.
Wire have won their last six games against the West Yorkshire side, including three consecutive away victories and can certainly pile the pressure on Chris Chester with another victory here.
Jordy Crowther and George King return for Trinity, forcing Connor Bailey and Ryan Atkins out of Chris Chester’s 21-man squad. Meanwhile, Keanan Brand and marquee signing Gareth Widdop have been brought in by Warrington boss Steve Price with Anthony Gelling and Dec Patton dropping out – the former in incredibly controversial circumstances.
Whether Gelling’s misdemeanors affect Warrington will be interesting to see, but the Wolves should still have too much for a Trinity still without talisman Danny Brough. Warrington to win with ease.
