Predicted Line-ups

Wakefield Trinity
Willie Poching will be forced into a few changes with Thomas Minns dropping out of the squad alongside Liam Kay. The continued absence of Tom Johnstone and Bill Tupou leaves extra strain on the wing spot. The obvious selection would be Lewis Murphy, but after Lee Gaskell played at fullback last time out and Trinity were left without a natural replacement for him when he went off injured. Subsequently, Poching may include both Gaskell and Max Jowitt in the team with the latter possibly on the wing. Elsewhere, Harry Bowes will take the reigns as the replacement nine on the bench.

17 Lee Gaskell
1 Max Jowitt
4 Reece Lyne

Hull FC
In terms of personnel, Brett Hodgson will only have to make one change and on the back of a great win over Wigan, it’s likely to be the only change he makes. With Carlos Tuimavave dropping out through a hamstring strain, Josh Griffin will move into the starting line-up. Elsewhere, the returning Brad Fash will take the loose-forward spot allowing Jack Brown to take the remaining spot on the bench.
