UK CHALLENGE CUP QUARTER FINAL

WARRINGTON WOLVES VS ST HELENS SAINTS

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 19, 2.30 PM, AJ BELL STADIUM, MANCHESTER

Last years’ Finalists do battle in the Quarter Final this year showing that no two competitions are they same in Rugby League, as the white-hot Saints take on Warrington in what is sure to be a classic encounter.  The last match St Helens played was back in the Super League on the 11th and they were good enough to take the win against a lively KR outfit, by 1 point, to keep their position atop the table via percentages, level with Wigan and Warrington.  The Wolves played the day prior and beat Castleford by 2 points, leaving it clear that we are in for a fine match of 2 teams that are in form here, suitable for any stage of the competition.  Near perfect conditions awaits for this double header, in Manchester, the first visit there since the resumption, without crowds.

26-year old Saint, Mark Percival returns to play Centre for this clash, adding a lively option out wide to test the Wolves defenders, but has not played since picking up a muscular injury a month ago.  His inclusion means there is no place for Matty Costello in the side, while Batchelor also drops out, as young Lewis Dodd is given an opportunity, probably from the bench.  Makinson is serving game 4 of the 5-game ban he picked up rendering him still unavailable.  Plenty of regulars who have been isolating, are returning for Warrington, leaving them near full strength for this marquee match.  Players to watch for Warrington are Austin, Mike Cooper, Latu and Mamo to named just a few, as they have a very strong team fielded for this match.

Lachlan Coote the former Cowboy has been in superb form for St Helens of late, while veteran and club legend James Graham too has shown why he was bought back, leading the Forwards admirably.  Last match between these two stellar teams came in February in the 2nd round of the Super League, when Warrington shut the Saints out 19-0, though as Steve Price the Warrington coach admits, St Helens are the benchmark side in England.  Last year the glory went to Warrington as they won the Final mentioned above 18-4, after a dominant 12-4 opening stanza.  St Helens are $1.61 favourites for this clash with a predicted margin of less than a try, while the Wolves are $2.30 chances of advancing to the Semis.  What a match we are in for!

PREDICTION: St Helens to exact a little revenge winning by 8.

BETTING TIP: $2.62 for the Saints to win by 1-12 is nice, if you fancy a Wolves win though they are $3.50 in the same market.
