Verdict

Leigh Leopards have been the surprise package of the Super League season and they're not done yet.
Adrian Lam's side enjoyed a nine-match winning run across all competitions before enduring a 38-30 defeat away against league leaders Catalans Dragons.

Despite the result, Leigh remain fourth in the table and are still considered serious play-off contenders.

Hull KR, on the other hand, picked up a 28-12 victory over Wakefield Trinity last weekend to mark the end of a four-match losing run in the Super League.
Willie Peters and his men are currently seventh in the standings and find themselves two points adrift of fourth-placed Leigh.
Hull KR would make a serious statement of intent with victory away at the Leigh Sports Village, though that is far easier said than done.
The Robins haven't won away from home since their trip to Castleford in late April.
What's more, it was Leigh who got the better of Hull when the two met earlier in the season.
While a tight contest is on the cards, our recommendation is to back the Leopards to prevail. Victory by a 1-12 point margin is our main tip for Friday's televised Super League clash.
