This week’s Super League Pod predictions, in association with Love Rugby League, look at the weekend’s Challenge Cup games.
St Helens v Catalans: Two form sides meet in the first semi-final. Saints’ star-studded spine come up against a host of rested Catalans stars. But with Greg Bird suspended, will that make a difference? Mark and Tim think so. Mark has gone for Saints by 10, Tim thinks it will be Saints by 10.
Warrington v Leeds: The second semi-final sees a Top 4 v Bottom 4 clash. Form says Warrington, history says Leeds. Mark and Tim are both backing form on this occasion. Mark has tipped Wire by 14, Tim has gone for Wire by 10.
The boys also give a preview to the Women’s Challenge Cup Final between Castleford and Leeds, being played on Saturday at Warrington. Although both tip table topping Leeds Rhinos, Mark and Tim talk about some of the stars on show for both sides that could influence the game one way or the other.
Listen in to Episode 192 of Super League Pod to hear them justify these predictions and also preview the SLP Game of the Week from League 1 – Bradford v Whitehaven.
