Yes, this weekend is not only about the race to the semi-finals continuing but perhaps settling some scores as this weekend sees some fierce rivals tackle one or another!
But who will come out on top?! Who will take another step towards the all-important semi-finals?! And who will enter Wembley with maximum confidence?! Find out below!
Castleford Tigers Vs Wakefield Trinity RLFC
First up sees another historic clash as Castleford Tigers take to the field against arch-rivals Wakefield Trinity, where silverware is at stake.
As we know, previous fixtures involving these two have been at the other end of the table but this time, the Tigers are 80 minutes away from the League Leaders Shield, with Wakefield looking to spoil the party and secure their first ever top four position!
The squads see Castleford arguably have their strongest possible selection available, with Greg Eden returning from injury.
Wakefield meanwhile are without Joe Arundel and James Hasson due to injury, but incoming are Mason Caton-Brown and Craig Huby respectively.
A fairly tough clash as Castleford face some pressure of getting to lift the Shield in front of their home faithful and to do that, they are against their arch-rivals.
They are resounding favourites but it will be closer than most will perceive.
It’s good that the Tigers have a full strength squad; Ben Roberts and Luke Gale will be full of ideas once more at half-back as they’ve been able to confuse defences with their side-stepping and kick games.
No doubt they’ll combine well with their superb back line; the Michael Shenton and Greg Eden partnership returns after all.
Then of course their adaptable forward pack, as evidenced by last week, any of them are capable of playing anywhere and producing any sorts of form.
So what have Wakefield got to compete with such a formidable squad?
They have a highly talented one themselves that shouldn’t ever be underestimated that’s what!
Kyle Wood has been excellent in recent weeks and having Miller back alongside him really made Trinity tick last week and that momentum could easily continue here.
In their back line, having Caton-Brown back adds extra pace and power in such a position alongside Bill Tupou, Reece Lyne and Ben Jones-Bishop.
Then of course ‘Wakey’ have their own pack in the passionate David Fafita as well as Huby and Anthony England.
Wakefield will be handful but it is hard seeing past another win for the Tigers.
Having home advantage, the extra incentive of silverware at stake will see the Tigers home, as long as they have a ‘Plan B’ prepared in attack rather than always heading down Eden’s wing.
