In the battle at the top of the table Leeds Rhinos secured a 38-19 victory over St Helens.

Saints had lead 19-14 at half time after tries from Steve Tyrer, James Roby and Paul Wellens, with the Rhinos scoring through Scott Donald and Danny McGuire.

But four tries without reply in the second half saw the Rhinos move above the Saints in the table, with Clinton Toopi, Jamie Peacock, Brent Webb, and Robert Burrow all crossing over.

However it was Bradford that moved to the top the table after they beat Hull FC 22-32. Again, it was an excellent second half display that proved to win the game.

At half-time the score was narrowly poised at 12-10 to Hull after tries from Richard Swaine and Shaun Briscoe, before two tries in quick succession by James Evans and Terry Newton pulled Bradford back.

Kirk Yeaman scored early after the break to extend Hull’s lead. But tries from Ben Harris, Joe Vagana, and Andy Lynch as well as Evans’ second try sealed the win for the Bulls.

Wigan Warriors bounced back to form when they beat Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 44-10.

Two tries each from Trent Barrett and Chris Ashton, as well as scores from David Vaeliki, Pat Richards and Darrell Goulding saw the Warriors move up to fourth in the table.

The Wildcats only managed tries from Ben Jefferies and Jason Demetriou.

Huddersfield Giants continued their fine form to beat Harlequins 46-16.

The Gaints scored tries from Jamaal Lolesi, Paul Reilly and Steve Snitch in the first period. Quins answered with two from Chad Randall and Tyrone Smith.

The Giants continued to dominate in the second half when Snitch and Randall both scored their second, as well as Chris Thorman, Chris Nero, and Stephen Wild going over.

London grabbed a late try through Jon Grayshon.

Salford City Reds won a crucial game at the bottom of the table, beating relegation rivals Hull KR 28-24.

An early blitz saw John Wilshere, Luke Dorn and Aaron Moule all score for the Reds inside of 10 minutes.

But tries from Jim Gannon, Mark O’Neill, and Mark Lennon brought the Robins back into the tie.

Both sides managed two more a-piece with Luke Robinson and David Hodgson scoring for Salford. John Goddard scored for Hull KR, and a last minute try from Andreas Bauer left the game extremely tight.

The 8 points from John Wilshere’s boot in the end proved to be the difference yet Salford still remain at the bottom of the table despite the win.

Les Catalan Dragons recorded a 27-16 win over Warrington Wolves.

Two Ben Westwood tries and a score from Henry Faa’fili were all the Wolves had to show for.

The win sees the Dragons move up to sixth in the league, with their tries coming from Oliver Charles, Casey McGuire, Alex Chan and Thomas Bosc.

Crossley’s future tips are as follows:

Giants to beat Robins by 18, Rhinos to beat Dragons by 30, Warriors to beat Reds by 16, Saints to beat Quins by 28, Hull FC to beat Wildcats by 12, Bulls to beat Wolves by 30. - Read More, Here
