Sunday’s Super League round-up

Bradford overcame Wakefield 26-24 in a close Yorkshire derby at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

The Wildcats enjoyed the better start to the game and they were 12-nil up after half-an-hour thanks to tries from Reece Lyne and Peter Fox.

A Keith Lulia brace in the final minutes of the half put the Bulls right back in the game though, with a 12-10 scoreline in favour of the home side at the interval.

Frankie Mariano extended the Wildcats lead but then Tom Olbison and Brett Kearney tries saw the Bulls take control for the first time in the match.

Jamie Foster sealed the win with 14 minutes remaining, although Wakefield half-back Lee Smith did make for some tense final moments with an individual try.

Bradford’s win means that they leapfrog the Wildcats into ninth, just two points behind Hull FC in the final play-off position.

Huddersfield breezed back to the summit of the Super League table after a 46-4 win over a weakened Salford side.

The Giants led 28-nil at half-time, with two early tries from Jermaine McGillvary added to by scores from David Faiumu, Brett Ferres and Joe Wardle.

There was much of the same in the second period and although Niall Evalds scored a consolation try for the visitors, Huddersfield cantered home with further tries from Danny Brough and Jamie Cording (2).

The Giants are back to being a point in front of second-placed Wigan – who they face at the DW Stadium next Friday.

Both sides produced some brilliant attacking play as Warrington gained a 40-30 win over Castleford.

Lee Briers opened the scoring at the Wish Communications Stadium but the Tigers hit back through Justin Carney, Weller Huaraki, Adam Milner and Kirk Dixon.

Garreth Carvell gave the Wolves hope with a try before half-time and after the break they stunned Castleford with three tries in six minutes through Brad Dwyer, Richie Myler and Micky Higham.

Tigers prop Craig Huby scored to bring the game back level but then the visitors pulled away again, firstly thanks to Higham’s second of the day and then a Joel Monaghan try.

It is now mathematically impossible for Castleford to make the play-offs, while Warrington remain in third-place.
