Rhinos beat toothless Trinity, Tigers overcome Giants
Leeds Rhinos eased their relegation fears with a 10-0 Super League victory at Wakefield Trinity and Peter Mata'utia's drop goal gave Castleford Tigers a golden-point extra time win over Huddersfield Giants.
The Rhinos claimed a huge win over bottom side London Broncos on Magic Weekend and followed that up by seeing off Wakefield in the pouring rain at Belle Vue on Friday.
Tuimoala Lolohea sprinted 75 metres to score the only try of the game after intercepting a stray pass from Kelepi Tanginoa in the second half.
Liam Sutcliffe was on target with three penalties and winger Harry Newman produced an inspired display as the eight-time Super League champions moved level on points with Wigan Warriors and four clear of the Broncos.
