The comeback is ON! Seriously, a very nicely-made try for Newcastle, converted for 12:54.

As the Thunder players tire, Sangare's runs are really having an effect.

Hitchcox goes in for his 4th try, and the conversion takes Toulouse's score to 82.

WSL St Helens v Wigan has kicked off. To be honest, I don't give the visitors much of a chance here, as Saints have been the form team this season by a distance. Here's hoping Wigan put up a good fight.

Currently St Helens 4:0 Wigan

St Helens leading 26:0 on 50 minutes. Wigan are defending decently, but the home side are just taking their opportunities and edging steadily ahead.

Switching over to the Wheelchair GF on Sky Sports Mix, Leeds have just scored the first try - 6 nil.

This is a sensational game so far. If you’re not watching, do yourself a favour and watch the wheelchair GF. 

Fascinating to see how well this version of the game works as a sport.

It's a great contest too.

Old Faithful we never lose at Wembley

It is so much more Rugby-like than the Olympic version of the game. That's what makes it more satisfying, at least for me.

Yup. The Olympic version is more like NFL which I’m led to believe is where it evolved from

For me, the Olympic version is like Wheelchair Basketball without the hoops. Round balls, forward passes, no touchdowns, no "kicks", pah!

A diving try in the corner, but with bits of metal involved. Let's hope he's not badly hurt.

Saints 52 Wigan 0 in WSL.

Wasn`t as one-sided as might appear. Wigan are struggling with their attacking game. Very little shape and poor execution when they do move the ball.

There were about half a dozen leg injuries incurred, including to key Saints players Jodie Cunningham and Emily Rudge, although both were walking after the game. I still don`t know whether this has a biological explanation, but there`s no doubt leg injuries are a major problem in women`s RL. It demonstrates the wisdom in limiting and staggering the number of games they play. There`s no point in a busier schedule if it just leads to more forfeits.

The position for the first Saints try in the second half was set up by a repeat set forced after a Saints Tackle 5 kick took advantage of the Wigan winger being up in the line until Tackle 6. Not that you`d have known it from the commentary team who didn`t spot the early kick, just wittered on about the Saints kick and chase. Astounding how consistently oblivious commentators are to the tactical elements of the tackle count. It`s a simple game, Dave.

Danika Priim was the pundit with Parky today. She must be aware of things like this when she`s out there playing. Perhaps the RFL perform a lobotomy on all their would-be commentators and pundits to ensure the requisite levels of ignorance and inarticulacy.

York 28 Cas 14 in the other game. Semi-finals next Sunday at the Totally Wicked.

I think they'd benefit from shorter matches maybe 30 minutes each way. Though I think they've come on fitness wise since 2019, being a fitter side is or will be an increasing big advantage in a part time game.
