Kiwis abroad – August 25

Check out the latest news involving our Kiwis playing league outside of New Zealand and Australia, with our wrap of the action from around Europe.

In the Super League Super 8s , who are the teams vying for the first division title, former Kiwi international Jake Webster had a day out that he is unlikely to ever forget.

Webster, who was part of the 2005 Tri-Nations winning New Zealand team, romped to four tries to help Castleford to a 45-20 crushing of Wakefield.

The result gives the Tigers their first-ever League Leaders’ Shield as they continue their march towards a Grand Final berth.

Ben Roberts and Jesse Sene-Lefao both played for ‘Cas’ as well, while Bill Tupou and Tinirau Arona played for the Wildcats.

One-time New Zealand Warriors Ukuma Ta’ai and Sebastine Ikahihifo both started for Huddersfield as they downed Hull FC 46-18 and Frank-Paul Nuuausala scored for Wigan in a 42-6 romp of Salford.

In the Super 8s Qualifiers – that’s the group playing off for potential Super League promotion/relegation – former Junior Warrior Mark Ioane scored a try for London as they took Championship frontrunners Hull KR all the way in an eventual 35-30 loss.

Misi Taulapapa scored in Featherstone’s heavy defeat to Widnes, who had Napier-born Hep Cahill locking the scrum for them, while Peta Hiku scored and ran for 180 metres for Warrington in their 22-8 defeat of Halifax.

Down in the lower levels of the English game, Constantine Mika scored for Toulouse in a big win against Rochdale, while Quentin Laulu-Togaga’e (two tries) and Fuifui Moimoi got on the bored for Toronto Wolfpack against Newcastle Thunder.
