Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (Thursday 2nd March, 8:00pm)

Castleford Tigers propelled to the top of the Super League table with a superb 30-22 win over Warrington Wolves last week, and the flourishing attacking side will attempt to make it three wins from three on Thursday night in front of the Sky Sports cameras when they host Leeds Rhinos.

The Rhinos scrambled home against Salford Red Devils 20-14 last week and have got to improve hugely if they are to bounce back from a shocking campaign last season, but with Castleford glowing with confidence and scoring at will then it's hard to not see the home side winning again, and the 4/11 with Paddy Power looks tough to avoid, while the 10/11 with Betfred for Castleford -8 in the handicap betting is another eye-catching price for those punters looking for some value.

St Helens v Wakefield Trinity (Friday 3rd March, 8:00pm)

St Helens will be eager to return to action after suffering a shock defeat at the hands of Super League newcomers Leigh Centurions last Friday, but the Saints will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways as they host Wakefield Trinity, who have lost their opening two matches and could be destined for another tough season in the top-flight.

Saints are 1/4 chances with Sky Bet for the win, with Wakefield as big as 7/2 with Betway, but the home side can comfortably dispatch their rivals on Friday, and could turn the screw in the second half of the match, so the Evens with Sky Bet for St Helens -6 on the second half handicap is a cracking bet in what could turn into a one-sided affair in the second 40 minutes.

Catalans Dragons v Widnes Vikings (Saturday 4th March, 5:00pm)

Wins against Warrington and Hull FC have catapulted Catalans Dragons into possible title contenders this season, and the French outfit will aim to make it thrree wins on the spin on Saturday teatime, and they are red-hot 1/7 favourites with Betfred bookmakers to beat a Widnes Vikings side that have lost their opening two matches.

Laurent Frayssinous' Dragons side produced a cracking display last weekend as they edged out Hull FC away from home, and with such a fine record on home soil it''s going to be a huge struggle for the Vikings to land a significant blow on their rivals, and the home side could ease to a comfortable 20-point success.
