Adrian Lam makes Zak Hardaker decision as star man still absent for Wakefield

Hull FC

This weekend’s Super League action concludes in West Yorkshire.

It is a game many expected to be a relegation four pointer but seems far from it for one side.

That side is the visiting Leigh Leopards who have beaten Hull KR, Super League and World Champions St Helens and Hull FC to start the season and therefore have a six point advantage on their opponents Wakefield Trinity who sit bottom of the league.

Leigh will also be just two points shy of the play-offs with a win on Sunday.

They are taking on a Wakefield side who are still winless who suffered a closely fought defeat against Castleford Tigers last week in Rivals Round which left them cut adrift at the bottom.

Trinity need a win and back at home this perhaps is a good chance against a Leigh side who also lost last week despite a good performance.

The game kicks off at 15:00 at Belle Vue this afternoon.

There is no live coverage of the game but BBC will show highlights on the Super League Show.

The team news is now in and Kelepi Tanginoa remains absent for Wakefield despite being named in the squad after an injury but Josh Bowden does return on a bench alongside Eddie Battye and Kevin Proctor.

Only one of the three Huddersfield Giants loanees plays with Innes Senior left out but Sam Hewitt features.

Sam Hewitt was left out of the 21-man squad.

As for Leigh they are boosted by the return of Gareth O’Brien which allows Zak Hardaker to move into the centres.

Joe Mellor comes into the side on the bench with Ben Reynolds and Lachlan Lam are named in the halves.
