PDRL round-up

PDRL round-up

Adam Hills scored an interception try to inflict a first defeat of the PDRL season on Leeds Rhinos – allowing both Hills’s Warrington team and Wakefield Trinity to join Leeds at the top of the table.

The Rhinos came into the third PDRL Festival of the season, at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle in Castleford, with a 100% record from their four matches.

But Hills’s try pinched a 10-6 win for the Wolves, which they followed with an 18-6 victory against Wigan.

Meanwhile the hosts had played some sparkling rugby to secure a 52-6 win against Wigan, setting up the last game of the day perfectly – a derby between Castleford and Wakefield.

The game didn’t disappoint, with Darren Dean scoring a crucial try in an 18-12 win for Wakefield which lifted them level with Warrington and Leeds.

That sets up an intriguing finish to the PDRL season, with further festivals in Warrington next month and then in Blackpool in September.
