Challenge Cup Semi-Finals First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: St Helens v Hull FC (Saturday 14:30 BST)

St Helens outscored Hull FC six tries to three in Super League last weekend as they won 34-16. They meet again in the Challenge Cup semi-finals and I expect this to be a much closer affair. The Saints will be without centre Mark Percival after he limped off last week, but both Tommy Makinson and Regan Grace return. Grand Final hero Jack Welsby scored a hat-trick last Friday, and he will probably move into the centre to replace Percival and allow Grace and Makinson to both start on the wing. I expect Saints to win this in a tight affair, so I am backing Wales international Grace to be on the end of a passing move to touch down in the corner.
