Super League Preview

Leaders Castleford Tigers look to maintain their brilliant run of form this weekend, but they are the last in action in this round.

Bottom-of-the-table Leigh host sixth-placed Wigan, knowing victory will move them back above Widnes – who moved off the foot last week after victory over Catalans.

The Vikings look for back-to-back wins on Friday, as they face a tricky looking trip to St Helens – who only narrowly lost to leaders Castleford last week.

Also on Friday, second place Salford are looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at home to Wakefield last week as they host Hull – who are just three points off them back in fourth.

On Saturday and it is 8th v 9th with Catalans looking to hang on to the final play-off spot as Huddersfield make the journey to the south of France.

Perhaps the game of the weekend takes place at Belle Vue as the real surprise package of the season Wakefield, in fourth, entertain third place Leeds – who they are level on points with.

The final game of the weekend sees Warrington somehow look to try and find some form at Castleford.
