Castleford Tigers vs London Broncos (Saturday, 7:30 pm)
The Tigers fell narrow victims to the boot of Danny McGuire once again last week, whereas London were given a 58 point reality check by Salford.
The motivation for London is obvious, it’s survival time as they now sit outright bottom of the table once again, Castleford are still chasing the play-offs sitting two points off 5th.
The Tigers have produced two 40+ wins over the Broncos this season and while I expect Danny Ward’s side to put up a good fight, I think the Tigers will prevail.
Prediction: Castleford Tigers 36-18 London Broncos
Salford Red Devils vs Huddersfield Giants (Sunday, 3 pm)
I imagine the mood in these camps to be quite the opposite after last week’s results, Salford romped to a 58-28 point win over London while Huddersfield fell 44-0 to Leeds.
Both sides have registered comfortable wins over each other this season, while Salford edge the form battle with three wins from three, their last defeat? Against the Giants.
Simon Woolford will look towards the 28 points conceded last week as a positive for his side yet will need a better defensive effort than last week.
Prediction: Salford Red Devils 28-16 Huddersfield Giants.
Wakefield Trinity vs Hull F.C. (Sunday, 3pm)
Wakefield have added Morgan Escare to their ranks recently in a bid to salvage their season, if involved could the Frenchman inspire Trinity to their first win in four matches?
On the other side, Lee Radford’s side also need to bounce back following defeats to Warrington and Wigan, they still sit third in the table, but Wigan are closing in.
Arguably Chris Chester’s side have more to play for in this game, but going into the play-offs form is vital, I expect Radford to have drilled that into his side and for them to grab the win.
Prediction: Wakefield Trinity 12-28 Hull F.C.
