Tom Davies has lit the Betfred Super League alight in 2020 since making the move to Perpignan and joining up with Catalans Dragons and he was on the scoresheet once again this past week.
It was fellow former Wigan man Sam Tomkins who made the initial break from inside his own 20 metre line at the Halliwell Jones Stadium before the England fullback found a supporting Davies – who altered his run at the last-minute – to finish in the corner.
Leeds’ season came to an end this past week as they fell to defeat against Catalans Dragons, but it didn’t stop them providing two contenders for the Our League Try of the Week.
Alex Sutcliffe finished a flowing Rhinos move which began with Luke Gale and Richie Myler linking up well before Liam Sutcliffe found a supporting Gale with a neat offload and the England halfback in turn found Liam’s namesake Alex who finished well.
Liam Sutcliffe was heavily involed in Leeds’ second submission for the Our League Try of the Week which was finished by Tongan powerhouse Konrad Hurrell.
Sutcliffe made a half-break before cutting inside and offloading on to Gale. The ball was then thrown to the right-hand side with NRL-winning prop-forward Matt Prior launching a looping pass to Hurrell who scored in the corner.
Hull FC moved into the final four of the Betfred Super League with an eye-catching victory over Warrington Wolves on Friday evening.
Faraimo opened the scoring for the Black and Whites as it looks as though Andy Last’s men would pass the ball right before quickly coming back to the left-hand flank allowing Josh Griffin to set-up the USA international.
It has been a terrific debut season in the Betfred Super League for Warrington flyer Matty Ashton who has scored a number of breath-taking tries and it’s only fitting that he gives us another Our League Try of the Week contender in his final appearance of the season.
Quick hands to the left-hand side found Ashton on the wing who did well to avoid an onrushing Ratu Naulago to plant the ball down in the corner.
It wasn’t to be for Warrington against Hull FC despite the Wolves’ best efforts which included an impressive try from centre Anthony Gelling.
Gareth Widdop put up a cross-field kick which Gelling plucked out of the air from under the nose of Carlos Tuimavave before the Cook Islander fending off three defenders to crash over the line.
