Wakefield welcome Castleford in huge match in race for playoffs

Posted by

Wakefield Trinity host Castleford Tigers at the Mobile Rocket Stadium in what could be a huge match in terms of the race for the playoffs.

The two sides are just separated by two points as they look to put pressure on Catalans Dragons in the final playoff position.

The home side come into the game hoping to bounce back after a 44-10 defeat at the Dragons last week.

The Tigers also come into the game off the back of a defeat, after losing 18-10 to Leeds Rhinos.

Wakefield are boosted by the returns of Max Jowitt and James Batchelor after injury layoffs.

Their West Yorkshire rivals also have an injury boost as Oliver Holmes comes back into the squad after an injury layoff. They also welcome back Jake Trueman, Tuoyo Egodo and Jacques O’Neill.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm

Key Battle

Mason Caton-Brown vs. Tuoyo Egodo- Two wingers who certainly know where the try line is. Caton-Brown can shift and is a real danger on his wing. Egodo is a very efficient player who knows his way around a finish. Should be a great battle on that wing.

Prediction

This will be a close game, but I think I will just give it to Wakefield, purely for home advantage. I think they will win by six points. (13/2 Betfred)
