St Helens vs Wakefield Trinity: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Wakefield have proved to be no pushovers this season despite losing the opening two games. Trinity have pushed Hull FC and Catalans all the way in the first two games but will have to reach another level if they want to cause St Helens problems.

The Saints have been outstanding in the opening two games scoring 66 points and just conceding 14 as they put Catalans and Hull FC to the sword. Already looking like the team to beat, most are expecting them to make it three from three.

But can Wakefield shock them? Time will tell.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at the Totally Wicked Stadium at 8pm.

Unfortunately the game won’t be available live on TV but the tries will be loaded to the official Super League YouTube channel whilst highlights will be on BBC’s Super League Show.

Predicted Line-ups

St Helens
For the third week in a row, St Helens again named an unchanged 21-man squad as they start the season strongly in virtually every department. This essentially means that there’s just one question. Will Will Hopoate return after missing the win over Hull FC last week through a rib injury? If he does return, Josh Simm who scored twice last week will miss out. The rest of the side is almost certain such has been their start to the season.

Wakefield Trinity
Things aren’t so straight forward for Trinity who are still without halfbacks Lee Gaskell and Mason Lino as well as hooker Liam Hood. At least they have Jacob Miller back and he’ll likely join Brad Walker in the halves whilst Harry Bowes and Liam Kay will cover the number nine spot having impressed last week. Another big question will be whether Willie Poching keeps James Batchelor at centre or uses natural centre Thomas Minns instead. Another boost for the side is the return of David Fifita. Speaking of forwards, I can see Jai Whitbread promoted to the starting XIII after an impressive performance last week.
