Super League Round Eight Predictions: Huge results at the bottom and top and derby day pain

It’s Rivals Round as we head towards Easter.

One of the best times to be a rugby league fan, it should be an amazing weekend of rugby.

But who will be the winners and losers this weekend?

Here our predictions:

Wakefield Trinity 10-18 Castleford Tigers
A battle at the bottom between two local rivals with just one win between them. Early in the season, this already feels like a big game for the two at the bottom. If Wakefield lose they will be firmly adrift from the rest. Both sides welcome back big players for the game but the Tigers have looked better under Andy Last recently.

Hull FC 16-20 Hull KR
Almost always a close and competitive came between two sides with a deep rivalry, the current plight of Hull FC may not come into the equation as these games the form book often goes out of the window. However, Hull KR look in better shape at this stage of the season and should claim the win.

Wigan Warriors 6-10 St Helens
The Grand Final in waiting? An absolutely huge game and a test of both team’s credentials after strong starts to the season that have been a little flawed in some areas. Wigan missing a few players could come up just short against the Champions.

Leigh Leopards 14-18 Salford Red Devils
Both these sides have shown promising signs early this season and thus this should be another close battle like when the sides met in Round One. If that game is anything to go by, Salford could have just enough.

Catalans Dragons 22-20 Warrington Wolves
The top two collide this weekend in a huge game that should also be a very tight affair. At home this may be Catalans’ chance to pull level with the Wolves at the top of the league but Daryl Powell’s side will take some beating.

Leeds Rhinos 10-20 Huddersfield Giants
A clash of styles as they expansive Rhinos host a Huddersfield side who excel at dominating the game with a low risk style. The conditions could play a key role but if the Giants can manage the Rhinos’ threat they could claim back to back wins.
