THE PREDICTION

Leigh Centurions were blown away by league leaders Catalans Dragons as they suffered a humiliating 64-0 loss last time out. They will be desperate to put things right here and will believe they can do so against a side that they pushed so close in their previous contest. Hull KR have struggled for form of late with injuries to key personnel proving too much to overcome but they are still in with a shout of making the play-offs. However, they must win here and this could go either way with both teams likely to post a decent total and this should be another high-scoring game in which the Centurions are involved in with over 52.5 likely.
