St Helens 10 Tries: Pryce Goals: M. Smith 3
Leeds Rhinos 8 Tries: Smith Goals: Sinfield 2
In a very tough game both sides scored a try a piece as defences were on top throughout.
Lee Smith scored a length of the field interception to put the Rhinos in front. Leon Pryce levelled the game off and with a penalty from Matty Smith and the Saints led 8-6 at the break.
The visitors enjoyed the bulk of the possession in the second half but with some great scrambling defence they failed to score a try. Kevin Sinfield
