The opening round of the 2023 Super League season has been and gone.
It all got underway at Warrington where the Wolves stunned Leeds Rhinos with a sensational first half that left them 30-0 ahead after tries from Matt Dufty, Daryl Clark, Josh Thewlis and Danny Walker.
Second half tries from James Harrison and Greg Minikin concluded a statement win in front of a home crowd that was given optimism by the win.
On Friday Wakefield came up short against an injury hit Catalans side as Tom Johnstone came back to haunt his former side.
Credit to them for their crowd as they only have half a stadium to work with at present.
Elsewhere, Leigh put on a show against Salford Red Devils both on and off the field. They came up short of the win and their record attendance of 9,012.
Hull KR were excellent at home against Wigan Warriors as they beat the cup holders in front of a jam packed Craven Park. However, their attendance wasn’t officially announced.
Despite no official attendance reported from the club, it’s been reported elsewhere that Craven Park saw 10,029 fans watch the Robins defeat Wigan.
Their rivals’ attendance was confirmed and was the best of the round as Hull FC clung on against Castleford Tigers who battled back to 32-30 after trailing 32-6.
