Quality shines through eventually for Rhinos in Challenge Cup

Leeds Rhinos were held for much of their Challenge Cup game by a strong defensive performance by Leigh Centurions.

The visitors went 12-6 up but Rhinos levelled the scores before halftime.

It stayed 12-12 until the seventy-second minute when Robbie Ward broke through the Centurions' ranks.

Rhinos pushed on and a Kevin Sinfield drop goal as well as a converted Zak Hardaker try finished the Championship leaders off.

The game at Headlingley finished 25-12 sending Leeds Rhinos through to the semi-final of the Challenge Cup.
