Hull FC 20 Tries: Horne, Tickle, Whiting Goals: Tickle 4
Bradford Bulls 10 Tries: Tupou, Solomona Goals: Harris
Hull FC secured fourth spot and a home tie in the first round of the play-offs with a hard-fought win over Bradford Bulls at the KC Stadium.
In a very tight first half the teams went into the break all square at 4-4 with Tame Tupou scoring the only try for Bradford and Danny Tickle kicking two goals for Hull.
After the restart, Graeme Horne ran 60 metres to score for the Black and Whites after stripping James Evans of the ball.
David Solomona's try put the Bulls back in it before Tickle went over for the home side, and Richard Whiting's late try wrapped up the win.
Leeds Rhinos 46 Tries: McGuire 2, Burrow 2, Sinfield, Toopi, Webb, Smith Goals: Sinfield 7
Wakefield Wildcats 4 Tries: Jeffries Goals:
Leeds Rhinos ran in eight and put Wakefield Wildcats to the sword at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.
The hosts lead 18-0 at the break with tries from Kevin Sinfield- who became the first Leeds player to score in every game- and a brace for Danny McGuire.
Brent Webb, Clinton Toopi and a double for Rob Burrow gave Leeds a 38-0 lead. Ben Jeffries scored a consolation for the Wildcats then he got sin-binned for interference.
Lee Smith finished off the scoring as Leeds secured second spot and a trip to St Helens for a place in the Grand Final.
Salford City Reds 26 Tries: Barnett 2, Turner, McGuinness 2 Goals: Wilshere 3
Warrington Wolves 34 Tries: Fa'afili, Bridge, Westwood 2, Mitchell, Rauhihi Goals: Briers 5
Warrington Wolves missed out on the play-offs despite a win over relegated Salford City Reds at the Willows.
Tries by Henry Fa'afili, Chris Bridge, Ben Westwood and debutant Lee Mitchell put the Wolves 20-16 up at the break.
Westwood again and Paul Rauhihi added to that lead before two tries by Kevin McGuiness in the last three minutes ensured the Reds went down fighting. But Wigan's win over St Helens meant Warrington's victory was in vain.
Wigan Warriors 20 Tries: Vaealiki, Leuluai, Colbon Goals: Richards 4
St Helens 12 Tries: Talau, Gardner Goals: Wellens 2
Wigan Warriors claimed sixth spot with a thrilling win over bitter rivals St Helens at a packed JJB Stadium.
David Vaealiki got Wigan off to the perfect start. Willie Talau and Ade Gardner gave Saints a 10-6 lead at the interval.
Thomas Leuluai's try after the break put the Warriors back in front before Paul Wellens' penalty put Saints level.
But Liam Colbon touched down from Vaealiki's pass to seal a famous win and an away tie at Bradford in the 1st round of the play-offs next Friday night.

Hull KR 25 Tries: Fisher 2, Vella, Chester Goals: Cooke 4 Drop Goal: Cooke
Huddersfield Gants 24 Tries: Reilly 2, Nero, Jensen 2 Goals: Thorman 2
Hull KR ended their first season in the engage Super League on a high with a narrow win over Huddersfield Giants at Craven Park.
A quickfire second-half double from Rod Jensen looked to have won it for Giants, who secured their play-off place last week.
But Ben Fisher replied for the hosts
