All of the weekends rugby league was overshadowed by the tragic events unfolding in London and the later shocking and distressing confirmation of the death of Keighley Cougars Danny Jones from a suspected cardiac arrest. The thoughts of all of us are with Danny's wife and family, his friends and all of those involved with the Cougars.

Six games took place in the Kingstone Press Championship with intriguing looking ties at Bradford, where the Sheffield Eagles were the visitors, and Dewsbury who welcomed the Centurions.

Elsewhere Whitehaven were at Batley, Workington at Featherstone, London Broncos travelled to Hunslet, and Doncaster looked for their first win of the season at Halifax.

We are shocked and saddened to hear of the injury and apparent subsequent cardiac arrest suffered by Keighley Cougars Welsh International Danny Jones during the early stages of today's game at London Skolars.

We are sure that the whole of RLFANS.COM and the entire rugby league community will be thinking of Danny, his family, and his friends at this time.

We understand that Danny was treated quickly and taken to a nearby hospital. The game was abandoned when the seriousness of the injury became apparent.

All the pre match talk was of the Robins ever-extending absentee list which saw Campese, Lunt, Mantellato and Larroyer all missing from the visitors squad. But the hosts Wigan had plenty of injury problems themselves and we're still without the services of the likes of O'Loughlin, Mossop, Gelling and Charnley.

A win for the home side would keep them third and take them four points clear of fourth placed Huddersfield Giants who dropped a point against the Rhinos at the John Smith's Stadium last night.

A win for Hull KR would see them back in the all-important top eight.

The world's most famous seaside resort will rock to the planet's most exciting sport this summer when Bloomfield Road hosts a full round of Kingstone Press Championship fixtures over two action-packed days on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May.

As well as seven matches across the weekend, the Summer Bash will bring the same party atmosphere to Blackpool that Super League fans have enjoyed at Magic Weekend over the last few years with a Fanzone and on-pitch entertainment.

The Rhinos had a bike to get back on after last weeks thrashing by the Warrington Wolves, and that bike was located at a resurgent Huddersfield Giants, the graveyard of recent Rhinos aspirations.

Brian McDermott sprung a surprise and dropped skipper Sinfield after his 500th club appearance last week, but welcomed back Jones-Buchanan after a long injury lay-off.

It was first against fourth, and the best attack against the best defence. It was always going to be the fixture of the round and we weren't disappointed.

The disciplinary panel considered twenty-one incidents from the weekends Round Twelve Super League matches. Video evidence was viewed from five of the six games with just the Saints v. Widnes game being given the 'all clear'.

Salford will be breathing a sigh of relief as they escaped any further charges to add to their suspension and injury worries, and only two players were effected by the three charges which the committee have deemed require further action.

They will visit Wigan, St. Helens, Widnes, Warrington and Salford stadiums in the bike ride. All donations welcome.

It was a case of 'anything you can do, we can do better' as the top two sides in the Kingstone Press Championship matched one another point for point in their respective games.

Round Ten gave the top two sides simple looking fixtures as Leigh Centurions hosted the Batley Bulldogs, and Bradford Bulls made the trip to the Keepmoat for the early fixture against Doncaster.

The game of the round saw third take on fourth as Sheffield and Halifax met in the late kick-off, with the prospect of a home win opening the door for Dewsbury, London and Featherstone to finish the weekend in fourth spot.

The Catalans Dragons were looking for a victory to lift them above their visitors, Hull KR and to catapult them back into the all important top eight. It was a game with the promise of plenty of points as these two have form for scoring and conceding plenty of points against one another.

The home side were without the likes of Dureau, Anderson and Tonga but the Robins had their own injury problems and gave Australian Dane Tilse his debut.

Richard Silverwood was in the middle, and while we started the game in the dry there was the threat of heavy rain as we moved into early evening.

The Rhinos have only lost one game in 2015, the March trip to the Halliwell-Jones to take on tonight's visitors, the Warrington Wolves. Leeds, five points clear of the field after last nights Wigan victory, were firm favourites against a Wolves side who had only managed one win in their last five, since beating the Rhinos on home soil.

But tonight was about more than just the points, it was about Rhinos skipper Kevin Sinfields 500th Leeds performance, only the fourth player in Leeds long history to reach the milestone. Surely the Wolves couldn't upset the odds and spoil the party, as over seventeen thousand descended on Headingley.

Wigan were eyeing second spot, while their supporters who made the trip over the Pennines for tonight's match, were wondering whether their side could emulate the Wolves and inflict another massacre on Super Leagues' cut adrift bottom side.

Few gave the Wildcats any hope, and many tuning in on SKY will have been hoping for, rather than expecting, a decent game.

So the Wildcats had nothing to lose as cast iron underdogs against a Wigan side who are starting to look like serious contenders for the top super eights battle to come.

Thirty-three incidents involving players from Super League teams were investigated by the RFL disciplinary after last weekends Challenge Cup and round Eleven fixtures.

After consideration of the video evidence there were six charges brought, and one caution issued, to Ashley Gibson of Castleford Tigers for use of the knees in the fifty-ninth minute of their game against Widnes.

Of the charges brought, three were resolved through early guilty pleas (EGP's) and three resulted in a trip to appear before the panel.

There were several sharp intakes of breath when the draw for the fifth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup was made, none more pronounced than when Championship trail-blazers Leigh Centurions were drawn at home against Salford Red Devils.

Over six thousand were at the Leigh Sports Village for the tie of the round, with the Red Devils being the bookies favourites to uphold the honour of Super League and inflict the Centurions first home defeat in eighteen months.

Paul Rowley, his side, and his supporters have an expectation of being in Super League next season and this was their chance to benchmark themselves against the fourth placed side in the flagship competition.

The game of Round eleven saw first travel to second as the Rhinos made the trip to Langtree Park, not their happiest of hunting grounds, to take on Kieron Cunningham's Saints.

The rest of the league was rooting for the Saints, to try and bring the Rhinos back to the pack, as a win tonight for the Blue and Amber would see them six points clear and with one hand on the league leaders shield.

Both sides were carrying large numbers of injured absentees but there was still plenty of potential for them to serve up a feast.

With four Super League clubs taken out of action by the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup, it is a case of quality rather than quantity this weekend.

The round opened with third against fifth as Wigan Warriors and the Warrington Wolves met to do battle at the DW Stadium, both keen to keep up the pressure on the clubs above them.

Both sides came into the game on the back of nilling their opponents last week, despite some below par performances in the preceding weeks.
