Wakefield Trinity vs Wigan Warriors: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

Two teams at opposite ends of the table do battle today and for the struggling Wakefield it couldn’t come at a worse time.

After conceding 70 against Salford they host the most exciting attacking side in the league in the shape of the electric Wigan Warriors.

As for Wigan, they’ll just want to keep things ticking over keeping the pressure up on rivals St Helens at the top especially after the Champions lost to Catalans yesterday.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 15:00.

There will sadly be no live TV coverage but BBC will show highlights on the Super League Show.

Predicted Line-ups

Wakefield Trinity
Willie Poching won’t be forced into many changes except for a debut for Kyle Evans on the win in place of Tom Lineham. However, other changes could come after last week’s disappointing defeat such as the return of Corey Hall in the centres.

Wigan Warriors
With Liam Farrell and Kaide Ellis picking up knocks last week, Matt Peet may choose to not risk either player. Meanwhile, Thomas Leuluai may return to the halves in a move that could see Wigan revert back to their natural backline with Jai Field at fullback and Bevan French on the wing. John Bateman may also return in place of Farrell in the backrow. Morgan Smithies is still suspended so Joe Shorrocks could remain at 13.
