It’s been going pretty well for the last few weeks. Can I keep it going? For some reason I’m not so confident this week.
St Helens beat Wakefield Trinity Wildcats by 22
I find it hard to believe that last week’s game was anything other than a crushing blow to Wakey, added to which it seems that St Helens are the best team in the country.
Hull FC beat Celtic Crusaders by 14
Although if there was a team whom I could see the Crusaders somehow scraping an away victory against…
Castleford Tigers beat Salford City Reds by 6
Only because the Tigers need it more (if the Reds hadn’t started so poorly, this could’ve been a playoff eliminator).
Leeds Rhinos beat Hull KR by 16
I still think Leeds are getting back into form, although they’ll need to do better than last week against a Hull KR side hoping to prove that they’re out of a rut.
Catalan Dragons beat Harlequins by 12
Ah, that well-known local feud continues…
Warrington Wolves beat Huddersfield Giants by 2
This would be my upset pick for the weekend. I just think the Wolves will want to prove a point after last week’s disappointment and the Giants are surprisingly vulnerable at home.
Wigan Warriors beat Bradford Bulls by 14
Because Wigan a) need it more and b) are playing better at the minute.
