Harlequins v Bradford
Bradford must halt a run of 7 league and cup defeats if they are to get back into the top 8 and, at even money with Boylesports to win, a trip to the Stoop is just what they need. Bradford have at least put points on the board while Quins have been altogether a bit of a limp outfit of late. Add a mounting list of injuries to Quins’ woes and the 11/10 (Coral) for a home win seems less likely.
Hull KR v Leeds
Pity the team that get in front of Leeds as they begin their assault for the Grand Final. Leeds welcome back Rob Burrow after 2 months out and find themselves 4/11 fav with Sportingbet to win away at Hull KR. Wakefield did suffer at the hands of Hull KR last week but Leeds are a different level. The handicap about Leeds of -10 at 1/1 with Ladbrokes may tempt the greedier punter but it might be advised to steer clear of that and stick to the outright.
St Helens v Catalans
St Helens will be without first-choice half-back pairing Kyle Eastmond and Leon Pryce but it would take something short of a miracle for them to lose this one. At 1/14 (William Hill) there is little point in the outright but 888sport have a lenient -18 handicap on St Helens at 10/11. Well worth it.
Wigan v Salford
Wigan have done well to dominate the teams at the wrong end of the league and Salford certainly are up against it, 12/1 with Betfred to win away. Salford actually gave Wigan some problems in the reverse fixture but with returning players, Wigan can collect more points in the hunt for the regular season trophy. However, -24 on Wigan is very heavy and Stan James quote of +24 on Salford at 10/11 may be rewarding.

Wakefield v Hull
Hull are picking up points and are extremely wary of Leeds who are breathing down their necks, 1 place behind in the league for the coveted 4th spot. Wakefield are lacking in quality and 8/11 about the Hull away win with Skybet is fine.

Huddersfield v Crusaders
Huddersfield find themselves in the unusual position of having won only 1 of the last 4 games and will view Crusaders as the perfect remedy to their troubles. 1/10 (Victor Chandler) is pretty awful, especially considering Crusaders won away at Leeds 3 weeks ago, so maybe the handicap of -18 at 10/11 with Betfred about Huddersfield is about fair.
Warrington v Castleford
Castleford are on the march, 4 straight wins, and they can certainly put points on the board. Sportingbet’s 1/10 on Warrington is again very short and perhaps disrespectful to a Castleford side in full swing. +18 about Castleford at 10/11 with Stan James is very achievable as, while Warrington should win, it will be a lot closer than the odds suggest.
