Catalans halfback Thomas Bosc has edged ahead of Wigan's Pat Richards as Super League leading point scorer following a 20-point haul against Warrington on Saturday night.

Bosc has been outstanding for the Frenchmen this season as they have stunned their critics to sit comfortably in 3rd position this season.

Pat Richards is in second position on 176 with a game in hand as Wigan haven't yet played their Round 16 clash against Huddersfield. Kevin Sinfield is 3rd on 164 points and Sean Long became the 4th player to pass the 150 point barrier this season with three goals against Leeds on Friday night.

Leeds might have lost against St Helens on Friday night, but it was Rhinos flyer Scott Donald and not Saints finisher Ade Gardner that crossed the line during the Saints 26-12 victory. The one try by Donald puts him one ahead of Donald in the two-horse race for leading try scorer. Clint Greenshields and Chris Hicks didn't cross the line in Round 18 leaving them in equal 3rd position on 12 tries each.

Bosc has moved ahead of Kevin Sinfield as the leading goal kicker landing eight successful shots against Warrington on Saturday night. Bosc is now on 79 goals and three clear of Sinfield. Richards is in 3rd position with 68 and Long two behind with 66 goals.

Hull FC stand-off Adam Dykes is the only player this season with two drop goals, although Castleford fans wish Brent Sherwin would also have two drop goals alongside his name after his late attempt on Sunday against Wigan was unsuccessful.
