Leeds Rhinos 34 Wakefield Wildcats 26

Leeds’ departing stars bade farewell to Headingley on a high as the Rhinos ended the regular season with a welcome victory against Wakefield.

With six members of their side playing their last league game for the club, the Rhinos returned to winning ways ahead of the Play Offs.

Chev Walker opened the scoring after nine minutes. Some slick handling from the Rhinos saw the ball worked out to Walker, who offloaded to Calderwood before taking the winger's reverse pass to cross the line with ease.

The touchdown allowed Leeds to not only equal but overtake the Super League record of scoring 1,120 points in a season set by Bradford in 2001.

Skipper Kevin Sinfield failed to add the extras from near the touchline before Wakefield hit back, drawing level after 16 minutes.

Wildcats second row Kevin Henderson collected a loose ball and intelligently offloaded to the on-rushing Rob Spicer, who raced over the line to draw the visitors level.  David March's conversion edged Wakefield ahead as they sensed another shock victory.

But their joy was short-lived as Leeds took just three minutes to regain the ascendancy. Pressure on Wakefield's line allowed Great Britain stand-off Danny McGuire to find Willie Poching.  He slipped through two tackles and provided McKenna with the easiest of tasks to cross the whitewash from barely two yards out.

This time Sinfield did convert to make 10-4 but the Wildcats remained a threat on the counter-attack.  And they stunned Leeds again shortly before the half hour mark when Ben Jeffries collected Sam Obst's neat grubber and crossed the line.

March failed to convert to leave the scores finely poised at 10-10, but after McGuire had an effort ruled out, Poching crossed the line out wide for his second 13 minutes after the restart.  Sinfield converted to give Leeds a little breathing space.

Sinfield then kicked a penalty and quickfire tries from Calderwood and Poching secured the points for Leeds.
Austin Buchanan, Sid Domic and Obst replied with late touchdowns for Wakefield but with Calderwood completing his brace and Sinfield kicking five goals from seven, the Rhinos were back to winning ways.
