Super League stars face nervous disciplinary wait

This weekend we have seen some huge games especially on Saturday as Warrington Wolves claimed a crucial win over Hull FC in the fight for the top six as Wigan Warriors laid down a marker in France before on Sunday we saw Leeds Rhinos and Huddersfield Giants collide.

In that game, Leeds’ play-off hopes were hurt by a defeat to Huddersfield as they went down 21-12 in a game that had no second half tries.

The action though started on Friday night. On Sky Sports we saw a huge clash between Hull KR and Leigh Leopards in a Challenge Cup Final rematch.

Hull KR had lost to Leigh three times this season including in golden point at Wembley in heart breaking fashion.

This was a must win game for the Robins against the fourth place Leopards and they laid down a huge marker battering Leigh 52-10 with Ryan Hall, Mikey Lewis and Shaun Kenny-Dowall all starring.

Elsewhere, Super League and World Champions St Helens stormed to victory over Castleford Tigers.

They led 30-0 at halftime before going on to secure a 34-4 win over the Tigers who were much more competitive in the second half.

The defeat wasn’t as detrimental as Cas may have feared with Wakefield also beaten and nilled by Salford Red Devils as Ryan Brierley impressed for Paul Rowley’s side.

A great weekend of rugby, the focus today will shift onto the disciplinary and potential bans so does anyone have anything to fear.

On Friday night there were a couple of tip tackles such as one from Edwin Ipape which could be looked at as well as a late hit from Shaun Kenny-Dowell and a high tackle from Tom Briscoe.

Over at Hull FC, there were complaints about late hits from Warrington Wolves whilst Andre Savelio may have been guilty of a tip tackle of his own.

As for Wigan, Liam Farrell could be in trouble for a tip tackle and there may be a concern over contact with the head from Jake Wardle and Liam Byrne in the second half.

One player yellow carded was Sam Royale but this was a professional foul and thus he will likely avoid a ban.

Looking at Sunday’s action, there could be action taken for the late hit on Harry Newman as well as against Sam Hewitt after he was yellow carded for his role in a fight just before the break.

There could be trouble as well for Sam Lisone as he barged through and caught Sam Halsall with his elbow.

There was also another late hit as well.
