Hull KR v London Broncos (+20) (Sunday 1500)
Everyone is talking about the new partnership of Kris Keating and Travis Burns which really gelled having taken over from Blake Green and Michael Dobson, but the forwards, led by Neville Costigan, have been outstanding - Costigan in particular. The Australians there look like they're really enjoying life at the moment and they were superb last week. I expect them to turn it on for their fans against London, who lack size and pace and can struggle on the road. KR should win and cover.
Wakefield (+16) v Warrington(Sunday 1500)
Some concerning issues for Wakefield at present. They can't seem to put a run of games together whereas Warrington should be absolute buzzing after last week. Ben Westwood's return gave them power and punch and it was a performance which makes you worry for Wakefield, who are fragile mentally and vulnerable. Wolves to win and cover.
Castleford v Widnes (+10) (Sunday 1530)
You have to admire the Tigers, who've scored the second most tries and lead in offloads. Their home record is strong and they continually look like either winning a game or losing only narrowly. The loss of Jon Clarke is a concern and whether or not he plays is very important. Everything for Widnes comes from Kevin Brown, so if he's out the Tigers will win easily. If he's involved, it could be closer than the layers expect and Widnes can stay within touching distance.
