St Helens have won their last five away meetings with Wakefield, including a 2020 fixture at Headingley.

Trinity’s last home victory against the Saints was 24-20 on April 15, 2018, and it would be a surprise if the relegation-threatened Yorkshiremen turned the tables on the defending champions.

Heading into the clash, Saints winger Tommy Makinson needs one try to draw level with former team-mate, Leon Pryce, in joint eighth place in the list of Super League’s all-time leaders.
