Setting the scene

Warrington Wolves are top of the pile in Super League after 13 rounds but the chasing pack are hot on their heels and they could be knocked off top spot by Wigan Warriors or Catalans Dragons if things don't go their way in Newcastle.

Wire bring down the curtain on Magic Weekend with a tricky-looking test against a resurgent Hull FC side but they will fancy their chances of another win after hammering the Black & Whites earlier in the season.

Warrington are warm favourites for a repeat victory and they can ill-afford any more slip ups after a patchy run that saw them well-beaten by Leigh last time out.

Wigan are the closest of the chasers in second place but breathing down their necks are Catalans Dragons, who are third only on points difference.

How to watchSky Sports Arena & Main Event
OddsSalford 11/8, Tie 20/1, Hull KR 8/13

These two are well in the play-off picture and this looks a tricky match to call as both sides have shown this season that they can beat anyone on their day.

Salford edged past Hull FC last time out, while KR were beaten by Wigan only after extra-time golden point at Craven Park.

These two have almost identical records in the league this season, winning eight of their 13 league fixtures, but Rovers have dominated recent meetings having won seven of the last eight match-ups.

This could swing either way, but Hull KR have dominated the Red Devils in recent times and are fancied to come out on top once again in Newcastle.

Both sides like to play on the front foot and the points could pile up at St James' Park. However, KR often find a way to win against Salford and they will be smarting after their last-gasp loss against Wigan last week.

An end-to-end contest is expected but Hull KR winning the match by 1 to 12 points at 13/8 looks the best bet in the opening contest.

OddsWigan 1/2, Tie 20/1, Catalans Dragons 17/10

Catalans Dragons beat Wigan Warriors 18-10 at the DW Stadium in round four and they fancied to do the double this weekend.

That win ended a 15-match winless streak for the Dragons at Wigan and the French side are starting to go through the gears.

They have won their last three league matches while scoring at least 24 points in each game in the process, and the Dragons may be too hot for misfiring Wigan to handle.

The Warriors have won just one of their last three matches and that was a last-gasp golden-point win at Hull KR.

Catalans look in the better shape of these two sides and this mouth-watering clash between second and third in the table could edge their way.

They have shown already this season how to beat Wigan and they are fancied to back it up with another victory this weekend at 17/10.

OddsHull FC 21/10, Tie 20/1, Warrington Wolves 2/5

Warrington are feeling the heat as the league leaders in Super League and they wilted under the pressure against Leigh Leopards last time out.

That 30-12 defeat to the newly-promoted upstarts was a chastening experience for the Wolves, who have lost just three of their 13 league matches this season.

However, they hammered Hull FC 34-6 earlier this season and will fancy their chances of getting back on track at the earliest opportunity at match odds of 2/5, although they may not have things all their own way this time around.

FC are in a much better place then they were for that drubbing in round seven and have won four of their last six matches in all competitions since then.

They can make more of a game of it, although they were edged out by Salford 29-22 last week and are fancied to come up short once again.

Warrington to win by 1 to 12 points at 8/5 looks the best bet in the final match of the weekend in Newcastle.
