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

When Wakefield met Wigan twice around Easter it marked a turning point in their season which sent them down towards the bottom of the table and into a relegation scrap.

Now they meet again with Trinity still just two points clear of Toulouse at the bottom of the league but will they have the tools to defeat the Warriors this weekend.

It’ll be easier said than done as the Warriors continue to plough towards the play-offs picking up pace in their surge for the Super League title.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 15:00.

There is 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 any changes this week with all 17 of last week’s side still available. Though they lost, it was another solid performance from Trinity as they enjoy an improved run of form. Poching has given himself some space to make changes by including Jack Croft in the squad after he scored twice last week for the reserves and could replace Lee Gaskell who isn’t a natural centre. However, Poching may stick rather than twist.

Wigan Warriors
Like Wakefield, Wigan won’t be forced into changes this week but could be boosted by the return of Liam Farrell. The second-row could see Kai Pearce-Paul or Willie Isa move to centre in place of Jake Bibby as Farrell starts at second-row with Sam Halsall returning to the side impressively recently.
