The team is one win away from history after winning 20-13 in the Super League semi-final against St Helens on Friday.

The Rhinos will now face Wigan Warriors at Old Trafford on Saturday, October 11, in their first Grand Final since 2012.

Victory would complete the first clean sweep in the club’s history.
