I always love a conspiracy theory and this is a prime game which has one IMO. A Wakefiled loss tonight and they get relegated - Catalans are by virtue of a gurantee given to them at the beginning of the season will not be relegated. Another team in the running to be relegated are the Castleford Tigers. Both Wildcats and Castleford meet in the final round next week therefore a win by the Wildcats today will ensure that next week's match will mean something. It has been slated as the skysports game of the week as well. Something tells me Bradford will roll over today, they are resting a couple of their backs and this match means absolutely nothing to them as their spot in the playoffs is secure. This match is also being shown by skysports.
Wakefield also seem to perform well against the Bulls for some reason. They did the double over them last season and they lost narrowly in the opener this season when the two teams met.
Mind you, by rights Bradford should smash the Wildcats tonight - so taking the risk on the more desperate team to provide a strong showing.
Wolves need one more win of the 2 remaining games to secure a playoff spot. With the Saints being their last game, and coupled with the fact that Hull have already locked up 2nd spot and playing a couple of youngsters today, perfect spot for the Wolves to win as the home dog. Taken the points for insurance as Wolves always seem to find a way to lose even in a winning position.
