Here is our Super League Round 25 2019 Review. Don’t forget we preview every Super League game including team news and form guides.
Warrington Wolves 12-30 St Helens
Warrington (10) 12
Tries: Mamo, Thewlis Goals: Ratchford 2
St Helens (12) 30
Tries: Naiqama, Lomax, Paulo, Costello, Makinson Goals: Richardson 5
The youthful Wolves stood up well against the league leading St Helens but in the end the extra quality and experience of Saints shone through as they controlled much of the second half.
With Warrington missing so many players, it was actually a couple of Saints own youngsters who stood up and shone the most with Jack Welsby especially taking his chance.
Leeds Rhinos 48-8 Catalans Dragons
Leeds (16) 48
Tries: Handley 2, Myler 2, Lui, Briscoe, Martin Goals: Martin 10
Catalans (8) 8
Tries: Goudemand Goals: Gigot 2
Whilst the result may look like it was a dominant performance for Leeds, and in the end it certainly was, the turning point in the game was a red card for Leeds.
With the game still close, the loss of Brad Singleton for the Rhinos would normally lead to Catalans getting back into it and Leeds simply looking to cling on but it had the reverse affect as the Rhinos stepped up their game and the Dragons seemed to switch off.
Wigan Warriors 36-18 Hull KR
Wigan (12) 36
Tries: Farrell 2, Williams, Marshall, Burgess, Clubb Goals: Hardaker 6
Hull KR (12) 18
Tries: Shaw, Crooks, Drinkwater Goals: Shaw 3
The first half of this game was a close affair, with Wigan started the stronger and opening a lead before Hull KR pulled level before the break.
In the second half, things were different as the Warriors extra quality shone through and the home side pulled out to a relatively straight forward win.
Castleford Tigers 20-6 London Broncos
Castleford Tigers (4) 20
Tries: Egodo 2, Holmes, O’Neill Goals: Ellis 2
London Broncos (6) 6
Tries: Lamb Goals: Dixon
London put in a great first half performance to take a narrow lead into the break but in the second half they fell away whilst Cas stepped things up.
An early second half try for Oli Holmes seemed to settle the Tigers down and from their on in there was only going to be one winner.
Salford Red Devils 32-12 Huddersfield Giants
Salford (10) 32
Tries: Tomkins, Flanagan, Lolohea, Inu Goals: Inu 8
Huddersfield (6) 12
Tries: McIntosh, Russell Goals: Roberts, Russell
Huddersfield started strongly and took an early lead but that was as good as it got the away side as Salford took control of the game before the break and really excelled towards the end with Inu having a great day with the boot.
Wakefield Trinity 16-26 Hull FC
Wakefield Trinity (6) 16
Tries: Hampshire, Arundel, Miller Goals: Brough 2
Hull FC (20) 26
Tries: Faraimo, Tuimavave, Sneyd, Naulago 2 Goals: Sneyd 3
Wakefield started the game well and took an early lead but then mistakes started to hit them and thanks to a bit of look as a grubber hit posts and a great intercept try, Hull FC opened up a match winning lead before the break.
The fragile confidence of the home side really took a hit with those late try’s from Hull FC and with the away side scoring first in the second half, the game really could have gotten away from the home side but to their credit, they did stay in the match and at least kept the score respectable.
