Congratulations to Leeds; thoroughly deserved today in my opinion and over the playoffs. Warrington weren't at the races in attack tonight.

Leeds have made a mockery of the whole league system. They play ###### all year and then decide to play up in the play offs and GF. Something needs to be done to change it as why on earth are we bothering having a season? What a joke.

Special? They effectively ripped off their own fans picking and choosing the games they bother to play well in!

They work the system - like it or not, the GF is what matters and they just don't lose there ever since Peacock joined.

Bitterly disappointed but there we go. I guess it's true what they say about form being temporary and class being permanent, and while Leeds' form hasn't always been that great this year their class is clearly beyond doubt.

Congratulations to them yet again.

Being 5th now means nothing at all though. I think Saints should try winning it from 8th next season. We've wasted too much time and effort trying to get up the league table. We need a different tactic, clearly.

I agree, but I don't blame Leeds and take nothing away from them, they are the best under the system we have in place. Like it or not, the current playoff system means that there is minimal advantage from finishing high in the league, compared to the old one. Anyway, avoiding negativity, I thought it was an excellent GF and Leeds deserved to win it on the day.

All about balance, win enough games to be in the play offs, peak at the right time, reach the final.

Can only dream of that.

Great game, 2 great teams, great advert.

Stop the bitterness.

From a Wire fan who couldn't be there....

Fantastic evening of sport. I thought the pre match minute of applause was spot on. The atmosphere looked tremendous and came over wonderfully on the television.

Leeds had their game plan spot on and strangled the life out of the Wire attack. A fantastic, close game which until the last Leeds try could have gone either way. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Off to commiserate with myself with a gallon of rose wine.

Enjoy the party Loiners, you deserved it.

Brilliant match.

To those who'd do away with this way of deciding the title just watch it again and realise what we'd all be losing.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Going to Catalans and then Wigan away in 2 weeks, beating both then beating a really good Wire team in the final. For me, no other team apart from this Leeds team could do that. Thats not a joke its just class from a world class team. thought Sinfield and Delaney were quality tonight.

No wonder we dont get any media coverage with Rugby League fans like they are, there has just been 80 minutes of awesome rugby League in front of 70,000 people and we still get people moaning about it.

Just enjoy it ffs!!!

well done leeds were the better team. great game to be at and watch, great atmosphere as well. still think the system needs changing over the course of the season leeds didnt deserve it but ohh well.

on the dowside a handful of leeds fans spoiled the night by kicking off with every wire fan dont see why they couldnt get q ticket in the own end

Heartfelt commiserations to all the Warrington fans that post on here,your team were superb tonight,as they have been all season.
As usual some of the other posters can't or won't give Leeds the credit they deserve.To those that have,thank you.
Once you have tasted excellence,you cannot go back to mediocrity.
