Trinity chasing top four finish

This weekend’s Betfred Super League fixtures bring an end to the regular season and Wakefield will be doing all they can to finish in the top four (Wakefield 50/1 to win the Grand Final).

Chris Chester’s men have been a surprise package this year, with many tipping them for relegation at the start of the campaign.

However, Trinity have continued to defy the odds throughout the season and they sit fourth going into Sunday’s game against St Helens.

Wakey head into the fixture on the back of a 36-8 win over Widnes, while Saints recorded a convincing victory against Catalan Dragons.

A win this weekend would guarantee Wakefield a place in the top four, but they are level on points with third-placed Salford who could still miss out.

The Red Devils will feel confident of beating Leigh on Friday night, while Hull FC will also be under the spotlight when they face Huddersfield.

Lee Radford’s side are one point away from the top four, but they will need either Wakefield or Salford to slip-up (Hull 4/11, draw 25/1, Huddersfield 11/5 – match odds).

The bottom four places are already sealed with both Warrington and Widnes set to fight for their Super League status. The two teams will meet at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday and both sides will be trying to find their best form before the Qualifiers.

Catalan are also consigned to battle for their safety and they are currently preparing for Saturday’s fixture against league-leaders Castleford Tigers.

The remaining fixture of the weekend sees Wigan Warriors take on Leeds at the DW Stadium on Friday, with Brian McDermott planning to make several changes to his Rhinos team.
