Keith Senior’s Super League Predictions: Round 7

Wakefield Trinity vs Warrington Wolves (Thursday 7.45pm)

Wakefield were terrific against Hull last week but they face a big test against Warrington tonight in what should be a great game. Barring one blip in the South of France, the Wolves have been faultless this season and Blake Austin is a quality player. I think with him pulling the strings they will have too much for Wakefield.

Keith says: Warrington by 14

Castleford Tigers vs St Helens (Friday 7.45pm)

This should be another excellent game between third and first as it currently stands. I think St Helens and Warrington are on a similar level and Cas were unable to cope with the Wolves a couple of weeks ago. The Tigers are at home on this occasion but their recent record at the Jungle against Saints isn’t great and I think that will continue.

Keith says: St Helens by 10

Huddersfield Giants vs Hull KR (Friday 7.45pm)

Two injury-hit teams here with the Giants only able to name an 18-man squad yesterday. It was a tough defeat for them last Thursday but at half-time they were well in the game against Saints. Hull KR should have beaten Catalans on Sunday and Tim Sheens will want a response. This will be tight but I fancy the hosts to edge it.

Keith says: Huddersfield by 8

Catalans Dragons vs Leeds Rhinos (Saturday 5pm)

After the 46-0 hammering by Salford, Steve McNamara will have been relieved to see his team pinch the points at Craven Park. As for Leeds, things seem to be getting worse and the defeat at home to London has alarm bells ringing. Going to the South of France is not easy and Leeds are not playing well enough to win there in my opinion.

Keith says: Catalans by 7

Salford Red Devils vs Wigan Warriors (Sunday 3pm)

There is a lot of uncertainty around Wigan at the moment with the ongoing Shaun Edwards saga. With only one win so far the Warriors travel to face a Salford team who, apart from a heavy home defeat to Leeds, look like they could challenge for the top five. In saying that Wigan still have quality players and you feel they have to come good soon, so I think they might edge this one.

Keith says: Wigan by 4

London Broncos vs Hull FC (Sunday 3pm)

What can you say about the Broncos? Some said they wouldn’t win a game this season and here they are with three wins from the opening seven rounds. Danny Ward is working miracles in the capital and this week they welcome Hull. The black and whites have improved since Gareth Ellis came back, although they had a major off night against Wakefield last week. Despite the long trip and the Broncos resilience, I think it will be a tight Hull win.

Keith says: Hull by 8
