Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…
Just two points separated Warrington and Castleford in the end, though Warrington’s slide was alarming towards the end of the regular campaign.
The Wire lost five of their final six Super League matches yet managed to grab a shock victory against St Helens in the Challenge Cup Final during the midst of the downturn in form.
Warrington’s run of results is a concern, but they have the know-how to find a way through in the big games.
They have negotiated numerous knockout rounds to reach three final in their most recent competitions (2018 Challenge Cup, 2018 Super League, 2019 Challenge Cup) and will produce another big display here.
Prediction: Warrington Wolves win
