Welcome to the Super League show. We

were going to be at Castleford, but

0:00:380:00:43

the Beast from the East scuppered us

and their game against Wigan was

0:00:430:00:47

postponed. We have sought refuge at

Headingley in the company of Stevie

0:00:470:00:52

Ward and Brian Noble. We start with

Super League Leaders Shield Helen is

0:00:520:00:56

taking on the champions, Leeds.

COMMENTATOR: Parcell, you can see

0:00:560:01:04

how close Leeds Rhinos are getting.

Jones-Buchanan towards the middle.

0:01:040:01:10

Richie Myler keeping it alive. Joel

Moon trying to inject himself

0:01:100:01:14

between a couple of defenders but he

had to take the tackle. Hammered in

0:01:140:01:18

again... They still have a couple of

tackles in the bag here. Mullaly...

0:01:180:01:26

With a wrestle! Anthony Muller Ali

is over for the game's first try. --

0:01:260:01:36

Mullally. Leeds are striking early.

James Roby... It is taken in with

0:01:360:01:45

determination by Wilkin. James Roby

again, coming left. Richards to

0:01:450:01:53

Lomax... Barba! More than just

involved. He scores the tri-! He

0:01:530:02:01

kept them guessing, and slides over.

Richardson playing it quickly. Back

0:02:010:02:12

towards the middle, it is brought

here by Douglas. He has lost the

0:02:120:02:16

ball... And it has gone backwards.

The referee has given a penalty, for

0:02:160:02:20

St Helens, here. It looked like a

loose curry. The referee has decided

0:02:200:02:30

that it was stolen. -- it looked to

be a loose carry. Richardson with a

0:02:300:02:36

chance to get a 2-point lead for his

side. St Helens with the lead for

0:02:360:02:40

the first time tonight, 26 minutes

played. Barba...

0:02:400:02:50

James Roby, his sixth tackle. -- the

sixth tackle. Richardson. Swift

0:02:540:03:02

knocking it backwards, Richardson

picking it up, putting speculation

0:03:020:03:05

back on the inside. That is

brilliant from St Helens! Swift will

0:03:050:03:10

finish. A pass on the ground by

Tommy Makinson. It was all pretty

0:03:100:03:15

special. A look again, he thinks it

is a try. That has gone backwards.

0:03:150:03:20

They are having a look here to see

if Richardson stays in the field of

0:03:200:03:25

play. And he does, before he gets

the pass away. Handling here on the

0:03:250:03:31

ground was extra special, and Swift

with a finish. A try to remember for

0:03:310:03:38

St Helens. Swift, scoring.

Parcell... Atkinson is still injured

0:03:380:03:49

in back play. That will be a concern

for St Helens. Leeds Rhinos carrying

0:03:490:03:54

on regardless. Taken on by Briscoe,

on the inside... Richie Myler will

0:03:540:04:01

finish! With sunflower, it will

seem. A really good try for them.

0:04:010:04:13

Carl Ablett, ready to run this

clear, if you can. Taking it out. St

0:04:130:04:21

Helens are desperate to keep the

Leeds Rhinos down here. Hull call

0:04:210:04:30

surrender... Walters is not playing

it properly, Carl Ablett...

0:04:300:04:37

St Helens with a chance to add two,

and it goes over for Richardson.

0:04:410:04:46

They have the lead again. Matt

Parcell, spinning it back... Inside

0:04:460:04:59

for Carl Ablett to have a real go.

Great pressure from Leeds at the

0:04:590:05:02

moment. They get a penalty! James

Roby, not getting off the tackle

0:05:020:05:07

quickly enough. They go for two.

They are going to level things up.

0:05:070:05:12

You can see James Roby hanging on

the back and the referee has decided

0:05:120:05:18

for too long. Kallum Watkins settles

himself, to try and level the

0:05:180:05:22

scores. He does! 14-14, and very

nearly one hour played. Parcell,

0:05:220:05:35

trying to find their way through

here again. Carl Ablett playing it

0:05:350:05:40

to Richie Myler. A chip over the

top... And he will try and get hold

0:05:400:05:44

of this... It is bouncing! Ash

Handley! With a try. It suddenly

0:05:440:05:51

gives leads the lead again. They

held on throughout the game and now

0:05:510:05:56

they are leading it -- it suddenly

gives the Leeds Rhinos the lead

0:05:560:05:59

again. Carl Ablett has to stand and

wait... The referee is fine with

0:05:590:06:05

that. Sixth tackle, it is a poor

one. The St Helens defence... It is

0:06:050:06:14

deflected and dropped! It is Ash

Handley again! A calamity of errors

0:06:140:06:22

but it works out for Leeds Rhinos!

