Wakefield Trinity v Salford Red Devils Preview
Wakefield Trinity welcome the Salford Red Devils across the Pennines from Greater Manchester to West Yorkshire for a match up that will have a massive say on the season for both teams.
Both Wakey and Salford have the quality to beat anybody on their day but they do struggle for consistency and don’t have the star power and squad depth to consistently battle it out towards the top of the table but on their day, they can give us the same quality of action as anybody else.
With that in mind, the outcome of the game is about so much more than simply the win as these are two teams that rely on confidence and building form for survival and matches between the 2 can really go along way towards making or breaking the season.
Belle Vue Stadium is host to this one and unfortunately it is a well below par stadium that fails to inspire players and fails to produce an atmosphere to match the passion of the fans in the stands.
With the importance of the game for both sets of players it is disappointing that matches at the elite level of the sport in the northern hemisphere can still be played at a ground like Belle Vue but that is something that the players will have to deal with and something that the Wakey players will be hoping to use to their advantage.
Wakefield Trinity v Salford Red Devils 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.
Despite these 2 sides been amongst the most historic and successful clubs in the sport, there have been few major matches played between the 2 sides.
One such occasion did occur in the 2001 season when the battled each other in the final game of the season that Wakefield needed to win to stay in the Super League.
Wakey managed to do just that and condemned their neighbours Huddersfield to the drop.
