UK CHALLENGE CUP ROUND OF 16

SWINTON LIONS VS WARRINGTON WOLVES

SUNDAY APRIL 11, 12.30 PM, HEYWOOD ROAD, SWINTON

With 6 of the slots filled in the quarter final bracket of the Challenge Cup, just two games remain to be sorted on Sunday, starting with a trip to Swinton for the strong Warrington team, that should win this in a canter.  Warrington were stunned in week one by the Tigers a fortnight ago, but bounced back to their usual selves against newly promoted Leigh, winning 44-12.  They are $5 chances to win another piece of silverware, which is 2nd favourite behind just St Helens, while Swinton are $1001, needless to say, it would be a stunning turn of events if they advanced here.  Swinton were unable to win their round 1 Championship match against Oldham, going down 28-20.  Cold crisp weather awaits, but at least it is clear, though a southerly breeze may make for tricky conditions for these players.

Warrington have trained well all week, and have no fresh injury concerns, after their big win against Leigh last weekend, and will field a similar squad to the one that had no problems.  One inclusion is likely to be Sitaleki Akauola, who is itching to make his first appearance of 2021 after proving his fitness on the training paddock in recent days, having not played for Warrington since 2018.  Greg Inglis is still not fit enough to make his Warrington debut, but surely it will come in next couple of weeks.  Swinton don’t look to have a very strong side currently, as only a few of their players have experience in the Super League, such as Waterworth and Gregson, once Wigan juniors, so this may be an ugly learning experience for the club.

Swinton do have a record of hoisting the Challenge Cup, when they famously beat Warrington 5-3, in 1928, but have not featured much in the cup in the ensuing 90 or so years.  Warrington have hoisted the trophy 9 times, with their most recent win coming in 2019, and they will be confident of going very deep into the fixtures this season again.  Warrington are $1.006 favourites, yes that is 2 zeros, meaning just over half a cent per dollar betted, profit, while they are handicapped at a whopping 40.5 points, while Swinton are $19, leaving it obvious that they are little or no chance.

PREDICTION: Warrington in a big score by a few dozen.

BETTING TIP: $1.90 for the Wolves to win with that 40.5-point handicap seems legitimate.
