Super League stars face nervous disciplinary wait

We have had another big weekend in the Betfred Super League with Leeds Rhinos and Hull KR meeting in a huge play-off clash, Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves meeting in a vital clash in the top four, St Helens and Catalans Dragons met in a massive game in the top three.

There were some big games at the bottom of the league. Wakefield Trinity went over to Huddersfield Giants on Friday night and the result of that game would always factor into the meeting at the MKM Stadium between Hull FC and Castleford Tigers.

It was a big game for Hull FC too as they looked to sustain their momentum after the derby win and hoping to keep the play-off push going.

On Sunday there was a meeting between two top teams with Leigh Leopards and Salford Red Devils in the play-off race.

But the action started on Thursday in a game described as a Grand Final dress rehearsal by some as league leaders Catalans Dragons edged Super League and World Champions St Helens in a controversial affair.

On Friday night Hull KR broke Leeds hearts with a drop goal from debutant and NRL starlet Brad Schneider in golden point.

Wigan meanwhile helped their hopes for the top two defeating Warrington who remain outside the top four and Huddersfield defeated Wakefield.

Saturday saw Castleford miss the chance to move four points clear of their West Yorkshire rivals in the relegation battle.

Meanwhile on Sunday, Leigh edged Salford 24-22 in a great contest.

As we all know today is the day players nervously wait for disciplinary. Well you will be pleased to know that the vast majority of games were squeaky clean compared to recent weeks with no cards shown this weekend.

There is a concern over Romain Navarrete after a nasty high tackle on Jonny Lomax on Thursday night.

There was a minor altercation between Brad O’Neill and Paul Vaughan but it would be very surprising if either found themselves in hot water over it with the penalty being branded as “shocking” by Jon Wilkin on Sky Sports.

There was also a minor scuffle at between Salford and Leigh players.

Around this time Jack Ormondroyd was penalised for his tackle but spared a yellow card.
