Rangi Chase scored four tries as Castleford pulled out of their slump of four Super League defeats to beat Harlequins 56-24. Quins, now without a win in ten, led 14-6 in the first half and had Chris Riley announcing his arrival on loan from Warrington with two tries.

But Chase ran riot in the second half, with Kirk Dixon the other major contributor with a try and eight goals.

Another depressing run ended at Odsal, where Bradford won their first game in seven league outings, despite a hat-trick of tries from Salford's Mark Henry in their 26-14 defeat. Half-backs Ben Jeffries and Kyle Briggs bossed the show for the Bulls against the City Reds, who expect to announce their new coach this week.

The Catalan Dragons kept up their drive for a top-eight finish with a convincing 42-22 win away to Wakefield. The Wildcats led through an early Greg Johnson try, but they proved to be leg-weary after last week's gruelling Cup-tie defeat against Castleford.

Wingers Frederic Vaccari and Damien Blanch both scored two tries, while Clint Greenshields got one on his return from injury.

Warrington maintained the momentum at the top of the table on Friday night, with a commanding 42-6 victory at Leeds. Lee Briers scored the first and last tries for the Wolves, who were superior in all departments.

The only flicker of light for the Rhinos was Danny Buderus' try, which is now the only one scored against Warrington in their last four games.

Jamie Foster scored 16 points, from two tries and four goals, as St Helens beat the bottom club, Crusaders, by 28-12.
