Wakefield Trinity v Hull FC Preview
Wakefield Trinity welcome Hull FC for a West Yorkshire vs East Yorkshire derby that will likely have a huge say on both clubs seasons.
Wakefield have one of the smallest budgets in the league and as such survival can be there only goal going into each season and it is something that they continue to achieve.
If they are to do that once more this season, they will likely have to pick up wins at home whilst for the Airlie Birds, they need to pick up wins against sides such as Wakefield as they have ambitions to not only finish in the top 6 but to be pushing the play-offs and even for a place in the Grand Final.
Wakefield have been up and down in the opening month or so of the season with 2 wins and 2 losses but they have shown there best form at home.
Hull Fc started well but have struggled recently with just 2wisn form their opening 5 matches heading into this one.
There is some good news and some bad news for Wakefield as there are signs of their long injury list starting to shrink. Tinirau Arona is named to potentially make his season debut but there is no place yet for David Fifita and Danny Brough.
Hull FC are without Adam Swift and Jake Connor due to injury.
Belle Vue can be a tricky place for away teams to visit as not only is it quite a depressing place to watch the sport but it is a ground that is hard for players to get motivated in.
That is especially true for players from a club such as Hull FC who are used to the comforts of the KCOM Stadium.
At Wakefield’s Belle Vue ground the fans are right next to the players and that also makes it a difficult place for visiting players, so the hosts will be wanting to use all of that to their advantage.
Wakefield Trinity v Hull FC Prediction
Here at RLBet, we give out predict for who we think will win and also what we think the winning margin will be but don’t forget that the unpredictable nature of the Super League, this should only be seen as our view.
This is a tough game to predict as you can never be sure of what you will get from these 2.
Hull FC on paper have the better quality but Wakefield have shown time and time again that that is when they are often at their best- just ask Warrington fans and players.
If Wakefield can start well and build there confidence, they are a tough team to beat, especially at home but if Hull FC can get on top, they can drop off.
Unfortunately for away fans, the confidence of their team is also low after last weeks loss against Catalans but we do expect a reaction to that almost surrender and that could be dangerous for Wakey.
In what could be a scrappy game, we are going to back Hull FC to just have too much but this could easily go either way.
