Super League XXIX round two preview: Rhinos facing difficult away trip

After a thrilling opening weekend of the new Super League season, we can look forward to a reduced schedule in week two, with reigning champions Wigan Warriors not in action as they prepare to compete in the World Club Challenge against the Penrith Panthers.

That means their clash with Leigh Leopards will be moved to later in the season, but there are still some exciting games on the agenda.

There were some big statements made in the opening week by the likes of St Helens, Wigan and Hull KR, while Castleford and Hull FC will be eager to do better after poor showings in their openers.
 

Super League

Hull Kingston Rovers v Leeds Rhinos

Hull KR look to have started where they left off, with Willie Peters' side beginning the new season in style.

The Robins reached the play-offs in 2023 and they made a flying start to the new year with a 22-0 derby success over neighbours Hull FC.

Leeds also scored 22 points in their victory over Salford Red Devils, but Rohan Smith's men were pushed all the way in a 22-16 win at Headingley.

Hull KR got the better of Leeds in both meetings last season and will fancy their chances of improving that record on home turf.

London Broncos v Catalans Dragons

Newly promoted London were hammered at home in their opener by St Helens last week and they will do well to avoid a similar result against Catalans.

Saints ran out 40-4 winners on the road and the fixture list could have been kinder to Mike Eccles and his side.

They will at least get to welcome Catalans to the capital, but the visitors will be full of confidence after a 16-10 win over Warrington in week one.

Warrington Wolves v Hull FC

Two teams with points to prove meet on Friday night as Sam Burgess tries to register his first win as Warrington boss.

His side failed to capitalise on their man advantage for most of the second half against Catalans, but that is a tough first assignment for any coach.

The Dragons reached last year's Grand Final, and Burgess will be much more confident his team can get one over Hull FC, who looked hapless in their defeat to Hull KR at home.

Warrington Wolves v Hull FC odds

Warrington - 1/12
Hull FC - 13/2
Tie - 33/1

Huddersfield Giants v St Helens

Ian Watson's Huddersfield Giants will get the chance to showcase their potential this season when they play host to St Helens.

After finishing ninth last year, plenty is expected of the Giants, who started the season with a gutsy 16-8 victory against Leigh on their travels in week one.

Saints barely had to get out of second gear to overcome London and it will be fascinating to see how competitive Huddersfield can be at home against one of the title favourites.

Huddersfield - 12/5
St Helens - 1/3
Tie - 22/1

Salford Red Devils v Castleford Tigers

After losing 32-4 to Wigan in week one, Castleford will look for a response when they travel across the M62.

Craig Lingard watched his team reduced to 12 men in the first half against Wigan, and Liam Watts' red card certainly tipped the momentum in favour of Wigan, who never looked back.

Salford showed plenty of determination in their defeat to Leeds, so this could be a narrow victory for either side in a fierce battle.

Salford Red Devils v Castleford Tigers odds

Salford - 2/7
Castleford - 11/4
