Castleford Tigers vs Leeds Rhinos (Thu, 2000 GMT) 

After successive defeats to St Helens in the league and the cup, Leeds Rhinos will be hoping to get back to winning ways against Castleford Tigers this Thursday.

Rhinos have had a mixed start to their 2024 campaign, but they have fared better than their West Yorkshire rivals Castleford who are yet to win their first league game this season.

The Tigers did win their first game last week, but it was against Championship side Batley Bulldogs in the Challenge Cup.

Based on recent form, Leeds are the favourites to come out on top in this clash.

TIP: Leeds Rhinos to win

 

Hull KR vs Hull FC (Fri, 1230 GMT)

Hull FC’s season has been one to forget so far with a slim victory over London Broncos in the league being their only positive highlight.

A 50-6 loss to Huddersfield Giants last week saw them exit the cup and they now face their rivals Hull KR in the league, who they lost 22-0 to in the season opener.

Rovers have had an easier time with three league wins out of five and progressing to the quarter-finals of the cup, beating Salford Red Devils 40-0.

Anything can happen in derbies, but it is unlikely that Hull FC will come out on top this time around.

TIP: Hull KR to win

 

St Helens vs Wigan Warriors (Fri, 1500 GMT) 

St Helens and Wigan go head-to-head this week as the Warriors remain unbeaten this year following their cup victory over Sheffield Eagles.

Wigan are looking to extend their winning run of 15 consecutive victories in the Super League to 16 but St Helens have only lost once this season.

The Saints also progressed in the cup after beating Leeds Rhinos and they should provide a tough challenge for Wigan.

We expect it will be a close game with their being a small winning margin.

TIP: Winning margin 1-12 points 

 

Warrington Wolves vs Catalans Dragons (Sat, 1500 GMT) 

Warrington Wolves are in excellent form after successive victories over London Broncos in the league and the cup.

Wire have won their last five games, but their last defeat came in their season opener to this week’s opponents Catalans Dragons.

The Dragons have also been in good form only losing to Leeds in the league so far this season.

It will be another close contest this week as both sides are in decent form.

TIP: Winning margin 1-12 points 

 

Salford vs Leigh Leopards (Sat, 1730 GMT) 

 Leigh Leopards did not make a great start to the season after three defeats in the league, but they have improved recently. 

The Leopards beat struggling side Hull FC in the league before progressing in the cup against Championship side Featherstone Rovers.

Salford Red Devils had made a good start to the league campaign with three wins out of four, including a famous victory over St Helens.

Although, they have lost their last two games as they lost to Wigan in the league and Hull KR in the cup. We still expect them to bounce back against Leigh this week. 

TIP: Salford to win 

 

London Broncos vs Huddersfield Giants (Sun, 1500 GMT) 

London continue their search for a first win of the season after they exited the cup with their sixth defeat in a row in all competitions.

Huddersfield Giants have picked up points where they needed to, beating struggling sides Castleford and Leigh, despite having to play both Wigan and St Helens.

The Giants also progressed in the cup thumping Hull FC 50-6 to earn them a quarter-final place.

Another defeat is expected for London as they have already conceded over 200 points in the league so far. 

TIP: Huddersfield Giants to win
