Match Tags : St Helens vs Castleford
When : 7th August 2022
kick-off : 17:30
Predictions :
Castleford Tigers have been nilled on their previous two visits to the St Helens but they were beaten just 10-0 and 4-0 on those occasions and can remain competitive once again when they take on the Betfred Super League champions. These two last met in last month’s Betfred Challenge Cup final at Wembley with Saints running out 26-12 winners but the Tigers were in contention for much of that game. St Helens’ extra quality told in the end and they are likely to be too strong once again having seen off league leaders Catalans in decent fashion last week.