That score may have just settled

0:06:220:06:25

this. They rarely give up, but you

feel it is a fight against the odds

0:06:250:06:35

here for St Helens. Percival, put

down. The last unbeaten record of

0:06:350:06:43

the Super League going, it would

seem tonight. Here comes Regan

0:06:430:06:46

Grace... He has support on the

inside as well! From Barba...

0:06:460:06:52

Breaking away from Carl Ablett...

Ben Barba! A sensational St Helens

0:06:520:07:01

try, and a sensational comeback is

on the cards here. Remarkable stuff.

0:07:010:07:10

Parcell... Leeds are happy to roll

the clock down here now, surely?

0:07:100:07:15

They have time on their side. They

know the potency of the St Helens

0:07:150:07:20

team. Here goes Parcell, a dummy

half... Got it down! Matt Parcell

0:07:200:07:26

has got it down. The referee

confirms that try. And that, surely,

0:07:260:07:33

is a gutsy win for leads at the end

of this unbeaten record for St

0:07:330:07:36

Helens? STUDIO: A heck of an effort

from the Leeds Rhinos, wasn't it? It

0:07:360:07:44

was an outstanding win. One of the

indicators in the first half was

0:07:440:07:49

saying that the Saints would grab

that win. I was thinking, they need

0:07:490:07:54

to do something special here.

But it

0:07:540:07:58

that win. I was thinking, they need

to do something special here.

But it

0:07:580:07:59

was outstanding to get this two

points, and especially that could be

0:07:590:08:01

a big result this season.

And what

does it do for their confidence and

0:08:010:08:05

belief, and spirit in the camp to

get a win like that?

There were a

0:08:050:08:09

few young boys playing, Smith did

well, Ash Handley, it was a big

0:08:090:08:18

boost throughout the course of the

year. When we are down in numbers

0:08:180:08:21

and not playing that well. To win,

and to beat a St Helens team all out

0:08:210:08:26

for that win. It is quite magical,

really.

Leeds keep knocking those

0:08:260:08:35

wins. That's the key to their

success. If they don't have

0:08:350:08:38

structure here, then don't do

that... But they are winning the

0:08:380:08:41

games. The coach gets them ready for

important parts of the season. I

0:08:410:08:46

think he Saints have began the

season well. There's an emphasis on

0:08:460:08:50

the game Friday night, with how good

they were. People forget how tough

0:08:500:08:56

Leeds are and how they keep

themselves in the game and produce

0:08:560:09:00

place to get over the line. Anyone

watching the first half of the game

0:09:000:09:04

would have thought, here they come

in the second half but Leeds had a

0:09:040:09:08

different idea. That's often the

case. A big kick for them, they will

0:09:080:09:12

be in the race when it matters.

For

these guys, you have a new half-back

0:09:120:09:17

pairing with Richie Myler involved.

Is that changing? Or has he slotted

0:09:170:09:24

into your systems?

He has that

dynamic game which suits how we play

0:09:240:09:33

but he has also brought in a lot of

structure. We have a formula when it

0:09:330:09:39

is put on us. And when teams can

deal with off-the-cuff kinds of

0:09:390:09:46

stuff. You have Joel Moon, half the

time, we don't know what he is going

0:09:460:09:52

to do! But he is such a powerful

player. A lot of the time, with him,

0:09:520:09:57

his defence. It goes unsung. He is

brilliant at it. Richie is keen to

0:09:570:10:05

get stuck in. It is a good pairing.

We had the World Cup challenge and a

0:10:050:10:13

premature test in that partnership

that as we go along these games and

0:10:130:10:17

keep picking up these fixtures, we

will get better and better.

Are we

0:10:170:10:21

seeing a slightly more mature Richie

Myler, he seems to relish the lead

0:10:210:10:25

right now?

How old is he? He is a

good footballer and has been in good

0:10:250:10:32

systems and I think he enjoys

Leeds...

Can he work back into the

0:10:320:10:36

England setup?

My question is, why

not? If he plays well enough, for

0:10:360:10:40

shock.

On Saturday Wakefield did

their best to get their game against

0:10:400:10:45

Widnes on, but the beast from the

East meant it did not last long...

0:10:450:10:48

It

0:10:480:10:48

East meant it did not last long...

