It’s semi-final time in the Rugby League’s Challenge Cup and in the first showdown, it’s arch rivals Wigan and St Helens that go head-to-head.
The Warriors, Super League leaders, are odds-on at 1/2 courtesy of Boylesports to book their place in the Wembley final but Saints are currently in a rich vein of form and bet365’s 9/5 outsiders should not be written off.
In what should be a close affair on neutral territory, Royce Simmons’ men are certainly the pick in the handicaps, where hand them a six-point start at even money and also catching the eye is Skybet’s 3/1 for Saints to lead at the end of each half.
Elsewhere, a drop goal isn’t out of the question given the potential for a tight encounter and Betfred post 17/4 against either side grabbing a one-pointer. Jamie Foster meanwhile, has been in tremendous form for St Helens this year, scoring an impressive 20 tries and the young winger is 10/1 (Totesport) to cross the whitewash first at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
