All matches played Easter Monday. I'll do the tables after I've seen
Halifax lose to Classy Cas' tonight.
Bradford B 31 - 24 London B
Bradford: T - Paul 2, Dwyer, Fairbank; G - Cook 7; DG Cook
London: T - Roskell 2, Gill, Tollet; G - Dynevor 4
HT: 12 - 14
Good close game that could easily have been spoiled by the officials.
In the act of scoring his second try Scott Roskell over ran the narrow
in-goal area at Odsal and put his knee dead before the ball was on the
ground. The try which Bradford scored through Fairbank to pull level
at 18 all came from a forward pass and a knock on whilst the ball was
being placed on the ground. For both tries the referee over ruled the
correct calls from the in-goal judges to award the tries. Other than
that it was a close, competitive match and on the basis of both teams
performances they're both easily top four material.
Leeds 24 - 46 St.Helens
Leeds: T - Cummins 2, Hassan, Fallon; G - Holroyd3, Cummins
Saints: T - Arnold 2, Hunte, Northey, Newlove, Cunningham,
Martyn; G - Goulding 9
HT: 14 - 20
Another storming performance from Saints puts them firmly at the top
of the table. After a slow start from both sides the game picked up
after strong defence from Saints saw them win the ball and open the
scoring through Arnold. Leeds edged ahead but a blitz from Saints just
before half time put them into a lead they never lost. Leeds are now
joint bottom of the table with Workington further emphasising the
troubles at Headingley this season.
Paris St.Germain 24 - 24 Oldham
PSG: T - Bomati, Cabestany, Entat, Luchesse; G - Torreilles 4
Oldham: T - Munro, Maloney, Patmore; G - Maloney 4
HT: 14 - 4
Paris maintained their unbeaten home record after they scored an
equalising converted try through Pascal Bomati in the dying minutes of
the game. After initially trailing 4-2, Oldham picked up the pace and
scored two tries in as many minutes to put them in front at the break.
Once again, the enthusiam of the Parisians never faltered and when the
Oldham full back failed to clean up a chip kick Entat put Bomati in at
the corner to give Paris three points from three games.
Wigan 42 - 12 Warrington
Pies: Edwards 2, Paul, Smyth, Radlinski, Haughton, Johnson; G -
Farrel 6, Paul
Wire: T - Knott, Koha-Love; G - Harris 2
HT: 16 - 0
In stark contrast to the Good Friday loss against Saints, Shaun
Edwards had plenty of room to move around in against Warrington and
the score line shows the result. It was hardly vintage Wigan with two
tries coming from a good bounce of the ball rather than the work of
the Wigan side but it's a convincing win none the less against an in
form Warrington side.
Workington 22 - 54 Sheffield
Town: Allen, Smith, Phillips; G - Marwood 5
Eagles: Garcia 2, Sodje 2, McAllister, Sheridan, Farrell, Cook,
Hay, Senior; G - Aston 7
HT: 16 - 20
It gets worse for Town with a dismal 2,000 crowd turning out to see
their third successive Super League defeat aganst Sheffield.

Featherstone 52 - 12 Dewsbury
Huddersfield 28 - 16 Rochdale
Keighley 34 - 30 Hull
