Round 7 Team of the Week

Home advantage proved key in Round 7 as five of six Betfred Super League games ended with the home team taking the two points.

Wigan Warriors edged a thriller against Hull FC on Thursday Night thanks to more magic from Jai Field. The Warriors full-back scored two tries during yet another Player of the Match performance to earn Wigan six wins from their opening seven.  

Hull FC’s Joe Lovodua was inspirational in defeat as well. Lovodua produced two outlandish assists to keep the Black & White fight alive, sadly to avail after a late Warriors drop goal.

St Helens added to the Rhinos’ woes thanks to a five-try haul at Headingley. Tommy Makinson was on hand to score two tries for the Saints as well as 197 metres at an average gain of 15, whilst teammate Jonny Lomax scored an outrageous solo try during the latter stages of the contest, chipping a kick over the Rhinos defence before collecting and scoring.

Elsewhere, Huddersfield put in a giant performance to slay the Dragons – experienced prop Chris Hill put in an industrious performance, carrying for just short of 200 metres from 24 carries whilst making 32 tackles and missing none.

The Robins made it four Super League defeats on the bounce for Warrington after downing the Wolves at a packed Sewell Group Craven Park. Hooker Matt Parcell was everywhere for Hull KR – running for 224 metres, making 10 tackle busts, two clean breaks and 16 runs from dummy half.

Lee Radford’s Cas side got an important win at to Toulouse on Friday. Liam Watts and Jordan Turner led the Tigers charge and were massively influential to their win in Round 7.

The last game of the round saw Wakefield get past Salford on Sunday. Tom Johnstone produced a magical first half display before leaving the field injured – the flying winger scored two tries, set up another, made 12 tackle busts and four clean breaks.
