Wakefield Trinity v Leeds Rhinos
These West Yorkshire rivals are both pointless after three games and will be desperate to ignite their campaigns.
It might not be pretty or particularly inspiring, but Leeds should have enough class in their side for a Wakefield side who look set for a season of struggle.
Back the Rhinos to head home to Headingley with the win at 4/9 with Betfred.
Predicted score: Leeds to win by between 1-12 points at 9/5 with Paddy Power.
Hull Kingston Rovers v St Helens
The Robins picked up their first win last week after an impressive performance at home against Castleford.
But defending champions St Helens are a different proposition altogether and they should be too strong for Tony Smith’s men.
Back Kristian Woolf’s side to take the win at 1/5 with Bet 365.
Predicted score: St Helens to win by -6 on the handicap at 4/11 with Coral.
Warrington Wolves v Catalans Dragons
This is a heavyweight clash between two sides with genuine title aspirations.
Not since 1955 have Warrington been crowned champions while Catalans reached a maiden Grand Final last term but lost to St Helens.
The Wolves are building nicely under Daryl Powell so back them to edge a tight affair here at 3/10 with 888 Sport.
Predicted score: Warrington to win by between 1-6 points at 9/2 with Betfair.
Toulouse Olympique v Wigan Warriors
Toulouse have slumped to three straight losses since being promoted in last autumn’s Million Pound Game against Featherstone Rovers.
Wigan, meanwhile, have showed they mean business under new head coach Matty Peet by collecting maximum points in their first three outings of 2022.
Expect the Warriors to go to France and make it four from four this weekend at 1/16 with Sporting Index.
Predicted score: Wigan to win by -24 on the handicap at 1/1 with Betfred.
Huddersfield Giants v Salford Red Devils
This promises to be an interesting scrap between two sides who have made promising starts to the season.
Both teams have two wins from three and there is the added sub-plot of Giants boss Ian Watson facing the club he guided to two major finals in 2019 and 2020.
Salford are a dangerous outfit, though, and are worth backing to edge this one at 13/5 with Unibet.
Predicted score: Salford to win by between 1-12 points at 18/5 with Betfred.
Castleford Tigers v Hull FC
Lee Radford is already coming under scrutiny following his Castleford side’s winless start to the season.
Now he faces the club who announced they had sacked him live on Sky Sports after Hull FC’s home defeat to Warrington in March 2020.
This is the first time Radford will have faced his old team and the Black and Whites look a decent bet to take the points at 22/23 with SBK.
Predicted score: Hull FC to win by 1-12 points at 21/10 with Betfair.
