Super League clash set for amazing sell out crowd

This weekend we will see some huge games as Warrington Wolves and Hull FC collide, Wigan Warriors head over to France and Leeds Rhinos journey across to take on Huddersfield Giants in front what is expected to be a record crowd for the Giants in Super League.

But when it comes to assessing the game of the round it is hard to get away from the match in France as Wigan take on league leaders Catalans Dragons in Perpignan in a clash between first and second.

Not only the biggest game of the round, it could be one of the biggest games of the season with Catalans expecting a sell out crowd and thus being forced to put up temporary stands to satisfy demand and there were only 200 tickets left available on Thursday night.

It is a massive game between two clubs who have a lot of connections such as Sam Tomkins and Michael McIlorum who has dodged a ban ahead the game.

Could the game be the Grand Final in waiting?

Speaking on The Last Tackle, Kyle Amor has had his say: “That’s been perfect for Catalan. If I’m a Catalan player sitting in that room, I’m going, this is gold because nobody’s talking about us, nobody’s putting expectation on us.

“There’s really no pressure. I just think that their playing roster is fantastic and look, again, I think they go on, I don’t think they dropped in form and I think they win the League Leaders Shield, but the playoffs, there’s teams within that playoffs who just know how to get it right.

“Catalan showed us a couple of years back the 2021 grand final against Saints, that game went right to the wire, it really did and thankfully for our side it was us that lifted the trophy. But, is this the year of the dragon? I don’t know.”

He does think St Helens could again be the side to lift the Super League trophy: “I still think that St Helens, get them into the playoffs, they have the squad. Every team in the competition would be frightened to play St Helens.

“I think if they get all the players right and the key personnel right, they have a chance to pull out that World Club Challenge performance again, which is probably the greatest performance in the club’s history.

“I think they’re quietly starting to, I think they’ve put four wins together in a row now, and they’re going to sort of head towards the back end of this season with a little bit of momentum behind them.”
