Round 21 of the 2014 Super League season got underway in dramatic fashion last night, as Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers played out a stunning 24-24 draw. But there is still plenty of action left in the tank this weekend, as six more games take place – with some pivotal games in store.
Bradford’s relegation to the Championship could be confirmed if they lose at Huddersfield, whilst we could yet end the weekend with a new side on top of the tree. Widnes’ place in the top eight will be put to the test again, as the chasing pack continue to breathe down their neck.
