Challenge Cup Final First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: St Helens v Castleford Tigers (Saturday 15:00 BST)

The Challenge Cup Final between St Helens and Castleford Tigers should be a bruising and entertaining affair on Saturday afternoon. I don’t expect it to be a high-scoring game, as I believe defences will be on top for the most part. The last time St Helens reached the Challenge Cup Final in 2019, full-back Lachlan Coote had a very rare off day. The Australian born Scotland international is leaving the Saints at the end of the season, and I am backing him to make amends and take a Challenge Cup winners medal with him as well as the accolade of scoring the first try of the game.
