Record rugby win for Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos celebrating their third Grand Final win

Leeds Rhinos have made history by winning their third Super League title in a row against St Helens, beating them 18-10 in the Grand Final.

Lee Smith was one of the heroes of the match, scoring two tries on his final appearance for Leeds, but it was a closely fought contest.

Saints teenager Kyle Eastmond opened the scoring with a try and secured all of his side's points at Old Trafford.

And the lead kept switching between the two sides until Smith's try settled it.

The win continues an unprecedented run of success for the Rhinos in the Super League.

And coach Brian McClennan can now boast back-to-back Grand Final victories in his two years at the club.
