Leeds pick up vital points
Leeds Rhinos picked up a vital two points in the relegation battle as they defeated Castleford Tigers 18-10 at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.
James Clare scored two second-half tries in quick succession for the Tigers but that wasn't enough to gain two points for Daryl Powell's men.
Rhinos' new skipper Trent Merrin opened the scoring for Leeds in the first-half and young full-back Jack Walker scored the second try of the game three minutes into the second-half, before Clare went over twice for Castleford.
However, Leeds' new boy, Robert Lui all but sealed the victory for his new club with a try on his 200th career game.
Leeds are now two points off the bottom of the table ahead of their relegation four-pointer against Hull KR next week.
