Sports Mole rounds up the action from Sunday afternoon's games in the Super League.

The top three sides in the Super League table all secured wins in their matches this afternoon.

Bradford Bulls suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Wigan Warriors, losing 36-6 at the Odsal Stadium.

A Liam Farrell hat-trick in the first half helped the visitors race to a 30-0 lead, as Bradford struggled to cope with their pace.

Sam Tomkins added a sixth try for Wigan at the start of the second half, before Jarrod Sammut added a consolation for the home side in a more evenly matched second 40 minutes.

Huddersfield Giants came out on top in a highscoring encounter with Hull Kingston Rovers at the John Smith's Stadium.

Early tries from Craig Kopczak, Michael Lawrence and Shaun Lunt helped the home side to a 20-0 lead, before a Greg Eden brace and a Josh Hodgson try brought the Robins back into the match.

However, the Giants continued to add tries throughout the second half, with Joe Wardle taking two, to beat their opponents 50-30.

Warrington Wolves survived a Wakefield Trinity Wildcats comeback to record a victory this afternoon.

Having slipped to a 24-6 deficit early on, the home side found themselves just two points behind Warrington in the opening minutes of the second half, thanks to tries from Paul Sykes, Peter Fox and Reece Lyne.

Joel Monaghan, Stefan Ratchford and Richie Myler restored the visitors' lead, putting them 40-22 up with just over 10 minutes left to play.

Wakefield fought back again, but Wolves held on to register a 41-34 win.
