Leeds Rhinos have won the Grand Final against St Helens for a fourth time in five years after coming from behind to win 32-16 in a dramatic finale at Old Trafford.

Brian McDermott’s side create history in Super League by being the first team to win the title decider from a final position of fifth in the regular season.

Rob Burrow-inspired Leeds produced a dramatic comeback as the Rhinos floored St Helens yet again.

Burrow made a sensational impression from the bench by putting Leeds into an early lead and then setting up the game-clinching try for Ryan Hall after Saints had taken control.

A controversial Tom Makinson try and another effort from Michael Shenton had put Saints 16-8 ahead but Leeds responded through Webb before Hall, Carl Ablett and Zak Hardaker sealed glory at rainswept Old Trafford.
