Wigan and St Helens clash in Super League thriller on Good Friday

Rugby League fans are treated to some phenomenal action over the Easter period, with Super League games being played throughout this week, and then there will only be a couple of days turnaround for some teams, as there will also be some mouth-watering matches played on Bank Holiday Monday.

  • Castleford Tigers are top of Super League with seven wins
  • Widnes and Warrington have only one Super League win this season
  • St Helens sacked Keiron Cunningham earlier in the week

However, we shall focus on the first batch of games and the obvious highlight comes on Good Friday as Wigan Warriors host a St Helens side that will be without Keiron Cunningham at the helm, after the club legend was relieved of his duties earlier in the week, so Saints will be eager to bounce back from that shock departure.

Wigan To Edge Out Saints In Thriller

The departure of Cunningham sent shockwaves around Langtree Park, and St Helens could face a tough test to gain any positive result against a Wigan Warriors side that will be eager to bounce back from a 27-10 loss to Castleford Tigers last week, and with home advantage Shaun Wane's men can bag the win at 4/9 with Betfred, as they aim to return to the top-four.

St Helens, who are 2/1 shots with Sky Bet, have been producing indifferent displays this season, and could only draw 14-14 with lowly Huddersfield Giants last week, so while Wigan are missing some key personnel still they should have too much quality for their visitors on Friday afternoon.

Catalans To Beat Huddersfield, As Warrington Can Down Widnes

Catalans beat Leigh 37-24 last week and the French outfit could pick up another away success on Wednesday night, as they head to Huddersfield Giants, and with that side struggling for any sort of consistency this term then you have to feel that the 6/5 with bet365 for an away win is a great bet.

Meanwhile, on Thursday night Warrington Wolves aim to record their second win of their Super League campaign against Widnes Vikings, who are currently bottom of the table, and at 1/4 with Betfair Sportsbook for a Warrington win it's hard to look elsewhere in that contest.

Castleford To Cement Top Spot With Wakefield Win

Another stunning Castleford Tigers performance last week against Wigan saw them enhance their reputation further, and Daryl Powell's men can cement top spot with a 20-point success over Wakefield Trinity on Friday, but at 1/12 with Betfred they are not a betting proposition.

Elsewhere, Hull FC and Leeds meet on the same day, and that could be one of the tightest clashes of the week, and the 6/5 with bet365 for a Leeds win could be a decent value bet, while Salford can round off the next batch of matches with a comfortable win over Leigh, and the former are 1/5 shots with various firms.
