The race for Old Trafford continues as just eight clubs remain in the hunt after 12 began the journey back in February.
Here, we start to separate the men from the boys and below is the preview for week one, find out if your team will be successful.
Castleford Tigers Vs St Helens
First up sees Super League title favourites and league leaders Castleford Tigers play host to the inconsistent St Helens.
Castleford are unchanged from their win in France two weeks ago, whereas Saints have left out Luke Douglas and Luke Thompson and in come Matty Smith and Thomas Lee, back from injury.
The potentials of a tough clash here as the Tigers are the team to beat but are certainly up against it as they face an in-form St Helens side.
Castleford have maintained all of their pivots, which is crucial and having an unchanged squad and playing at home should defuse any signs of pressure.
Therefore, you can only expect them at their best; Luke Gale and Ben Roberts causing plenty of trouble with ball in hand as well as their kicking games.
Then of course Grant Millington, Mike McMeeken and Jesse Sene-Lefao up front with their sheer brute force as well as ball handling skill.
Their attack is brilliant, as is their defence, meaning the Saints have to be on top of their game from the word go.
Looking at their squad, Smith returning is crucial but the main men to look at are Jonny Lomax, James Roby and Theo Fages.
Their speed, side-stepping and kicking games has helped the Saints back into form but after a week off, can they continue such momentum against the Tigers?
Their forwards will be needed to but a positive here is possessing Alex Walmsley, the top metre maker after the regular season.
Others such as Kyle Amor and Dominique Peyroux, their contributions will be crucial, they’ll need to be enthusiastic from the off to match any form of threat the Tigers will pose.
So, both sides have talented pivots, size and speed out wide as well as up front, but on home advantage and less transition to their squad, the Tigers should prevail.
After all, Daryl Powell has already expressed eagerness for the League Leaders Shield and another win brings them that step closer, if not there already.
It’ll be hard fought but this time around, the Tigers should see it through, but never write off the Saints, remember that!
