Match Action – Huddersfield 28 Leeds Rhinos 34

Leeds Rhinos scored some sensational tries as they booked their place in the Grand Final Qualification Semi Final with a well earned win at Huddersfield.

Teenager Zak Hardaker grabbed his first hat-trick of tries for Leeds as they held off a spirited fightback by Huddersfield to win 34-28 and move to within 80 minutes of the Super League Grand Final.

The 19-year-old three-quarter, pressed into service in the absence of three first-choice centres, was the star of this preliminary semi-final at the Galpharm Stadium, where fast-fading Huddersfield's season came to an abrupt end.
