Men's Super-8: Hawks and Wolves aiming to open up gap at top

Warrington Wolves and NEM Hawks will both be hoping to go clear at the top of the men’s Super-8 table this weekend.

Wolves face a trip to the Copper Box on Sunday to play London GD, while Hawks entertain Nottingham.

Warrington currently lead the table on goal difference, although they have played a game less than North-West rivals Hawks. They have lost just once this season, but were held by Olympia in their last match. Defending champions GD are on a good run, having won their last three matches. Throw-off at the Copper Box is at 13.30.

Hawks are unbeaten in three matches, although their match, against Cambridge ended all square. Nottingham have won just twice all season, both victories coming against bottom side Coventry Sharks. Throw-off at Sutton Bonnington on Saturday is at 14.30.

West London Eagles host Cambridge hoping to halt a losing run that has extended to four matches. Cambridge are unbeaten in two matches and know they will climb to fourth if they get a better result than London GD this weekend. Throw-off at Sporthouse on Saturday is at 15.00 and is part of a great double bill which sees the Super-7 match between the two teams get underway at 13.00.

Third-place Olympia head to the West Midlands to play Sharks. Olympia have won three and drawn one in their last four matches. Sharks are looking for their first win of the campaign. Throw-off at the Coventry Sports Centre on Sunday is at 17.30.
