Super 8’s – Round 3

Wigan brought ST Helens seven match winning run to a shuddering halt at the DW Stadium. Wigan produced an outstanding defensive display to ensure Saints did not score a single point. A hat trick from Anthony Gelling and a perfect four for four from the boot of Matty Smith saw Wigan win 25-0 in maybe the most impressive display of the Super 8’s so far

It was much closer at the Halliwell Jones Stadium where Warrington had to come from behind as a Denny Solomona try gave Castleford an 8-6 lead at the break. Warrington rallied with three tries from Joe Westerman, Rhys Evans and Jack Hughes to eventually take a close 14-11 win. In the final game of the round 2 tries from Patrick Ah Van and 14 points including a try from Lloyd White helped Widnes ease past bottom club Wakefield 40-8. Widnes went over seven times during the game as Wakefield fast become the whipping boys of the competition.
