Warrington v Wakefield: 21-man squads and injury update

Warrington and Wakefield have both announced their 21-man squads for Friday night’s round nine fixture at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (KO 7:45pm).

The Wolves will be keen to bounce back after last week’s Challenge Cup semi-final disappointment, which saw their Wembley dreams dashed by a 35-20 loss to Castleford.

Despite not being in Cup action, Trinity did have a game last week as they took on Leigh at home, holding on to win 30-20 – their third straight victory.

Warrington Wolves

Warrington are unchanged from last week, with rookies Rob Butler, Josh Thewlis, Connor Wrench and Ellis Longstaff all named despite missing out. There’s still no Jason Clark (calf), Greg Inglis (hamstring), Matty Ashton (ankle) or Eribe Doro (suspended).
