Grand Final Winner
Hull FC were the favourite amongst our writers to win the 2017 Grand Final at Old Trafford, receiving 38% of the votes. The Black & Whites lost in the semi-final to the eventual Champions Wigan in 2016, who only received 16% of the votes, the same as their local rivals Saints.
However, could it be Warrington’s year? Well their our second favourites with 30% of the votes. Our writers aren’t expecting a resurgence from Leeds or any other major upsets this year, as only last year’s top 4 received votes from our writers.
Challenge Cup Winner
Finally, could 2017 be Castleford’s year to win the Challenge Cup for the first time since 1986? The Tigers are the favourites for our writers with 38% of the vote. Wigan come in second with 23% while holders Hull FC and runners-up Warrington both received 16%.
However could there be a major cup upset on the cards? Salford are big outsiders with the bookies but they got a slender 7% in our vote.