It was all smiles as snow fell

0:10:480:10:53

lightly over the West Yorkshire

ground, but by the time the teams

0:10:530:10:57

came out, conditions had become a

little more brisk, as Wakefield

0:10:570:11:00

began to look more like a winter

wonderland scene then a rugby field.

0:11:000:11:05

With such challenging conditions,

there wasn't much hope of

0:11:050:11:09

free-flowing play. The first and

only real action of the game came in

0:11:090:11:13

the eighth minute. Danny Koeman

tried to break through the Widnes

0:11:130:11:16

defence and was held up for a little

too long. The ball seemingly

0:11:160:11:21

stripped from his grasp and a

penalty awarded to the home side.

0:11:210:11:25

Sometimes, Liam Finn, in the

swirling blizzard, managed to get

0:11:250:11:28

the opening two points of the game.

Sometimes giving the camera operator

0:11:280:11:34

a chance to clear the lens. With 26

minutes gone, the referee deemed

0:11:340:11:39

that conditions were unplayable, and

due to play safety, he called off

0:11:390:11:45

the game. The fixture will be

rescheduled and fans will be hoping

0:11:450:11:49

that Beast paw do not trouble in

threes...

-- beasts.

0:11:490:11:57

You played in dreadful conditions in

winter rugby? What is wrong with

0:11:570:12:01

people?

You would go up the middle

track...

And they didn't even give

0:12:010:12:06

you an orange ball?

No! You had to

identify your own players, the mud

0:12:060:12:09

would kick in in winter rugby. You

would have two check out their eyes

0:12:090:12:14

or by how many teeth were missing!

It was a different game for sure!

0:12:140:12:18

But seriously, we do have some catch

up to play. Castleford with two

0:12:180:12:22

games to fit into the season. How

tricky will that be?

You wonder

0:12:220:12:29

about those games, where they will

fit in. With the squad sizes as they

0:12:290:12:34

are, it is a tough ask, it is a

tough challenge. They need to fit in

0:12:340:12:38

somewhere. People required to play,

maybe they are not that experienced

0:12:380:12:43

in playing at a Super League level.

But I think from the experiences

0:12:430:12:48

that Castle have picked up in the

last year, they should be OK.

Is it

0:12:480:12:53

a possibility to play one of the

games on the international weekend?

0:12:530:12:57

It is a conundrum, you have two time

it as best as you can. They will be

0:12:570:13:01

looking at their calendar now. There

are good players and a squad that

0:13:010:13:05

they have, the dynamics of injuries

coming in, you need to plan

0:13:050:13:09

meticulously. You could lose a home

game that you may not have done in

0:13:090:13:13

the normal run of things. So get

your calendar out and make sure that

0:13:130:13:18

you can fit it in at a time when it

damages you the least.

Normally we

0:13:180:13:22

had to the south of France for some

good weather but Catalan against

0:13:220:13:26

Warrington was played in driving

rain... COMMENTATOR: So, Warrington

0:13:260:13:30

are poised in position. Chris

Hill... Roberts to Hughes... Chris

0:13:300:13:37

Hill with his 200th appearance.

Warrington pressing once again. Into

0:13:370:13:45

the hands of Tyrone Roberts...

Sliding in a kick. For Catalan, they

0:13:450:13:51

look to draw the ball away. The

referee says he has a foot in touch.

0:13:510:13:56

It will be a drop out. Roberts with

a teaser. Tony Gigot had to mop up

0:13:560:14:06

otherwise the try would have been

scored. Lucas Albert trying to give

0:14:060:14:11

it some air... It was scrappy for

Roberts. George King mopping up here

0:14:110:14:19

for Warrington. They fancy their

chances. Having made a good start to

0:14:190:14:25

the game. All Warrington so far.

Hill involved again, as he rumbles

0:14:250:14:31

through the line. They struggled to

put it down in these clotting

0:14:310:14:36

conditions in Perpignan. It is a

slick move, way to the right hand

0:14:360:14:42

side... Mitch Brown! Diving in at

the corner. Catalan cut open.

0:14:420:14:49

Warrington in full flight. A

wonderful score for Mitch Brown.

