Super League: St Helens, Wigan, Warrington and Castleford all in action
The Super League campaign is well underway, and there is only one unbeaten team remaining. No-one can accuse St Helens of not being true to form. Last season’s Grand Final winners are two points clear at the top of the standings and are on top of their game right now.
Hull KR v St Helens
The Saints travel to Humberside in search of another two points, and are odds-on at 4/11 with Coral for victory. Keiron Cunningham’s side ran out impressive 32-24 winners over Warrington last time out and had five different scorers. Unsurprisingly, Tommy Makinson recorded four points, and is 6/1 cross first. Jordan Turner, who leads the club’s charts with five, is 11/1 in the same market.
Hull KR, meanwhile, narrowly lost to Widnes 20-16 last time out, with top scorer Ken Sio (seven tries) breaching the in-goal area. He is 9/1 to get the first try. Ben Cockayne, is also great value at 9/4 in the anytime market.
Wigan v Wakefield
Struggling Warriors entertain the Wildcats, who, bottom of the table, will be up for a scrap themselves. Shaun Wane’s side are heavily odds-on at 1/50 to record victory. Joel Tomkins is the club’s top scorer and, as a result, is 12/1 to get the first try, while Joe Burgess is available at 5/1 in the same market. For the visitors, Chris Riley is an obvious threat, and is decent value at 13/8 to breach the in-goal area anytime.
Warrington v Huddersfield
Tony Smith’s men will be looking to bounce back from a defeat to the Saints last week, and are odds-on at 4/11 to record a win against the Giants. Last season’s top Super League tryscorer, Joel Monaghan, is 6/1 to put the first four points on the board, while Scott Grix is 13/8 anytime, having got four tries for the Giants so far this season.
Castleford v Hull FC
Two teams in the bottom four, do battle at the Jungle as the Tigers welcome the Airlie Birds. Castleford are odds-on at 4/9 to get a favourable result, and having beaten Wigan they went on to take two points off Salford last time out.
Super League’s leading tryscorer, Justin Carney is 6/1 breach the whitewash first, while Hull’s best hope, Jamie Shaul is 10/1 in the same market.
