Super League Monday: Saints stay top as Wolves, FC, Rhinos, Warriors and Dragons win on bumper day


St Helens remain four points clear at the top of the Super League after a solid if not spectacular win against Widnes Vikings.

Two tries each for Mark Percival and Tommy Makinson- who has now reached 100 tries in the Super League, and further efforts from Ryan Morgan and Ben Barba won the game for the Saints.

A Wellington Albert try was all the Vikings could respond with as they remain in the top eight on points difference.


Elsewhere, Wigan Warriors kept up the pace with their bitter rivals at the top of the Super League with a 44-6 win over Hull KR.

Four tries from Liam Marshall, two from Liam Farrell and further tries from Sam Tomkins and George Williams emphatically won the game for Wigan.

A Chris Atkin try was all the Rovers could reply with as they continue to slide perilously close to the bottom.


The Catalans Dragons also claimed a second win of the season as they beat Huddersfield Giants 27-6 at the Stade Gilbert Brutus.

Two tries for Jodie Broughton and David Mead as well as a further effort from Benjamin Jullien won the game for the Dragons, to bring them level with second bottom Hull KR in the table.

Huddersfield responded with a try from Aaron Murphy, but the Giants couldn’t make their first half pressure count.


Hull FC won a classic as they beat Wakefield Trinity 27-6 at the KCOM Stadium.

Two tries from Fetuli Talanoa and further efforts from Albert Kelly and Jordan Abdull as well as two penalties and a 50 metre drop goal from Marc Sneyd won the game for the Black and Whites.

Two tries each for Bill Tupou and Mason Caton-Brown kept Trinity in the game, but they fall short for the fourth game in a row.


Also, Leeds Rhinos put on the best defensive performance of the day, beating Salford Red Devils 20-0 at Headingley.

They won thanks to tries from Tom Briscoe, Ash Handley and Josh Walters.


Lastly, the Warrington Wolves made it back to back wins this Easter after winning 18-6 at a very wet Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Tries from the in form Toby King and Daryl Clark and three penalties from Stefan Ratchford won the game for the Wolves- whose excellent run continues, they have now not lost in four matches.

Oliver Holmes replied for Castleford, who suffer their first defeat in five games.
