LIVE TEXT: Super League relegation d-day on Friday 13th

It’s the final night of the Super League regular season and four clubs are at risk of relegation. Follow it live with us.


And that’s it! Salford beat Hull KR 17-16 to set up a trip to Wigan next week, with Warrington hosting Castleford.

London’s relegation confirmed.


Warrington lose 26-4 at Leeds, and will now finish fourth in Super League having had second seemingly sewn up only weeks ago.


St Helens win 22-6 at Hull to secure Castleford’s play-off place.


Scratch that. Warrington are now 14-0 down at Leeds, which opens the door for Salford to snatch third. Salford just need to better Warrington’s score by 13 points.


That’s it. London are down. Reece Lyne’s try makes it 18-0. What a season by the Broncos. What a shame it just wasn’t enough.

Results redundant elsewhere, only one to keep an eye on is Hull against St Helens, with Castleford’s play-off spot at risk if Hull can avoid defeat.


Is that the end of the drama? Ryan Hampshire gets his second try and it looks like a tall order for the Broncos from here.


Huddersfield 10-14 Catalans

Hull 6-14 St Helens

Leeds 8-0 Warrington

Salford 4-8 Hull KR

Wakefield 8-0 London

AS THINGS STAND – Warrington 3rd, Salford 4th, Castleford 5th, Hull 6th, London relegated.


With London struggling at Wakefield, 8-0 down, results elsewhere are redundant. But Huddersfield trail 12-10 against Catalans, with Hull KR winning at Salford.

AS THINGS STAND: London are relegated, Warrington finish third, Hull miss out on the play-offs.


You’ve really got to be kicking those penalties and finishing those try chances if you’re Kieran Dixon and London Broncos. Wakefield make them pay through Ryan Hampshire’s try.


St Helens hit the front at Hull – who may well be on Mad Monday very soon. They need some sort of result to leapfrog Castleford and reach the play-offs.


Louis Senior has the first try of the night, putting Huddersfield in front over Catalans. You feel that the least amount of drama this evening will be at the John Smith’s Stadium, given the Dragons’ recent form and their team.



This is what sport is all about, nights like this.


Wakefield haven’t been bottom of the league in the entire season – five clubs have, including Leeds, who are safe.


London captain Jay Pitts, set to join Wakefield next season, told Sky Sports: “It’s a big game for both teams. We’ve prepared really well for it, and we come in on a bit of form. It just comes down to this one. I’m committed to this year and I’ll worry about everything else after that.”


Who goes down?


London’s efforts this season have been incredible, they almost deserve to stay up having been written off by everyone before the campaign.


All four teams tonight know that a win will be enough for survival – Huddersfield play Catalans, one of only three teams with nothing to play for this weekend.
