Justin Holbrook says Wakefield are one of the most balanced teams in Super League.
Saints lock horns with Trinity this Friday at the Totally Wicked Stadium as they aim to keep up their six-point lead at the top of the table
“Wakefield are a really good side,” he said. “They beat us earlier in the season and over the last five or six weeks have been great. They nearly beat Warrington, then easily beat Wigan and had a good victory over the weekend.
“They have kept the same side for the last five or six weeks too. They are a dangerous, well balanced side.
“They have a big pack of forwards, lightning quick outside backs and Jacob Millar has a good kicking game.
“We know we have to make sure we play well to take home the points.”
Saints welcomed back their England contingent on Monday and Holbrook says all are in contention for this Friday’s match.
“They all came through it well which is pleasing,” he continued. “It was a big trip for them and I was really proud of how they played. It was good to see England have a dominant win and the boys who play for us have such a big part in that.
“They came back into training on Monday and will be ready to go on Friday.
“I was disappointed that Luke Thompson didn’t play but it was a great experience for him. He was really upbeat about it all and appreciated being part of it for a week.
“He was happy to be a part of the set-up and moving forward under Wayne Bennett. He hasn’t come back disappointed or wanting to prove a point, it is a progression for him.
“Tommy Mak has been great all year and did exactly the same for England. It came at an important time too as the game progressed. He made a difference and had an impact. I was really pleased for him.”
