First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Warrington Wolves v Hull KR (Saturday 18:30 BST)

All the talk going into Warrington Wolves’ return to action has been about the future of Great Britain stand-off Gareth Widdop. The 31-year-old, who joined the Wolves at the start of the season, has been linked with a move back to his old club St George Illawarra Dragons in Australia. Warrington coach Steve Price has dismissed the reports claiming Widdop is happy at the club, but that won’t stop the rumour mill working overtime. When he’s allowed to play his own game, Widdop is one of the best players in the world. The off-field stuff will not distract him, and he is one of those players that will let his rugby do the talking. Back Widdop to keep himself in the headlines with the opening try for the Wolves against Hull KR.

First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Wakefield Trinity v Wigan Warriors (Saturday 15:15 BST)

When Adrian Lam first took over as coach of the Wigan Warriors in 2019, he promised to change the way they attacked and become more exciting to watch. It took him a while, but before lockdown Wigan were starting to show some of their flair with the likes of Jackson Hastings and Bevan French working their magic. French links up well from full-back, while Hastings controls everything and basically pulls the string. Wigan centre Zak Hardaker has been busy on social media during lockdown, engaging in entertaining spats with former NFL punter Marquette King and ex Super League player Jamie Foster. He just wants to get back playing rugby and I am backing him to go over for not only his first try of the season, but the first one in their match against Wakefield Trinity.
