Rugby League: Super League Predictor Round Three - February 24-26


Leeds Rhinos v Catalans Dragons

After opening their campaign with successive defeats, Leeds need to get their season up and running at the third attempt.

But their recent record against Catalans is not good and this is a Dragons side who narrowly lost in last season’s Grand Final.

The Rhinos are beset by injury and suspension problems, so back Steve McNamara’s side to win at 21/20 with Mansion Bet.

Predicted score: Catalans to win between 1-12 points (23/10 with Betfred)

Wigan Warriors v Huddersfield Giants

An intriguing battle between two teams with 100% records after two rounds.

Wigan have dismantled Hull Kingston Rovers and Leeds Rhinos in the opening fortnight of the season and you have to fancy them to see off Huddersfield.

The Giants will head to the DW Stadium full of confidence, but with home advantage, back the Warriors to win at 2/9 with Betfair.

Predicted score: Wigan to win by -4 on the handicap (3/10 with Coral)

Hull Kingston Rovers v Castleford Tigers

Two pointless sides after the first two rounds and both head coaches will be desperate to get off the mark.

Hull KR were Super League’s big improvers last term, reaching a maiden play-off semi-final, but have been sluggish in their first two games this year.

Yet with a raucous home crowd behind them, back to win at 5/6 with bet365 and pile more misery on the Tigers, coached by boyhood Robins fan and ex-Hull FC boss Lee Radford.

Predicted score: Hull KR to win on a -3.5 handicap at 21/20 with 888 Sport

St Helens v Wakefield Trinity

Saints have scored 12 tries in their opening two victories (six in each game) and proved that it will take a special team to stop them winning a record fourth consecutive Super League title.

Wakefield have lost their first two matches and look set for a season of struggle.

Of all the games in this week’s round of fixtures, this is the easiest one to call, so back St Helens to win at 1/14 with BetVictor.

Predicted score: St Helens to win by +13 points at 3/10 with Betfair.

"Clubs can desire them all they want, but they're not going anywhere."

Hull FC v Salford Red Devils

Salford could emerge as the surprise package of 2022, much like Hull KR did last term, after opening wins over Castleford and Toulouse.

There is much to admire in Paul Rowley’s coaching style and he is trying to keep his team’s early-season form under the radar.

But that will not be easy if they go to winless Hull FC and make it three from three, which you can back at a very tempting 7/4 with Unibet. 

Predicted score: Salford to win with a +4 handicap at 11/10 with Betfair.

Toulouse v Warrington Wolves

It already feels like Toulouse are doomed to be relegated after heavy opening defeats against Huddersfield and Toulouse.

Sylvain Houles’ side have endured a traumatic couple of months with key players leaving due to their refusal to get jabbed and a failure to make sufficient quality signings.

Title-chasing Warrington, full of self-belief after two wins, should go to France and win comfortably. 

Predicted score: Warrington to win by +13 points at 1/6 with Betfair.
