Previewing Round 21

Previewing Round 21

#superleague

First Utility Super League Round 21 starts with a Thursday night thriller between Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers at Headingley. Second will host fifth but with only one point separating them on the league table it is too close to call. Both sides go in off the back of a win last weekend as the battle at the top continues.

This opener will be followed by a double header on Friday night. Wigan will welcome Hull FC and the Wolves travel the short distance to Widnes. Wigan occupy third spot on equal points with the Wolves so the results of these two games could see changes at the leading end of the table. Hull FC are struggling in eleventh and will be looking to right the wrongs from last week's defeat at the hands of Salford. Widnes will also be keen to get one over their local rivals and secure their top eight position.

Saturday sees another two extraordinary encounters with Wakefield travelling over to the South of France and London entertaining current league leaders St Helens. Catalan were defeated at home last weekend so will be hoping for a change of fortune this time out. The Broncos will be playing for pride once again, targeting that elusive first win of the season with just seven games remaining.

The weekend of rugby will be rounded off on Sunday when Huddersfield play Bradford and Hull KR welcome Salford Red Devils. A win for Bradford could keep their hopes alive with 14 points still up for grabs but a Salford win would push them out of reach. Huddersfield stood up well against the Tigers but Castleford's home advantage shone through in the end. Salford found form over the Black and Whites having beaten Huddersfield the previous week, so a run of good form is on the cards.

Match tickets are on sale for Friday's trip to Widnes. Available in store at WolfWare, on WolfWare Online (until midnight tonight) and by calling 08448 11 11 76 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm).
