Super League Round Two is almost upon as the story of the 2023 season begins to unfurl.
Here is how we see this week’s fixtures unfolding.
Salford Red Devils vs Hull KR
This could be the game of the round. Two teams who are ready to attack and score points. Hull KR laid down a real marker last week whilst the Red Devils were one of the best teams of the 2022 season. The Red Devils, at home, should have too much for the Robins who are missing key players.
Salford Red Devils 22-10 Hull KR
Leeds Rhinos vs Hull FC
Hull FC’s first 40 minutes against Castleford Tigers was one of the best performances of the opening weekend but their second half is cause for concern. But based on Leeds’ opening day performance against Warrington, the Black and Whites should edge it.
Leeds Rhinos 12-18 Hull FC
Huddersfield Giants vs Warrington Wolves
Based on last week, Warrington look set to compete with the likes of Huddersfield at the top of Super League turning this into a game where either side could make a statement with a win. The Giants didn’t have a game last week so that could mean they are a little under done for the challenge.
Huddersfield Giants 18-22 Warrington Wolves
Wigan Warriors vs Wakefield Trinity
Two sides who were beaten in the opening round meet on Friday night wanting a win. The Warriors you would expect to be favourites and there could be a harsh reaction after their opening weekend defeat.
Wigan Warriors 34-6 Wakefield Trinity
Catalans Dragons vs Leigh Leopards
Leigh showed last week that they can be competitive but away in France against a Catalans side who have some key men back, it could prove too difficult for them. The Dragons started the season with a win last week.
Catalans Dragons 30-12 Leigh Leopards
Castleford Tigers vs St Helens
The World Champions are in town as the Castleford Tigers look to build momentum from their second half against Hull FC last week. They could stun the Saints this weekend after their journey back from Australia which, due to complications, was 53 hours long.
Castleford Tigers 20-12 St Helens
