Hull KR 26 Harlequins RL 10
Hull KR failed to maintain their impressive start to their season and came back down to earth with a bump as they couldn’t deal with a determined Harlequins side as the Londoners ran out 26-10 victors.
The Robins had won their two previous fixtures but the defence which had looked rock steady in their opening two top flight games fell short of the standard set by coach Justin Morgan - and they paid the price.
Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 36 Salford City Reds 24
Wakefield kept the pressure on the top two with a 36-24 victory over Salford.
Second-half tries by Kevin Henderson and Tevita Latu put Wildcats in control at 28-14.
But Gareth Haggerty started and finished an 80-metre interception try on 68 minutes, and Daley Williams touched down wide out to set up a tense final four minutes of an absorbing clash at 30-24 after Jamie Rooney had put over a seemingly match-saving penalty.
Rooney then popped up in the final seconds to touch down and make the game safe. His conversion also took his points tally for the afternoon to 20.
Warrington Wolves 25 Hull FC 24
Last season's Grand Final runners-up Hull are still searching for their first win of the new season after throwing away a 12-0 lead at Warrington en route to a nailbiting 25-24 defeat.
The visitors even looked like snatching a draw with Matt Sing's late try and Paul Cooke's conversion making it 24-24.
But man of the match Lee Briers dropped a goal three minutes from time to secure victory for the home side.
Bradford Bulls 32 Wigan Warriors 28
Lesley Vainikolo grabbed a hat-trick to make it a disappointing homecoming for former boss Brian Noble as Bradford powered to a 32-28 win over Wigan on Saturday.
Wigan coach Noble, returning to Odsal for the first time since his departure last April, watched his side race into a 10-0 lead inside 13 minutes only to fade in the face of a terrific Bulls onslaught.
However the Warriors fought back bravely from 30-10 down to lose by only 4 points with a Leuluai try setting up a pulsating finish.
During the game Vainikolo took his remarkable try tally to 134 in 135 appearances and captain Paul Deacon scored his 2,000th point as the Bulls made it three wins out of three to top the table.
