After a run of five straight defeats – which included a 14-6 away loss at Wakefield – the Warriors have won their last two as they look to work their way back into the top four. Still down on troops, the inclusion of Hastings and Isa will bolster a side that’s starting to grow in confidence again.

Trinity themselves have won just one of their last five - that home game against the Warriors their sole win in six weeks. Chris Chester’s side have scored more points than Wigan this year in what has been a much-improved Wakefield attack, but their defence has leaked over 70 more points than the Warriors and will be a cause for concern on Friday Night.

Jackson Hastings proved to be the difference when these sides met in round 2, and his return could be the difference again.

Prediction: Warriors by 6
