Last night, the Super League returned in some style as last season’s big stage winners emulated such heroics with victories over Huddersfield and Warrington.
Another three to follow tonight and, arguably, the main game to focus on is actually NOT the one on TV in Hull Kingston Rovers and Wakefield Trinity RLFC.
An interesting clash as the Robins return to Super League and hope to stay indefinitely, but face a tough test against last season’s dark horses in Wakefield.
In the build-up to such a clash, a selection of a combined team was chosen, find out who made the cut and may live up to expectation on the night!
Full-back – Scott Grix
This guy faced some stick late on last season, but has been reliable nonetheless for Wakefield throughout his tenure: it is Scott Grix!
Grix was an important figure in Wakefield’s surge last season, linking up well with half-backs Jacob Miller and Liam Finn throughout 2017.
He personally managed a total of nine tries in his 29 appearances plus 17 clean breaks, 52 tackle busts and 13 try assists.
So there was no doubting his skill and support play that you expect from a potent full-back and certainly one to watch in this clash as well as the season going forward.
