- Catalans Dragons 10-20 Leeds
- Liam Sutcliffe runs in hat-trick for Rhinos
Having unexpectedly being thrust into the British sporting limelight on Friday evening, Leeds Rhinos did not disappoint. Two months ago they looked anything but a side capable of making the playoffs, let alone an 11th Super League Grand Final.
But, if history has taught us anything, it is that one writes this club off at one’s peril. Leeds are no strangers to winning Super League from as low as fifth, having done it twice already. But this, even by their standards, is some story they are writing. When Rohan Smith arrived at Headingley in May the Rhinos were genuine relegation contenders. Fast forward to the present day, with 12 wins in 17 games since, and Leeds, remarkably, are 80 minutes from the Grand Final in a fortnight’s time.
