Jon Wilkin backs shock Super League side to reach Grand Final

Super League pundit Jon Wilkin claims there are major "alarm bells" at Salford Red Devils.

Leeds Rhinos have been inconsistent all season.

After a shock defeat against Wakefield Trinity, they ploughed through Huddersfield Giants last week.

“The performance they put out against Wakefield Trinity two weeks ago was regarded by fans as one of the worst of the Super League era,” Bill Arthur said on Sky Sports.

“Some of the stick they received on social media, you might have expected Headingley to be half empty but they have turned up tonight the fans and players.

“They look like a different side.”

Jon Wilkin then challenged Leeds to replicate the win over Huddersfield.

He said if they could, they could reach the Grand Final:

“The challenge, as I said, is to do this next week. To do it when people are maybe not expecting it, when the atmosphere isn’t as big as this.

“Champion teams have a habit of turning up when you least expect them to and keep turning up and Leeds that has been their issue, consistently turning up.

“They have an opportunity to go on a run and get to the big dance again.”
