Super League Preview – Super 8s Round 2

Super League leaders Castleford Tigers will be looking to bounce back from defeat last week as they look to seal the League Leaders Shield.

The Tigers suffered their first home defeat of the season to St Helens, but they will look to bounce back to winning ways as they travel to Salford Red Devils – who dropped out of the all important top-four last week, after they lost to Hull FC.

St Helens win at Castleford meant they moved into fourth and they will move into third if they beat Hull this week.

Second placed Leeds are looking for top-four qualification but they will look to keep up their good form at Wakefield.

The final game is eighth v seventh as Wigan take on Huddersfield, with both looking highly unlikely to be troubling the top-four.
