Saints See Off Rovers

St Helens were really made to work for their victory over the Rovers, the sides went into the half all square at 10-10 after first half tries from Naomi Williams and Tara Jones for the Saints, meanwhile good friend of RLATG Kayleigh Bulman grabbed 2 tries to see the Rovers into the second 40 level pegging. Andrea Dobson was sent for 10 minutes early in the second half, Saints taking advantage of the extra space, Gaskin, Crowl and Jones all going over to make it 28-10 before Dobson was allowed to return to the field. obson clawed the gap back slightly with a try of her own but it was too little too late as two more Saints tries from Faye Gaskin and Roxy Mura would give St Helens an impressive 40-14 victory over Featherstone.
Rhinos Edge Past Warriors

The Leeds Rhinos recorded their second win of the season to see them beat the Wigan Warriors in a tight contest. Captain Lois Forsell crossed the stripe in the first eight minutes of the game for the opening try, Marshall converting to give the Rhinos an early 6-0 lead. Wigan soon hit back from a delicate cross-field kick which was collected expertly by Joanie Aspin, Michelle Davis converting to level the game after 14 minutes. Australian Courtney Hill would announce her arrival to the WSL with a huge 80 metre try as she raced away on her debut for the Rhinos, Marshall once more converting. Wigan winger Michelle Davis would be on the end of a well structured line play from the Warriors to put them right back in the game, Davis converting her own kick to level the score at 12-12, Davis would then put her side up 14-12 with a penalty just before halftime.

The Rhinos would open the scoring for the second half, Shannon Lacey putting the visitors back in-front to make it 16-12, Marshall missing her first kick of the day. Charlotte Booth would confirm the Rhinos victory as she went on an angled run to ground out-wide, Marshall unable to convert the kick but the Rhinos running out 20-14 winners.

Tigers Put 40 On The Bulls

The Tigers hit the front after 3 quick tries in the first 30 minutes, Lacey Owen opening the scoring early on before Grace Field crashed over and finally Tara Stanley would also use her strength to power over and stretch out, Tara Stanley kicking 3 out of 3. Macdonald would pull one back for the Bulls but shortly after Kelsey Gentles sprinted down the wing to score for the Tigers to see them into the half with a 22-4 lead.
