Both teams are out of the fight for the top 4 but the battle for bragging rights is still on as the Wildcats travel to Widnes.


Ben Harrison is in line to make his first Wakefield appearance after being signed on loan from Warrington. One man who won’t be playing is Jordan Crowther who has been dropped from the squad ahead of today’s game.

Widnes, on the other hand, make 6 changes to their squad. This comes following their 38-0 loss to the league leaders Hull FC.

The players recalled by Denis Betts are: Chris Dean, Rhys Hanbury, Stefan Marsh, Setaimata Sa, Gil Dudscon and Tom Gilmore.

With both sides out of the race for the top 4, this match now becomes all about the bragging rights.

Wakefield have lost four games on the trot, including the 56-12 loss to Warrington in the Challenge Cup, and will be looking to end their poor run of results with a big win in Widnes.

Here are the two squads:

Widnes: Ah Van, Brown, Buchanan, Burke, Cahill, J Chapelhow, Dean, Dudscon, Farrell, Gilmore, Hanbury, Heremaia, Houston, Marsh, Mellor, Sa, Thompson, White, Whitley.

Wakefield: Arona, Arundel, Batchelor, Fifita, Finn, Hall, Harrison, Jones-Bishop, Jowitt, Lyne, Mazive, Miller, Molloy, Moore, Scruton, Sio, B Tupou, Walton, Yates.
