Super League stars face nervous disciplinary wait

Round 24 was always going to be huge with a big game between Leeds Rhinos and Hull FC, Wigan Warriors meeting play off hopefuls Salford Red Devils and Warrington Wolves meeting Castleford Tigers.

On Friday night there were three games as Leigh Leopards hosted Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR and Catalans Dragons meeting in a game between play off hopefuls and the side sitting top of the league going into the game.

Meanwhile, the action concluded on Sunday with a meeting between Super League Champions St Helens and bottom club Wakefield Trinity.

But turning to the start of the action, Hull KR engineered a shock result at Craven Park to celebrate their own retro round.

They welcomed a wounded Catalans Dragons side to Craven Park who had been battered by Wigan last week. They remarkably lost two games in a row as Jack Walker stood out.

That gave Wigan Warriors the opportunity to take top spot with a win over Salford Red Devils and they took it with Jai Field and Bevan French starring.

The big story was between Leigh Leopards and Huddersfield Giants where after 48 minutes Leigh led 16-12 but the game was stopped by a floodlight failure and would be abandoned and resumed from the 49th minute on Sunday.

Before that, a Sam Lisone hat trick gave Leeds Rhinos a crucial win over Hull FC all but ending their hopes of play off rugby whilst maintaining Leeds’.

Warrington Wolves meanwhile ran in 11 tries against Castleford Tigers as George Williams, Matt Dufty and Danny Walker ran riot to plunge Cas into relegation trouble.

Then on Sunday, Leigh completed their win over Huddersfield with a 34-16 triumph.

Meanwhile, St Helens defeated Wakefield Trinity 32-16.

After all this action with the season coming to a close, players will be nervous about any bans.

There were three players who picked up yellow cards over the weekend. Manu Ma’u, King Vuniyayawa and Jacob Miller will all be nervous.

Miller was sin binned for a reckless tackle and Bevan French was guilty of something similar so could also nervous.

Turning back to Warrington and Cas, there were a few high tackles and a potential trip that could be looked at.
