Super League Predictions: Bad results for St Helens and Leeds Rhinos

Super League action returns with six fixtures in Round Seven this weekend.

It’s another full round of Super League action this week, broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Thursday night kicks the action off as Wigan Warriors travel to Leigh.

There are, once again, three games on Friday, as Castleford Tigers host Salford Red Devils, Hull KR play London Broncos, and an exciting top-of-the-table clash sees Leeds Rhinos take on Warrington Wolves.

The action doesn’t stop there, as on Saturday, Hull FC play Huddersfield Giants before a mouth-watering fixture in Perpignan sees Catalans Dragons vs St Helens.

After a clean sweep last week, below are all of Serious About Rugby League’s Super League predictions.

Wigan Warriors v Leigh Leopards

Wigan’s 15-game winning streak may be over, but they’re still as terrifying as ever. They lead until they were reduced to 12 men in the Derby at the weekend – and Saints are a very strong side,

Leigh’s defence, on the other hand, have struggled this year, and this pattern continued at the weekend, conceding 32 to Salford. Their attack seems to be starting to click however, and the return of Lachlan Lam is a boost.

Wigan will look to hit the Leopards hard on Thursday, and we’re backing them to bounce back.

Verdict: Wigan Warriors 22-6 Leigh Leopards

Castleford Tigers v Salford Red Devils

Castleford looked the better side for the first 40 minutes of their game against Leeds Rhinos, yet they failed to score a single point in that half, and ended up losing comfortably. The same was the case for a portion of their game against Wigan in Round One, but other than these moments, they’ve looked weak. A poor Rhinos side found it really easy to pick up second-half points.

Salford have been a somewhat of a surprise package in 2024, and have some impressive wins under their belt. They threw the ball around well against Leigh, and backed up their performance with a good victory.

It’s hard to imagine Castleford scoring many points again, and Salford could make the most of the young side’s conveyor belt of errors.

Verdict: Castleford Tigers 6-14 Salford Red Devils

Hull KR v London Broncos

Fresh off the back of a complete and utter humbling of Hull FC at Craven Park, the Robins’ tails will be well and truly up. It not only looked like they’d score in every set of the first half; it looked like every single play could result in a try.

It’s easy to feel sorry for London. They play a good brand of rugby, and gave us an exciting half against Huddersfield at the weekend, but ultimately, it all felt very inevitable when the Giants’ tries came in, one after another.

Say it quietly, but a sold-out Craven Park could be treated to plenty of tries here.

Verdict: Hull KR 54-10 London Broncos

The pack battle will likely be won by Warrington here, and that could prove crucial, allowing them to win the territory battle and get a few more points on the board.

Verdict: Leeds Rhinos 16-24 Warrington Wolves

Hull FC v Huddersfield Giants

Hull FC’s defence did their best impression of an umbrella in a thunderstorm at the weekend – they were completely blown away, leaving massive gaps for their city rivals to stroll in and score six first-half tries. That’s been a theme this season.

Huddersfield have put up some huge score-lines over the past month, and once they got going against the Broncos, a flurry of tries came.

Tony Smith may be in a spot of bother after this one, as we can’t see them winning here, either.

Verdict: Hull FC 4-20 Huddersfield Giants

Catalans Dragons v St Helens

Last year’s Grand Finalists are looking as strong as ever, winning a fierce battle against Warrington last week and sweeping teams aside with both power and flair.

Saints look excellent also. Yes, they were behind against 13-man Wigan, but their performance showed that they’re more than capable of winning against the league’s very best.

This game’s result is anyone’s guess, and the two huge forward packs may cancel each other out – this one may be down to the quality of the backs…

Verdict: Catalans Dragons 8-6 St Helens
