Dacia Magic Weekend Review

The Dacia Magic Weekend took place at Anfield last weekend and what a fantastic couple of days of Betfred Super League action we had!

All 12 teams were involved across the two days and it started with a thrilling game as Wakefield Trinity took on French outfit Catalans Dragons. Both sides have been in and around the top four for the majority of the season so far, and it was Catalans who came away with a priceless victory.

An entertaining affair was all square at 18-18 before a late surge from Catalans, which included a Tony Gigot drop goal and a second Ben Garcia try, was enough to seal a 25-18 win.

Next up was the clash between Hull FC and Huddersfield Giants, and we had a staggering result as fourth-placed Hull were overwhelmed by a sensational Huddersfield side.

They ran in 10 tries to stun the opposition and the record the club’s biggest ever victory at Magic Weekend. Adam O’Brien, Darnell McIntosh and Jermaine McGillvary all bagged a brace to bring their side to within just four points of Hull in the Betfred Super League table.

The first day of action ended with a repeat of last year’s Grand Final, but this time it was Warrington Wolves who came out on top as they defeated Wigan Warriors 26-14. Defeat for Wigan leaves them in ninth but a run of victories could propel a few sides from the bottom half of the table back into top four contention.

Sunday saw a couple of very closely fought matches, the first of which was Hull KR’s narrow 22-20 victory over Salford Red Devils.

Ryan Shaw’s late penalty ended up being the difference between the two teams after his team came from 14-0 down, as a priceless Anfield victory opened up a two-point gap between Hull KR and bottom side London Broncos.

It was London Broncos who were up next, as they faced Leeds Rhinos. Leeds raced ahead with tries from Liam Sutcliffe and Ash Handley but they had to hold on at the end in the face a stubborn fightback from their opponents. The 24-22 victory also means that Leeds, like Hull KR, are now two points clear of London Broncos.

The final match of an enthralling weekend saw leaders St Helens face Castleford Tigers. A St Helens side who have only lost once in the Betfred Super League this season made light work of their opponents. Their six-point lead at the top was restored courtesy of a 36-16 victory.
