Keith Senior’s Super League Predictions: Round 13

London Broncos vs Salford Red Devils (Saturday 3pm)

Five defeats in a row for the Broncos and the Easter period has seen them slip to the foot of the table. Salford produced a remarkable display at Warrington on Good Friday but were unable to back that up against Wigan. A crucial game for both, but with conditions likely to be dry you have to fancy Rob Lui and Jackson Hastings to work their magic.

Keith says: Salford by 4

Wigan Warriors vs Castleford Tigers (Saturday 5.15pm)

A second win at Salford this season was a welcome boost for Adrian Lam as Wigan try to make up ground on the rest. One of the teams they are trying to catch is Castleford who had a tough evening in Perpignan on Easter Monday. Only a few weeks since these teams last played and Castleford came back to stun Wigan, but I don’t see a repeat here.

Keith says: Wigan by 12

Hull FC vs Wakefield Trinity (Sunday 3pm)

It was a mixed Easter for Hull who hammered their city rivals before taking a beating themselves at Saints. Despite having four of their best players out injured, Wakefield continue to defy the odds. Now up to third in the league, Chris Chester is doing a remarkable job and I think their style of rugby will be too much for Hull to handle.

Keith says: Wakefield by 8

Leeds Rhinos vs Hull KR (Sunday 3pm)

Another two teams who only played each other recently and Rovers will aim to repeat their dominant win of three weeks ago. After beating Huddersfield, Leeds were unable to topple Wakefield and are still languishing near the bottom. Hull KR are only a place above them and were heavily beaten by Hull and Warrington over Easter. I think Leeds will just edge this game.

Keith says: Leeds by 2

St Helens vs Catalans Dragons (Sunday 3pm)

Saints have only lost one game this season, against Catalans, so they will be up for this one. Two dominant displays against Wigan and Hull sees Saints clear at the top and they are showing no signs of letting up. The Dragons themselves had a great Easter period with wins over London and Castleford, but winning at Saints will be a bit too much to ask I think.

Keith says: St Helens by 24

Warrington Wolves vs Huddersfield Giants (Sunday 3pm)

There will be a different mindset about the Wolves for this one after they were beaten convincingly by Salford in their last home game. They did respond on Monday with a big win over Hull KR but the Giants might fancy their chances. Huddersfield were poor over Easter and I think they might be on the end of another Blake Austin masterclass this Sunday.

Keith says: Warrington by 18
