We look at all the best bits from the weekend’s action.
It was a cracker of a game on Friday night, with Castleford Tigers beating Leeds Rhinos 25-24 at Elland Road. It was brilliant to see Leeds break their own Super League attendance record.
Tonight's attendance is 23,246 a new club record for the @SuperLeague era and our 2nd biggest home league crowd for 50 years, thank you to all the Leeds and @CTRLFC for playing your part and doing our game proud pic.twitter.com/3k8bRCx1sp

There was very nearly an upset in the Championship. Rochdale Hornets put up a phenomenal fight against Toronto Wolfpack, but the Canadian side clinched an 18-17 victory at the Crown Oil Arena. It was also our live match.

Huddersfield lost heavily at Wigan on Friday night and it was their worst performance of the season yet. They have won just two out of their first seven games of the season and sit rock bottom. The Giants need wins and fast.

Result of the week
There weren’t many upsets this weekend but what a result it was for Castleford. Leeds were favourites for the game at Elland Road but the Tigers grabbed the two points. Notable mentions must go to Rochdale and Pilkington Recs, who came close to beating Toronto and Coventry respectively.
