In the first of our televised Super League games on Thursday the Giants are at home to Wigan. For 70 of the 80 minutes last week the Wolves outplayed the Warriors but then it all clicked again and Wigan showed why they are real title contenders. It’s the first time I have seen them look like a serious challenger to Saints domination. For that reason I think they will again by too strong for the spirited and adventurous Giants who have the best half back in the league in Danny Brough but who lines up behind an inffective pack these days. The power and speed of Wigan will prove too much for the Giants.

On Friday Wakefield got to the Jungle to take on the Tigers in what will be a tough match. Trinity are stregthened with the return of Danny Kirwan and others but the big plus for Cas is that Luke Gale is back and they now have that special spark back who can again sit behind those powerful, hard running forwards and aggressive centres. I dont think Wakefield will be a pushover but they will succomb over 80 minutes to a team that again might just get a home tie with a big win and might get to Old Trafford. They deserve it.
