Week two of the Super 8s as expected delivered some interesting results, but in more ways than one over the top two divisions.
The Super 8s saw two clubs mathematically eliminated from challenging for Old Trafford whereas the Qualifiers saw some major shocks and blew the competition wide open.
Back with a bang
First of all, Hull FC returned to top form with a resounding 38-0 away win against injury hit Widnes Vikings.
Hull fell to a disappointing defeat last week against Castleford, but shrugged off any doubts of surrendering top spot and returned with a bang.
Fetuli Talanoa starred with a hat-trick of tries as well as further touchdowns from Jordan Abdull, Mahe Fonua, Steve Michaels and Dean Hadley.
The Airlie Birds remained on top after 25 matches, something they have never achieved before and perhaps some may talk that it is finally their year?
Widnes were decimated by injuries, a factor that led to believe the Sky commentary controversially stating the win by FC “wasn’t flash” though on the night, the handling by Widnes was rather poor.
Their season all but over, the Vikings should now use the remaining few weeks to try out any training moves and finish the season strongly, encouraging aspects to take into 2017.
