Huddersfield maintained their perfect start to the new Super League season with a 22-4 win at Hull KR.

Louis Senior, Lee Gaskell, Paul Clouth and Suaia Matagi all crossed the whitewash as the Giants made it three wins from three.

The only downside for Huddersfield was an injury to James Gavet, who was carried off on a stretcher early in the second half.

Hull KR’s only reply came via winger Ben Crooks.

Dom Manfredi scored on his long-awaited return from injury as Wigan Warriors beat Hull FC 26-12 on Sunday.

Bevan French, Jackson Hastings and Willie Isa also scored tries for the Warriors while Zak Hardaker kicked five goals, with Hull’s tries coming from Adam Swift and Josh Griffin.

Toronto is still awaiting their first Betfred Super League victory after falling to a 32-22 defeat in a hard-fought clash at Warrington on Friday.

The Wolfpack had marquee signing Sonny Bill Williams back in the starting line-up after the birth of his fourth child last week but remain winless after four rounds.

The hosts eased into a 16-0 lead after 30 minutes when Josh Charnley, Gareth Widdop and Tom Lineham all crossed but the Canadian outfit hit back with two first-half tries.

Jon Wilkin, in his 19th season of an illustrious career, and Andy Ackers crossed either side of a Matty Ashton score for Warrington to leave Toronto trailing by 10 at the break.

Toronto winger Matty Russell started the second-half scoring to cut the lead to 22-16 and the visitors were level with 24 minutes remaining when Gareth O’Brien strolled under the posts.

However, two Stefan Ratchford penalties and a late Ben Murdoch-Masila try proved enough for Warrington.

Long-serving forward Oliver Holmes marked his 200th appearance for Castleford with the clinching try as the Tigers cruised to a 14th successive derby win over Wakefield.

Trinity was poised to end their five-year losing streak when they led 15-14 at half-time but paid a high price for the sin-binning of substitute James Batchelor as they conceded two tries while down to 12 men.

Wingers Derrell Olpherts, a one-time Wakefield fan, and James Clare scored two tries apiece as the Tigers kept their own line intact in the second half to run out 32-15 winners.

St Helens’ game against Catalans Dragons was postponed on Friday due to the former’s involvement in the World Club Challenge.

On Saturday, Leeds picked up their second win of the season after coming from behind to battle past last year’s beaten Grand Finalists Salford and win 22-8 at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Tries either side of half-time from Luke Gale and Luke Briscoe swung the game in favour of Richard Agar’s men after Salford had dominated the first half but only registered two unconverted tries in difficult conditions.
