The Betfred Championship Roars Back to Life for Round 11

The Betfred Championship is back in action for Round 11, and the marquee matchup promises to be a tantalizing top-of-the-table clash between league leaders Wakefield Trinity and second-placed Widnes Vikings on Sunday.

Wakefield Trinity, still unbeaten in the Championship, will make the journey across the Pennines to face the Vikings at the DCBL Stadium. Buoyed by their emphatic Wembley triumph in the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final last weekend, Trinity will be eager to maintain their remarkable run. However, the Vikings, undefeated at home this season, will be looking to register back-to-back wins and close the gap at the summit.

The sides last met in 2019 for a Challenge Cup fixture, with their previous league encounter dating back to 2018 in Super League. Trinity hold the upper hand, having won the last six meetings against Widnes, but this will be their first modern-era clash in the second tier.

Saturday’s Action

Elsewhere, Saturday’s action sees Doncaster make their first trip to Toulouse since 2016. The French outfit are aiming for a fifth successive victory, while the Dons will be hoping to build on their gutsy draw against Whitehaven in Round 10 as they push for a Play-Off berth. Toulouse have won all five previous meetings between the two teams.

Sunday’s Matches

On Sunday, there’s plenty of drama unfolding in Cumbria, as Bradford travel to Whitehaven and Halifax make the journey to Barrow. Bradford haven’t lost away at Whitehaven since 1971, while Barrow and Halifax’s fixture showcased a series of intriguing encounters last season.

The action continues with a third-versus-fourth clash as Sheffield Eagles return home to face Featherstone Rovers, both teams looking to bounce back from recent defeats. Swinton Lions will host Batley Bulldogs in an exciting encounter, with the visitors aiming to make it three wins on the spin after a recent resurgence.

Finally, Dewsbury Rams play host to York Knights in a battle to climb further away from the bottom of the Championship table.
