Predicting the entire Super League table without a try being scored is no easy feat, but there is method behind the madness.

St Helens will retain the League Leaders’ Shield under the guidance of new coach Kristian Woolf but Wigan’s strong recruitment and improved form under Adrian Lam sees them finish a close second, with Hull FC and Warrington keeping pace for most of the season.

Catalans round off the play-offs, with the French side seemingly recruiting strongly which means Daryl Powell’s Castleford will narrowly miss out on a top-five finish.

Tony Smith has reshaped Hull KR’s squad after a difficult campaign in 2019 and they may surprise people this term.

Leeds and Salford won’t be happy should they finish as low as eighth and ninth respectively, but still need another star signing each to force their way up the table.

Newly promoted Toronto Wolfpack will show glimpses of their quality, but even with superstar Sonny Bill Williams in their squad may lack the experience required to mount a push for the play-offs.

Which leaves Wakefield Trinity and Huddersfield Giants to battle it out for the bottom two spots and, with Trinity recruiting better than the Giants, that could spell relegation for Simon Woolford’s side.

1. St Helens
2. Wigan Warriors
3. Hull FC
4. Warrington Wolves
5. Catalans Dragons
6. Castleford Tigers
7. Hull KR
8. Leeds Rhinos
9. Salford Red Devils
10. Toronto Wolfpack
11. Wakefield Trinity
12. Huddersfield Giants
