I don’t think anyone associated with Leeds Rhinos are going to forget yesterday quickly.

The Rhinos trailed 30-6 with about a quarter of the game to go yet somehow won in golden point extra time through a superb Aidan Sezer solo try.

A great story, one that can be seen in very dramatic fashion on social media.

Let’s start with halftime, the Rhinos trailed 16-6 despite a Liam Sutcliffe try and had fans knowing they could do better especially after last week’s win over Wigan.

Things only got worse when Matt Prior got sent off at 30-6. It looked like game over and had fans criticising the veteran forward.

But it was a very different story when Rhyse Martin, after a hat-trick from Richie Myler and a try from Brad Dwyer, levelled matters with a penalty to send the game to golden point.

And of course, things got even wilder after Aidan Sezer’s golden try in golden point.

Such a dramatic game, plenty of people were devastated that it wasn’t televised.

But most chose to focus on the positives specifically Rohan Smith showering him in praise after another win. One person even backed Leeds to win the grand Final under him.

As per usual Rob Oates really enjoyed the win with a great behind the scenes video.

And of course the players were over the moon too.

But the biggest story of the day was the revival of the pink kit’s lucky charm in the most dramatic way.
