Hull FC vs Wigan Warriors (Sat, 5:00pm)
Hull kept pace with the top four with a blistering demolition of Salford last weekend, which kept up their unbeaten home record this season.
If they are to make the top four, the side likely to miss out at the moment could be Wigan. It’s fair to say the last few weeks have not treated them well.
They’re a good enough side to get out of their rut eventually, but having failed to do so against Wakefield I certainly don’t see them doing it here.
Prediction: Hull FC 34-16 Wigan Warriors
Wakefield Trinity vs Warrington Wolves (Sun, 3:00pm)
Wakefield seem to have rediscovered some form at a very handy time, with the win over Wigan keeping them four points above that dotted line and even lifting them above Leeds.
Good home form remains crucial for them, and it had been for Warrington as well until defeat against Castleford last Friday.
Wakefield will put in a strong shift on home soil but I don’t think the Wolves will be down for long and they should have enough quality for the win.
Prediction: Wakefield Trinity 28-36 Warrington Wolves
Castleford Tigers vs Hull Kingston Rovers (Sun, 3:30pm)
Castleford were certainly the team of the week, showing an incredible spirit to conquer Warrington against the odds.
They will be strong favourites against a side edging closer to another year in the Qualifiers, having lost six of their last seven.
The Tigers won 42-14 when the sides met just two weeks ago at Craven Park, and it’s hard to see enough improvement from then for them to claim anything from the Jungle.
Prediction: Castleford Tigers 36-10 Hull Kingston Rovers
