Keith Senior’s Super League Predictions: Round 28

Hull FC vs Castleford Tigers (Thursday 7.45pm)

Hull were really disappointing at home to Huddersfield last time out and another defeat here will see them drop out of the five with one week to go. Castleford were unlucky at Saints, they just need to be more clinical and ruthless in attack and if they do that here, I fancy them to turn over the Black and Whites.

Keith says: Castleford by 12

Hull KR vs London Broncos (Friday 7.45pm)

This is the biggest game of the season for any team in Super League this year as London look to defy the odds again. The pressure will be on Hull KR in front of their home fans but having Danny McGuire in their team is hugely important, and as was the case in Catalans last week, his big-game experience will guide the Robins to safety… Just.

Keith says: Hull KR by 4

Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Red Devils (Friday 7.45pm)

There will have been a huge sigh of relief at Leeds following their win in London and they can relax now. Jackson Hastings and former Rhinos man Tui Lolohea have steered Salford to fourth and victory here will guarantee them a playoff spot. I think that added motivation will see the Red Devils pick up a rare win at Headingley.

Keith says: Salford by 8

St Helens vs Huddersfield Giants (Friday 7.45pm)

Saints got back to winning ways last week and I would still make them favourites for the Grand Final, despite their Wembley woes. Huddersfield are still not safe but their points difference gives them breathing space over bottom-placed London. It’s a bigger game for the Giants but I think Saints will win with ease.

Keith says: Saints by 20

Warrington Wolves vs Wakefield Trinity (Friday 7.45pm)

It was tough for Warrington to come straight back to league action five days after Wembley but I thought they did okay at Salford. Wakefield are still in serious trouble and will be hoping Hull KR beat London, knowing they have a better points difference than the Broncos ahead of facing them next week. This should be a tough battle, but the Wolves will edge it.

Keith says: Warrington by 10

Wigan Warriors vs Catalans Dragons (Friday 7.45pm)

Wigan are now second favourites to retain their Super League crown and with good reason, they just can’t stop winning. A rare win at Belle Vue has almost certainly guaranteed their playoff spot and they now face the beleaguered Dragons. There is a lot of unrest at Catalans with players leaving and a heavy defeat at Wigan certainly won’t help.

Keith says: Wigan by 18
