Super League Returns for Round 24

Super League Returns for Round 24


A Thursday night thriller at the KC Lightstream Stadium between Hull KR and Wigan Warriors will kick-start First Utility Super League Round 24.

Last time out the Warriors claimed victory over Salford and Rovers suffered defeat at the hands of Widnes. Hull KR are targeting a top-eight finish currently sitting in ninth place, three points shy of Widnes in eighth.

There is a trio of matches to look forward to on Friday night including the clash between the Wolves and Tigers at The Halliwell Jones Stadium which will see fourth and fifth go head to head. Both teams go in on the back of Tetley's Challenge Cup semi finals last weekend; but with contrasting results.

Salford will welcome Catalan and St Helens will also host Wakefield. Saints currently occupy top spot but with just a two-point cushion on 34 with a chasing trio on 32 points. Wakefield can mathematically still make the play-offs but will be reliant on other results too. Either way the Wildcats will be looking to return to their recent winning form having taken a dip last time out against Huddersfield.

Catalan suffered a narrow two-point defeat at the hands of the Wolves in the last round and the Red Devils slipped up away to Wigan.

The final three matches of the round will be played on Sunday. London are still looking to secure their first win of the season and come up against Challenge Cup finalists the Leeds Rhinos; the week before Wembley which makes for an interesting encounter depending on teams fielded.

Bradford host Hull FC and will be confident of a result going in off the back of wins over Wigan and Leeds. The Black and Whites sit just two places above in eleventh and have the lift of a win over current league leader St Helens.

Widnes take a trip to Huddersfield on the back of their cup defeat to Castleford as sixth-place Giants host eighth.

Match tickets for the Wolves' home test against the Tigers are still available in WolfWare and at WolfWare Online (until midnight tomorrow - Thursday). Or call 08448 11 11 76 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm)
