Saints back on top

MANCHESTER, England - Sia Soliola's try proved the catalyst for St Helens' remarkable 24-16 comeback victory against Wakefield which saw the Saints move back to the top of Super League on Sunday.

Josh Jones opened the scoring for the visitors in the 25th minute but three quick tries either side of half-time from Danny Kirmond, Reece Lyne and Paul McShane saw the Wildcats take charge at 16-4.

However, ex-Sydney Roosters utility Soliola crossed in the 49th minute and the Saints, who saw Leeds leapfrog them in the table on Friday, never looked back.

Matty Dawson, Joe Greenwood and Tom Makinson completed the recovery and made it six league wins from six for St Helens this season.

While the Saints maintained their unbeaten start, the same could not be said for Castleford who fell to their first defeat of the 2014 season at Salford.

Tries from Martin Gleeson, Greg Johnson and a double from Andrew Dixon gave Salford a relatively comfortable 23-16 victory at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Elsewhere on Sunday, former New Zealand Warriors winger Patrick Ah Van scored six of Widnes' points in their hard-fought 7-0 win over Hull FC.
