Hull KR v Catalans Dragons

Rugby league - Super League - 15 Feb 19:35

We might only be into round 3 of Super League 2018 but this is a huge game. Two losses from two games for these sides so far, both will be eager to bag the 2 points here in front of the SkySports cameras and get off the mark in 2018.

I'm expecting a tense game with pressure on both sides to get that first win, I think Catalans are the side to handle that pressure best and come out on top here.

Catalans have a squad full of experienced players. The likes of Walsh, Casty, Aiton, Garcia, Bousquet, Duport & Baitieri have all been around for a long time and should handle the pressure with ease.

Luke Walsh, Paul Aiton, Vincent Duport & Fouhad Yaha all return having missed the last game. The first two mentioned are vital cogs in this team. They will bring about an air of calm, they will organise things and give the Catalans direction.

These sides met at the end of last season in the middle eights, here at the KCOM Stadium. Hull KR landed a drop goal to lead 19-8 with just 14 minutes to go, Catalans kept their cool though and bagged two converted tries in the last 10 minutes to win 20-19.

For me that game volumes. Similar squads and a similar amount of pressure to get the win, Catalans could have folded but instead they had the ability and the experience to come back and win.

For me Catalans have the better players and are better as a squad, they showed that when these sides met last year and they have a stronger squad this time too. The returning Luke Walsh should pull the strings here and help his side outsmart Hull KR.

I definitely favour Catalans here and think they should be favourites. Odds of 2.38 for the away side are surprising, I'm happy to try and take advantage by going max stakes.
