Live: Leeds Rhinos 24 Saints 22

Last updated:

    SAINTS were edged out 24-22 at Headingley and that means their hopes of making the top four hang by a thread now.
  • The game was there for the taking, but they were hit by not finishing off their half breaks and were done for by the sin-binning of Jon Wilkin in the second half.
  • They had already lost half Matty Smith with a cut eye, which meant Thei Fages had to step up to the plate.
  • Adam Swift had opened the scoring, but Joel Moon replied to leave them trailing 6-4 at the break.
  • Leeds were first out of the blocks when Stevie Ward scored.
  • Saints replied with two tries when Makinson and James Roby crossed.
  • Saints led 16-12 when Wilkin was sin-binned.
  • Kalum Watkins and Ryan Hall crossed to make it 24-16.
  • But Saints were not giving up and Alex Walmsley crossed two minutes from time.
  • But there was to be no Houdini this week - and they went down to a defeat that will really hurt them.
