St Helens 42-12 Leeds Rhinos: Konrad Hurrell Scores Twice In Super League Drubbing

Former Leeds favourite Konrad Hurrell scored two tries against his old club to help St Helens to an impressive 42-12 win that takes them six points clear in their pursuit of an unprecedented fourth successive Super League title.

Hurrell, who has enjoyed a new lease of life since his move from Leeds in the winter, also scored in Saints’ 26-0 win at Headingley in April and his well-taken tries in the early part of each half put them on their way to a sixth successive league victory.

England prop Alex Walmsley also touched down twice as Saints ran in 16 points in the last 14 minutes against the fast-fading visitors.

Leeds’ misery was compounded by the 76th-minute dismissal of forward Zane Tetevano for a high tackle on Hurrell, in addition to the earlier sin-binning of Bodene Thompson.

Bennison operated at full-back in place of the injured Will Hopoate while Leeds had Aidan Sezer back after a nine-match absence to renew his half-back partnership with Blake Austin
