Castleford v Leeds – Grand Final
Castleford Tigers start favourites when they meet Yorkshire rivals Leeds Rhinos in the Super League Grand Final on Saturday. Mr Green has an enticing Price Boost for the season finale, whilst the Sports Gent is interested too, as the Tigers make it into his weekly tip.
It looks set to be an enthralling encounter at Old Trafford. Castleford Tigers have been the team of the season, finishing 10 points clear of Leeds in the table with a points difference of +391 (Rhinos difference was +76). But if any team know how to get over the line and win the big games, it’s Leeds. If they can find that extra level again and upset the odds, they’d give club stalwarts Rob Burrow and Danny McGuire a fairy-tale sendoff.
The Man of Steel Boost
There have been many chapters to Castleford’s story this year but perhaps the most gripping has been the journey of Luke Gale. Just three weeks after having emergency appendix removal surgery, the scrum-half returned to action in the semi-final to score a try, last minute penalty equaliser and the match-winning drop goal. To top it off, he was named Super League Man of Steel too.

The Sports Gent’s tip:
Cas Tigers, Notts County, Shrewsbury and Macclesfield Town = 11/1+ quad.
