Huddersfield v Hull KR
Huddersfield will be keen to get more points on the board as they make a late and outside charge for the top 4. Huddersfield name an unchanged side to the one who beat Hull last week and Giants can be backed at a pretty thin 1/4 with 888sport. Hull KR’s 2 recent wins have been over the bottom 2 sides and you can expect them to be back on losing form here, the -12 about Huddersfield at 10/11 with Boylesports should be fine.
Hull v Catalans Dragons
Hull’s 4 game winning streak came to an end last week, as did Catalan’s 9 game losing streak. But don’t get excited about the away win and you can either take the 2/7 at Stan James or the -10 about Hull at 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
St Helens v Salford
St Helens are missing winger Meli but will surely be pumped after a narrow win away at Wigan. Salford actually won the reverse fixture 5 weeks ago but that does nothing to stop Betdaq putting 1/11 about St Helens. Paddy Power’s +22 on Salford at 10/11 may be the ticket though, St Helen’s aren’t scoring as freely as they have been.

Harlequins v Wigan
There will be no vuvuzelas at Quins this weekend as the London club have banned them. They will hope the lack of distraction can help them achieve the double over a high flying Wigan side that will be anxious to reverse the loss last weekend. Wigan are 1/4 at Sportingbet to do just that but don’t under-estimate the Quins’ scoring power at home; the +14 about Harlequins at 10/11 with Victor Chandler is therefore tempting.

Crusaders v Wakefield
Celtic Crusaders are priced up at 1/2 favs by Stan James in a bottom half of the table clash with both teams on the same points. Wakefield boast a miserable 1 win in 9 run whilst Crusaders are on something of a high after an away win at Leeds last week. Perhaps even Skybet’s -6 at 10/11 on Crusaders should be considered.
Warrington v Leeds
Sunday’s big TV game has title chasers Warrington try to gain revenge for a loss away to Leeds earlier in the season and they are 4/9 with Stan James to do so. Leeds, the playoff and Grand Final specialists, need to erase last week’s home loss out of their memories but at 9/4 (Betfred), the bookies aren’t confident. Warrington have been really solid in defensive positions this season and it may be advisable to take the slightly smaller handicap of -6 on Warrington at 4/5 with William Hill.
