Bizarre is probably the best word to describe the Super League season so far. Round 10 produced yet more thrills, spills, comebacks and unexpected scorelines. Here’s six talking points from last weekend’s action.
1: Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are on a role.
The 62-0 demolition of Wigan Warriors was their fourth straight win and possibly finest Super League performance.
2: Danny Brough - hero and villain.
He was outstanding early on for Huddersfield Giants at Hull, but then picked up a needless yellow card which effectively cost them the game.
3: Castleford Tigers deserve huge credit for a remarkable 34-24 success at fading Widnes.
Missing nine players and 18-0 down on Vikings’ artificial pitch, there will be few better fightbacks this year.
4: With five straight wins under their belt and up to third, Hull look like genuine title contenders.
Marc Sneyd is in particularly good form.
5: Hull KR appeared a tired side in their 40-0 home loss to Catalans Dragons.
Without getting key players back their chances of avoiding the middle-eights look slim.
6: Defending champions Leeds Rhinos are in a pickle.
They are now six points behind eighth spot and showing few signs of improvement. Trips to Bradford and Leigh beckon.
