Super League Top Tryscorer Odds: Wigan trio feature high in betting

With Super League XXIX on the horizon, all 12 teams will be hoping for a big season and dreaming of a place in the Grand Final at Old Trafford on 12th October.

The top tryscorer in the league often comes from a team that challenges at the top end of the table and the antepost odds suggest that will be the case again in 2024.

The top five in the market are all currently playing for Catalans Dragons, St Helens or the defending champions, Wigan Warriors.

Super League Top Tryscorer Odds

(Odds will display when markets are available)

Rugby League

Tom Johnstone

Having made the move from Wakefield to France in the close season, Johnstone played a key role in Catalans making the Grand Final in 2023.

The winger, who can also play at centre, is one of the fastest players in the league and finished joint-top in the tryscoring table last year, racking up 27 tries in the regular season.

As the Dragons look to end their wait for a first Super League title, the German-born Johnstone is likely to be a regular again in 2024.

With three of their first five matches of the season set to be played at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, the 28-year-old will look to get off to a fast start and get his nose in front early in the battle to finish as the top tryscorer.

Johnstone’s efforts are made all the more impressive by the fact that he has suffered two ACL injuries – one in each leg – during his rugby career.

Thomas Makinson

The St Helens fullback/winger has won the Grand Final no fewer than five times and has finished in the top-five tryscorers in the last two seasons.

England international Makinson ran in 22 tries across the 2022 regular season, before matching that tally in the 2023 campaign.

St Helens’ four-year run of Super League success came to an end last term – with a semi-final defeat to Catalans – but they will be fired up to get back to Old Trafford in 2024.

It’s also worth noting that Makinson finished seventh in the Super League top pointscorer charts last season, with the 32-year-old scoring 146 points.

Abbas Miski

One of three Wigan players in the top five of the betting, Miski was the joint top tryscorer in 2023 – crossing the whitewash 27 times in 27 regular season games.

The man from Lebanon moved to the Super League in 2021, joining London Broncos before switching to Wigan a year later, having started his career in the NRL with Manley Sea Eagles.

Miski’s standout display of last season came in Round 26, when the 28-year-old ran in five tries in the Warriors’ 48-6 victory over the Castleford Tigers.

The winger, who collected his first trophy in 2023, scored 17 tries in his last seven matches of the regular season and claimed another in the play-off semi-final win over Hull KR.

Liam Marshall

In what will be his eighth season in Super League, Marshall is likely to play a significant role in coach Matt Peet’s plans for the 2024 campaign.

The 27-year-old was the hero of the Warriors’ Grand Final success over Catalans, scoring the only try of the game in Wigan’s 10-2 victory.

Marshall grabbed 20 tries across last season, following on from a 22-try haul in 2022, and claiming two hat-tricks in the campaign, which included a four-try haul in the 60-0 win over Wakefield in Round Two.

The winger is another to have fought back from an ACL injury, with knee problems forcing him to miss the Grand Final win over Warrington in 2018 and the final defeat to St Helens in 2020. He will be desperate to add another Super League ring to his collection in 2024.

Bevan French

He may have finished eighth in the try scoring standings last season, but in everything else French was the top performer and collected the Steve Prescott Man of Steel award.

The Australian-born star finished top of the Try Assist standings, with 30 across the regular season, as well as crossing the whitewash 17 times himself.

French, who topped the tryscoring charts in 2022 with 31 tries, has won both the Super League and Challenge Cup during his time with the Warriors.

With his current contract due to expire at the end of 2024, this might be his final season in England and if it is, he will want to end it on a high.
