Super League Super 8s Preview – Round 6

The battle for the final two places in the Grand Final play-offs is heating up with just three rounds left.

Castleford Tigers have already secured top spot and Leeds are confirmed in second following their win over Hull FC last week, but the last two places are up for grabs.

Hull remain in third, just a point ahead of Wakefield and two ahead of Wigan in fifth. And fresh from their Challenge Cup win over The Warriors, the two face off again – this time at the KCOM Stadium – as their battle to make it to the Grand Final continues. Victory for Wigan would take them above Hull.

Wakefield have the chance to move into third as they entertain sixth-placed St Helens – who can still make the play-offs but are approaching must win territory.

Salford in seventh can still make it, but that looks an increasingly unlikely prospect although they will be hopeful of beating Huddersfield – who are all but out of the reckoning.
