The final week of the regular Betfred Super League season and all is still to play for. Four teams battle it out at the bottom, while play-off spots are still to be sorted. Let’s take a look at this week’s games…
Wigan Warriors vs Castleford Tigers (Thursday, 7:45 pm)
Wigan, looking to hang onto their second spot, come off the back of a strong win over the Catalans Dragons. Bevan French looks a game-changer, alongside a revitalised Zak Hardaker.
Castleford’s win over Hull FC last week gave them the advantage in the play-off push, Jake Trueman’s hat-trick the standout. He’ll need to recapture that form for Cas to grab the win.
Prediction: Wigan 26-14 Castleford Tigers
Salford Red Devils vs Hull Kingston Rovers (Friday, 7:45 pm)
Play-offs guaranteed it looks job done for Salford. However, their fans are expecting more and more. They have shown they can win tough in recent weeks, I think that will be the case again.
How things could have been different for KR. Yet, a late try has made this a must-win game. Out of the bottom sides, it’s the toughest game. It’s make or break time for many of the squad.
Prediction: Salford Red Devils 28-22 Hull KR
Huddersfield Giants vs Catalans Dragons (Friday, 7:45 pm)
Huddersfield come off the back of a tough loss to St. Helens and have just one win in their last five. Their last meeting with the Dragons was a close match, but they need to go one step further.
Since their win over Warrington, Catalans have tailed off. Safe from relegation, not pushing for play-offs, motivation seems to be lost as the off-field drama has hit the headlines.
Prediction: Huddersfield Giants 26-12 Catalans Dragons
