Challenge Cup Accumulator: Leigh’s run set to continue
They may be the only Championship clubs left in the draw but Leigh Centurions are not in the quarter-finals stage to make up the numbers.
The second tier leaders have lost just once this season and after sending two Super league sides packing in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup already this year they’ll be confident of causing another upset at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Read on to see why backing the Centurions in our 16/1 acca is the way to go for this weekend’s Challenge Cup.
Leigh to beat Warrington @ 5/1
The Centurions are riding high in confidence, with a shock defeat to London Broncos the only blemish on their season so far.
The Wolves, on the other hand, have now won just once in four games and come into this tie on the back of two successive defeats.
The Super League club may have won their last Challenge Cup meeting back in 2008 but if form is anything to go by the Centurions will exact their revenge this time round.
Hull KR to beat Catalans @ 8/13
The French outfit are a force to be reckoned with at home and can/do beat anyone and everyone on their day.
That form rarely translates on this side of the Channel though, with the Dragons winning just one away game in the league this year against basement boys Wakefield, and with a lengthy injury list including Jeff Lima, Todd Carney and Willie Tonga this game could be beyond them.
Rovers have improved their form just in time for this clash, shaking off three successive losses to produce back-to-back wins over the Widnes and Warrington and with that in mind they have to be tipped for a home win.
Leeds to beat Hull FC @ 8/15
Leeds have been in patchy form of late, last winning two games in a row in mid-April. However, after beating Hull 32-20 last time out there is every indication that the Rhinos will progress here.
Prior to that game Hull lost to Catalans and with Leeds winning the last two cup meetings between the sides everything points to a win for the Super League leaders.
St Helens to beat Widnes @ 1/6
Saints may have lost to Castleford last time out but that defeat ended a four-game winning streak and a return to victorious ways looks likely against a Vikings side that has lost three on the bounce.
The hosts took a narrow 40-38 win in this competition back in 2012 and with Widnes losing 10 of their last 12 games on the road a repeat of that outcome appears most likely here.
