Wakefield Trinity v St Helens

Wakefield Trinity welcome the league leading St Helens to Belle Vue for this game that could prove massively important for both teams and that sets it up to be a fascinating match up from round 11 of the 2018 Super League season.

After such a strong start to the season, things have quickly gone downhill for Trinity but if they can pull off a shock win against this inform St Helens team, it could be just the boost they need to start looking up the table once again instead of looking at the teams below them as they have now dropped down to 7th in the table and are getting dragged into the battle for the top 8.

Things for St Helens on the other hand have just continued to go from strength to strength and they go into this round 11 game sitting top of the Super League table and with a 4-point lead over Wigan.

Saints will be looking to keep that lead at the top in tact whilst Wakefield are simply looking to rebuild their season, which sets it up to be a fascinating match.

Form

After starting the season with 4 straight wins, Wakefield have now lost each of their last 5 outings.

St Helens have lost just the 1 game all season long and are undefeated on the road.

Team News

Wakefield make 4 changes as they look to stop their losing run with the experienced trio of Liam Finn, Scott Grix and Anthony England joined by Chris Annakin. James Batchelor, Max Jowitt, Pauli Pauli and Ryan Hampshire make way.

Ben Barba is back for Saints but James Roby is injured. Matty Costello could make his debut.

Prediction

We expect this game to much the same way as many of the recent games for Wakey, they will compete well, maybe even take a lead but in the end Saints will run out the winners.

St Helens have the better quality squad and lost importantly they have all of their best players full of confidence whilst Wakefield have lacked belief recently.
