Third-placed St Helens kept their hopes of finishing top of Group One of the Betfred Women's Super League alive with a convincing 30-22 win at Leeds.

The Rhinos struck early with a Tasha Gaines try but Saints hit back to build a commanding lead with touchdowns from Rachael Woosey, Amy Hardcastle and Leah Burke.

Adaoha Akwiwu pulled one back for the Rhinos to make it 16-10 at the break but Saints made the game safe as Paige Travis and Emily Rudge went over.

Hanna Butcher and Courtney Winfield-Hill claimed late consolations for Leeds, who along with leaders York now have just a two-point advantage over Saints.

Wigan ran in seven tries as they overcame Huddersfield 42-4 in the other match in the group at Robin Park Arena.

Laureane Biville, Carys Marsh and Becky Greenfield helped the Warriors into a 16-0 half-time lead before Anna Davies, Georgia Wilson, Mary Coleman and Holly Speakman added to the scoreline in the second period.

Group Two leaders Warrington and Barrow opened up a six-point gap at the top with comfortable wins over Featherstone and Castleford respectively.

The Wolves, who occupy top spot on points difference and have a game in hand, produced a strong second-half showing to win 44-6 at Victoria Park.

Warrington led just 12-6 at the interval but Charlize Magraw turned the game firmly in their favour with a crucial try soon after the restart.

Barrow, meanwhile, were emphatic 78-0 winners at Castleford while Bradford beat Wakefield 26-0.
