Super League Preview - The Gambling Times

Super League Preview

The latest round of Super League matches kick-off on Thursday with one of the biggest fixtures you can get as St Helens host rivals Wigan.

St Helens come into the game off the back of a brilliant 45-0 win over Hull at the Magic Weekend and confidence will be high coming up against Wigan – who were held to a draw by Warrington.

Leaders Castleford host bottom of the table Widnes in what looks a very big task for Dennis Betts’s men.

The real surprise package of the season Salford Red Devils, in second place, take on coach-less Catalans Dragons – who axed Laurent Frayssinous following their disappointing performance at Magic Weekend.

Third place Hull are looking to bounce back from their shock loss to Saints as they host second from bottom Leigh.

Leeds are looking to keep up the pressure on the top-three as they take on Warrington – who were buoyed by their efforts at Magic Weekend.

Fifth-placed Wakefield Trinity entertain Huddersfield Gaints looking to continue their excellent campaign.
