RugbyL: Smith stays calm as Warrington see off Hull

Warrington coach Tony Smith insisted he felt no nerves whatsoever as his side withstood a Hull FC fightback to claim their first points of the Super League season with an 18-16 win on Sunday. After two defeats to open up their campaign, the Wire were pushed to the limit by their visitors to the Halliwell Jones stadium despite having raced into an 18-6 half-time lead. Stefan Ratchford, former Australia international Trent Waterhouse and Ben Evans all crossed for first-half scores for the hosts, who lost to St Helens and Leeds Rhinos in rounds one and two.

RugbyL: Laffranchi has faith in Saints

The 2014 Super League season might be only two rounds old but already Anthony Laffranchi has seen enough to convince him that St Helens can go all the way this year. The former Australian international joined the Saints in 2012 but has seen his side fail to make the Grand Final in his first two seasons at the club. That two-year run of play-off disappointment is a far cry from the six successive Old Trafford dates when Saints were perennial big game players between 2006-2011.

RugbyL: Bradford in crisis after points deduction

Bradford Bulls saw all their directors quit the cash-strapped club on Tuesday, just minutes after they were docked six Super League points for going into administration. With relegation re-introduced into the Super League this season, it left the Bulls, long one of the powerhouses of English rugby league, on course to drop out of the top flight and facing a renewed battle merely to stay afloat.

RugbyL: Castleford make it two from two with Catalan win

Castleford's Justin Carney helped himself to a hat-trick in a 32-6 win over Catalan Dragons on Sunday as the Tigers made it two wins from as many games to open up their Super League campaign. The former Sydney Rooster got the ball rolling for the home side with the first score after eight minutes and grabbed his second just before half-time. Teammate Kirk Dixon was Castleford's other first-half scorer.
