Kruise Leeming’s drop goal in the second period of golden point extra-time gave Leeds Rhinos’ prospects of reaching the Super League play-offs a huge boost as they closed day one of Magic Weekend in Newcastle with a dramatic 25-24 win over Hull FC.

Just two points separated the sides at the break after Marc Sneyd kicked his second penalty of the afternoon with the last action of the first half to put Hull FC into a 16-14 lead, followed by another penalty and a converted try from Connor putting them 10 points clear early in the second half.

The Rhinos fought back through tries from Leeming and Jack Broadbent to send the match into extra-time, with the former slotting over the crucial one-pointer after missing two previous attempts to help his side cement their top-six place and deal a blow to Hull’s hopes of being involved in the post-season shake-up.
