Kyle Amor predicts huge shock result in Super League this weekend

Round 18 of the Betfred Super League was always going to be a big round of fixtures with Warrington Wolves and St Helens locking horns, Leeds Rhinos heading over to Salford Red Devils in a big game in the play-off race whilst Wakefield Trinity and Castleford took on Wigan Warriors and Leigh Leopards respectively in crucial games in the relegation battle.

But undoubtedly the big game this weekend is the Hull derby as Hull KR host Hull FC.

The last time the two met, Hull KR stunned their rivals with a thumping win away.

However, Hull FC are in a much stronger position now than they were over Easter and Tony Smith is ready for his return to Craven Park.

Ahead of this game, Kyle Amor has had his say on who will win and he is backing Hull FC to pull off the upset:

“I don’t think it’ll be that easy this time round. I think Hull FC have got into a decent groove now at the moment.

“Even though they got beat at Catalans 28-18, I still think there’s something bubbling away at Hull. Whether they’ve got time to rescue it and make a real charge for those top spots I don’t know; but they are a team that seem to have got it right now and they have some quality players playing incredibly well.

“I think my old mate Adam Swift; he’s been sensational, talk about wingers that we mentioned earlier he’s one of them that’s right up there he’s in great form and I just think there’s a lot of good stuff happening at Hull, so I think Hull FC win this one.”

Meanwhile, Eddie Hemming believes Mikey Lewis will be key.

He said on The Last Tackle podcast: “Mikey Lewis, he’s another one of those players isn’t he. I love watching him. You never know what you’re going to get from him. He could be the key for Hull KR.

“Hull will be smarting after that Good Friday won’t they. You don’t expect to take on your rivals at your own mitten and get done by 40 points so Hull will want revenge; but knowing Tony Smith, he won’t even be talking about Good Friday, or bad Friday for the Black and Whites, he is only going to be concentrating on this visit.”
