Castleford Tigers vs Hull FC (Fri, 2000 BST)

To say Hull FC are in dire straits would be an almighty understatement. The Super League giants are level on points with bottom-of-the-table London Broncos after losing to the minnows a fortnight ago.

Castleford will fancy their chances considering they’re at home and are currently in half-decent form.

You can take that last bit quite literally, with the Tigers putting on a superb first-half display against St Helens before crumbling after the break in their latest outing.

Despite this, Castleford are a lot less useless than Hull FC and we’re backing them to get two massive points on the board.

TIP: Castleford Tigers to win


Huddersfield Giants vs Leigh Leopards (Fri, 2000 BST)

If you look up the word inconsistent in the dictionary, we’re pretty sure it comes up with a picture of the Huddersfield Giants.

The West Yorkshire side went from winning five-straight matches to losing four in a row and bowing out of the Challenge Cup.

Leigh, on the other hand, are unbeaten in three and we’re backing Adrian Lam’s men to continue their recent upturn in form at the John Smith’s Stadium.

TIP: Leigh Leopards to win


St Helens vs Leeds Rhinos (Fri, 2000 BST)

In the world of great sporting fixtures, St Helens against Leeds Rhinos is right up there.

Saints have certainly enjoyed playing Leeds in recent years, winning 16 of the last 17 meetings against the Rhinos... no, we're not making that up!

Both teams are in mixed form, but with St Helens boasting a strong home record – five wins from seven – we’re backing the hosts to win a narrow encounter.

TIP: St Helens to win by 1-12 points


Catalans Dragons vs Warrington Wolves (Sat, 1730 BST)

Warrington Wolves are flying… but how many times have we heard that before.

Sam Burgess is cooking up something special with his side currently sitting level on points with league leaders Wigan.

However, Catalans have already beaten Wire twice this season and a hat-trick could be on the cards considering the Perpignan outfit are notoriously tough to beat at home.

The Dragons have won all seven Super League games at home this season and have conceded just six points across the last 160 minutes.

This will be a close one, but we’re going with the Dragons to win by a slender margin.

TIP: Catalans Dragons to win by 1-12 points


London Broncos vs Hull KR (Sun, 1500 BST)

London picked up their first win of the season a fortnight ago with a spectacular 34-18 victory over Hull FC.

Doing the same against Hull KR would require a monumental effort, considering how good Rovers have been this season.

Saying that, KR did endure a slight hiccup in the Challenge Cup over the weekend and a rested Broncos side could get some points on the board.

Still, it won’t be enough to topple the play-off contenders.

TIP: Hull KR -18 Handicap


Salford Red Devils vs Wigan Warriors (Sun, 1500 BST)

Hull KR, St Helens, Warrington Wolves – those are just some of the teams on Salford’s hit list this season.

While the Red Devils have exceeded expectations, Wigan should have too much fire-power in Sunday’s encounter.

The Warriors beat Salford earlier in the season and we’re backing them to do so again – winning both halves in the process.

TIP: Double Result Wigan Warriors/Wigan Warriors
