Tom Davies (Catalans Dragons)

Tom Davies was one of a number of Dragons players who stood out in their 0-58 demolition of Wakefield Trinity on Saturday afternoon as he crossed for a hat-trick.

Davies try began with a clever offload from acting half-back Michael McIlorum who found an onrushing Sam Tomkins. The full-back sliced through Trinity’s defensive line before the ball eventually found fellow former Wigan man Davies who scored in the corner.

Gareth Widdop (Warrington Wolves) 

For the second consecutive week, Warrington Wolves half-back Gareth Widdop has a contender in the Our League Try of the Week.

A move to the left-hand side went out to Toby King who managed to slip through the Huddersfield defence and find a supporting Gareth Widdop on the inside. Widdop went one-on-one with Darnell McIntosh and a beautifully executed sidestep left the Giants full-back clutching at thin air.

Tom Lineham (Warrington Wolves) 

Warrington’s second contender in this week’s Our League Try of the Week comes from Tom Lineham.

Another well-worked Wolves move to the left-hand edge caused issues for Huddersfield with Widdop putting King into space. King looked to have been stopped but managed to get a hand free to offload to Lineham who hit the ball at pace and the winger raced the final 30 metres.

Theo Fages (St Helens)

St Helens’ 10-0 victory over Castleford Tigers on Sunday afternoon looked destined to be a try-less game until a big of magic from Alex Walmsley and Lachlan Coote.

The towering England forward managed to offload to full-back Coote whose pace took him away from the chasing Castleford defenders. Coote tipped the ball inside to Frenchman Fages who managed to fend off the best efforts of three Tigers defenders to score under the posts.

Bevan French (Wigan Warriors)

Bevan French’s first try in Wigan Warriors’ 28-10 win over Leeds Rhinos this weekend had a bit of everything.

Liam Farrell – on the right-hand edge – offloaded the ball to French who in turn launched it left for Jackson Hastings who then put Liam Marshall free down the flank.

Marshall – whose football skills have been on display previously in the Our League Try of the Week – kicked the ball forward, Hastings then knocked it on again with his right boot for French to finish the move. 

Dom Manfredi (Wigan Warriors)

Wigan’s second contender in this week’s Our League Try of the Week didn’t need any soccer skills as the ball-handling was near-perfect.

Hastings jumped from acting half-back and gave the ball to French who tipped on quickly before Willie Isa caught the ball at his feet and flicked on with a sublime piece of skill. The ball eventually went wide to Dom Manfredi who went over unchallenged.
