Super League Round Up : Round 23


Results from the weekends Super League action.

Starting on Friday with a good result for Wigan thrashing Hull 66-6. The Warriors, coming from the back of 3 straight defeats consolidate 5th place as we start to look towards the business end of the season.

Friday@rsquo;s other fixture saw Hull KR send the visiting French fans from Catalan home on the worse side of a 30-16 defeat. A good result for the KR fans with the team putting in a good attacking and defensive performance. One notable absentee was Paul Cooke who rumors are abounding this week will be leaving the club.

The one Saturday fixture saw Warrington proving too good for Leeds with a 22-12 win at the Halliwell Jones. A good result for Warrington and disappointment for Leeds at missing a chance to reclaim the top spot.

The remaining 3 games on Sunday saw Cas rooting themselves to the bottom of the table with a 40-14 defeat at the Jungle at the hands of Huddersfield. 14-14 at half time Michael Korkidas receiving a yellow card gave Huddersfield an advantage in the second half which they took scoring 4 tries. There were also second half yellow cards for Daniel Griffin and Cas player Ryan McGoldrick for fighting.

A good day in London saw Harlequins get a much needed 36 – 24 win over Bradford. Quins securing a 22-0 half time lead before dropping to a 24-22 losing position then dramatically recovering to win. Quins winger Will Sharp ran in a hat trick to record their first win since 14 June against Leeds.

Lastly a strong St Helens performance against Wakefield sees them 2 clear of Leeds at the top of the table. 30-0 up at half time Saints never looked back and 19 year old Kyle Eastmond scored a beauty of a try sprinting 80 metres to give Saints a somewhat comfortable second half.
