Sports Mole rounds up all the action from Sunday afternoon's Super League matches.

Wigan Warriors have moved back to the top of the Super League table with victory over Wakefield Trinity Wildcats this afternoon.

The visitors edged ahead in a closely-matched opening 20 minutes following tries from Vince Mellars and Richard Mathers, but the Warriors proved too strong, racing to a 30-12 advantage at half time.

Wakefield were reduced to 12 men early in the first half, after the referee ruled that Justin Poore had punched an opponent.

Sam Tomkins completed his hat-trick in the second half, as Wigan put nine tries past Wildcats.

Hull Kingston Rovers stunned St Helens, beating them 22-14 at New Craven Park.

David Hodgson and Josh Hodgson put the hosts 10-0 up early on, before a Mark Percival brace leveled the scores.

Further tries from Cory Patterson and Alex Brown helped KR edge ahead in the second half and secure the win.

Hat-tricks from Rhys Hanbury and Cameron Phelps helped Widnes Vikings to a comfortable win over Salford City Reds.

The home side scored five tries in the opening period to take a 28-12 lead at the break.

A similar effort in the second half, including tries from Joe Mellor and Kevin Brown, saw the Vikings finish the match 58-24.

A solid second-half performance from Hull ensured that they eased past Catalan Dragons at the KC Stadium.

A quiet first half saw the two teams go level at 4-4 at the break, but a second-half brace from Tom Lineham helped the hosts open up a lead to eventually take the win.
