Leigh have struggled in their first season in the BetFred Super League and will be keen to preserve their status for another year.

The Rovers most recently claimed a tight win over Leigh that moved them into fourth position and set a platform for a finals charge.

Championship

Second and fifth spots in the standings are currently separated by just one game, meaning every game is a must win for those jostling for position at the business end of the table. Toulouses loss to Bradford last weekend saw them concede second place to York City Knights and Featherstone could jump the French side into third with an upset victory over Toronto.

Both squads will be quite different for the 2019 installment of what is becoming an exciting rivalry between the two sides. Brian McDermott has begun to settle on what looks to be his best side in recent weeks. The likes of Liam Kay, Ricky Leutele and Gareth OBrien in red-hot point scoring form while Anthony Mullally, Gadwin Springer several others have been rock-solid in defense.

The will know that previous meetings have been close so may take some hope from that but overall i think the away side is just going to be too strong. The away side are just coming into this match at the perfect time, their form has been good of late and with the previous win advantage i really think there going to win this match with ease. The home side are not in the best form and come into this match off the back of home a loss and so confidence will be down.