0:14:490:14:57

Clark again, offering one up to

Chris Hill. Looking to raid the

0:14:570:15:01

Dragons line. Daryl Clark... Looking

to push through! That was a terrific

0:15:010:15:10

finish from Daryl Clark, and the try

is confirmed by Chris Kendall. Soft

0:15:100:15:16

Catalan defence. Daryl Clark, sharp

as a tack, in attack! Sign of a

0:15:160:15:26

response from Catalan, as Warrington

press again. Mike Cooper... Five

0:15:260:15:32

metres way, if that. Brown with a

lovely pass. They have trouble on

0:15:320:15:36

that side. Just about half

recovering there... Catalan. Urging

0:15:360:15:45

that drop-off to Jack Hughes.

Eventually taking the bait. Again,

0:15:450:15:52

Warrington with the tackle here.

Clark to Brown, it goes straight to

0:15:520:16:05

Ben Westwood! Where was the Catalan

defence? It was a simple try.

0:16:050:16:13

Murdoch-Masila was all on his own.

The grounding was looking good and a

0:16:130:16:22

try is awarded. Suddenly, Warrington

pulling clear with plenty to do for

0:16:220:16:26

Steve McNamara and the Catalan

coaching staff... The Dragons,

0:16:260:16:33

finally getting a sniff of things in

an attacking position here. Dumped a

0:16:330:16:39

to the right-hand side. A kick goes

through, it a dangerous one. Fouad

0:16:390:16:47

Yaha nowhere near it. Albert looks

to be in a bad way. Mitch Brown is

0:16:470:16:54

picked up and gone with the ball.

Warrington... Finding their rhythm,

0:16:540:17:01

it should be said. In these rather

tricky conditions. They have

0:17:010:17:08

deteriorated throughout this first

half. A chip ahead from timeline. It

0:17:080:17:12

is getting scrappy and testy now.

There is a tussle in midfield

0:17:120:17:21

between two of these opposing

players. Plenty of peacemakers

0:17:210:17:25

about, to be fair. Daryl Clark is

inching to have a pop... Let's see

0:17:250:17:31

what happened. As Tom line and sent

the kick away... -- Tom Lineham. As

0:17:310:17:39

play continues, there seems to be a

number of scraps going on. Kevin

0:17:390:17:43

Brown was involved in one of them.

Chris Kendall will lift up the

0:17:430:17:47

yellow card. Heading to the sin-bin,

Fouad Yaha. Catalan down to 12 men.

0:17:470:17:54

For the remainder of this first

half. Tom line and joins -- Tom

0:17:540:18:01

Lineham joins him. Hughes has been

on the ball, quite literally, for

0:18:010:18:08

much of this game for Warrington. He

has been a real threat. Hill,

0:18:080:18:14

wanting to get that try... Unable to

force his way through on this

0:18:140:18:20

occasion. Ben Murdoch-Masila! You

will not stop him from there. A

0:18:200:18:28

superstar in the second half. As the

rain comes down, there is plenty to

0:18:280:18:33

cheer for those fans who have made

the trip. Catalan, running aground

0:18:330:18:43

as they try to soften up the

Warrington line. Iain Thornley...

0:18:430:18:50

That was well accounted for in the

end by Chris Hill. They will target

0:18:500:18:54

the middle. The Dragons. Still

working their way through. Julien

0:18:540:19:04

Bosquet tries to have a Bustinza, he

makes it to the line! Have Catalan

0:19:040:19:09

scored? Chris Kendall goes to the

screen, a no try call.

0:19:090:19:17

Controversial... There was a dummy

run there. Has it taken the defence

0:19:170:19:23

away from Greg Bird? The video

referee says that it has. Chris

0:19:230:19:27

Kendall chalks off the score. Filthy

conditions in Perpignan. Picked out

0:19:270:19:37

of the air by Rashford. Catalan's

hopes of getting a score in this

0:19:370:19:44

game there, they have the duck egg

next to their names so far...

0:19:440:19:49

Meanwhile, in back play, it is all

going off! Michael Mcllorum and

0:19:490:19:52

George King at the heart of this

one. Michael Mcllorum looks in a

0:19:520:19:57

wryly suck -- rather sorry state.

Chris Kendall will make his evening

0:19:570:20:03

worse, it could be game over for

him... And he trudges off to the

0:20:030:20:08

sin-bin. No more Michael Mcllorum in

this game and George King joins him.

0:20:080:20:19

Roberts has enjoyed himself on this

soggy turf in Perpignan. Tom Lineham

0:20:190:20:25

putting it back infield. Jack Hughes

again, to prise a hole in this

0:20:250:20:28

Catalan rearguard. It is muddy and

it is slippery. It is a time where

0:20:280:20:36

Catalan will be wanting to take down

pretty sharpish. Brown's pass picked

0:20:360:20:43

up by Roberts. He coasts through!

