Super 8s Game of the Week

Super 8s Game of the Week

Super League Super 8s

CATALANS DRAGONS V ST HELENS (Live on Sky Sports, Saturday 5:30PM)

Saints will travel to the south of France on Saturday, knowing a win or draw could see them crowned as the League Leaders’ Shield champions - if Wigan lose to Wakefield Trinity on Thursday.

Saints were knocked out of the Challenge Cup semi-finals by eventual winners Catalans Dragons, Justin Holbrook’s men will be looking to make amends for that defeat by putting in a better display than that of last week against Wigan Warriors.

Saints have lost two of their three Super 8s games, their only win came against Wakefield Trinity. Dragons could be forgiven for concentrating on the Challenge Cup, they have yet to win a game in Super 8s.

Super 8s The Qualifiers


Salford Red Devils have started Super 8s The Qualifiers in great form winning three out of three games to reach the summit of the table. They started the qualifiers with a win against Super League rivals Hull KR, the next two games Devils showed their class with two convincing wins, the first against Widnes and the second a 62-4 demolition of Halifax.

Toronto have won two out of their three games; their only loss came at home to Hull KR whilst they beat their two Championship rivals Halifax and London Broncos. Wolfpack are level on four points with Leeds, Toulouse and Hull KR.

If Toronto win it will leave the qualifiers wide open with most teams in with a chance to finish in the top five, Wolfpack will have to put pressure on Salford pair, Jackson Hastings and Robert Lui who have impressed so far.
