Can improving Catalans win at Wire ?

Daryl Clark playing for Warrington Wolves in the Super League.

Thursday night Rugby comes from the HJ where Warrington will be looking to put last week’s last gasp defeat at Warrington behind them with a win against improving Catalans.

The Dragons impressive win at Wakefield last week was their 6th in 7 as they move away from the bottom 4 as we head to the split in 3 weeks.
It’ll be tough at Warrington though as the Wolves have won 5 of their last 6 at home as they look to secure a top 4 spot and the extra home game in the Super 8.

No surprise to see the Wire as short as 2/5 to win this, you can get around 4/5 on the Half Time Full Time, but with the form Catalans are in you’d have to think they can stay inside the 8 point handicap.

It could be an entertaining close affair and you certainly can’t rule out the away win at around 5/2 but maybe home advantage may just see Warrington home by 1-5 points.

Charnley scored a late try at Wigan to tie the game and it’s no surprise to see him head 1st try lists at around 8/1, maybe a bit more value in Tom Lineham at 10/1.

Massive game for the Champions on Friday Night Rugby as they entertain Wakefield, a win is vital if Leeds are to avoid the middle 8 and they could be taking on Trinity at just the right time.

Wakefield have now lost 3 of their last 4 fixtures since an impressive win over Wigan last month and whilst they look safe from the bottom 4 you do feel they have too much to do to make the top 4.

Having said that I’m sure Wakefield would love to put one over the Champions but I think Leeds will just get a crucial win. Especially now club talisman Kevin Sinfield has returned as director of Rugby, ensuring a great atmosphere at the new look Headingley .

The Rhinos are around 4/9 to win this with Trinity around 15/8 , Leeds concede around a 6 point start on the handicap but the best value I’ve seen here is Wakefield 8/11 getting a 10 point start with Skybet .

Better than the handicap though could be going over the total points line ,provided it’s dry , there tends to be alot of points when these 2 play and I think Friday should be no different .

Ryan Hall heads 1st try lists at 10/1 , I’d possibly look to Ash Handley at 14/1 m Wakefield fans will surely look to Tom Johnstone at 14/1.

Best value bet of the game though could be Carl Ablett for a try anytime at 5/1 .

Back next week , as always please gamble responsibly .
