We’ve got Super League tips for all six of this week’s matches and an accumulator on our Round 6 selections would pay out at nearly 16/1 if they all manage to come out on top.
Wakefield to beat Leigh @ 3/4
Trinity paid the price for making too many individual mistakes when losing 38-14 at Leeds last week but the signs were still there that Chris Chester’s side have the ability to score plenty of points, with star winger Tom Johnstone crossing over for two more tries. Wakefield had previously beaten St Helens and Salford in close contests and are worth another chance.
Leeds to win at Huddersfield @ 1/2
The Rhinos should be high on confidence after posting big wins over Catalans and Wakefield at Headingley and can hopefully now continue their rehabilitation with an away victory over Huddersfield. The Giants recovered from a couple of hammerings when hit by injuries to draw 16-16 at Wigan last week but that was against a depleted Warriors outfit.
St Helens to beat Warrington @ 11/20
Saints made a shaky start to the season but they showed some encouraging signs when pushing Hull close at the KCOM Stadium a fortnight ago and then did us a favour when prevailing 28-24 against Catalans in France to give Keiron Cunningham a much-needed boost. Warrington continued to struggle when going down 22-8 at Leigh and are a team to avoid for a little while longer.
Salford to win at Widnes @ 11/20
The Red Devils have been on the wrong end of a couple of thrilling finishes this season so they deserved to nick one when edging out Castleford 13-12, ending the Tigers’ 100 per cent record. Ben Murdoch-Masila was a monster when bagging a brace of tries that day and can help Salford to overpower a Vikings outfit which has yet to win this year and looks a touch lightweight.
Hull to win at Wigan @ 5/4
Hull have been typically efficient in putting together three straight wins and their relentless work-rate may just be enough to see off a Warriors team which have been decimated by injuries since claiming a brutal World Club Challenge victory against Cronulla. Last week’s draw with Huddersfield was a game effort by Wigan in the circumstances but this is a much tougher test.
Castleford to beat Catalans @ 9/50
The Tigers couldn’t quite get their free-flowing attacking moves going in poor weather conditions at Salford last week but hopefully they can quickly rediscover the sparkle which blew away their first four opponents. Catalans have lost all momentum after initially making a bright start to the season and this big side could be run ragged if Castleford find their rhythm.
