St Helens v Catalans Dragons Preview
St Helens welcome the Catalans Dragons from the South of France to the North West of England for a game that has the potential to be a must watch and for a game that has a great history of big moments.
Both of these 2 big spending teams are packed full of quality but whilst the hosts are almost the epitome of consistency, the Dragons are almost the complete opposite as you can never be quite sure of what you will get.
That adds an extra element of unpredictability to the match as the Dragons are one of the few teams who know that when on form they can match Saints, but even the players probably don’t know just how they will perform on any given match day until the whistle blows.
When you add in the fact that this is a knock-out play-off semi-final match up with the season on the line for both sides and you have all of the ingredients you need for a match of the season contender.
The Totally Wicked Stadium is host of this game and is has been the home of Saints ever since 2012.
The modern stadium is one of the biggest and best rugby specific stadiums in the northern hemisphere and offers all that you would expect from a modern stadium.
Unfortunately there will once again be no fans in attendance for this must win game.

Score Prediction Coming Soon
Despite these 2 giants of the game only matching up against each other for a relatively small amount of time, there have already been a number of big match occasions that have taken place between the 2 sides.
Arguably the biggest occasion featuring the 2 sides came in the 2007 Challenge Cup final when Saints defended their trophy by defeating Les Dracs 30 points to 8.
Not only was that the first Challenge Cup final to be held at the new Wembley Stadium but it was also the first time a French team had reached the final.
In 2021, the 2 sides also made history at Old Trafford when the 2 sides met in the Super League Grand Final and whilst it was Saints who once again came away with the trophy and the glory, most of the headlines were about the Dragons who became the first French club to reach the Grand Final of the Super League.
