Rhinos charge up the table.

LEEDS fought back from a 9-0 half-time deficit to beat Huddersfield 20-12 at Headingley yesterday and move up to second in the Super League standings, writes Steve Palmer.

Kallum Watkins was the hero for the Rhinos, scoring two secondhalf tries which turned the match on its head, putting the Yorkshiremen to within four points of table-toppers St Helens.

Huddersfield still covered the match handicap, though, having got a 12-point start with most layers.

Bradford secured a 21-10 win at Warrington. The Bulls, 12-5 outsiders for the match and in receipt of a ten-point handicap start by some layers, built a 9-0 halftime lead and never looked back..SUPER LEAGUE STANDINGS P WD L F APts St Helens ......16 13 0 3 491 272 26 Leeds ............16 11 0 5 399 249 22 Hull KR ..........16 10 1 5 372 297 21 Harlequins ....15 10 0 5 389 269 20 Huddersfield 16 10 0 6 382 269 20 Wakefield......17 9 0 8 413 395 18 Wigan ..........17 7 0 10 390 343 14 Hull ..............16 7 0 9 316 371 14 Warrington ..16 7 0 9 355 413 14 Castleford ....16 7 0 9 345 421 14 Bradford........15 6 1 8 326 375 13 Catalans ........15 6 0 9 352 418 12 Salford ..........15 5 0 10 252 433 10 Celtic Crus.....16 2 0 14 240 497 4
