In weeks to come we may look back on Round Nineteen of the Kingstone Press Championship as a decisive one in determining the top four spots, and the coveted places in the middle eights.

Sheffield and Featherstone met on Friday night while the remainder of games were held on Sunday afternoon. The games of the day looked like they would be third placed Bradford against fourth placed Halifax, league leaders Leigh away to London, and Dewsbury at Batley.

Elsewhere, Oldham took on Whitehaven, and Workington hosted Swinton.

A semi-final place, joining Wakefield and Warrington in the draw, was on offer as league leaders Hull FC welcomed fourth placed Catalans Dragons.

Both sides made a number of changes, welcoming back players from injury and in the case of Ben Garcia for the Dragons, after a spell away from the club.

It looked like the tie of the round and neither side would take a backward step.

The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup signified the suspension of Super League, but still pitted teams from the top flight in some interesting looking fixtures. The first of these was a Thursday night, all-Yorkshire, fixture between Huddersfield and Wakefield.

Just a fortnight ago these two sides met at the John Smith's where Wakefield did the double with a 10-2 win thanks to a solitary Danny Kirmond try after also being the victors back in March, then by a more convincing 36-22.

With league position counting for little, eleventh placed Giants had home advantage over sixth placed Wakefield, but could they upset league form and avenge the league double?

All six games in round 18 of the Kingstone Press Championship took place on Sunday afternoon with the game of the round looking like the third placed tussle between Bradford Bulls and Batley Bulldogs.

Elsewhere table toppers Leigh Centurions were at home to Workington, second placed London Broncos had a home game against Oldham. The sides chasing that all-important fourth spot included Halifax who had a short trip to Dewsbury and Featherstone who played hosts to Whitehaven.

The final game was essentially a dead-rubber between Swinton and the Sheffield Eagles.

The tie of round nineteen saw the visit of third placed Catalans Dragons to the Halliwell-Jones to take on fourth placed Warrington Wolves. A home win would see the Wolves up to a third, but if the Dragons could get the two points then they'd be top of the pile, ahead of Hulls game on Sunday.

Warrington were looking for the double after a 30-20 win in Perpignan earlier in the year and with the Dragons missing a few first teamers, the bookies had the Wolves as the favourites.

Wigan Warriors had a score to settle as they travelled to Widnes to take on the Vikings after losing their home fixture 18-12 back in March. A win for Widnes would be their first double over Wigan for twenty-seven years.

A win for Widnes would see them into fifth spot in the Super League table ahead of St Helens but Wigan needed the win to go back level on points with Hull FC at the top of the pile.

Wigan were without George Williams, John Bateman and Sam Tomkins, the first injured, the second suspended, and the latter rested.

It was fourth against fifth as Saints travelled to the south of France to take on the Catalans Dragons. The home side needed a win to take second place, two points behind league lading Hull FC but a loss for Saints would see them losing touch with the battle for a top four finish.

Pat Richards was back for the home side after missing last weeks win at Leeds Rhinos, and Nathan Percival returned for Saints after their mauling by Warrington last weekend.

Super League games don't get any bigger than this.

Second placed Warrington Wolves welcomed league leading Hull FC to the Halliwell-Jones for a battle royal and an important indicator in the battle for the minor premiership. A win for FC would see them open up a four point gap at the top, but a sixteen point win for the Wolves would see them up into top spot.

Both sides had close to full strength squads, and both went into the game optimistic about picking up the crucial two points.

Both of tonight's teams, the Castleford Tigers and Widnes Vikings, came into this round eighteen game looking for a win to improve their position in Super League by a single place. For Castleford the two points would see them above Saints into fifth, and for the visitors it would be a move to seventh and a step closer to the Super Eights.

Widnes have won just two in their last eight outings in all competitions (and just one in ten in Super League), whereas the Tigers have won four of their last eight games.

Round 16 of the Championship saw table topping Leigh Centurions visit Whitehaven for a Saturday kick-off while the rest of the games kicked off in their usual Sunday afternoon spot.

Second placed London Broncos entertained Workington, third placed Batley Bulldogs were at home to the Oldham Roughyeds and fourth placed Bradford Bulls were at home to Dewsbury Rams. In the chasing pack, Featherstone were at home to Swinton Lions and Halifax at home to Sheffield Eagles, both hoping that the sides above them would slip up.

Warrington Wolves visited their bogey side St Helens needing a win, and hoping that Hull FC would slip up at home to Widnes Vikings, to enable them to return to the top of the table.

Despite losing the majority of games against Saints, Langtree Park is a happier hunting ground where the Wolves have picked up a number of wins including the last match between the two teams in Super League. Saints needed a win to keep in touch with the top four, a loss could see them six points off the pace at the end of the evening.

Both sites were without a handful of stars, but there was the expectation of a close game.

Sixth placed Wakefield Trinity Wildcats welcomed tenth placed Hull KR to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium as they continued their quest for a top eight spot at the split, a quest at which they are looking ever more likely to succeed.

When these two met earlier in the season in Hull it was the Wildcats who won the game by a two point margin, and there was everything to suggest that tonight's game could be as close.

What no one was prepared for was a one-sided game with seventy points.

ANZ Stadium, Homebush Bay, Sydney.

As is usual with State of Origin matches, the fanfare and exhuberance on show for the build up is nerve jangling, not only for the players but the masses congregated at what is the new south welshman’s home of Rugby League at the ANZ stadium in Sydney Australia for it’s 24th hosting of the event.

Advance Australia fair rings out, the teams lined up, the gladiators tuned and ready to go, the last few words they have for each other have been said, mate against mate, state against state.

IT’S ON………The rest of this story contains spoilers.
