No fewer than five Super League players are to appear before the RFL’s disciplinary panel this week for dangerous play in round six.

Huddersfield’s Darrell Griffin and Wakefield’s Tevita Leo-Latu were both dismissed and could face bans from 2-7 games.

Wigan’s Stuart Fielden and Les Catalans Adam Mogg and Jerome Guisett have also been cited for illegal actions and could miss matches over the hectic Easter period.

Leeds put their defeat to Castleford behind them to comprehensively beat Harlequins RL 48-0. The Rhinos showed why they are the World Club Champions, over powering and outrunning the Quins in a top of the table clash.

Brian McClennan’s outfit racked up 24 points in each half, scoring eight tries in total.

Rob Burrow scored his 100th try for the club and I’m sure there will be many more to follow from the English half back.

The Quins dearly missed the inventiveness of Henry Paul and Scott Hill, but it was their poor defence that handed to them an embarrassing result.

Leeds Rhinos 48 – Tries: Burrow, Jones-Buchanan, Peacock, Kaye, Burgess, Scruton, Webb, Tansey. Goals: Sinfield (8) Harlequins RL 0

Hull FC picked up their second win of Super League XIII defeating Wakefield 18-8. Todd Byrne grabbed a brace of tries for the Airlie Birds who ran out deserved winners in front of their home fans.

Danny Tickle kicked five goals to help Hull FC towards their second win of the comp.

Tevita Leo-Latu was dismissed for a high tackle on Adam Dykes in the second half, compounding John Kear and Wakefield’s misery.

Hull FC 18 – Tries: Byrne (2) Goals: Tickle (5) Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 8 – Tries: Ferguson Goals: Brough (2)

Hull KR came out on top at a foggy Craven Park to add further misery to bottom dwelling club Castleford 20-4 on Saturday. The visibility was so poor on Humberside that there were discussions going on pre kick-off about the game being called off.

The Tigers were blinded by Hull KR’s attacking attributes, storming into a 20-0 lead, thanks to a brace of tries from Fitzhenry and a try a piece from Cockayne and Walker on his return from injury.

Castleford grabbed a late conciliation try through Huby.

Hull Kingston Rovers 20 – Tries: Walker, Fitzhenry (2), Cockayne. Goals: Murrell (2) Castleford Tigers 4 – Tries: Huby

Les Catalans sprung the shock result of the round, defeating Challenge Cup holders St. Helens 24-10. Dimitri Pelo scored two tries out wide for the Dragons to help them towards their second win of the comp.

Alex Chan barged his way over under the sticks and Casty added another four pointer. Meli and Graham touched down for the Saints, whose poor defence lost them this one.

Les Catalans Dragons 24 – Tries: Chan, Casty, Pelo (2). Goals: Bosc (4) St. Helens 10 – Tries: Meli, Graham. Goals: Smith

Bradford saw off Warrington 23-10. Paul Deacon’s five goals and one field goal helped the Bulls climb up to sixth spot.

Bradford outscored Warrington by three tries to two, the pick coming from Ben Jeffries who ran 65 metres before crossing the whitewash.

Chris Hicks scored another try for the Wolves, putting him joint top of the try scoring charts with eight four pointers in six games. Next up for the Bulls is a derby match against table toppers Leeds.

Bradford Bulls 23 – Tries: Sykes, Jeffries, Burgess. Goals: Deacon (5) Drop goals: Deacon Warrington Wolves 10 – Tries: Johnson, Hicks. Goals: Briers

Wigan scored two tries in the final four minutes of play to narrowly defeat Huddersfield 20-19.

The two teams were level 8-8 at half time. Kevin Brown scored a try then kicked a field goal with seven minutes remaining to put the Giants in a seemingly unassailable 19-8 lead.

But Huddersfield’s defence was tired and Coley and Carmont scored tries down Huddersfield’s right channel to put Wigan back into contention for the two points.

Pat Richards made sure of the win for the Warriors by converting George Carmont’s try from the touchline.

Huddersfield prop Darrell Griffin was then shown the red card late in the match for verbally abusing the official. Wigan move up into second spot on points difference.

Huddersfield Giants 19 – Tries: Robinson, Brown. Goals: Cudjoe (5) Field goals: Brown Wigan Warriors 20 – Tries: Coley, Carmont, Goulding. Goals: Richards (4)
