Alex Walmsley for Saints

BIG AL! ๐Ÿ’ช

Saints get their reward for some outstanding defence against plenty of second phase rugby. Bell kicks near the line and the ball comes off a Leeds man and into Walmsley’s hands!

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-20 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Saints have been having to deal with a lot of second phase ball, Leeds chucking it about trying to unlock the Red V defence but we keep fighting well.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-10 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Leeds on the last pass it out to the right edge, they kick back inside but Bentley knocks on.

Welsby and a Leeds man then come together and it’s one in, all in with the pushing and shoving.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-10 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Wow, what a collection of a bouncing kick from Bennison with Handley looking to catch it from Croft by our own line.


Croft lofts the ball high and Blake collects it but can’t get out of the in-goal. GLDO for Leeds.

๐Ÿ”„ Sironen off, Batchelor on.


Bennison makes a tackle on Leeds who have numbers on the left, but he knocks on as they try get the ball out. By the halfway line they will attack.


Once again on the last we have Leeds starting a set on their own line. Lomax drops a ball off for Hurrell, he charges to the line but four Rhinos stop him inches off the line.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-10 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Croft goes for a chip to the right corner, Blake collects it and gets down to the ground well.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-10 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Solid defence from the Saints, Lisone gets cut down by Wingfield and then we force Miller to throw the ball in touch.


Saints with the first threat in this half, Mbye’s spiral is allowed to bounce into our hands, we feed Bennison who kicks back inside and we tackle the Leeds man who catches it.

However, we concede an offside penalty


Forty minutes, four points the difference, and a spot in the final eight of the Challenge Cup up for grabs.


โš” Another BATTLE at Headingley tonight.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-10 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-8 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


38′ Again with Leeds on their own line, we go close, Sironen tries a dummy half scoot but the ball is stripped illegally.

Saints go for the kick, and Lomax pulls it wide.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-4 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


๐Ÿ”„ Knowles off, Delaney on.


Saints off another Leeds penalty push by the Rhinos line, Lomax almost jukes his way to the line but Mata’utia on the next play looks for an offload to Bell who knocks on.


๐Ÿ”„ Wingfield on, Lees off.


Curtis Sironen! What a tackle on Frawley, the South Stand at Headingley all felt that one!

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 6-4 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด

Rhyse Martin for Leeds Rhinos

Rhyse Martin adds the kick from in front of the sticks.

Harry Newman for Leeds Rhinos

Leeds get on the board off an intercepted pass, Newman takes the ball with Leeds by their own line and goes the length of the field.


๐Ÿ”„ Walmsley off, Bell on.

Both sides have traded a number of errors, Leeds have had their first major attack inside our 20m but Welsby fielded a chip kick well to stop the threat.


Mbye with a fantastic spiral kick moves us out of our own half after a strong Leeds defending set.


Frawley with Rhinos getting their first real chance to try attack inside our 20m chips and Welsby takes it and stays in touch off a great take.


Once again, St.Helens have Rhinos pushed back but Welsby tries a grubber but Lachie Miller handles it well and we concede an offside penalty.


Saints come up with an error of their own though, Mata’utia is judged to have knocked on at the play of the ball.

Leeds then give another error back, they knock on off a big hit and then stay on the tackle for a penalty


More good attack from the Saints has Leeds back in their own half, but Sironen is penalised for crossing behind Lomax.

St.Helens firm up and force Momirovski into touch!

Jonny Lomax for Saints

Saints have Leeds retreating backwards, Lees is then tip-tackled 25m out in front of the posts.

Lomax calls for the tee and tacks on two more points.


Good attacking set from the first points, we end it with Leeds by their own line.

๐ŸŒง Some heavy rain has just started here at Headingley too.

Jonny Lomax for Saints

Lomax nudges Saints in front off the tee.

๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ”ต 0-2 โšซ๐Ÿ”ด


Saints more in control at the start of the game, Lomax tries to evade the Rhinos on the left edge and he gets the ball stripped.

St.Helens elect to go for the two.


Our players push close again, Welsby tries to find Bennison on the wing but he cuts back in to ensure he stays in the field.

Welsby on the last goes for a crash ball to Sironen but we’re a metre short.


Leeds knock on as they try come out their own half, on the last Clark tries to get a grubber off near the try line but Sangare just about juggles it and stops us for now.

A better start from Saints than last week, a penalty lets us attack and Mbye gets us into goodball quickly.
