Field, 24, crossed for his seventh try of the season in the club’s win at the DW Stadium. He picked up three Man of Steel points and returned to the top with a total of 12 so far this season.

Salford 26-12 Leeds

Winger Joe Burgess collects three points following his side’s victory over the Rhinos. The winger received praise from his head coach Paul Rowley following the fixture.

Rowley believes Burgess remains one of the four or five best wingers available to England coach Shaun Wane and has backed his man to force his way into the side in time for the autumn World Cup on home soil.

Salford skipper Elijah Taylor picked up his first points of the season with two. Leeds captain Kruise Leeming collected one.

Hooker Michael McIlorum collected the maximum points following his side’s fifth win of the season. Hull KR centre Shaun Kenny-Dowall collected two points. Catalans half-back Josh Drinkwater picked up one.

Tony Gigot played a crucial role in his side’s triumph and picks up three points – taking his tally to five for the season. St Helens half-back Jonny Lomax collected two, while Toulouse goal-kicker Chris Hankinson picked up his first point of the season.

Warrington 22-38 Wakefield

Half-back partner Jacob Miller collected two, while forward Matty Ashurst gets his first.

Hull 14-6 Huddersfield
