  • TWO Zeb Taia tries early in the second half and a hat-trick from Kevin Naiqama set Saints on their way to victory over Leeds and ensure momentum continues going into next weekend’s Challenge Cup Final.
  • After turning around 10-10, Taia touched down after kicks to open up a 22-10 lead after 47 minutes.
  • A Mark Percival penalty edged Saints three scores ahead and then Naiqama’s fancy footwork and powerful running cut open Leeds to end any doubts about the final outcome.
  • Twice Saints came from behind in a first-half dominated by Leeds with tries from Regan Grace and Naiqama’s first.
  • Ash Handley scored two of the Leeds tries after smart handling from his centre Konrad Hurrell.
