Fans threaten to riot and offer to pay a grand to keep star player after brilliant performance – How social media reacted to last night’s rugby

Last night 2019 Challenge Cup Finalists Warrington and St Helens claimed quarter-final wins. The pair will now be joined by the winners of Hull FC v Wigan and Castleford v Salford in the final four. Both the Wolves and the Saints were run close but both showed the attributes you need to win the cup. Well, that’s my view. How did social media see it?

In the first game of the night, it was Warrington’s defence that saw them claim victory over the Dragons. The Wolves were almost unbreakable and twitter agreed.

The star man for the Wolves was talisman Daryl Clark. He scored twice on the night and was superb.

But perhaps the best thing he did for Warrington fans tonight was downplay the rumours linking him with a move to Gold Coast.

That led to Wolves supporters demanding he get whatever he wants as the club look to keep him in Super League.

He wasn’t the only one getting that kind of treatment. It was extended to teammate Toby King who was also outstanding.

He received widespread praise so much so social media seemed to forget about Greg Inglis on his Challenge Cup debut.

The reigning Super League Champions didn’t have it so easy. Subsequently, many St Helens supporters were simply glad to be in the final four and almost dismissed their team’s performance. They gave respect to the opposition however.

Unsurprisingly the always impressive Regan Grace gained a lot of attention for his magnificent hat-trick and superb performance.

One or two St Helens fans weren’t best pleased with their team’s overall performance however no doubt worrying if their customary Challenge Cup choke will return in the semis.

The Giants deserve credit for their role in a brilliant game and had one or two brilliant performers including the fantastic Aidan Sezer. His performance led to an interesting observation especially with his future up in the air.

With Theo Fages not yet offered a new deal at St Helens, could they make a move for Sezer?
