Sky Sports pundit predicts who will be 2024 Super League Champions

With the Super League season set to resume following the brief interlude for the Challenge Cup final, all eyes are now on the top end of the table. Round 14 sees Super League officially pass it’s mid-point and the table is beginning to take shape.

The nature of the loop fixtures means it is difficult to get an exact read on the table, as the teams have not all played each other yet. However, it is fairly safe to assume that the current top three will all be in contention for the top spot as the end of the season approaches. St Helens and Wigan are level on points at the top of the table, with Warrington and Hull KR close behind.

Catalans Dragons and Salford Red Devils are just about in contention, four points back from the top two. but with Wigan’s game in hand against Leigh Leopards now scheduled, we will soon hace a true picture at the top of the table.

Now, with the business end of the season rapidly approaching, one of Sky Sports’ pundits has offered their opinion on who will lift the title this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports‘ The Verdict programme, ex-St Helens and Leeds Rhinos forward, Kyle Amor, offered his opinion on who would lift the Super League trophy at the end of the season. Whilst Amor was part of one of the Saints’ most successful eras, he believes Wigan Warriors remain the the team to beat in Super League this season. Amor stated:

“I think it’s up to everyone to stop that happening. Historically teams have struggled after the heights of a Challenge Cup win. But this side, we saw what they did against Penrith Panthers and the enormity of that win. It didn’t lose anything for them. So I don’t think that they’re going to slip up at all.” Amor said.

Wigan travel to Castleford Tigers on Friday night and will be keen to avoid slipping up on the weekend after they lifted the Challenge Cup. St Helens, who travel to bottom side the London Broncos on Sunday, will be waiting in the wings, ready to capitalise on any Wigan slip, as they are expected to secure a comfortable win against the Broncos.

Stability the key for Wigan Warriors

According to Amor, stability is at the heart of all successful sides. He believes the fact that Matt Peet and his coaching staff are tied down to long-term deals will help them to achieve success on a regular basis in the coming years.

“I think when Wigan Warriors perform at their absolute best, I don’t think anybody in this competition for the next two seasons can land the glove on them. I really do. I think the squad, the depth that they’ve got, the quality that they’ve got and the key players have all got signed on long-term deals.

“Added to that, Matty Peet, Sean O’Loughlin, Tommy Leuluai, that coaching group, they’re all a long-term deals too. I think it’s for everybody else to raise their game and catch the Wigan Warriors.

“You talked about the St Helens, the dominance that they had, they had it for a number of years. Credit Wigan, they’ve got all four trophies, that’s something that their neighbours over the hill didn’t get to do. But the question for Wigan is, can they sustain this period and can they extend that and match the likes of St Helens with years of titles ahead of them.”
