Super League-winning coach Ian Millward is backing Catalan to have too much strength at home to Widnes on Saturday.

Catalan (-10) v Widnes (Saturday, 1430)

Catalans are coming into some form at the moment and I can see them improving over the next month. Players have returned from injury and are now getting into good match condition. I keep scratching my head about how well Widnes have gone so far, but Catalans have a strong pack of forwards and can cause Widnes some problems defensively. For Catalans, this is a great opportunity to really take the initiative and push on. Louis Anderson is back and he's a quality player, while Leon Pryce has been stepping up his game of late. I feel the hosts will be too big, too strong and too mobile and I take them in this one.

Parramatta Eels (+6) v Sydney Roosters (Saturday, 0835)

The Roosters have been beaten in their last two games but only conceded a total of 17 points in doing so. Their defence has been outstanding and they look very, very close to having a good win. Even though it's only round six, these two have already met - in round two - and Sydney put 50 points on Parramatta that day. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves returns for the Roosters and I take the Premiers to bounce back and cover the start.
