Super League preview: Wakefield v St Helens

St Helens will be looking for a return to the top of the Super League table when they travel to Wakefield.

The home side have won their last two though, scoring 106 points in the process, and they will be hoping to carry that form into a fixture where they have rarely had much luck.

In 33 Super League meetings between the two clubs, the Wildcats have only managed seven wins.

Their bid to make it eight is aided by the return from injury of Andy Raleigh and Jimmy Keinhorst, whilst Saints bring in Matty Dawson, Joe Greenwood, Mark Flanagan and Luke Thompson.

Paul Wellens needs one point to reach 1,000 for his career.
