Saints clinch Leaders´ Shield as returning Manfredi inspires Wigan

15 septiembre 2018 00:29

St Helens secured the League Leaders' Shield in style on Friday as nearest rivals Wigan Warriors left it late to see off Warrington Wolves.

Saints are certain to finish the Super 8s on top of the table following a 38-12 triumph over Hull FC, Regan Grace crossing for two of the home side's six tries as they were crowned minor premiers for the first time since 2014.

Justin Holbrook's men only led 18-12 at the break but cut loose in the second half, scoring 20 points without reply to hand struggling Hull a ninth straight defeat.

Dom Manfredi marked his first-team comeback after nearly two years out with injury with a brace of tries in Wigan's 26-6 home win over Warrington.

The returning winger helped the Warriors see off their opponents in a feisty affair, both teams seeing a player sent to the sin bin during the second half at the DW Stadium.

Wigan only led 8-6 at one stage but a yellow card for Warrington's Tom Lineham led to a late barrage of points for the hosts, Ryan Sutton touching down after Manfredi's double.

There were two red cards in Wakefield Trinity's 34-22 triumph over Catalans Dragons but Tom Johnstone still stole the show.

The Wakefield winger crossed for a hat-trick - one of them a stunning long-range finish - to take his tally to the season to 24, with the result leaving the Dragons still waiting for a first win in the Super 8s.

Jacob Miller of Trinity and Catalans' Mika Simon were sent off after they clashed in the closing stages just after Wakefield's Craig Huby had returned from the sin bin.

Meanwhile, Salford's unbeaten run in the Qualifiers came to an end after a dramatic finish at Headingley, Liam Sutcliffe's last-minute penalty clinching an 18-16 victory for Leeds Rhinos.
