Challenge Cup Quarter Finals 2021
The Dragons take on Warrington in what looks all set to be a great match up.
The 2 sides met just a couple of weeks back in a game that Warrington have seemingly kick started their season on the back of their win but the Dragons will know just what they are in for in this one.
These 2 look evenly matched this season and are set to be the best of the rest behind Wigan and Saints, so both will be targeting the cup for a chance of success and in a game that will be close throughout, it will come down to the team who create and take the most chances and that is just what Warrington have been doing since their win in France and the changes they have made to their line-up.
We are ging to back them for the win but this is a game that we would not be surprised by a win for either side.
Prediction: Warrington Wolves by 4
Saints have been the dominant force this season and they are showing few signs of ending their undefeated run although the last couple of opening 40 minutes have seen them struggled by their own high standards.
If Huddersfield are to have a chance of pulling off a shock win, they will need to start fast and really push Saints but even then they will need St Helens to be on an off day, and they do not come around too often.
Prediction: St Helens by 10
Kick Off: 14:30
Venue: AJ Bell Stadium

There are of course another issue other than the match surrounding this game after a dreadful alleged act of racism last time out and sadly that will be the focus of the build up and the focus of free-to-air national television on the BBC.
That disgraceful moment will know take away from all of the positives of the great game last week and all of the possibilities of another blockbuster this week but hopefully the players can quickly change that when the whistle blows and we can all enjoy the great rugby.
Hull showed last week that they have what it takes to take on the top dogs but the Warriors also showed that winning mentality and the ability to grind out result.
We predict a similar outcome this week as whilst we believe the game will close throughout, that extra bit of quality and belief from the Warriors should see them home, although we certainly would not be shocked by a win for the black and white side of the city of Hull.
Prediction: Wigan Warriors by 4
Kick Off: 17:00
Venue: Headingley Stadium
Salford pushed Castleford hard last weekend as the 2 also met in the league but Cas always had that extra touch of quality and that is how ewe see this game going as well.
Whilst Salford will make things difficult and will stay in the game, we expect Castleford to create and take more opportunities and to pull away to a win in the last quarter.
Prediction: Castleford Tigers by 10
