Wakefield Trinity v Wigan Warriors Preview
Wakefield Trinity welcome the giants of Wigan Warriors for a cross Pennines match up that has all of the hallmarks of been an entertaining 80 minutes of action.
Wakefield Trinity are a club with lots of promise, lots of quality but who have a ground that holds them back and a lack of depth that often see’s them lose far too many players to injury.
They are also lacking in the facilities and support staff to really take fitness and recuperation to the next level to really propel the club onwards and it is often those fine margins off of the field and behind the scenes that makes all of the difference out on the field.
One club who spare no expense in every facet of a Rugby club are the Wigan Warriors so it is no surprise that not only do they enjoy success in terms of trophies and titles so often but that they have incredible strength in depth to deal with injury concerns.
Over a season all of that will always play into the favour of the Warriors but on any given match day, Wakefield know that they have a chance to take on and defeat any body and as they have shown time and time again, including a thrashing of the Warriors a few years back, at Belle Vue they are difficult to beat and can pull of a surprise win.
Belle Vue is host to this one and what can you say about Wakefield’s ground? Well I suppose the best way to describe it will be, it is a dump. But those who go regularly and who don’t have rose tinted glasses on will give you a few more choice descriptions.
Whilst the stands are crumbling and the view can often be obstructed for fans and with a lack of roofs will are likely to get wet or blinded by the sun- and of course the atmosphere gets lost, one positive you can say about the ground is that it has a full length and wide pitch which can help to give us free flowing and action packed matches.
