Super League Restart Day Roundup

Super League returned to action on Sunday with a double-header at Headingley, and not without its fair share of talking points.

St Helens arrested a run of two straight defeats, with a comprehensive 34-6 victory against Catalans Dragons.

Two tries from Lachlan Coote, and other efforts from James Bentley, Zeb Taia and Tommy Makinson put Saints 28-0 up just before the hour mark.

The Dragons then pulled one back through James Maloney, in what was the only real mistake at the back from the champions.

But Saints were able to rubber-stamp their victory as Alex Walmsley got over.

Leeds leave it late to beat Huddersfield

Leeds Rhinos came from 26-6  down after 65 minutes to beat Huddersfield Giants in the final game of the day.

The Giants took the lead through Louis Senior, before Leeds hit back through Konrad Hurrell.

Huddersfield then threatened to run away with it, as Darnell McIntosh scored a hat-trick either side of half-time, and Senior added his second.

Leeds were also down to 12 men, as Ash Handley had been sent to the sin bin for a show of dissent.

But back came the Rhinos, as tries from Luke Gale, Alex Mellor and a second from Hurrell levelled up the scores for Leeds.

The match then entered Golden Point, and after a missed attempt by Lee Gaskell, Gale then stepped up for Leeds and won the match.
