Super League: High-flying trio march on

Castleford, Salford and Wakefield all made it a double of wins over the weekend as their remarkable Super League campaigns continued.

With Leeds suffering a surprise loss at bottom club Widnes, only points difference now prevents those three clubs occupying the top three places – Wakefield just edged out in fourth on the same number of points as the Rhinos.

Salford recorded their seventh straight win with a 38-12 win at Warrington, to add to their comprehensive win over Catalans on Friday.

Niall Evalds scored a hat-trick as the Red Devils scored a comfortable victory, having opened up an 18-0 lead early on.

Wakefield came from 20-0 down to beat Wigan 42-30 at the DW Stadium, backing up their Friday night win over Huddersfield.

A Bill Tupou hat-trick inside 11 minutes was the catalyst to the turnaround.

And Castleford won 38-0 win at Leigh, following their hard-fought win over Widnes earlier in the weekend.

Super League’s leading try scorer Greg Eden was also on the hat-trick trail, scoring four tries in what was his fourth hat-trick in as many games, a new record.

Meanwhile, Widnes recorded only their third win of the season as they beat Leeds 28-20.

Wingers Corey Thompson and Ryan Ince scored a brace of tries as the Vikings fought back to beat Leeds, who had thrashed Warrington on Friday night.

Catalans take on Hull in the final game of the day, kicking off at 7.00pm.
