Wigan Warriors host Salford Red Devils in a battle between second and third respectively in the 2019 Super League play-offs.
The reigning champions produced a solid campaign yet may feel disappointed to have slid 10 points down from last season.
The Cherry and Whites finished second in 2018 – six points adrift of St Helens – but confidently racked up a shut-out win over Castleford Tigers (14-0) in the play-offs and beat Wigan Warriors 12-4 to claim the crown.
Standing in Wigan’s way of another deep play-off run are the Salford Red Devils.
Ian Watson’s side have enjoyed a stunning turnaround from last season when they narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship by way of winning the qualifiers table in 2018.
The Red Devils bounced back with a marvellous campaign in large part down to the unstoppable Jackson Hastings who has recorded 35 assists in the Super League this season, 14 more than the next highest creator.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…
Salford will be the happier of the sides following the campaign.
The Warriors haven’t kicked on from winning the 2018 Super League as they might have hoped, while the Red Devils have been shocked into life – and then some – but their flirtation with relegation.
However, big game experience counts for so much in ties like this.
Neutrals may plump for the Red Devils to continue their immense run, but the Warriors are by no means finished this season and will look to churn out a low-scoring, highly-efficient result at the DW.
Prediction: Wigan Warriors win
