Wakefield Trinity vs Widnes Vikings

Wakefield Trinity of the Super League welcome the Widnes Vikings of the Championship to the Mobile Rocket Stadium for this round 6 match up from the 2019 Challenge Cup in what looks to potentially one of the ties of the round.

Wakefield come into this game in decent form and looking for there best ever finish in the league but that has been hindered by an ever growing injury list which has seen Tini Arona ruled out for the season.

Despite that Wakefield will still be the favourites for many and with Saint and Warrington looking miles ahead of the rest of the Super League, this could be the best chance of silverware for the home side this season and of course a trip to Wembley will aid there hopes to rebuild Belle Vue.

To do that, they must of course get through this round and that will be hugely difficult as they face a Widnes side who have lots of quality, lots of experience and lots of youngsters with potential to be stars of the game. The Vikings also have nothing to lose in this game as their points deductions leads them with little chance of success in the league whilst with the quality they have, they have little to no chance of facing a relegation battle.

Form

Wakefield have won 3 of their last 5 matches but they have now won each of their last 4 at home.

Widnes have also won 3 of their last 5 matches both overall and on the road.

Team News

James Batchelor is back from long term injury to replace the injured Tinirau Arona in the only change for Wakefield.

The Vikings are unchanged from their match against Swinton so the likes of Anthony Gelling and Harrison Hansen are still missing.

Prediction

Despite their injury woes we can only see a home win in this one. Super League teams do tend to have a huge advantage of Championship sides but this is 2 full times teams meeting but with the Vikings not naming key players, they have shown that the league is there major focus this season.
