Warrington Wolves v St Helens

The Warrington Wolves take on their near neighbours, St Helens, in this round 25 match up from the 2019 Super League season and the great news for fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our Rugby Super League live streaming partners.

This match pits the 2nd placed Warrington against the top of the table Saints but with St \Helens already wrapping up a first place finish, the focus now for Warrington is on finishing 2nd place. After a dip in form over the past couple of months, the Wolves are now just 2 points ahead of Hull FC and 4 points ahead of Wigan and Catalans, so ca win in this one is hugely important in that battle for 2nd.

The fallout out of the appalling scenes on and off of the field in Warrington’s game last week at Les Dracs has hit them hard with a number of injuries and suspensions but with so much quality in their side, the home team will still fancy their chances.

Form

Warrington have won just 2 of their last 6 league games including losses in each of their last 3 matches.

Saints have won 4 of their last 5 matches.

Team News

Warrington are without 8 players form that infamous match against Les Dracs last weekend with Tom Lineham, Blake Austin, Dec Patton, Daryl Clark, Jason Clark, Mike Cooper, Joe Philbin and Jack Hughes all missing.

Luther Burrell is set to make his first start for the Wolves after joining from the Northampton Saints. He is joined by youngsters including Pat Moran, Josh Thewlis and Riley Dean.

Saints make just the 1 change with James Roby dropping out to be replaced by Matty Costello.

Prediction

In any normal week this would be a tough challenge for Warrington as they come into the game on the back of the long trip to Perpignan and in their worse form of the season but when you add in the volume and quality of player they are missing, it is difficult to see anything other than an away win in this one.

If Wolves are to show that they are a team capable of challenging Saints for the title, they will need their second string to step up in this and that makes it a fascinating game that is a must watch for all.
