Fages: Salford youngster is one to watch, says Terry

Salford 34-30 Castleford

TERRY SAYS: Salford have not been that far off over recent weeks and got a win in Brian Noble's first game in charge on Saturday, but Brian knows they need to improve defensively because while they score points they leak them as well. However, they have got some very good and very exciting young players in Marc Sneyd and Theo Fages and you just want them start playing with a bit more confidence. Castleford, meanwhile, will be disappointed with the defeat as it was a topsy-turvy game that could have gone either way.

London Broncos 21-14 St Helens

TERRY SAYS: I'm sure London would have looked at St Helens and thought: 'There are 10 players here who don't normally play in the first team', but Saints are a side that can get at you from all over the park so the Broncos had to stand up - and the man that did that most of all was captain Craig Gower, who got tackled on 24 occasions. London shifted the ball well, too, and that's what Tony Rea will be asking from his players as the look to pick up some points.

Catalans 20-28 Huddersfield

TERRY SAYS: Huddersfield went down to 12 men after Luke Robinson was sent off and sometimes that is dangerous for the opposition because they think they have to throw the ball around and exploit the man advantage. Catalans did that and made far too many mistakes in the last 30 minutes - something you cannot do against players of the quality of Danny Brough - but in Morgan Escare they have one of the finds of the Super League season, and if they keep hold of the ball they will score tries.

Warrington 32-4 Bradford

TERRY SAYS: Warrington have not been in the best from of late, but they scored three tries in the final nine minutes of this game. It was typical of the way they have played for three or four years in that the players push up and support their team-mates and Simon Grix, a very underestimated player, scored their final try.

Hull KR 10-44 Leeds

TERRY SAYS: Leeds are an unbelievable side and one of the best in the competition at concentrating over 80 minutes. They start games well, finish them well and are outstanding in the middle; they never switch off and every player offers an attacking threat, as you saw in this match.

Widnes 26-28 Wakefield

TERRY SAYS: Widnes coach Denis Betts was frustrated about a few refereeing decisions that went Wakefield's way but the Vikings defended poorly, left gaps against quality players and were punished. Wakefield played very well and Paul Aiton and Tim Smith were exceptional.
