Super League injury news: Star men set for scans as two teams suffer double blows

Another fantastic round of Super League action has been and gone.

It all started as Wigan Warriors succumbed to a surprising second defeat in their opening four games to start the season losing to the unbeaten Catalans Dragons 18-10 in front of a string crowd despite the snow.

Catalans were joined at the Super League summit by Warrington Wolves who beat Hull KR on Friday night to make it four wins from four.

The big story on Friday was the stunning win from Leigh Leopards who rallied late to come back from 12-0 down to beat Champions St Helens 20-12. It was the second defeat in a row for the World Champions and it came in front of a buzzing Leigh Sports village.

Credit the four West Yorkshire clubs who played on Friday despite the snow in the area. Leeds beat Wakefield 26-0, Trinity haven’t scored in three games. This game recorded the best attendance of the weekend despite the freezing temperatures.

Elsewhere in Huddersfield, in Castleford’s first game after the departure of Lee Radford, the Tigers were soundly beaten.

That was the case in Hull on Saturday as Hull FC were thrashed 60-14 by Salford in front of a big crowd.

A good weekend of rugby but it wasn’t good for some teams with injuries.

It didn’t look good for Willie Isa whose cut was one of the bloodiest we’ve seen.

Meanwhile, Lee Gaskell (pec) and Ash Handley (ankle) are set for scans after Leeds Rhinos beat Wakefield.

Samisoni Langi picked up a head knock in the same game which is the same fate suffered by Alex Sutcliffe as Castleford lost to Huddersfield. That game saw the Giants loss two key men.
