Super League Round 2

Champions Leeds Rhinos made it two wins from two as Jimmy Keinhorst grabbed a Hat-Trick of tries in a 20-11 win over Hull Kingston Rovers. 8 points from the boot of Danny Brough aided Huddersfield to their first win of the season with a 20-6 win over Warrington. The Giants scored three tries on the night through Dale Ferguson, Darnell McIntosh and Jordan Turner in a game they dominated throughout.

Wakefield Trinity and ST Helens have both maintained perfect starts. Salford actually outscored Wakefield three tries to two but Liam Finn’s three goals kept Wakefield ahead. Kris Welham scored a Salford try at the death to cut the deficit to 14-12 but as all night, Gareth O’Brien missed the conversion and chance to level the score handing Wakefield the win. ST Helens win over Catalan was more straight forward, tries from Jonny Lomax and Regan Grace gave the Saints a 12-0 lead at halftime which they held eventually running out 21-12 winners with Danny Robertson getting 9 points with the boot.

Wigan Warriors are also off to the perfect start with a 24-10 win over Hull including two tries for Liam Marshall. After a close first half Wigan took control in the second not conceding a point while adding two more tries. The final game between Castleford and Widnes was the closest. Each side scored two tries but a Luke Gale drop goal proved the difference handing the Tigers a 13-12 victory.
