Leeds win on emotional night

Leeds Rhinos bid farewell to the iconic South Stand with a victory as they strengthened their grip on second place with a 16-14 win over St Helens.

In an error-ridden contest, Adam Cuthbertson’s secured victory for the Rhinos, allowing their fans to enjoy the send off to the stand that will be demolished soon.

Saints led 8-2 at half-time thanks to Jonny Lomax’s try, which came after the side exchanged penalty goals in a scrappy contest.

But Ryan Hall scored on his 300th appearance for the club, before Cuthbertson and a late Kallum Watkins penalty secured the result.
