The best from the weekend's Super League action, including spectacular tries, upsets, mud baths and an astonishing drop-goal.
Try of the round
In testing conditions, Tommy Makinson's second try in Saints Helens 28-6 win over Widnes was a tremendous team effort. Typically, the diminutive and fleet-footed Ben Barba was involved as Saints switched back on their attack, before some slick hands and brilliant timing was crowned by Makinson, who dived to score in the corner with only millimetres to spare.
Marc Sneyd is enjoying a fine season for Hull FC and his growing confidence allowed him to pull off a mammoth drop-goal to steal a 27-26 victory from Wakefield. With just over 90 seconds remaining, Sneyd punted for glory from 52 astonishing metres, just inside his own half.
Hull FC coach Lee Radford reckoned from his vantage point as the ball cleared the bar with 10 metres to spare.
Game of the round
For sheer drama, a lead that see-sawed back and forth and that helping of Marc Sneyd magic, it's hard to look beyond Hull FC's one-point victory over Wakefield. But neither did the much-anticipated Good Friday collision between St Helens and Wigan disappoint.
Saints' legend and Australian coach Mal Meninga was in the stands to watch his former side break their Easter hoodoo over Wigan. There was just five minutes left on the clock when Wales winger Regan Grace snatched a 21-18 victory with a try-scoring tumble that keeps his side top of the table.
Memories made of mud
After 24 hours of non-stop rain, the conditions in which Warrington beat Castleford 18-6 in the Mend-a-Hose Jungle were reminiscent of the so-called 1968 'Watersplash' Challenge Cup final at Wembley. That contest celebrates its 50th anniversary next month, on what will probably be a bone-dry afternoon.

When faced with a puddle on the pitch in front of the fans, what else was Warrington's Josh Charnnley to do?
Roar of the Dragon
Coming at the end of a frantic weekend fixtures wise, and being played in the South of France, the match-up between Catalans Dragons and the Huddersfield Giants was almost the forgotten fixture. But the Dragons, and a corker of a try from David Mead, brought the curtain down on another memorable Easter schedule with a dramatic 27-6 upset in Perpignan.
Now can they build from the bottom?
