Final: Women's Challenge Cup semi-final, Saints 10 Leeds 16

    Saints suffered Challenge Cup semi-final heartbreak when they were knocked out by a late Leeds rally.
  • They had led 10-4 after a Jodie Cunningham try and two Beth Stott goals.
  • But a Sophie Nuttall try levelled it, changing the game.
  • Saints went for a drop goal to win it, but it was picked up by Leeds full back Caitlin Beevers, who went full length for a converted score.
  • It was a heart-breaker for Saints after a fine effort - with a lack of composure at key times costing them.
