Back again. Super League prediction time. Definitely no expert opinion here.
Here we go.
Warrington vs St Helens – “The Champions, that’s the Super League winners by the way, were superb in beating Salford last week without really getting out of first gear. They make the game look easy at times and played some really slick stuff. Saints have lost Lachlan Coote to injury, but when you’ve got teenage sensation Jack Welsby to step in, it’s hardly a crisis. Meanwhile Warrington were impressive at Wigan before Chris Hill decided to be a wanker again, and they’ll be without him here. Probably a good thing. Should be a cracking game this but it’s hard to look past the team in the Red V.”
Castleford vs Wigan – “Jake Trueman is a proper baller and really impressed against Toronto in the Headingley double header. Cas have still got a few out though and Wigan will fancy their chances. In true Pies fashion they got the job done last week with Bevan French impressing. They’ll make it two from two here, despite losing Oliver Partington when Big Judd takes his head off.”
Hull vs Rovers – “One of the biggest games of the Super League season, Hull ‘n’ Rovers meet for the first time this year. We all know how good Hull were on Sunday, but it’s the other side of the city who surprised many by beating Wakefield two nights before. Rovers can play some slick stuff, but they won’t be able to handle Hull down the middle, despite the home side missing the Tongan Terminator and Big Gaz Ellis.”
Salford vs Toronto – “They might have got stuffed at St Helens last week, but Salford will kick start their season here. Ian Watson is a superb coach and despite a few in and outs there’s the makings of a decent team. Toronto tried to play expansively, but they were more open than Katie Price’s legs on their Super League debut and need to tighten things up. It’s going to be tough for them again here. Salford to win this one, and Brian McDermott to spend his post match presser moaning about the salary cap.”
Wakefield vs Catalans – “Both sides were diabolical last week and can only improve. Catalans are really enhancing their reputation as a team full of dicks. Just google ‘Sam Tomkins new puppy’. But with their roster they can’t be this useless forever. Wakefield were hopeless at Caravan Park, and I don’t see it getting much better here. Catalans for the win.”
Huddersfield vs Leeds – “Aidan Sezer was on fire in the South of France, orchestrating a fine opening day win for Huddersfield. Kenny Edwards too impressed. They’ve got a good roster and they’ll be confident of beating a very poor Leeds side. With Agent Agar at the helm they’re falling apart again and it’s simply, simply lovely.”
