Injury Corner: St Helens, Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC and Castleford Tigers sweat over big issues

Well, that’s another week of Super League done and dusted and what a weekend it was!

St Helens and Leeds Rhinos kicked things off on Thursday night with the former thrashing the latter, 42-12.

Wigan Warriors ended up hammering Toulouse Olympique on Friday night, with Warrington Wolves registering a quite bizarre 4-0 win over Hull FC – a game in which no tries were actually scored.

Fast forward to Sunday afternoon and Salford Red Devils inflicted one of the biggest drubbings in Super League history with a 74-10 triumph against Wakefield Trinity.

Huddersfield Giants were far too good for Hull KR, who lost three men to injury within the opening 15 minutes whilst Castleford Tigers had to rely on a Danny Richardson drop goal to finally overcome Catalans Dragons in dramatic circumstances at the Jungle.
