Super 8s: Game of the Week

Super 8s: Game of the Week

Warrington Wolves v St Helens

League Leaders’ Shield winners St Helens face a tough trip to Halliwell Jones Stadium to play Warrington Wolves in round 6 of the Super 8s.

The Wire lost out to Wigan Warriors in their last game after shuffling the pack as they guaranteed their place in the Super 8s play-offs the week before.

Wolves gave a debut to 19-year-old Luis Johnson who impressed, however, they could not stop Dominic Manfredi from scoring two tries on his return to the field after two years out with injury.

Saints have won their last two meetings against Wolves; the first a 30-12 victory in March before beating them again in July 14-12, tries from Ben Barba and Jonny Lomax gave Saints the win.

Toulouse Olympique v Hull KR

Toulouse Olympique will be trying to boost their promotion chances after a tough loss to Toronto Wolfpack on Sunday in Canada. The French Side impressed, however, a Gareth O’Brien drop goal gave Wolfpack a 13-12 victory.

Olympique are currently in fifth four points behind Hull KR in third, the French side are level on points with sixth placed London Broncos.

Broncos lost to KR 30-18, KR are trying to avoid the Million Pound Game, and two points against Olympique would boost their chances of automatic survival.

The teams played each other twice last year with Toulouse winning both games, the first, Olympique won at home 14-6, the second was an even closer affair with Toulouse winning by one point.
