England Watch | Super League

England duo Stefan Ratchford and Josh Charnley were both on the scoresheet for Warrington this past weekend as the Wolves cruised past London, 48-12, at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Charnley's try took him to 11 for the current Betfred Super League season and means he still tops the try-scoring charts being the only player in double figures. Ratchford continues to impress in 2019, sitting fourth in the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel standings.

Ben Currie - who recently returned from a long-term injury - racked up a massive 47 tackles in Warrington's victory on Friday night. Daryl Clark and Chris Hill were also present as the Wolves maintained their position atop the Betfred Super League.

There was a total of six England players on show at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle this weekend as Castleford Tigers pulled off a memorable comeback victory over Wigan Warriors.

Adam Milner managed to get himself on the scoresheet for the Tigers while Liam Watts put in a tremendous display racking up more metres than any other player on the field with 150. Jake Trueman also played a full 80 minutes for Castleford.


Each of the three England players selected for Wigan - George Williams, Oliver Gildart and Joe Greenwood - managed to cross for tries. Gildart was voted as the Our League Man of the Match after scoring two tries and notching two try-assists. Williams and Greenwood both scored in defeat, but the latter did leave the field early due to injury.

Sam Tomkins inspired his Catalans Dragons side to inflict St Helens' first defeat of the 2019 Betfred Super League season on Saturday evening. Tomkins earned a try and assist on the way to being voted as the Our League Man of the Match.

Tommy Makinson scored for St Helens and ran for a massive 140 metres while fellow England international Alex Walmsley wasn't far behind, totalling 136.

These efforts, alongside solid performances from Mark Percival, Luke Thompson and James Roby weren't enough to overcome the French side, however. Roby remains top of the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel charts, but is now sharing the spot with Warrington halfback Blake Austin.


There was a tight affair between Yorkshire rivals Wakefield Trinity and Huddersfield Giants on Friday night with England backs Reece Lyne and Jermaine McGillvary powering over for their respective sides, McGillvary scoring his 200th-career try. Trinity edged out Huddersfield 17-16.

Scott Taylor was the only England player in action at the AJ Bell Stadium as Hull FC got back to winning ways at Salford. It was a dominant forward display from Taylor who amounted 70 metres from six carries, averaging 12 metres per carry in Hull's 23-16 success.

Robbie Mulhern - a new name in the England squad for 2019 - started in Hull Kingston Rovers' massive 45-26 victory over Leeds Rhinos. Kallum Watkins featured for the Rhinos albeit in defeat.
