Here is our Super League Round 2 2020 Review. Don’t forget we preview every Super League game including team news and form guides.
Warrington Wolves 19-0 St Helens
Warrington (13) 19
Tries: Clark, Lineham, Charnley Goals: Ratchford 3 Drop goal: Austin
St Helens (0) 0
As you would expect from a game where one team were kept to nil, the hosts were dominant in this one form start to finish but it was not due to Saints playing incredibly badly or making constant mistakes, it was all down to Wolves players.
Every single Wire had a great game in front of a packed house and not only did they enjoy attacking but you could see the pride in all of the players as they celebrated every try saving tackle.
Castleford Tigers 16-12 Wigan Warriors
Castleford Tigers (12) 16
Tries: Olpherts, Blair Goals: Richardson 4
Wigan Warriors (6) 12
Tries: Byrne, J Burgess Goals: Hardaker 2
The injury hit Tigers put in a great performance at home to Wigan and certainly deserved the victory but they were also helped along the way by a Wigan side that simply made far too many errors.
Wigan just couldn’t hit the heights of their win over Warrington and whilst it does take some time to get used to the small pitch at Cas, a team with so much experience should easily be able to adapt and it is surprising to see them use that as an excuse.
Hull FC 25-16 Hull KR
Hull FC (12) 25
Tries: Connor, Houghton, Sneyd, Griffin Goals: Sneyd 4 Drop-goal: Sneyd
Hull KR (10) 16
Tries: Livett, Quinlan, Crooks Goals: Ellis 2
What a game and a spectacle the Hull Derby was on Friday night.
Not only did we have a packed house with famous ex-players and celebrities in attendance but we had an action packed and high quality match up to match the surrounding.
The match absolutely flew by with the action fast and the skill levels high but Hull KR would have liked the match to have been extended as they were pushing on the door for the last 10 minutes but in the end Hull FC just had that extra bit of quality for the Red and White side of Hull but with the lead changing hands, you could never rule out the Robins getting back into it.
In fact it was Hull KR that grabbed many of the headlines despite losing, with Ben Crooks try already a contender for try of the season but from a Hull FC point of view, this was a great sign for them going forward as this was exactly the sort of match they have lost over the last few season as Hull KR started the stronger.
Salford Red Devils 24- 16 Toronto Wolfpack
Salford (6) 24
Tries: Brown, Lolohea, Williams, Sarginson, Evalds Goals: Lolohea 2
Toronto (4) 16
Tries: Wheeler 2, Singleton Goals: Wallace 2
Both teams started the game poorly in what was quite a scrappy first half but after the hooter, it was the hosts who took the game by the scruff of it’s neck and despite a late rally from the Wolfpack, Salford held on for their first points of the season.
Both Wakefield v Catalans and Huddersfield v Leeds were called off due to the bad weather.
