Super League round-up: St Helens stay top, Warrington on fire, Wigan pull off comeback

There were several high-scoring matches in round 10 of the Betfred Super League.

St Helens proved they aren’t just a one-man team as they beat Hull FC 26-12 without Ben Barba at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday night. Saints made it nine wins out of ten games and remain top of the Betfred Super League by four points.

Warrington Wolves picked up their fifth win in a row with a 22-6 victory over Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday. Josh Charnley is proving his worth at the minute, with the winger scoring a try and providing an assist in the game.

Wigan scored 28 unanswered points in 25 second half minutes to pull off a remarkable comeback against Catalans Dragons on Saturday at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, Perpignan. Warriors and England captain Sean O’Loughlin a perfect second half display to guide his side to a 32-23 victory.

Justin Carney scored two tries to help Hull Kingston Rovers end their three-game losing streak with a fine 31-12 victory over bottom four rivals Widnes Vikings at KCOM Craven Park. Keanan Brand made his first team debut for Widnes, but suffered a broken leg in the process, handing the Vikings another blow to their injury list.

England star Kallum Watkins scored two tries to help champions Leeds Rhinos defeat Wakefield Trinity for the fifth time in a row after running-out 28-26 winners at the Mobile Rocket Stadium. Watkins’ touchline conversion clinched the two points for the Rhinos in the latter stages of the game.

Castleford Tigers bounced back from an Easter Monday defeat to Warrington Wolves with a 40-28 win over Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. The Tigers were in complete control in the first half after taking a 28-6 lead into the sheds, and just did enough to weather a Huddersfield storm in the second half to claim the two points.
