Super League leaders St Helens will be looking to secure maximum points and remain top when they visit Wakefield on Saturday.

The visitors head into the clash at Belle Vue aiming to make it a perfect six wins after a faultless start to their season.

Meanwhile, seventh-placed Wakefield are showing good form of their own and will be seeking a third victory on the bounce.

Forwards Mark Flanagan, Anthony Walker, Greg Richards and Luke Thompson are all hoping to make their first appearances of the season in the absence of Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Alex Walmsley, with Jon Wilkin set to switch from the pack to scrum-half in place of the injured Luke Walsh.

Wakefield: Mathers, Fox, Keinhorst, Lyne, Sykes, Godinet, Anderson, McShane, Lauitiiti, Kirmond, Collis, Ryan, Tautai, Smith, Raleigh, Siejka, Sammut, Scruton, Riley.

St Helens: Lomax, Makinson, Jones, Swift, Hohaia, Masoe, Roby, Soliola, Wilkin, Manu, Laffranchi, Flanagan, Amor, Wellens, Greenwood, Walker, Dawson, Richards, Thompson.
