Leeds Rhinos made it four wins on the bounce as they demolished Salford City Reds at the City of Salford Stadium.
After their three match winning run came to an end in Perpignan last weekend, the City Reds faced the daunting task of trying to get past the World Champions Leeds Rhinos.
Having not beaten Leeds at home in Super League, Salford made a bright start and took the lead on nine minutes when Daniel Holdsworth's kick bounced nicely for Vinnie Anderson to score the opening try.
However, this was as good as it got for them as the Rhinos blew them away with 54 unanswered points. Chris Clarkson raced onto Kevin Sinfield's well-timed pass for Zak Hardaker to finish things off.
Sinfield's conversion made it 6-4 and it got even better for the visitors as Brent Webb sent Brett Delaney over midway through the first half and Sinfield obliged with the conversion to make it 12-4. Then the floodgates opened as Leeds raced into a 32-4 lead by the interval. Danny McGuire's 90 metre sprint was only stopped by a superb Luke Patten tackle but Leeds spun the ball out wide for Kallum Watkins to round Stuart Howarth with ease.
It was Sinfield' turn to get on the try scoring sheet as he collected Ben Jones-Bishop's kick for his four pointer of the season. Carl Ablett gathered McGuire's kick for Liam Hood to notch his third try in three sub appearances. Sinfield and Watkins combined for McGuire to cross in the corner just before the break as the Rhinos made it six unanswered tries.
In the second half Leeds continued their try scoring form. Hardaker started things off as he showed real pace and skill to waltz thorugh the hosts defence for a brace. Sinfield's conversion made it 38-4 and the hat-trick arrived on the hour mark after smart inter-passing by Ablett and Webb.
Then history was made by Kevin Sinfield. By adding the extras, he broke Lewis Jones Leeds Rhinos all time points scoring record of 2,920 points which has stood since 1964.
Rob Burrow scooted over for the Rhinos' ninth try before Ablett crossed for the tenth on 71 minutes as Leeds were running riot. However, Salford did make the score more respectable by adding two late consolations from Gareth Owen and Luke Pattern.
