THE PREDICTION

Leigh Centurions finally got off the mark in Super League as they defeated Salford Red Devils for their maiden win of the campaign at the 17th time of asking. They will hope to build on that but they face an almighty challenge here as they go up against defending champions St. Helens. The hosts responded to a rare defeat against Castleford Tigers by seeing off local rivals Wigan Warriors in comfortable fashion and they should prove to be far too good for the Centurions in this contest with Saints able to win by at least 20 points.
