A review of Friday's action in the Betfred Super League where St Helens, Wigan and Warrington were among the winners.

Super League results

Review

Josh Griffin scored two tries as Hull FC dominated in the soaring temperatures of Perpignan with a 50-10 win over the Catalans Dragons.

Hull went behind early on but fought back to score eight tries, all converted by Marc Sneyd.

Warrington kept in touch with Super League leaders St Helens with a 30-6 victory over Wakefield at the Halliwell Jones stadium on Friday.

The win keeps the Wolves in second spot behind the Saints before the two sides meet next Friday night, while for Trinity it was their fifth straight Super League defeat and they are in danger of being dragged into the relegation dogfight as they continue to tumble down the table.

Winger Josh Charnley celebrated his 200th Super League appearance with a try, with others coming from Blake Austin, Mike Cooper, Jack Johnson and Ben Currie, with Dec Patton kicking five goals.

Wakefield's points came from a first-minute try from Ryan Hampshire and a Danny Brough conversion.

Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook grabbed a rare brace as St Helens continued their dominance at the top of the table with a 36-10 victory over relegation-threatened Leeds.

The game was over by half-time as Saints ran in four tries from four different scorers with the Rhinos failing to live with the intensity cranked up by Justin Holbrook's men.

The writing was on the wall after only four minutes of play as Saints raced to a 12-0 lead thanks to two easy scores from Kevin Naiqama and McCarthy-Scarsbrook.

Wigan continued their mid-season revival with a 38-22 triumph over Huddersfield, a third successive win that takes them to within two points of fourth-place Catalans Dragons.

The reigning champions held a narrow 18-12 interval lead at the John Smith's Stadium but dominated the second half to condemn their hosts to a third successive defeat.

The Giants, who won 14-6 at the DW Stadium earlier in the season, trailed 38-12 at one stage before staging a late rally that produced two consolation tries and gave them a flattering margin of defeat.

The Yorkshiremen, who had designs on a top-five place only a month ago, are now in serious relegation trouble, just two points above bottom club Hull KR.

Salford struck a crucial blow in the battle for a top-five finish as they leapfrogged Castleford with a hard-earned 26-16 win at the AJ Bell Stadium.

In-demand Australian scrum-half Jackson Hastings was once again inspirational for the Red Devils with a try and two assists, while full-back Niall Evalds notched his 17th Super League touch down of the season.
