St Helens vs Wakefield Trinity: Team news and injuries

ST HELENS take on winless Wakefield Trinity at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night.

Saints themselves have been inconsistent so far in Super League 2023 with three wins from five games, including a 14-12 nailbiter over Huddersfield Giants last week.

Wakefield, meanwhile, are yet to win a game – and it didn’t ever look like last week would have been their first two points either as Hull KR ran out 34-6 victors.

Team news and injuries

Saints will have Mark Percival back in the fold, but Agnatius Paasi could miss out with a knee injury. That could pave the way for George Delaney or McKenzie Buckley to get their first Super League minutes of 2023. Jake Wingfield and Sione Mata’utia also miss out, but Morgan Knowles returns from suspension.

Wakefield could have Will Dagger available for his first appearance in Trinity colours following his swap deal with Hull KR for Corey Hall. Kevin Proctor is also in for Renouf Atoni.
