One hundred percenters, the Leeds Rhinos had a trip to a windswept capital to take on a London Broncos side looking to bolster their Super a league 2017 by shocking their visitors.

Last week the Broncos defeated the Batley Bulldogs by a massive 76-16 to show their clear intentions for the Qualifiers. The Rhinos would have been looking forward to the artificial 4G pitch at the Trailfinders, exactly the same as the one that they practice on all week.

The Rhinos were clear favourites but wouldn't underestimate the Broncos.

Coming into the original derby match, Wigan Warriors were entertaining a Saints side who have won their last seven, and who knew that a win tonight would lift them above their old enemy into the all important fourth spot.

A win for the Warriors would send them four points clear of the Saints and come close to sealing their own top-four finish and a place in the play-offs.

Saints were still fuming over the suspensions of Luke Walsh and Luke Thompson but Wigan had their own problems and came into the Game without skipper Sean O'Loughlin and Dom Manfredi.

Hull FC had the chance to go three points clear at the top of Super League ahead of the remaining super eights round three fixtures. The Dragons needed a win to keep alive their outside chance of a top four finish.

The Airlie Birds were without skipper Gareth Ellis but welcomed back Marc Sneyd who missed out on last weeks victory. The Dragons were without Todd Carney and Pat Richards whose seasons have both ended following knee injuries, and who are the latest additions to a long injury list which also includes Broughton, Horo and Maria.

FC were strong favourites with the bookies with a win guaranteeing them a top four finish ahead of next Saturday's trip to Wembley.

It what was essentially a play-off for the play-offs St Helens welcomed the Catalans Dragons to Langtree Park for an encounter which would either see the Saints pull four points clear in fourth spot, or put the Catalans back on level terms with five rounds left.

Saints are unbeaten in their last six, their last loss coming on the road at tonight's opponents, the Catalans Dragons. The Dragons managed a win last week to halt a six game losing streak which stretched all the way back to that win over the Saints in early June. The Dragons were also victors when the two last met in St Helens.

The rest of the season was on the line for both clubs.

Round two of the Super Eights saw the league leaders Hull FC taking the trip to Widnes to take on a Vikings side who needed a win to keep their outside hopes of a play-off place alive.

FC lost at home to Castleford last week while the Vikings went down by sixteen points in the south of France against the Catalans. It was honours even in 2016 between these two, but the last time that Hull visited Widnes they got a walloping.

FC were missing half-back and kicker Marc Sneyd who picked up a knock in training, but the Vikings were missing a number of key players through injury and were clear underdogs with the bookies.

The final game of the opening weekend of the Super Eights saw Widnes Vikings travel to a sweltering south of France to take on the Catalans Dragons. The Dragons needed a win to keep in touch with the Saints after their win on Thursday night.

Anything other than a win for Widnes would see them facing an impossible task to reach the top four.

After looking nailed on for a top four finish earlier in the season the Dragons were now up against it, but the Vikings had never won in Perpignan.

When the Leeds Rhinos completed the treble at the end of 2015 you'd have got very long odds on them being involved in the 2016 super eights qualifiers and fighting for their Super League existence in 2017.

Today they made the short trip to Post Office Road to take on a Featherstone Rovers side who controlled their own destiny in beating the Bradford Bulls in the last round of the regular Championship season to leapfrog their opponents into the qualifiers and begin their quest for Super League.

Jon Sharp's Fev side came into the game looking for an upset but were up against a Rhinos side who had found form as the regular season ended and came into today's game on the back of five wins in their last six outings.

League leaders and Challenge Cup finalists Hull FC looked to maintain their top of the table form with a win over sixth placed Castleford Tigers.

Honours had been shared in the two games so far this season with a win apiece, both getting the two points on their travels, but FC were the big favourites with the bookies.

Much of the attention was on Rangi Chase, back in Castleford colours for the first time in three years after being their inspiration from 2009-2013.

The super eights got underway with the meeting of Warrington Wolves and St. Helens at the Halliwell-Jones Stadium, as second entertained fourth in the quest of a top four finish.

Honours have been shared so far this season, with both sides winning away from home, the latest encounter being the 26-4 win to the Wolves at Langtree Park in early June. Saints had won their last five going into this one whereas Warrington are unbeaten in their last seven.

Prior to tonight the Wolves had only beaten Saints once at the HJ but they were flying high after securing their Challenge Cup final place in last weekends win over Wakefield.

Challenge Cup semi-final two saw the supporters of Warrington Wolves and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats descend on the Leigh Sports Village for what the bookies thought would be a one-sided affair with the Wolves the strong favourite to make it to the final.

There were six league places between the two sides but with honours shared in their two Super League meetings this season the most recent memory will be of Wakefield's win by 36-28 back in May.

A game against Hull FC at Wembley on the 27th August awaited the winners of today's eighty minute battle.

The first of the weekends semi-finals took place at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster as league leaders Hull FC took on third placed Wigan Warriors for a place at Wembley at the end of August.

The bookies had named the Warriors as slight favourites despite them losing their last two games and finishing the regular rounds of Super a League two points behind FC. Honours are even so far this season with both sides winning on the road.

It was a full strength FC side but Wigan were without several first choice players including Frank-Paul Nuuausala who was suspended after fighting last week, and Josh Charnley serving the second of a two game ban for manhandling the referee.
