Leeds Rhinos flatten Toronto Wolfpack to go top of Super League


Leeds Rhinos moved to the top of the Super League table with a 66-12 triumph over Toronto Wolfpack at Headingley on Thursday.

Robert Lui and Luke Gale crossed twice as the Rhinos - who lost their home opener to Hull FC but have now won four on the spin - piled on the points against competition's bottom club.

Gale also produced a wonderful assist, his behind-the-back pass setting up Richie Myler for Leeds' second try that came after Brad Dwyer's close-range finish had opened the scoring.

Lui's brace arrived before the break as the rampaging Rhinos ran in 11 tries in total, all of them successfully converted by Rhyse Martin.

Ash Handley, Cameron Smith, Mikolaj Oledzki, Adam Cuthbertson and Konrad Hurrell - the provider for Gale's second of the contest with a powerful run - also touched down for Richard Agar's side.

Josh McCrone, who finished the game in the sin bin, and Jack Wells did go over for Toronto, but the Canadian team were soundly beaten, leaving them still without a point to their name in the top tier.
