Find out how Super League’s former NRL stars fared in week seven of the Betfred Super League.

Two of the competition’s leading clubs saw their woes continue, while St Helens and Wigan continued to set the pace at the top of the table.

Round 7 kicked off on Thursday night with a thrilling encounter at the DW Stadium, in which Wigan Warriors grabbed the two points with a 19-18 victory over Hull FC.

Ex-Eel, Jai Field continued his fantastic start to the season with another pair of tries for Wigan, while former Rabbitoh, Joe Lovodua, grabbed two superb try assists for Hull.

On Friday night, the Leeds Rhinos’ dreadful form continued as they were soundly beaten 26-0 by St Helens. Tongan centre, Konrad Hurrell was among the try-scorers for the Saints, who condemned the Rhinos to a fifth straight home defeat this year – the worst start to a season in the club’s history.

That wasn’t the only piece of history being made, as Saints hooker James Roby made his 500th appearance for the club.

Friday night’s other big talking point came in Hull, where Warrington Wolves suffered a fifth straight defeat at the hands of Hull KR. Premiership-winning Cowboy Lachlan Coote scored a try and three goals for Hull’s convincing 34-18 win. Samoan international, Peter Mata’utia scored a late consolation try for Warrington.
