St Helens maintained their lead at the top of the Super League at the weekend with their 40-22 home win over Catalan Dragons, but they continue to be followed by the league's surprise package.

The league leaders did most of the damage in the early part of the game against the French side, as they established a 24-0 lead through tries from Tommy Makinson (2), Josh Jones and Jordan Turner.

Catalan staged a brief reprieve before the break with two quick tries, but James Roby provided the gamebreaker when he set up forward Louis McCarthy-Scarsbrook for the home side's fifth try just after the interval.

The surprise package that continue to follow Saints are the Castleford Tigers.   

Yet again they showed their potential with their fifth win in five after edging out Hull FC 19-16 at home.

Former Salford player Marc Sneyd was instrumental in the Tigers win, scoring 11 points with a try, three goals and a drop-goal.

Meanwhile, Warrington Wolves made three wins in row in Super League after their impressive 28-12 victory on the road against Salford Red Devils.

For the second week running the Wolves showed the power of their defence with a solid performance proving that they are hitting some momentum after losing their opening two games of the season.

Elsewhere, Leeds inflicted the first defeat of the season on Widnes with a 38-4 triumph, Wigan got only their second win of the season after beating Hull KR 34-20.

Huddersfield smashed Bradford on the road in a 12-try 66-18 rout, and Wakefield scored 50 or more points for the second straight week in their 50-22 demolition of London.
