Ben Flower made his comeback from injury from the interchange bench in Wigan Warriors' 26-8 victory over Castleford Tigers.

Current Wales captain Elliot Kear, Rhys Williams and Matty Fozard all featured for London Broncos as a 19-10 defeat at Wakefield Trinity meant they were relegated from Super League. Former Wales skipper Craig Kopczak, who has now retired from international rugby league, started for Wakefield.
