Daryl Powell makes big George Williams decision whilst star man is dropped

Tonight the stage is set for some huge games in the Betfred Super League as Leeds Rhinos host Hull KR, Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves butt heads on Sky Sports and of course a big match at the bottom as Wakefield Trinity travel to Huddersfield Giants.

If Wakefield win they will close the gap on Castleford Tigers in the battle to avoid the drop to the Championship.

The Tigers take on Hull FC tomorrow in a game that could define their season.

Back to tonight, Wigan and Warrington go into the game fourth and fifth. Though there is a drastic difference between the two positions come the end of the season.

The side finishing fourth, like the rest of the top four, are awarded with a home game in the play-offs whilst the side in fifth become strangers to their home ground as they are forced to go through two difficult away trips to claim the Super League trophy.

They also meet each other in the first week of the play-offs. So, tonight’s result could have a huge impact on how both sides’ seasons develop from here. Both will be determined to put as much space between themselves and seventh in the league.

Speaking of which, tonight’s other game is a battle between seventh and eighth in the league with the winner set to move level on points with sixth place Salford Red Devils who take on Leigh Leopards on Sunday.

The game in question is of course the collision between Rohan Smith’s Leeds Rhinos and Willie Peters’ Hull KR.

Ahead of tonight’s games, the team news is now in. Looking at the early kick-off at Huddersfield have been abled to name a settled 17 with their spine unchanged in a rare occurrence for this season.

As for Wakefield, the big question was, what would happen to the brilliant Liam kay with Mason Lino back to join Will Dagger in the halves?

The answer is Kay will start at loose-forward as Wakefield look to make it four wins from five.

In the other non-televised game, Rohan Smith has drafted in Blake Austin after his suspension has passed.

He starts in the halves with Corey Johnson dropping to the bench and Luis Roberts moving to 18th man.

The other change is the return of Justin Sangare in place of the injured James Donaldson.

But the big news from that game is of course the debut of Hull KR star signing Brad Schneider in the halves alongside Rowan Milnes.

But in what will be seen as the main event clash, Matt Peet is sticking by his formula of starting Bevan French at six with Jai Field at fullback.

Interestingly, Cade Cust is left out completely and named as the 18th man.

As for Warrington, Daryl Powell has made the bold decision to leave out George Williams after his hamstring injury recently.

Danny Walker is named at stand-off subsequently with Daryl Clark at nine.

He has also been forced to name Matty Russell and Connor Wrench on the wings with Josh Thewlis and Matty Ashton out.
