Leeds Rhinos have suffered their worst-ever home start to a season after they lost 26-0 to St Helens, which was their seventh defeat in eight games.

Reigning champions St Helens were 8-0 up at the break thanks to tries from former Leeds centre Konrad Hurrell and Tommy Makinson.

It was all Saints in the second half, with further tries from Makinson, Lewis Dodd and Jonny Lomax sealing the victory for Kristian Woolf’s outfit.

Castleford backed up last week’s impressive 40-16 win over Leeds in the Challenge Cup sixth round with a 32-6 victory over Toulouse at home.

Greg Eden, Niall Evalds, Adam Milner, Jake Mamo and Liam Watts scored for the Tigers. France international Tony Gigot scored a consolation for Toulouse late on.

Hull KR eased past out-of-form Warrington 34-18 in front of a sold out crowd at Craven Park.

The game was delayed by 15 minutes due to Warrington being stuck in traffic. It started by Frankie Halton and Ryan Hall scoring for the Robins within the first 10 minutes.

Tony Smith’s Hull KR side led 20-6 at the break. They scored three more tries in the second half to seal the two points.

Warrington have endured a shaky start to life under coach Daryl Powell, having won three from eight games in all competitions.

Huddersfield produced a fine performance as they defeated last year’s Grand Finalists Catalans Dragons 28-12 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Owen Trout, Danny Levi, Theo Fages and Josh Jones went over for the Giants. Ian Watson’s side only sit behind league leaders St Helens and Wigan in the table.
