- St Helens 36-8 Leeds
- Percival and Grace doubles wrap up comfortable win for Saints
The three-peat versus the new kids on the block. Whatever happens next Saturday, history will be made at Old Trafford as two sides with records that could not be more contrasting compete to be crowned Super League champions. There are stories everywhere you look, but the one thing you suspect we are guaranteed is drama.
The fact both teams reached next weekend’s final in eerily similar fashion also suggests a close contest next weekend. Much like on Thursday, St Helens faced stern opposition here in terms of spirit and endeavour. But when the chips were down, the quality of the favourites was simply too much for Leeds Rhinos to handle.
