After some big games between Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves, Wigan Warriors and Hull FC, Wakefield Trinity and Castleford Tigers as well as the top of the table clash between Leigh Leopards and Catalans Dragons.
It was a big weekend in the context of the season and today could be a big day too.
As always Monday sees the Match Review Panel meet to review the weekend’s games for ban worthy offences and one side could have a real worry on their hands.
After their clash with Leigh, they could five bans for four players.
For late hits, Mike McMeeken, Julian Bousquet and Michael McIlorum. McIlorum could also face punishment for his dangerous on Rob Mulhern but mitigating factors could save him.
Mitchell Pearce could also be in trouble for a high tackle.
In terms of the game, a late hit from Mike McMeeken and a yellow card saw Leigh nail an early penalty to make it 2-0.
Then, after a Sam Tomkins blunder, an inside ball from John Asiata allowed Tom Amone to tear through and score. He rounded the cover defence for a great try.
Catalans Dragons definitely needed to score next and they came up with a response after Zak Hardaker gave away a penalty. Mitchell Pearce stabbed a kick behind and touched down himself to score.
The Dragons were now on top and stormed 12-8 ahead with a try from Paul Seguier. A great set play from the Dragons with attacking players doubling up on defenders allowing Seguier to carve through.
But then another yellow card for Catalans, this time to Michael McIlorum, paved the way for Leigh to score with Ben Nakubuwai burrowing over from the penalty allowing Ben Reynolds to nail a penalty and make it 14-12.
Then a mess at the back nearly led to a try for Wigan Warriors bound Adam Keighran after a ball bounced off a defender but he was unable to ground the loose ball.
But shortly after Catalans took the lead again when Hull KR bound Tyrone May kicked behind for Tom Davies to score.
May was in the mood in the second half as he dummied, bounced off Ben Reynolds and carved inside wrong footing Ben Nakubuwai who was missing his boot.
The match was settled with another try for the Leopards as Manu Ma’u grounded another kick.
