Saints rally to see off Rhinos but Warrington lead the way
St Helens and Warrington Wolves both maintained their 100 per cent records in Super League this season with contrasting victories on Friday.
Saints looked in danger of slipping up at home when Leeds Rhinos led 22-10 at half-time, captain Kallum Watkins' try sparking a barrage of points for the visitors.
Konrad Hurrell, Ash Handley and Mikolaj Oledzki also touched down before the break for Leeds, who saw Tuimoala Lolohea successful with three of his four conversion attempts.
However, Saints responded impressively after the break, scoring 17 unanswered points - including two tries for England prop Alex Walmsley - to secure a third straight win in the early stages of the campaign.
Warrington are the team sitting on top of the table on points difference, though, after they comfortably overcame bottom club Huddersfield Giants on the road.
Josh Charnley and Ryan Atkins bagged two tries apiece for the Wolves in a 32-20 result, with the Giants giving the final score a more respectable look by scoring 10 points in the final five minutes.
