Well, another round of Super League is done and dusted and what a weekend it was!
Starting on Friday night, Castleford Tigers were in an incredible defensive mood as they whipped top two hopefuls Huddersfield Giants in a 26-18 victory.
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon where Leeds Rhinos inflicted a quite brilliant 62-16 hammering of Hull FC on the Black and Whites’ own soil before Catalans Dragons sneaked past St Helens in one of the games of the Super League season live on Sky Sports.
Toulouse Olympique and Hull KR finished things off on Saturday night with the French club registering a superb 28-6 win over the East Yorkshire side.
Moving on to Sunday and Salford Red Devils managed a stunning comeback win over Warrington Wolves whose woes under Daryl Powell continue, whilst Wakefield Trinity were put to the sword in a fine performance from the Wigan Warriors who cut the gap to St Helens at the top of the Super League table to just two points.
