Well, that’s another weekend of Super League action done and dusted and what a weekend it was!
It began on Thursday night with Hull KR just about overcoming Toulouse Olympique despite an impressive and hard-fought showing from the French side who led for most of the game before going down 22-16.
Friday night saw Huddersfield Giants host Hull FC and they too had to rely on two late scores from Danny Levi to eventually get rid of their Black and White opponents who were up 16-6 at one stage.
The same evening saw Wigan Warriors take on Warrington Wolves, and, whilst Daryl Powell’s men went toe to toe with Matt Peet’s side for most of the night, Wigan blew the score out to 32-6 by the end of the night.
Move forward to Sunday and Castleford Tigers were let down by conversions against St Helens live on Channel 4 as the West Yorkshire club went down 20-12 in the first of three Sunday games.
Then it was the turn of Leeds Rhinos to put in-form Salford Red Devils to the sword in a big 34-14 win that underlined their consistent improvement under new boss Rohan Smith whilst Wakefield Trinity failed to exploit their home advantage against Catalans Dragons. The French side toiled after some horrendous injuries, but managed to cling on for a vital 20-16 victory.