Warrington make it a four score game

0:20:430:20:57

in the south of France. It terrific

performance from the Warrington

0:20:570:21:01

Wolves. The Catalan Dragons beaten

at home by a Warrington side, just

0:21:010:21:06

starting to find their rhythm. Bleak

times for the Catalan Dragons, that

0:21:060:21:11

is just one win from six.

0:21:110:21:15

times for the Catalan Dragons, that

is just one win from six. STUDIO:

0:21:150:21:17

Brian Steve Price saying afterwards

that it was a big improvement from

0:21:170:21:21

Warrington.

Yes, I think that they

are incisive and decisive, the

0:21:210:21:26

kicking game was superb. Conditions

were not the best but they played

0:21:260:21:29

better than Catalan by a fairway.

They look strong and you can see

0:21:290:21:33

some of the principles that Steve is

trying to get into their team,

0:21:330:21:37

coming to fruition. They have

struggled in some of their

0:21:370:21:41

functionality but clearly they have

a style that they want them to play.

0:21:410:21:44

It looks like they got that on

Saturday.

Kevin Brown had a

0:21:440:21:49

fantastic game guiding the team

around the field, how important is

0:21:490:21:53

he in conditions like that?

You can

rely on Kevin for that. Forgetting

0:21:530:22:00

that team around. What not many

people know about Kev committee is

0:22:000:22:03

really decisive. He can direct and

navigate the team around the field.

0:22:030:22:09

Going over to Catalan, you need that

presents. You need that ability to

0:22:090:22:15

get the ball out, pin them down and

put pressure on them.

For Catalan,

0:22:150:22:24

that was really poor, wasn't it?

Yes, they have lost their aura.

0:22:240:22:28

Everybody would prepare for a tough

trip. But they have lost that

0:22:280:22:33

element of them being invincible at

home and that started to happen last

0:22:330:22:36

year. They are not getting them out

of the ball. Five out of six on

0:22:360:22:44

losses but I do know that new

principles, they will be working

0:22:440:22:51

hard on their fundamentals. With one

win and their confidence grows...

0:22:510:22:55

They got that last week but you

regress that much, was but a

0:22:550:22:58

surprise?

Maybe they have taken a

fourth, it is natural, you go in and

0:22:580:23:07

think you have two win, and maybe

you did apply as hard as you should

0:23:070:23:13

have done but against any team in

this Super League, you can get

0:23:130:23:17

beaten. Maybe that breath after the

storm, there's another storm coming

0:23:170:23:20

next week, you always need to be

ready. With one, two, three, your

0:23:200:23:26

confidence builds and you get a

winning streak but it is the same,

0:23:260:23:29

but in a losing streak, that is hard

to break.

A couple of years ago,

0:23:290:23:36

Leeds found themselves in this

position. How easy is it to break?

0:23:360:23:42

It isn't easy, we were in freefall.

It was so tough, we were not getting

0:23:420:23:47

that win, to take a breath and

reassess. It is really tough. Teams

0:23:470:23:52

come after you. This could be

similar for Catalan. It was such a

0:23:520:23:58

tough place to go and get a win

there. But now teams are going on

0:23:580:24:03

the back of this Easter period

thinking it is two points they can

0:24:030:24:06

get while they are in this slump.

Easter isn't really what they want

0:24:060:24:10

right now?

If you ask the players

and the coaches, nobody wants it but

0:24:100:24:16

it is unavoidable, you need to

prepare. It is a defining moment in

0:24:160:24:20

the season, the first defining

moment. The first part of the year,

0:24:200:24:23

the first five or six games, teams

are trying to get better and

0:24:230:24:27

produce. At Easter, you find

yourself in a serious position after

0:24:270:24:31

that time.

There were two

eye-catching transfers in the week,

0:24:310:24:35

O'Brien moving from Salford to

Toronto and Liam Watts moving from

0:24:350:24:39

Hull to Castleford. The teams faced

each other on Friday night...

0:24:390:24:46

Hull to Castleford. The teams faced

each other on Friday night...

0:24:460:24:48

COMMENTATOR: Another week of

upheaval with the exit of O'Brien

0:24:480:24:51

and speculation about the financial

situation at Salford but it is a big

0:24:510:24:56

night for them. We have a penalty

here, and it's a chance to put

0:24:560:25:00

points on the board, surely? Robert

Lui does just that. First to

0:25:000:25:04

Salford! Clare a real opportunity,

they haven't had many, to be fair.

