Here is our Super League Round 27 2019 Review. Don’t forget we preview every Super League game including team news and form guides.
Salford Red Devils 22-6 Warrington Wolves
Salford (2) 22
Tries: Sio 3, Bibby Goals: Inu 3
Warrington (0) 6
Tries: Walker Goals: Ratchford
The first half of this game failed to live up the levels we have come to expect from Salford and from what we always expect from Warrington and whilst Warrington had a great excuse for that, it was difficult to understand what the issue was for Salford.
Thankfully Ian Watson managed to solve it at the break and in the 2nd half Salford started to play with much more intensity and with the freedom in attack that they have created there name on this season.
Warrington never quite lived with them but they did keep going until the last minute when they finally grabbed a try.
St Helens 4-0 Castleford Tigers
St Helens (4) 4
Castleford Tigers 0 (0)
Although a down poor before the game and consistent rain throughout made things tricky, neither side will be happy with their performance in this one.
Constant mistakes, poor decisions and a lack of creativity happened both sides and the spectacle.
Hull FC 12-22 Huddersfield Giants
Hull FC (12) 12
Tries: Shaul, Faraimo Goals: Sneyd 2
Huddersfield Giants (10) 22
Tries: McGillvary, Murphy, Senior, Frawley Goals: Gaskell 3
Huddersfield put in a much improved performance but it looked like it wasn’t going to be enough before two late tries not only turned the game on it’s head but could have rescued the season and a Super League place for Huddersfield.
Catalans Dragons 6-24 Hull KR
Catalans (6) 6
Tries: Mead Goals: Gigot
Hull KR (16) 24
Tries: Shaw 2, McGuire Goals: Shaw 6
The Dragons put in another disappointing display, full of errors and full of disjointed attacking efforts but nothing can be taken away from the Robins who never let up and never allowed the home side to paly there way into the game.
London Broncos 10-36
London Broncos (0) 10
Tries: Dixon, Morgan Goals: Dixon
Leeds Rhinos (18) 36
Tries: Briscoe, Seumanufagai, Walker 2, Handley, Dwyer Goals: Martin 6
Leeds ended any hopes of a relegation 4 point classic as they were the dominant side throughout.
After taking a seemingly match winning lead into the break, London did make things difficult for the Rhinos and could easily have moved to within a couple of points of Leeds but in the end they could never get close enough to make things uncomfortable for the away side and with Leeds adding some late gloss to the scoreboard, the Rhinos now look safe from the drop.
Wakefield Trinity 16-24 Wigan Warriors
Wakefield (12) 16
Tries: Batchelor, Miller, Jones-Bishop Goals: Brough 2
Wigan (12) 24
Tries: Marshall 3, Powell Goals: Hardaker 4
Wakefield couldn’t match the performance they put in against Hull KR before the cup final break but they never gave in and almost grabbed something from a game they were always playing catch up in.
With the rain falling, Wigan adapted the better in the first half and opened up a 0-12 lead only to be dragged back before the break.
The second half seem to be going the same way as Wigan opened the scoring but with Brough missing a conversion to level things up, Wigan remained relaxed and added some late points to make the score look much more comfortable than it was.
