Busy disciplinary panel expected

This was a huge weekend in the Super League with Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors colliding ahead of a major meeting between Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils whilst Castleford Tigers took a huge step towards safety defeating Hull FC.

This came as their biggest rivals Hull KR claimed a vital win over Huddersfield Giants in the play off race and in one of the best games of the season Leigh Leopards pushed the Champions St Helens to their limit.

Wakefield Trinity meanwhile may have reached their limit in Super League losing to Catalans Dragons.

In fact the action started at Belle Vue where a valiant Wakefield fell 18-0 down. Though they finished with a flourish, they went on to suffer defeat 18-10.

Elsewhere on Friday night, Castleford Tigers stormed to victory over Hull FC helped by a drop goal and a brilliant brace of tries from the young Jason Qareqare.

A defeat for Hull FC but their rivals Hull KR further cemented their play off spot as they defeated Huddersfield Giants to end their own play off hopes.

But the main event on Friday night was indeed the clash between Leigh Leopards and St Helens which was one of the games of the season and showed that both of them can compete when it comes to the end of the season.

Saturday though saw the big game but it was something of a squash match as Wigan Warriors ran in nine tries against Leeds Rhinos with Jake Wardle scoring a hat trick to humiliate the Rhinos and hand them one of their worst ever defeats.

Lastly on Sunday, Warrington were beaten in golden point extra time.

But as always today the focus will be on disciplinary and after so many yellow cards this weekend it will be a busy day for the Match Review Panel.

One yellow card went the way of Jake Connor for pushing out whilst teammate Jack Ashworth was sin binned for a late hit.

Meanwhile, Sam Eseh was sin binned at Belle Vue as well whilst Davy Litten was also in trouble at the Jungle.

All of this means it will be a busy panel.
