Leeds Rhinos moved four points clear at the top of Super League with a hard-fought win over St Helens at Knowsley Road.

In a repeat of last years Grand Final played in driving rain on a very heavy pitch, Ali Lauitiiti scored the only try of the first half for Leeds. Kevin Sinfield kicked two goals; Shaun Long kicked three goals for Saints as they trailed 8-6 at the break.

Paul Wellens gave St Helens the lead but youngster Luke Burgess responded for the Rhinos. The home-side through the kitchen sink at Leeds but there defence held out to record an important two points.
