Once again the bookie was the only beneficiary last week with the Tigers and Hull FC both letting us down and both on the end of shock results.

This week sees the big one as the Rhinos take on the Storm in the World Club Challenge but there are plenty of other fixtures to get our teeth into.

There are just 26 shares left to take part for the predictions cash prize - so get yours now.

Here are my thoughts on Round 3 of Super League XV;

FC v QUINS

Hull we look to get back to winning ways against a yet again depleted 'Quins side. With pivot Luke Gale ruled out for a while, and a host of others injured, 'Quins have had to throw in the kids. This may be be great for the future, but the present is looking decidedly dodgy. Hull will be desperate to get Sean Long back to organise them and I can see them hammering the 'Quins this weekend.

REDS v. BULLS

I was impressed by Salford on friday, especially in defence. They had a good line, held it well, and Leeds had to resort to kicks in the end. The Bulls were good on friday but the Tigers gave there poorest display of the season so far. Both the Bulls and the Reds are only consistent in there inconsistency and it remains to be seen which side turns up and plays on the night.

SAINTS v. WILDCATS

Saints great win last week should be looked at in context. 8-4 down and they were being battered when a rush of blood by Elima saw the French reduced to 12. Full credit to Saints, they took advantage and romped home to secure the two points. Wakefield were good against Leeds although the Rhinos did their best to help them win it with some shocking handling and passing.

Wakey won at Saints last year and are certainly good enough to repeat the win but I have a feeling the home side will win this one.

WARRIORS v. DRAGONS

Wigan played very well at the Wolves last time out but an injury to Briers swung the game in their favour and it took a Solomona blunder for them to come away with the points. However, they look to have improved out of sight on last years Warriors team.

The Dragons need a win and soon before they become ensconced at the bottom of the table. The dragons big pack can cause trouble but I think Wigan will have to much guile, although it could be close after the Warriors huge effort last week.

TIGERS v. KR

Both these teams got a real tonking last week and both fully deserved it. Rovers were toothless against the Giants and while they have good players they lack classy strike players. Cas were hammered on the right side of defence last week and expect Rovers to target this area. Both teams have a point to prove in what could be a real scrappy affair. Maybe controversial but I fancy rovers for this one.

GIANTS v. WOLVES

Another cracker in store for what will be a 3/4 empty ground on sunday. The Giants were ruthless at Hull while Warrington were unlucky against Wigan, as they probably were the better side on the night. I think wolves have the better pack but the backs for Giants hold the key and if the home forwards can get stuck in I think its another two points for the Giants. Giants by ?.

RHINOS v. STORM

A team out of form against a team who haven't yet played. Should be rubbish and we should all stay at home and keep warm and dry!!!

Except it won't be like that. I fully expect Leeds to give their best display of the season. It might not be full of flowing moves but the pack will tear into the Aussies and it will be a good kick/chase game.

Leeds have Ablett and Donald out but the real loss is Delaney. good in defence his battle with inglis would have been great to watch. It looks as if JJB will be in there and he would be a far better bet than Watkins for me. Whether he can handle Inglis is another matter.

The Storm will have the world class talents of Inglis and Slater for us all to enjoy watching again, but it's their underrated players such as Blair, Hoffman and Lima who really do the hard yards and who give the backs the room to move.

Both teams will be hoping to get through with no injuries and while I will be there cheering the boys on I think the Storm will target the right centre area and come away with the trophy.
