Super League reaches round six this weekend and we expect a lot of tries to be scored from Thursday until Sunday. Who will get the opening tries?
Tale a look at my first try scorer acca and see if you agree with my predictions.
Super League Tips – Regan Grace 1st try scorer for St Helens against Huddersfield Giants @ 7/1 William Hill
Regan Grace is one of the best finishers in the world of rugby league. The Wales international is lightening quick and can score from anywhere on the field. If St Helens start throwing the ball around like they can do, then Grace will be up there at the top of try scoring charts at the end of the season. I was unimpressed with Huddersfield last weekend against Wigan, they were exploited on the edges on a number of occasions with wingers Liam Marshall and Dom Manfredi grabbing tries. If Jonny Lomax and Theo Fages can spread the play wide, then expect Grace to get the ball rolling with the opening try of the night.
Super League Tips – Tom Johnstone 1st try scorer for Wakefield Trinity against Hull FC @ 17/2 William Hill
Tom Johnstone is a try scoring machine. Similarly, to Grace, if Johnstone gets in space then forget about it, it’s try time all day long. Don’t just think he can only score long distance tries, he is lethal close to the line as well with his acrobatic skills earning him many a score. I’ve backed Hull to win this game and end a run of three consecutive defeats, but I expect Wakefield to start fast one again and claim the opening score of the evening.
Super League Tips – Tom Lineham 1st try scorer for Warrington Wolves vs Castleford Tigers @ 10/1 William Hill
Castleford Tigers are going well at the start of the season with four wins and one defeat, but they have been a little bit of a slow starter in the opening 40 minutes. I fully expect them to be too strong for Warrington on Friday night, but I’m backing the Wolves to opening the scoring. They will be eager to get an early try on the board, seeing as they failed to register a single point in their defeat at Leeds Rhinos in round five. Gareth Widdop and Blake Austin have yet to click together, so I’m going for winger Tom Lineham to break the deadlock. He is a lethal finisher and if they get the ball to him close to the line, then there will be no stopping him.
