Jamie Jones-Buchanan brands Super League side as “unidentifiable”

On five occasions Leeds Rhinos and St Helens have collided at Old Trafford to determine the destination of the Super League title.

In three Grand Finals in a row from 2007-09, the Rhinos ended St Helens’ unbeaten record in Grand Finals with three title wins in a row.

Then in 2011 they beat the Saints to become the first side to win the Grand Final from fifth.

The Saints avenged those defeats last year as they made it four titles in a row by defeating Leeds 24-12.

Leeds gained a measure of revenge earlier this season with a Blake Austin drop goal defeating the World Champions in their own backyard and now the two will collide yet again tonight at Headingley.

Ahead of the game tonight, Jamie Jones-Buchanan had his say on Leeds Rhinos, his former side.

“Leeds are unidentifiable. You get something slightly different from them week to week.

“They have already beaten St Helens this year so Saints will be motivated.”

It is true that week to week you aren’t sure what you are going to get from Leeds. This is a Leeds team that have put 40 points on Wigan Warriors but are the only club who have lost to Castleford Tigers other than bottom club Wakefield Trinity.
