Warrington trio set for return against Wakefield

Matty Russell, Ryan Atkins and Ben Westwood will all be available for Warrington’s clash with Wakefield on Sunday.

The trio missed Warrington’s dominant victory over Oldham in the Challenge Cup at the weekend, three of THIRTEEN injuries Tony Smith was trying to deal with.

Westwood and Russell were not risked as they would have needed injections to play against the Roughyeds while Atkins was never in contention.

But all three are back for the weekend, and in an even bigger boost to Wire, Ryan Bailey, Toby King and Ben Evans will make their returns for the reserves this week.

The trio haven’t made a first-team appearance between them this year, with Evans the only one to play a first-grade game in 2016 having made two appearances for Rochdale.