0:25:040:25:15

That was so easy. Dean Hadley

touched down! A good spell for the

0:25:150:25:24

black and whites. Play goes on...

You may have been out. The American

0:25:240:25:36

Faraimo there. The referee is going

back, it was a penalty. A late hit.

0:25:360:25:42

Marc Sneyd could kick those with his

right foot and they would go over

0:25:420:25:46

every time. Good stuff here from

Salford. McCarthy with a great

0:25:460:25:52

flowed! 'S first try, the Fijian, in

Salford colours. A real influence on

0:25:520:26:07

the first half, Tyrone McCarthy. I

think he has earned a penalty...

0:26:070:26:13

Danny Washbrook isn't happy. At the

stroke of half-time, Robert Lui...

0:26:130:26:21

And Salford hit the front! Just over

one hour has gone. It is a real arm

0:26:210:26:31

wrestle. A breakthrough for Johnson!

Does he have support? It's a real

0:26:310:26:37

opportunity for Salford. Littlejohn,

the Australian scrum-half, with his

0:26:370:26:45

first try for the club too! Robert

Lui has been terrific all night, and

0:26:450:26:55

he is terrific again! That could be

the try that wraps it up. Time is

0:26:550:26:59

running out. It is a big win for

Salford, this. Logan Tomkins, moving

0:26:590:27:07

it quickly over... And Johnson will

score! 9.9 for artistic impression

0:27:070:27:12

but it is four defeats from six

matches for the black and whites.

We

0:27:120:27:17

made a couple of errors at the start

of the game. That is worrying, after

0:27:170:27:22

last week at Castleford. The boys

knew the job last night -- tonight

0:27:220:27:26

and they knew what was expected.

They delivered. They deserve all

0:27:260:27:30

they got out.

I asked for every kick

to be a competition. They have

0:27:300:27:36

conceded more tries than anyone

else. I ask for every kick to be a

0:27:360:27:41

competition. If you do those

percentages committee would probably

0:27:410:27:44

gather that was not the case. It is

a disappointment.

All of the guys

0:27:440:27:49

here know, they are valued here and

we want to keep them, they want to

0:27:490:27:52

be here. We did not want to lose

O'Brien but he made a decision on

0:27:520:27:57

the back of a very good offer to

him. And his family. In any walk of

0:27:570:28:04

life, if you get a massive pay rise

and you are offered the chance to do

0:28:040:28:09

that, then most people will accept

it, especially with the kind of

0:28:090:28:12

money that he was looking at. I

can't blame him for that.

That was a

0:28:120:28:16

heck of a win for Salford after a

difficult

0:28:160:28:19

heck of a win for Salford after a

difficult week for them?

0:28:190:28:21

Yes, they do have a really good team

ethic there. To put a performance in

0:28:210:28:26

like that, from a bit of chaos

created earlier in the week. With

0:28:260:28:32

Gareth O'Brien making that move. It

shows a lot of heart and courage. I

0:28:320:28:36

feel like they have put out a big

performance. They have shown skill

0:28:360:28:40

and top-class drive.

And Robert Lui

really leading from the front?

Yes

0:28:400:28:48

committee is an elusive player. One

of those players you look at, he

0:28:480:28:54

catches your eye and you have to

notice. And make preparations for

0:28:540:29:00

defending against him.

You said that

Watson is a good coach, and one that

0:29:000:29:05

the players are right behind?

He can

galvanise the team after disruption,

0:29:050:29:11

losing a good player like Gareth

O'Brien. They have really fixed on

0:29:110:29:15

their game. They have a great team

ethic. He has done a great job. Hull

0:29:150:29:21

are not bad themselves.

For them, is

it a blip or will they be more

0:29:210:29:26

worried about it?

I can think of the

few reasons as to why they would not

0:29:260:29:31

be as fluid as they are at the

moment. They have good players.

0:29:310:29:36

Every team wants their best players

to have a good show. The game last

0:29:360:29:41

week took a lot out of Hull against

Leeds Rhinos. They were not ready

0:29:410:29:47

go. And I think the coach himself

has said that they were second best.

0:29:470:29:52

It's a fair indication of what

Salford did on the night.

Were you

0:29:520:29:57

conscious of facing a team without

Halton and Kelly in it?

