On this Day – 23rd September

ON THIS DAY in 2000 Leeds played Castleford in their first Play Off game and earned a 22-14 win at Headingley.

ON THIS DAY in 2011 Leeds 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.

ON THIS DAY in 2018 two tries from Brad Dwyer in the second half set Leeds Rhinos on their way to a 34-6 win over Halifax after a nervy first half that had seen the side’s locked at 6-6 at the interval.
