Challenge Cup holders St Helens marched on to the quarter-finals thanks to a 44-6 win over Whitehaven in front of a bumper crowd at the Recreation Ground.
An impressive crowd of almost 5,000 saw the Super League champions travel up to Cumbria to take on Whitehaven.
It was a valiant effort from part-timers Haven, but Saints were just too strong in the end. Kristian Woolf’s side ran in eight tries, with Kyle Amor scoring against his former club.
Hull enjoyed a big 58-12 win over part-time Championship club Sheffield at Featherstone. The Black and Whites ran in 11 tries, with Connor Wynne getting a hat-trick and Jake Connor bagging a brace.
Catalans Dragons survived a scare from Championship high-flyers Featherstone. The Rovers led 14-8 at one point thanks to a double from Joey Leilua, but the French side turned it around to clinch a 27-14 in Perpignan.
Hull KR were made to work for the 24-18 win by Championship outfit Leigh. Frankie Halton, Mikey Lewis, Matt Parcell and Matty Storton got on the scoresheet for Tony Smith’s side.
Castleford won impressively at Leeds 40-16. The Tigers were brilliant in attack against a woeful Rhinos. Greg Eden grabbed two tries for Castleford, whilst Gareth O’Brien racked up a tally of 16 points.
