Pryce out. Makeshift halfs for Saints, in Wilkin and Moore.

Has to be a Leeds win.
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

Perfectly good Saints try disallowed.

Saints penalised for tackling.

How could anyone think that the RFL and its officials might just favour a Leeds victory?

My word that was a harsh penalty against Scott Moore.

Couple of harsh late shot calls, it wasn't a high hit on Meli, though.

Nice try Leeds....

great try by wellens. Some justice there after one or two harsh calls. Mcguire having a terrific game up to now.

Another classic Cunningham try....
Pity the second tackler was Burrow, might have stopped him otherwise.

Game-breaker?
Meli walk-in.
Bad error by Leeds, I think that's done them.
It's only ht, but that's a big blow on the hooter...

Clucking Bell, what a mistake by Leeds. i've always liked that Meli bloke. Hope we sign him....

Good first half.
I really think Leeds should have run that pen on 7 mins, rather than take the 2.
Saints were (harshly) pinged on last tackle.
6 more at them from the 20 could have yielded more than 2, and emptied their tanks (gnfff fnnnarr).
Video ref used twice, got it right twice, though I don't think anyone had "scrum defence" as the restart on SQ thread.
Strong try by Wellens, typical legend © try and gift to roger, it's Skints game to lose.

Where the hell has this late tackle rule came from, none of them were late or malicious. Town had a couple against Hunslet thursday too that were exactly the same as at least a dozen tackles every single game. Good game so far though, Saints pack bossing the Leeds pack with considerable ease so far, which is a bit surprising.

could have been chalked off by a different video ref.
Leeds back in it....4 point ball game.
