Super League Grand Final First Try Scorer Predictions & Tips: Wigan Warriors v St Helens (Friday 20:00 GMT)

The 2020 Super League season comes to a close on Friday evening when Wigan Warriors and St Helens battle it out in the Grand Final to be crowned champions. Grand Finals are normally tight affairs with points and tries at a minimum, with defences on top for the majority of the 80 mioniutes. These two will knock 10 bells out of each other, but we will still see the odd moment of magic. Both Wigan and Saints have amazing players like Regan Grace, Bevan French, Lachlan Coote, Oliver Gildart, Tommy Makinson and Zak Hardaker who are capable of scoring tries from anywhere on the field. I have already mentioned that defences will be on top on Friday and chances will be few and far between. I am going for a barge over try for the opener with Wigan hooker Sam Powell going over. Powell has been in sensational form all season, he has scored 11 tries this season and his alertness close to the line has been a problem for most teams this season. I am backing him to get over the line from close range to get the opening try of the Grand Final.
