Leeds Rhinos 70 St Helens 0

Leeds Rhinos became the first team ever to nil St Helens in the Super League era on a night that will live long in the memory of anyone who was at Headingley that night.

Leeds scored four tries in the opening 14 minutes effectively ended the game as a contest.  The first came inside 90 seconds to winger Marcus Bai before McGuire scored the next three for a eight-minute hat-trick.

Kevin Sinfield kicked all four conversions and a penalty to open up a 26-0 lead before the quarter mark.  Leeds added a fifth try on 27 minutes, with McGuire, Richard Mathers and Senior putting Bai over for a second.  And a brace for giant prop Wayne McDonald either side of half time – as he crashed over from close range from Matt Diskin passes – put them out of sight at 44-0.

Diskin got his own name on the scoresheet with a deserved score on 48 minutes, supporting Matt Adamson's break to race home from 35 yards, Sinfield bringing up the half century with his eighth perfect goal.  Senior again exposed weak Saints defence and put Richard Mathers over for Leeds' ninth try, and Bai crossed for his hat-trick try after the hour following Chev Walker's initial burst down the right.

Ali Lauitiiti crossed after another flowing handling move as Leeds moved 66-0 up, but one barrier still remained for the Rhinos.  Saints had never been held scoreless in the Super League era – January 1995 was their last blank – but the Rhinos managed to keep their line intact.

They still had time for Senior to finally touch down, as he powered in from McGuire's pass to add a 12th try and give Leeds their highest score of the season at 70-0.
