Leeds Rhinos are off the bottom of the Betfred Super League table after beating Catalans Dragons 31-12. Leeds started well and tries early on from Adam Cuthbertson, Tom Briscoe and Brad Singleton put them in command before Arthur Romano pulled one back for the Dragons before half-time.

Sam Tomkins then went over and converted for the visitors to reduce the deficit again, but Konrad Hurrell and Jack Walker managed more tries for Leeds to end what was becoming a nervous finish for the home side.
Rhinos move up to ninth in the table following the win, although they are level on points (14) with Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR and London Broncos below them. Catalans are fifth, 16 points behind leaders St Helens.
