Martyn Sadler, the editor of Rugby League Express, reveals which players earned Game Star awards from our reporters in the weekend’s Super League games.
Widnes Vikings 20 Castleford Tigers 40 – Daryl Clark
Reporter: Steve Fox
“The hooker was on top form. International form, to be precise.”
Bradford Bulls 30 Catalan Dragons 32 – Luke Gale
Reporter: Aaron Bower
“Luke Gale was sensational in defeat for the Bulls. If the club can hang on to him in the Championship it will be nothing short of a miracle.”
Hull FC 18 Warrington Wolves 24– Matty Russell
Reporter: Pete Stephenson
“Matty Russell was excellent in all departments. Solid under the high ball, a real threat with ball in hand and the fullback came up with two brilliant pieces of offensive and defensive magic.”
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 16 Leeds Rhinos 14– Richard Mathers
Reporter: Keith McGhie
“A textbook defensive effort allied to an attacking prowess that helped finally prise the game from his former club’s hands.”
Huddersfield Giants 10 Salford Red Devils 36 – Rangi Chase
Reporter: Gareth Walker
“The last few weeks have seen a new, more controlled yet still exciting Chase. He was central to everything for the Red Devils.”
London Broncos 6 Wigan Warriors 56 – Josh Charnley
Reporter: Michael Butcher
“Josh Charnley did a winger’s job perfectly. He took every chance he had to score, fielded the ball well and never seemed to lose a collision when running early in the tackle count.”
Hull Kingston Rovers 40 St Helens 10 – Travis Burns
Reporter: Paul Clarke
“There were many contenders for man of the match – all of them from the Robins – but the most influential player on the field for Hull KR was Travis Burns. His creativity and Drive helped Rovers pull away in the second half.”
