First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Leeds Rhinos v Catalans Dragons (Wednesday 18:00 BST)

Leeds Rhinos play host to Catalans Dragons at Headingley on Wednesday with the home side already having one eye on their Challenge Cup semi-final against Wigan Warriors on Saturday. Head coach Richard Agar has made 15 changes to his 21-man squad with only Luke Briscoe and Adam Cuthbertson keeping their places for the team that beat Hull KR. Leeds are obviously taking the Challenge Cup seriously, and they are willing to risk losing this one to make sure they are ready for Saturday. Catalans Dragons have named a full-strength squad and coach Steve McNamara has opted to keep the same squad that lost to Warrington Wolves last week. The Dragons would normally struggle at Headingley, but they should be too strong for a young and inexperienced Rhinos side. With Sam Tomkins pulling the strings, the likes of Fouad Yaha and Tom Davies have benefitted with 13 tries between them. I’m backing Yaha to grab his eighth try of the season with the opening score of the game.

First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Castleford Tigers v Hull FC (Thursday 19:45 BST)

It is safe to say that this game between Castleford Tigers and Hull FC will see plenty of tries, this is not because they are both fluent and entertaining attacking teams, I believe both defences are below par. The Tigers are seventh on the league ladder and have shipped in 247 points, while Hull are one point below them and they have conceded 330 points. I am not saying they are both poor in attack, I just feel that their hard work with ball in hand is often let down by their tackling techniques. Hull should be too strong for the Tigers, and I am backing full-back Jamie Shaul to open up the scoring.
