Round-up: Hull KR ruin Parish's big day to keep play-off hopes alive
Monday 18 July 2011
Salford failed to welcome their new coach Matt Parish with a win at Hull KR yesterday. Vinnie Anderson gave them a first-half lead but Ben Galea and Matt Cook tries steered Rovers to a 21-8 victory that keeps them challenging for a top-eight place.
Huddersfield went down heavily at Bradford. The game was won by half-time, with two tries from Paul Sykes instrumental in setting them on their way to an eventual 36-0 win.
Chris Bridge, playing in the unfamiliar position of loose forward, scored four tries as Warrington won 54-24 at Harlequins on Saturday. Matt King was carried off for Wolves after a blow to the head but is expected to be fit for the Challenge Cup tie against Wigan on Saturday.
Crusaders were on their way to a first win in eight games over Castleford, until Rob Parker forced his way over with three minutes to play. Two goals from Kirk Dixon sealed an unconvincing 26-20 win for the Tigers.
Leon Pryce returned for St Helens and played a part in the 40-18 victory over the Catalan Dragons on Friday. The biggest contributor, however, came from Jamie Foster, who scored his first Super League hat-trick.
There was a hat-trick, too, for Gareth Hock in Wigan's 48-6 thrashing of Wakefield. Equally outstanding was Sam Tomkins with two tries in another glittering display at full-back.
Leeds did something they have not achieved for almost two years by holding Hull scoreless at Headingley on the way to a 20-0 win that eases the danger of them missing the play-offs.
