Well, that’s another round of Super League completed as we head into the business end of the season.
Proceedings started on Friday night when St Helens cast aside the Huddersfield Giants with ease in a 25-0, but Saints’ bitter rivals Wigan Warriors took the limelight with a huge 60-0 hammering of Hull FC.
Wind the clock forward to Saturday and Castleford Tigers were irrepressible in the heat at the Jungle with an important 35-22 triumph over Warrington Wolves, with Leeds Rhinos going down in the south of France to Toulouse Olympique in what proved to have massive consequences at the bottom of the Super League table.
That’s because Wakefield Trinity’s defeat to Hull KR this afternoon consigned Trinity to the bottom of the league whilst Salford Red Devils inflicted a surprise 32-6 defeat over Catalans Dragons.
But, just which Super League stars do we, Serious About Rugby League, believe could be up before the Disciplinary Match Review Panel today?
St Helens vs Huddersfield Giants
Jack Welsby (St Helens) – late hit
Sione Mata’utia (St Helens) – picking up injured player
Morgan Knowles (St Helens) – late hit/arm in face
Chris McQueen (Huddersfield Giants) – high tackle
Olly Russell (Huddersfield Giants) – spear tackle
Wigan Warriors vs Hull FC
Scott Taylor (Hull FC) – dangerous contact
Caslteford Tigers vs Warrington Wolves
Cheyse Blair (Castleford Tigers) – dangerous hit
Toulouse Olympique vs Leeds Rhinos
James Bentley (Leeds Rhinos) – dangerous contact
Hull KR vs Wakefield Trinity
Jorge Taufua (Wakefield Trinity) – hitting out at play the ball
If those listed above are found guilty, Welsby, Mata’utia and Knowles could miss St Helens’ fixture against Wakefield Trinity on Sunday, with Jorge Taufua potentially missing that game too.
Scott Taylor could potentially miss Hull FC’s home clash against Castleford Tigers on Friday night, as could Cheyse Blair following his dangerous hit on Warrington’s Josh Thewlis on Saturday.
Huddersfield pair Chris McQueen and Olly Russell could miss the Giants’ away clash against Catalans Dragons if found guilty, too.
