St Helens (26) 38
Tries: Coote, Lomax 2, Makinson 3, Fages Goals: Coote 5
Huddersfield (2) 2
Goal: Russell

Tommy Makinson scored a hat-trick on his 200th Super League appearance as leaders St Helens returned to winning ways by beating lowly Huddersfield. Saints moved clear in the first half, running in five tries after conceding their only points in the third minute.

Makinson and Jonny Lomax, who went over twice, were recalled after Saints' surprise defeat at London Broncos.

Lachlan Coote and Theo Fages also scored for St Helens, who took their foot off the gas in the closing stages.

Justin Holbrook's side moved six points clear at the top - ahead of second-placed Warrington's trip to Hull KR on Saturday - while Huddersfield now stand ninth in the table.

St Helens (12) 32
Tries: Makinson 2, Coote, Naiqama, Lomax Goals: Coote 6
Wigan (4) 10
Tries: Hardaker Goals: Hardaker 3

Super League leaders St Helens easily pulled off their third derby win of the season to beat in-form Wigan Warriors and move 10 points clear at the top.

Tommy Makinson sent Saints ahead after Zak Hardaker and Lachlan Coote exchanged penalty goals early on before he crossed again just before half-time. Coote, Kevin Naiqama and Jonny Lomax all crossed over after the break to give Saints a formidable lead.

Hardaker later ran in for Wigan but a Saints victory never looked in doubt.

The result is the third St Helens derby victory against Wigan this season after Justin Holbrook's side defeated the Cherry and Whites in the opening game of the season as well as a Good Friday rout at the DW Stadium.

Easy for Saints: we have no pack, just kids, And Saints have the best pack in the comp, and their backs make the most of it.
