An intriguing game awaits on Saturday evening when Wakefield take on Warrington. There are a couple of questions that some will ask. Are Wakefield starting to run out of steam? And, did Warrington’s win last week breathe new life into their season?
Wakefield have had an excellent season so far – as they currently sit in fifth place – but have lost their last three games in all competitions – though they have all been against sides above them in the table.
Warrington, by contrast, have been a huge disappointment this season. Just when their season showed signs of revival they went on another losing run, and they weren’t convincing in their win over Catalans. They will be boosted by the return of Stefan Ratchford from suspension, but Joe Westerman misses out.
Wakefield have also made two changes to their 19-man squad with Dean Hadley and Jordan Crowther potentially having a part to play.
It’s the home side who are favourites – but only ever so slightly at 10/11, with Warrington available at 21/20. You can get a two-point start on the handicap for the Wolves – and Wakefield are 11/10 to cover it. That’s a bet we fancy.
If Wakefield manage to get on a roll, it wouldn’t be surprising if they put a little bit of distance between themselves and Warrington. A win by 11-15 points for Trinity at 9/1 could be worth a small go.
