St Helens captain Paul Wellens and former England winger Ade Gardner scored two tries each to help Saints to a 42-12 win over Wakefield in the Jon Wilkin testimonial match at Langtree Park.

The Robins led 22-6 at half-time thanks to tries from Omari Caro, Craig Hall, Cory Paterson and Eden, with England winger Tom Briscoe responding for the home side.
Hull FC rallied in the second half, with newcomers Ben Galea, a former Rovers captain, and Jason Crookes scoring their first tries for the club but Eden grabbed his second 10 minutes from the end to seal their fate.
Hooker Shaun Lunt, one of the heroes of Leeds' Grand Final win in October, marked his return to Huddersfield with a hat-trick of tries as the Giants came from 12-0 down to beat Widnes 36-12 at the John Smith's Stadium.
Early tries from Joe Mellor and Danny Craven gave the Vikings the perfect start but Lunt pulled a try back before the break while England centre Leroy Cudjoe was twice among the scorers as the home side dominated the second half.
New signing Justin Carney scored two tries as Castleford came from 10-0 down to beat Championship side Featherstone 20-10.