Yes, you

0:29:570:30:03

register to play against him. He is

a leader, one of those players that

0:30:030:30:07

really enforces what Hull are about,

and you have Albert Kelly, who can

0:30:070:30:13

score those tries. They make a

really big difference. That was

0:30:130:30:17

probably something going into the

game last week against Hull, that

0:30:170:30:20

week cannot have accounted for. Of

course you talk about Jake Connor,

0:30:200:30:25

playing out of position and things

like that, it culminated in a

0:30:250:30:33

performance that work for us. And

going into that game against

0:30:330:30:35

Salford, it may have played into

that, for Hull's performance. And

0:30:350:30:41

they may have been tired and

struggling.

To two teams looking to

0:30:410:30:46

get upwardly mobile,

0:30:460:30:47

struggling.

To two teams looking to

get upwardly mobile, on Thursday

0:30:470:30:48

night it was Huddersfield against

Hull KR.

0:30:480:30:52

COMMENTATOR: They are applying all

of the pressure, can they make

0:30:520:30:55

something of it? The effort was

made... Held up within sight of the

0:30:550:31:03

line. Roberts is over! They finally

get their numbers. And they get the

0:31:030:31:11

gaps as well. Huddersfield,

deservedly, with the opening points

0:31:110:31:16

of the night. It was coming. They

are switching back towards the

0:31:160:31:25

right-hand side. Quick hands from

Quinlan. How classy was that from

0:31:250:31:33

the Australian? Wonderful stuff,

Hull Kingston Rovers with their

0:31:330:31:38

response, and they love it, the

travelling supporters. Taken down

0:31:380:31:47

the middle, again. Heffernan,

stepping away on his left foot.

0:31:470:31:57

Classy stuff again! The centre is

having quite a night already.

0:31:570:32:04

Quinlan was the beneficiary this

time. Great stuff from Hull KR.

0:32:040:32:15

Tommy Lee... Mose Masoe, driving in

and driving in. The referee gives a

0:32:150:32:23

penalty. Just unable to get clear

there. You can see his involvement,

0:32:230:32:33

he climbs on the back of Mose Masoe.

The referee says it is a penalty. An

0:32:330:32:38

important kick for Ryan Shaw. Hull

Kingston Rovers with a two score

0:32:380:32:42

lead. That is exactly what he has

done. 14-6, 30 minutes played.

0:32:420:32:50

Atkin. Apart from the opening seven

minutes or so, Hull have been the

0:32:500:32:56

dominant side. They have shown real

verve and tenacity in equal measure.

0:32:560:33:09

Tommy Lee, now they go wide again!

That was lovely, that little kick.

0:33:090:33:16

For Ryan Shaw, that kick was

exquisite. The finish putting in

0:33:160:33:26

two. The referee, on the advice of

his touch judge, is going for a

0:33:260:33:30

video replay.

We are going to try.

Obstruction in backplate...

Let's

0:33:300:33:38

have a look at the obstruction here.

Kingston Rovers looking to take it

0:33:380:33:46

wide, no obstruction there, you

would save. Some commitment from the

0:33:460:33:51

outside backs. A misread from the

Outside-backs rather than any kind

0:33:510:33:56

of obstruction, that would have left

a huge gap. This should be a tribe.

0:33:560:34:04

Hull Kingston Rovers with their

third try of the first half. And a

0:34:040:34:08

commanding lead to boot. He has

every right to be satisfied. Leaning

0:34:080:34:20

and going wide... Trying to cut in.

Held up just short. That is still

0:34:200:34:26

definitely need to score next. Broth

coming up left... A little kick and

0:34:260:34:31

taking the deflection. Rob Mulhern!

Look at him go! Charging away. He

0:34:310:34:37

tries to push him away, the prop

forward is still going. Out of the

0:34:370:34:42

grasp, Germain McGillvary, turning

it inside, what a finish! From the

0:34:420:34:52

prop forward, Rob Mulhern. Well,

they are going for a replay... Just

0:34:520:35:00

making sure it was who we thought it

was. Rob Mulhern going all that way.

