Super League moves into April and with respect, hopefully better weather will befall all of the action.
Regardless, the regular season reaches the end of its first third as well as inching closer to the hectic Easter Period.
Below are the previews of every Super League fixture for week seven as some clubs aim to remain at the top as well as get their campaigns up and running, ending their wait, even at this late stage.
Salford Red Devils Vs St Helens
First up is a battle between two of the form clubs in the competition as Salford tussle it with St Helens at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Salford are without Junior Sa’u for the fixture, leading them to recall Jake Bibby from dual-registration with Halifax.
The Saints have made a change themselves as pivot Jonny Lomax returns, with Adam Swift sitting the game out through injury.
An interesting clash and a close one to call so credit to Sky Sports for selecting this one.
That being said, it could turn out to be a thrashing as this one had had its history of such results on either side in recent seasons.
The pivots will be important and both have a healthy selection.
Gareth O’Brien’s kicking game has to be top notch on top of Robert Lui’s passing game and Michael Dobson’s general leadership.
St Helens welcome back Lomax, meaning they have some handling skills as well as the latter’s side-stepping and kicking game to choose from.
With Theo Fages and Matty Smith, who specialise in that department, the Saints will only improve in their form.
However, Salford have been the surprise package and here, they look good money for another win as they strive to be the competition’s dark horses.
They had an easier ride out last time and this will be the decisive factor between the two, having extra energy reserves.
Saints will produce another strong effort but it will be Salford to edge this home.
