Eddie Hemmings claims Super League stadium is ‘one of the toughest places to go’

The Challenge Cup quarter-finals begin today as the road to Wembley hots up.

Today Super League and World Champions St Helens journey over to Hull FC.

Eddie Hemmings believes there is no stopping Saints even though he noted that Hull FC is one of the toughest places in the league to go.

“I can’t see anyone stopping [St Helens] at the moment, the way their playing,” he said on The Last Tackle.

“The way Saints have suddenly started to play a bit, and I know they’re going up to Hull, it’s a tough old place to go, but haven’t I read that Hull have a few injury problems as well so they’re going to be a bit depleted. I can’t see beyond Saints at the minute.”

Meanwhile, Paul Sculthorpe believes the Saints will storm into the last four:

“I think if Saints turn in a performance of what they’re capable of, I don’t think Hull can live with them. On current form I just think Saints go into this full of confidence on the back of a great win against Wigan.

“We talk about your Welsby’s, your Lomax’s, I think all the Saints performances start on the back of such a good go forward, and I think the pack is on fire at the moment.

“Big Alex (Walmsley), Matty Lees, great to see Mata’utia back, Curtis Sironen for me is playing some outstanding football. I just think if they keep doing what they’re doing there’s nobody that can live with that.”
