Paul Rowley makes surprising Joe Burgess decision ahead of Wakefield Trinity fixture

Buoyed by victory over Warrington Wolves in the Challenge Cup Sixth Round and three wins in a row, Wakefield Trinity came into this fixture full of confidence.

Salford, meanwhile, came into the back of this one off a disappointing defeat to Wigan.

David Fifita missed out again due to injury for Trinity, but Tom Johnstone was back after recovering from concussion.

Joe Burgess was a surprise omission as Ken Sio returned for Salford, with Sam Luckley joining the bench.
