Saints to continue early-season march

262

St Helens will fancy their chances of maintaining their 100 per cent record on Thursday night when they make the trip to Salford Red Devils.

Saints -8.5 handicap @ 10/11

St Helens once again look like they will be serious contenders for the Super League crown come the business end of the competition.

The Merseyside outfit have already claimed big wins over the likes of Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos this season and it does not look like the Red Devils can stop them.

Salford have made progress over the off-season and managed to secure three wins from their opening four games. However, they continue to struggle against the bigger teams.

Leeds put 46 points past Salford at the AJ Bell Stadium earlier this month and it’s not a stretch to think Saints can win by a similar margin.

Leeds -6.5 handicap @ 5/6

The Rhinos will be hurting after their narrow defeat at the hands of St Helens last time out. But they will be delighted to be back on home soil for the first time this season when they welcome Wakefield Trinity on Friday.

Leeds are at the dawn of a new era, with head coach Dave Furner now at the helm, and the Australian is starting to get some performance out this new-look side.

The Rhinos showed flashes of what they are capable of against Saints and being back at Headingley will a massive boost for the players.

Leeds will want to put on a show for their home supporters and Wakefield, who have had a stuttering start to the season which includes a shock defeat to London Broncos, might struggle to get a positive result in this West Yorkshire derby.
