The Champions took their unbeaten record on the road to East Hull to try and secure their first away victory against Hull KR after seven successive defeats. The home side were looking to carry on where they had left off in defeating the Warriors and the Dragons, after losing the season opener to the Rhinos in a game they led on two occasions.

Few gave KR a chance against the league leaders, but from the outset the Robins players showed that they had the belief that they could get the two points and upset the bookies and the pundits.

Salford Red Devils and Widnes Vikings met at the City of Salford Stadium in tonights Thursday night fixture, with both eyeing fourth spot in Super League.

Camera shy Salford had not won in front of the SKY cameras for two years, however, the last side that they beat in a televised Super League game was today's opposition.

Salford Red Devils needed to show the rest of the competition that they mean business in 2015 but the bookies fancied the Vikings to collect the points.

Three intrepid Rugby League supporters are embarking on an epic journey to raise money for Rugby League Cares – the umbrella charity of Rugby League and raise awareness for our sport as a whole.

Dan and his two friends Beck and Mike have purchased an old 02 plate Renault Scenic and set off on their journey on Saturday 4th April to arrive in Perpignan for Monday 6th April in time for the Catalans Dragons v. Widnes Vikings Super League fixture.

They are hoping to receive donations along the way in the form of car merchandise to help make their old motor look like a Rugby League Fun Bus on the way into Perpignan and are also asking to have their car signed by every available first team player in Super League!

It's all change for the 2015 Challenge Cup with a new format that goes hand in hand with the new league structure.

The weekend saw twelve round four games, involving the amateur survivors from the earlier rounds, with the Championship sides thrown into the mix for the first time.

Tuesday night will see all eyes turn to the fifth round draw in Hull when the victors from round four will be joined by the Superleague sides which did not finish in the top eight last season; Salford Red Devils, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, and both Hull FC and Hull KR (three out of this seasons bottom four after round six).

When the teams were posted for tonight's match-up between the Rhinos and the Warriors, much of the chatter was about who was missing rather than who was playing. The home side were looking to get back to winning ways, after losing their unbeaten 2015 record last week at the Halliwell-Jones, but would have to do it without Tom Briscoe and the skipper Kevin Sinfield.

Wigan, still looking for some consistent Superleague XX form, would be without Josh Charnley, ruled out for up to six weeks due to injury.

The two points would get the Rhinos back to second spot but the Warriors were the more needy for the points as a loss would mean that they are in danger of slipping to eighth, should other results go against them over the weekend.

The Champions were looking to make it six from six at the start of a Superleague XX but were up against a side they'd not beaten at home in the last five attempts, and who had demolished the Rhinos unbeaten record last weekend.

Warrington were unchanged to celebrate Tony Smiths six year tenure and they arrived at Langtree Park in the knowledge that a win by thirty-four points or more would see them into top spot, above their hosts.

The stage was set for a classic.

It was another busy Monday for the RFL disciplinary panel as they considered sixteen incidents to determine whether there were charges to answer.

Five charges were brought; two from the Widnes v. Saints game, one from Hull FC v. Wigan and two from Hull KR v. Catalans. All five were found guilty, but just two will miss out on the coming weekends action after receiving suspensions.

It was a Sunday afternoon of high drama across the Kingstone Press Championship as Batley came within five minutes of upsetting the Bradford Bulls, Workington came close to defeating the Sheffield Eagles, and Whitehaven sprung a surprise on the visiting London Broncos to record their first two points of the season.

Elsewhere it was business as usual for the relentless Leigh Centurions, a good win for Halifax over the Dewsbury Rams and a fifth consecutive 2015 loss for Doncaster at the hands of Hunslet leaving them anchored to the bottom of the league.

The Rhinos travelled to the Halliwell-Jones looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season against the Warrington Wolves. The Wolves were keen to follow up on their win over Hull KR last weekend and to draw level on points with their visitors.

Warrington welcomed back Chris Bridge but were without. Joel Monaghan for the game of the weekend. The Rhinos also sprung a surprise withe the omission of Zak Hardaker for disciplinary reasons, opening the way for Ash Golding to take the full-back berth.

Leeds Rhinos 'bad boy' Zak Hardaker appears to be in trouble again, and is rumoured to have been dropped ahead of tonight's game at Warrington Wolves.

Leeds have confirmed that two of their players are 'helping police with their enquiries' following the alleged assault of a man at a student residence in Leeds last month. Non-club sources have named the players as star full-back Zak Hardaker and Elliot Minchella.

Both the Tigers and the Giants registered their first wins of Superleague XX in Round 4 last week. The Giants took the points off Widnes Vikings and Castleford got their points with a stunning win over the Warriors.

Despite both sides currently languishing within the bottom four, whoever took the points tonight would lift themselves up to fifth, snapping at the heels of a top four slot.

The tie of round four of the Kingstone Press Championship was at The Shay where two of the main contenders for the all-important top four, Halifax and Featherstone, had their first meeting of the season.

League leaders Leigh Centurions were in South Yorkshire to take on Doncaster in the early kick off and second placed Bradford Bulls were back at Odsal where Hunslet made the short thirteen mile trip.

Elsewhere, Dewsbury hosted Whitehaven, Workington were at London Broncos and Sheffield Eagles welcomed the Batley Bulldogs for the late kick-off.

Catalans Dragons came into today's game on the back of three consecutive home wins, against a Salford side who benefitted from the words of wisdom in mid-week of Tim Sheens. Salford themselves got their season up and running last weekend but were without a number of key players for the long trip to France.

Few could have predicted what would unfold over the next eighty minutes as the two sides would share eighty points in a game which would twist and turn right up until the final hooter. Some exciting attacking play thrilled the crowd but was offset with some awful defences from both sides.

Saints were looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season as they travelled the M62 to take on the Wakefield Wildcats, who themselves have had an impressive start to the season. History was on Saints side as they'd triumphed in nine of the last ten meetings between the sides.

Saints needed to win by fourteen or more to go back above the Rhinos into top spot, but a win for Wakefield would see them up to third in the Super League XX table, snapping at Saints heels.
