Round 25 of the Betfred Super League once again threw up its fair share of winners and losers with the battle at the bottom getting tighter.
With St Helens already crowned League Leaders Shield winners most of the focus has been on what’s happening at the bottom of the standings and for those battling to get into the top five play-off positions.
The main winners this weekend were the Leeds Rhinos who look to be heading back towards what people expect of the Headingley outfit with a second sensational win on the bounce.
This weekend’s victory came against top-five chasers Catalans Dragons but a sterner test comes this Thursday against table-topping St Helens. However, the Rhinos appear to be almost out of danger after a difficult season.
The defeat for the French outfit means they are one of three clubs sat on 26 points with Salford and Castleford as all three chase fifth and final qualifying spot.
Warrington appear to have chosen the wrong time of the season to hit a poor run of form, following their defeat at Catalans last weekend they followed it up with a home drubbing by St Helens.
The two sides will be going head to head in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley in two weeks’ time and the Wolves need to get their season going again (St Helens 4/9, Draw 20/1, Warrington 2/1 – Challenge Cup Final).
Meanwhile, Steve Price will be hoping his side can get back to winning ways ahead of the Wembley showdown when they take on Wigan away from home on Friday.
Both Wakefield Trinity and Hull KR lost at the weekend and remain on 18 points, just two in front of bottom club London Broncos.
