Kingstone Press League 1 Super 8s and Shield Round 3 Preview

First up this weekend in the Kingstone Press League 1 Super 8s, Newcastle Thunder take on second-placed Barrow Raiders on Saturday (7.00pm).

The Cumbrian side have won both their Super 8s games so far and will be hoping to secure a victory to keep the pressure on table-toppers Toronto Wolfpack.

On Sunday, York City Knights will be looking to bounce back following their narrow 22-20 defeat to Keighley Cougars when they welcome Workington Town to Bootham Crescent.

Doncaster RLFC continue their search for a Super 8s victory when they come head to head with Whitehaven RLFC.

Doncaster prop Mark Castle needs one appearance to reach 200 for his career.

After returning to winning ways in round 2, Toronto Wolfpack travel to Cougar Park to face Keighley. The West Yorkshire side could potentially move in to fifth place and a play-off position with a win this weekend.

Toronto Captain Craig Hall is aiming to continue his try scoring streak, the centre has scored in the Wolfpack’s last eight games.

The Kingstone Press League 1 Shield competition sees London Skolars take on Oxford RLFC, who are without a win in their last ten games. Skolars player-coach Jermaine Coleman needs just one appearance to reach 150 for the club.

University of Gloucestershire All Golds face Coventry Bears on Saturday.

Also in action this weekend are first-placed Hunslet RLFC who travel to North Wales Crusaders (2.30pm). North Wales will be hoping for a win to close the gap at the top of the table between the two sides.

South Wales Ironmen take on Hemel Stags (3.00pm) in the final game of the weekend.
