Whilst plenty of talk surrounds who will play in the Betfred Super League Grand Final, there was indeed a Grand Final this afternoon.
Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity battled it out in the PDRL Grand Final with the Rhinos edging the game in Golden Point extra time.
The Rhinos had earlier in the day dethroned reigning Champions Warrington Wolves with a 16-6 win before they met Wakefield in the final.
The final ended 6-6 after 25 minutes before in golden point the Rhinos found a way through to win the game.
Wakefield led before Scott Gobin equalised whilst it was Ryan Owens who raced away to win the game in extra time.
We are the 𝑪𝑯𝑨𝑴𝑷𝑰𝑶𝑵𝑺! 💙💛

Feasibly, Leeds could be on for an amazing five Grand Final wins in the same season. This would be the first whilst the Leeds Rhinos women are looking forward to a fourth consecutive Grand Final appearance as they look to defeat league leaders York City Knights next Sunday at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
York recently defeated the Rhinos in the final league game to secure the League Leaders’ Shield whilst Leeds defeat York in the Challenge Cup semifinal earlier this year.
The Rhinos under 18s are also on the road to glory after victory over Warrington this afternoon to book their place in the Grand Final where they’ll meet St Helens who defeated Hull FC today.
Meanwhile, the Rhinos’ Wheelchair side are the benchmark in their competition and are striving to retain their title having already won the Challenge Cup.
Then of course there’s Rohan Smith’s men side who after victory over Catalans last night 20-10 are one step away from the Grand Final with a semifinal against Wigan on Friday.
