Who were the Super League stars at the weekend?
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.
Hull Kingston Rovers 22 Huddersfield Giants 26 – Danny Brough
Reporter: Pete Stephenson
“It wasn’t his best game, but Danny Brough did enough at crucial points of the game to ensure his side came away with the spoils after a long drought in Humberside.”
Wigan Warriors 12 St Helens 16 – Jon Wilkin
Reporter: David Kuzio
“Jon Wilkin had to shoulder a lot of responsibility once Luke Walsh left the field and he led by example in both attack and defence, his kicking game swaying it for Saints.”
London Broncos 24 Widnes Vikings 42 – Kevin Brown
Reporter: Michael Butcher
“Kevin Brown was unstoppable, almost faultless in both attack and defence.”
Castleford Tigers 14 Salford Red Devils 10 – Niall Evalds
Reporter: Aaron Bower
“Niall Evalds excelled from fullback for Salford – he’ll provide healthy competition for the shortly-due Kevin Locke.”
Leeds Rhinos 32 Catalan Dragons 31 – Sam Williams
Reporter: Phil Caplan
“Jamie Peacock, in the captain’s role, was typically relentless, Morgan Escare thrilling, but Sam Williams was superb with ball in hand and his kicking on a memorable full dabut, which should have seen him on the winner’s podium.
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 20 Hull FC 20 – Jamie Shaul
Reporter: Keith McGhie
“A far from faultless performance, but the man who had scored eight tries in Hull’s previous six games was invariably involved when something notable happened.”
Warrington Wolves 50 Bradford Bulls 24 – Stefan Ratchford
Reporter: Gareth Walker
“Stefan Ratchford just edged halfback partner Gareth O’Brien with an influential display throughout.
