Sky Sports pundit Sam Tomkins is up next on Love Rugby League's Super League predictions feature

Love Rugby League takes on Sky Sports pundit Sam Tomkins in this week’s predictions for Round 11 of Super League.

In a weekly series coming up throughout 2024, the Love Rugby League team will be taking on the Sky Sports experts in making score predictions for each Super League round.

And just for a bit of fun, we’re going to keep a running league table, so it’ll be 1 point for a correct result and 3 points for a correct scoreline. This can either make us experts look like we know what we’re talking about, or, indeed, quite the opposite! We’ll keep a running table all season.

Love Rugby League‘s Drew Darbyshire goes up against former England captain and two-time Man of Steel winner Sam Tomkins in this week’s predictions..

Warrington Wolves v Hull Kingston Rovers

ST: KR have looked very good in recent weeks beating both Wigan and Saints back to back. After seeing them beat Saints so convincingly last week, I think they will be too strong for Warrington and make it three league wins on the bounce in the league against strong teams.

Sam’s pick: Hull KR by 10

DD: If the game was at Craven Park, I’d probably back Hull KR given the fact Peters’ side have turned it into a fortress. But with it being at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, I’m going with home advantage and backing Warrington, but I don’t think there’ll be much in it.

Drew’s pick: Warrington by 4

Castleford Tigers v St Helens

ST: Castleford will have certainly gained confidence after a good performance against Leigh last week, but I think St Helens will be desperate to redeem themselves after being beaten by 20 points by KR and come away with the win.

Sam’s pick: St Helens by 20

DD: I agree with Sam, the Tigers will take plenty of confidence from their last two games: a big win over London and coming away from Leigh with a point. Having said that, I just think Saints will be too strong this week. Paul Wellens’ side will be hungry to return to winning ways – in good fashion – after a heavy loss at Hull KR last time out.

Drew’s pick: St Helens by 14

Huddersfield Giants v Wigan Warriors

ST: I thought Wigan were very good last week and shut out Catalans convincingly, especially in the second half. I am expecting more of the same from the Warriors who will be too strong for Huddersfield.

Catalans Dragons v Leeds Rhinos

ST: Catalans will be looking for a much-improved defensive performance after leaking 60 points in the last two games. I think they will be well aware of the threats this Leeds team possess, but will be too strong at home to be beaten.

Sam’s pick: Catalans by 12

DD: There probably won’t be many times this season that I will back against the Dragons on home soil. Steve McNamara’s men will be desperate to bounce back from recent away defeats in Leigh and Wigan. Leeds, meanwhile, are missing several key players, including Brodie Croft, so I can only see one winner in this one.

Drew’s pick: Catalans by 16

London Broncos v Hull FC

ST: London are going to get their first win of the year at some point, and I think this could be it! The closest they have come to winning a game was at Hull FC earlier this year, so they’ll be confident they can push them all the way at home.

Sam’s pick: London by 6

DD: Hull have shown improvements since Simon Grix took over, and with a couple of new additions, the Black and Whites seem to be getting better, slowly but surely. I just think they’ll have too much for the Broncos in the capital.

Drew’s pick: Hull FC by 16
