Leeds Rhinos v St Helens, Thursday 29th June, kick off 8pm

Leeds Rhinos are back in action at Headingley Carnegie next Thursday as they face the resurgent St Helens in a crucial game for both teams play off hopes.

St Helens maintained their grip on sixth spot on Friday night when Matty Smith kicked a long distance drop-goal after the full-time hooter to complete an amazing fightback from St Helens against his old club Salford Red Devils at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Smith's perfectly struck kick from 40 metres completed the most remarkable of comebacks from Justin Holbrook's side who had looked dead and buried with seven minutes remaining as they trailed 24-8 and came away with a 25-24 win.

The home side scored three times in the closing stages to claw their way back into the game and eventually seal the win which broke Salford hearts, denying them a first away win against Saints in 37 years.

The two sides met on the opening day of the season at the Totally Wicked Stadium when the team then coached by Keiron Cunningham won 6-4. 


Last season, the game at Headingley Carnegie was an end to end affair. Leeds Rhinos held their nerve after throwing away a big early lead to beat St Helens 30-18.

Leeds raced into a 16-0 lead inside 11 minutes through tries from Jamie Jones-Buchanan, on his 300th Super League appearance, Adam Cuthbertson and Liam Sutcliffe.

Saints came storming back and looked set to go into the break ahead courtesy of tries from Kyle Amor, Luke Walsh and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, only for Carl Ablett to edge the Rhinos back ahead just before the half-time hooter.
Both sides continued to throw the ball around after the interval and it paid off for Leeds as Ash Handley touched down to extend their advantage before a Sutcliffe penalty secured a second win of the season for the Rhinos.
