Hull KR v Wakefield Trinity

Hull KR welcome Wakefield Trinity for this hugely important match up from the 26th round of the 2019 Super League season in a game that both sides will be looking to take a huge step towards safety.

Both Hull Kingston Rovers and Wakefield Trinity start the round on 18 points where they are just 2 points ahead of London who prop up the table.

That just highlights the importance of the win for both sides, especially with both teams struggling for form and with matches running out.


Hull KR have won 3 of their last 6 matches whilst Wakefield have now lost each of their last 5.

Team News

Hull KR make 3 changes for this one with Craig Hall, Mitch Garbutt and Kane Linnett all coming in, whilst Danny McGuire is set to play. Will Dagger, George Lawler and Mikey Lewis drop out.

Wakefield make just the 1 change with fan favourite David Fifita dropping out due to surgery. Hull FC loanee Chris Green steps in.


This is a difficult match to predict as both teams are lacking in confidence and both teams are struggling for form. When you couple that with all of the pressure on both sides and the importance of the win and you have a match that will likely be scrappy but one that will likely be close throughout.

Unfortunately for Wakefield fans, there recent form has shown a team lacking creativity and one that is so lacking in confidence that they are unwilling to take chances and in a game where the margins are set to be so close, the extra quality and belief shown in attack by Hull KR likely will prove the difference.
