The Warrington Wolves made it two from two to start the season, powering past Hull KR 28-14, with one-time Kiwi international Bryson Goodwin among the best on field.
Goodwin finished the match with a game-high four offloads, to go with his 95 run metres, while off the bench fellow Kiwis Lama Tasi and Ben Murdoch-Masila saw game time.
Bay Roskill junior Bill Tupou got over for a try against St Helens, with his side leaking a late try to lose 24-18, while in Wigan Thomas Leuluai laid on a try to help his Warriors down Tuimoala Lolohea and the Leeds Rhinos 34-16.
Jesse Sene-Lefao (pictured) scored a try, and Junior Moors and Ben Roberts both saw game time for Castleford off the bench, as the Tigers got past the struggling Hull FC, who had Bureta Faraimo, Sika Manu and Carlos Tuimavave take the field.
In the Championship, Anthony Gelling was in outstanding touch for Widnes, as they headed to the south of France and came away with the points over Toulouse.

Gelling crossed for two tries in the win, and literally had the fans singing his praises post-match.
Former Kiwi Chase Stanley’s Toronto outfit were 52 point winners over Rochdale, with the experienced centre getting on the scoresheet in the win, while Jake Webster’s new side, the Bradford Bulls, made light work of Sheffield.