0:35:000:35:07

They are looking offside at the

kick... It seems to be OK. Off he

0:35:070:35:17

went, determination and! Was he

going to go the distance? Denny

0:35:170:35:22

breath, brushed away. Germain

McGillvary, could not complete the

0:35:220:35:25

tackle. He may have competed himself

but he makes sure of the try. --

0:35:250:35:39

Danny Brough. Hull KR looking for

their second win of the season in

0:35:390:35:43

the driving seat. Lee, pushed back

down the middle here. Tommy Lee,

0:35:430:35:55

just waiting and measuring the

situation. Inside and out, it goes

0:35:550:36:01

right again... Andrew Hefernan

striding through again. Timing the

0:36:010:36:08

past... An easy finish for Ryan Shaw

again. They looked very classy as

0:36:080:36:15

they have gone wide, Hull Kingston

Rovers, what a performance from them

0:36:150:36:18

tonight. Easy, easy, charmed the

crowd. Mose Masoe taking it in, with

0:36:180:36:34

sheer determination. A well earned

break on the sidelines! Hull KR,

0:36:340:36:40

going wide again here. They want

another, Ryan Shaw putting his foot

0:36:400:36:45

down. Inside the past... Claiming

forward, but Danny McGuire will not

0:36:450:36:50

stand and wait for any decision from

the referee. He glides over. It is a

0:36:500:36:58

crowning try for a regal performance

for Hull Kingston Rovers tonight.

0:36:580:37:02

Second win of the season in the bag

and boy, haven't they done it well?

0:37:020:37:07

STUDIO: You know Rob Mulhern from

his time here at Leeds Rhinos, could

0:37:070:37:11

you believe that break?

No! That's a

world of pain! To have had that in

0:37:110:37:19

the tank, fitness wise, that is

remarkable. I know him quite well

0:37:190:37:23

from being at lead say few years

ago. Played in the championship for

0:37:230:37:27

a year. -- from being at Leeds. He's

come back and made a mark. Almost

0:37:270:37:36

making the decision to look at his

diet and look at his lifestyle. You

0:37:360:37:40

can see how it is paying off on the

field.

He has clearly been doing a

0:37:400:37:45

few sprints.

Very impressive! A heck

of a win for Hull KR.

Tim Keene said

0:37:450:37:53

100% completion in the first off, he

doesn't think he has ever had a side

0:37:530:37:57

that has done that.

It is rare,

those kinds of numbers gives your

0:37:570:38:01

team the opportunity to win. It

strangles any opportunities of

0:38:010:38:04

winning. We cannot take away from

the fact that he has an outstanding

0:38:040:38:09

coach. 500 or 600 top level games

that he has coached. Of your game,

0:38:090:38:15

with set plays, they are really well

organised. Maguire has that speed

0:38:150:38:20

and finishing touch, but you can

clearly see that they are already

0:38:200:38:23

working hard for each other.

You

played against Chris Atkin at Elland

0:38:230:38:28

Road. They have been looking for a

half but Tim Sheens Lane, maybe we

0:38:280:38:32

have the half-back pairing that we

need

we were talking, before the

0:38:320:38:44

game, and Atkin really shone,

causing issues. He was brilliant.

0:38:440:38:48

Maybe psychologically, that kind of

motivates you as a player. There is

0:38:480:38:55

talk about bringing another half, or

looking at a different way to

0:38:550:38:59

present the team. Atkin obviously

took it upon himself and has put up

0:38:590:39:03

his hand, saying that he will look

to be that half, and play for his

0:39:030:39:07

team. You know, he's not a bad

teacher to happen that aspect.

Are

0:39:070:39:14

you scratching your head with

Huddersfield's form this season?

0:39:140:39:18

They have been stop start. Good bits

and bad bits, but to me, they looked

0:39:180:39:24

a little flat. We don't know why.

But you have to give full credit to

0:39:240:39:30

Hull KR. They looked after the ball,

they looked incisive and really

0:39:300:39:35

sharp on the fringes. Set plays came

off.

Do you think they were taken

0:39:350:39:40

for granted a bit by Huddersfield?

If you have that kind of mentality,

0:39:400:39:47

and by no means am I suggesting that

they have, but if you go anywhere

0:39:470:39:51

near, you will be beaten. There are

many teams that will get you. You

0:39:510:39:56

have to do all the little things

that you are prepared to do, maybe

0:39:560:40:00

they didn't?

Tanya Arnold presents highlights and analysis from the latest round of matches in the Super League.

The two most successful clubs in the competition's history meet as St Helens take on Leeds. Between them they have been champions in 14 of the 22 seasons so far, and have faced each other in four grand finals. After an impressive start to the season St Helens have been installed as favourites to win the Super League title again this year, but as defending champions, Leeds are looking for another win against their old rivals.

Two more title-chasing teams meet at The Jungle as Castleford take on Wigan. They met three times in 2017, with the Tigers victorious on all three occasions as they went on to lift the League Leaders shield. Catalans are at home to Warrington, Salford meet Hull FC, Huddersfield play Hull KR and Wakefield take on Widnes.
