The Magic continues at Murrayfield

More Super League action from Murrayfield as day two of this year's Super League roadshow brings another four games, three of them live on your television screens.

Saturday saw three fantastic games from Edinburgh with 26 tries scored at an average of one every nine minutes. Salford ran Harlequins close for much of the opening game before Bradford put in another improved performance to subject Wakefield to their second defeat in two weeks.

The day finished off with a cracking derby game as two local rivals, Wigan and St Helens, clashed with the Warriors coming out as the surprise 38-18 victors.

Tim Pakyurek, William Hill's head trader and one of the pundits on the William Hill Super League podcast alongside league legends Barrie McDermott and Terry O'Connor, predicted every one of the results correctly. Listen to what the chaps have to say about today's games - launch the player

Sunday 12:30 - Huddersfield v Celtic Crusaders

Huddersfield, beaten by Warrington last week, are aiming to put their coach's comments to bed and should inflict a heavy defeat on the Crusaders in the first game of the day. Celtic were leading the game against Castleford for 65 minutes last week and looked good for their first Super League win but came up short. With a lengthy injury list they will struggle to stick within the 14-point handicap the compilers are laying.

Sunday 15:00 - Hull FC v Castleford Tigers

Our former international forwards, and they should know, both feel this is to be Hull's game down to the strength in the pack. It's too close for the compilers to call with the betting being off scratch. Tim, a supposed Airlie Bird, thinks that his local (to where he lives now rather than his roots) team, that he goes to see quite often, Castleford will come up trumps in the Scottish capital city.

Sunday 17:00 - Catalans Dragons v Leeds Rhinos (-10)

Barrie is blinded by his loyalty to the Rhinos and makes this his bet of the week. Terry expects to see a showpiece performance from Leeds after their shock defeat last week now making it five losses out of seven games. So the backlash will be on the Catalans who will struggle if missing key players like Bird and Bosc.

Originally a 10-point handicap, the market is moving in Leeds' favour and they can only be backed at 8/13 with that spread. Even money is available for the Rhinos to win by more than 14 points.

Leeds (-10) - Barrie, Terry and Tim

Sunday 19:00 - Warrington v Hull KR

Tim's game of the week and a fitting finale to a great weekend's Super League sees his beloved Rovers take on a Warrington side that have scored nearly 100 points in their last two games. Tim can't say enough good things about the team from East Hull who have sneaked their way, unnoticed by many, into second spot in the table - and deservedly too.

Warrington's lack of consistency, despite recent wins, make them very difficult to back against a discilpined side marshalled by the omnipresent Michael Dobson.
