  1. Good night

    FT: Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Leeds celebrate

    So Leeds Rhinos take the prizes at St Helens' Totally Wicked Stadium, seeing off Castleford Tigers in a dogged, hard-earned Women's Super League Grand Final.

    It's been a remarkable season for the women's game, which has seen them play the Challenge Cup final at Bolton's University of Bolton Stadium as a Challenge Cup semi-final precursor with the men, and now a stand-alone major event Friday night lights special.

    It seems the only way is up for the women, who have shown again they can deliver a big event.

    That's it from the women's Super League season in 2019... one more game for the men's campaign. Join us back here again tomorrow for Salford against St Helens. It promises plenty.

    The big dance in Super League, we kick off from 17:00 BST.

    Join us. Until then. Good night.

  2. Grand Final fever

    Salford v St Helens (18:00 BST, Saturday, 12 October)

    James Roby and Lee Mossop

    Don't forget it is the turn of Super League's men to have a dig for glory tomorrow, as Old Trafford swells with the colours of Salford and St Helens for the Grand Final.

    Saints have not won the title in five years, while Salford have not featured in a summer-era Grand Final at all - their past visit to the 'Theatre of Dreams' was the 1996 Division Two Premiership final.

    It's the stand-out team against the surprise package, and tomorrow, we've radio commentary from 5 Live plus live text commentaries here on BBC Sport from 17:00 BST.

  3. Leeds lift the trophy

    FT: Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Leeds win

    Courtney Hill hoists the Women's Super League trophy to the cold night's sky to backdrop of fizzing champagne and fireworks.

    The Woman of Steel, Challenge Cup winners and now Women's Super League champions.

    What a season for the Rhinos.

  4. Post update

    FT: Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Castleford Tigers looked on course for success at the half-way stage in this game, but Leeds showed mettle, morale and no little skill to drag the game away from them.

    It must be frustrating for Lindsay Anfield, who has built a side to compete, got to two finals and has had to watch her side beaten on the big stage.

    They've delivered and contributed so much, but will have to go again in 2020.

    Leeds can celebrate. What a turnaround.

    Goldthorp celly


    For the second time in 2019, it is Leeds Rhinos who come up with the goods in a major final and complete the double, adding the Super League title to the Challenge Cup they won back in July.

  8. Post update

    Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Castleford chance their arm with a big 'hail mary' style play but Leeds mop it up.

    Kelsey Gentles is up trying to put shots on... but Leeds have ridden it.

    Leeds get a penalty for hands in. Time has pretty much run out for Castleford.

    Cruel on Cas.

  9. Post update

    Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    I really hope that doesn't harm Sinead Peach's England nines hopes - she's set to head for the southern hemisphere tomorrow...

    Time running out for Cas, Leeds know that and are pumping that ball deep into the Cas half.

  10. Post update

    Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Castleford's Sinead Peach and Caitlin Beevers for Leeds crunch heads... it looks really painful.

    Hopefully both players are ok... it looked eye-watering. Ouch. Big lump on Sinead Peach's head. She's heading straight off.

  11. TRY: Cas Women 12-20 Leeds Women

    Kelsey Gentles

    Ahem. Who said this was over?!

    Castleford Tigers got a bit of front-foot ball thanks to Tara Stanley's linebreak, and when Georgia Roche angled out to the left, she timed her pass to put Kelsey Gentles in at the left corner to perfection, and the finish was superb.

    The goal is missed by Tara Stanley. There are five to go and they need two scores.

    Big, big finish to come.

  12. Post update

    Cas Women 8-20 Leeds Women

    Georgia Roche misses the pass from Rhiannon Marshall and the ball squirms loose to the floor. Castleford have the wind dragged from their sails again.

    It's crushing for the Tigers, their body language at breaks in play gives away their disappointment. They're still tucking in defensively, but Leeds are the team playing with pomp.

  13. Post update

    Cas Women 8-20 Leeds Women

    What a second-half performance by Leeds. They have dragged the game out of Cas' hands and well and truly stolen it away.

    Cas get a scrum from a Leeds error. They need points pronto.

  14. TRY: Cas Women 8-20 Leeds Women

    Ellie Frain, Courtney Hill goal

    Frain try

    Game over, perhaps.

    Leeds give themselves a huge step towards a Super League title thanks to Ellie Frain's steamtrain run into the gap, which was created by Courtney Hill just dropping the pace down, delaying the pass until the time was right and picking Frain's line to perfection.

    Superb game management from the Woman of Steel. It feels tough for Cas now to come back.

    They have dominated 2019... and might just end up with nothing.

  15. Post update

    Cas Women 8-14 Leeds

    Courtney Hill is pumping that ball down Maisie Lumb's throat, and the Cas Tigers winger drops the ball again. It's really tough in the lights, the pressure is on. Kelsey Gentles gives her a bit of encouragement.

    Leeds meanwhile going for the throat now. They want to sew up the double.

  16. TRY: Cas Women 8-14 Leeds Women

    Fran Goldthorp, Courtney Hill goal

    Goldthorp 2nd try

    BEAUTIFUL from Fran Goldthorp to put Leeds in front for the first time.

    That bob and weave I was talking about before... just helped dissect the Tigers defence, skipping the full-back and slicing through.

    Second try. Looked like she was held up by Hollie Dodd's last ditch effort but not rewarded. Try given.

  17. Post update

    Cas Women 8-8 Leeds Women

    Fran Goldthorp has an effortless bob and weave, and it helps her step and jink her way through the Tigers defence.

    Aimee Staveley thunders it up on the right edge, Courtney Hill sweeps the kick across field and Cas get away with it as Maisie Lumb hesitates and Fran Goldthorp almost pounces... but drops it.

    Leeds have got a tactic in sights now... pepper Maisie Lumb!

  18. Post update

    Cas Women 8-8 Leeds Women

    Castleford were really wobbling there!

    Amy Johnson drilled her way into the Tigers 10 and heading for the line, but she lost the ball.

    It was reefed out, with more than one in the tackle. Let off for Cas, who could have faced a penalty right in their own end.

    Ref Greg Dolan went the other way.

  19. Post update

    Cas Women 8-8 Leeds Women

    Ah... Maisie Lumb comes up with an error in her own half, spilling a dangerous kick.

    Leeds get a scrum in Cas territory. Dangerous time for the Tigers.

  20. TRY: Cas Women 8-8 Leeds Women

    Fran Goldthorp

    Goldhtorp 1st try

    Leeds level!

    Courtney Hill, like a 'will o'the wisp', just weaves her way through with a big show and go and when the Tigers swarm back to cover, she pops a basketball pass over the top.

    Fran Goldthorp got it, swerved her way through and stretched out a paw to ground the ball.

    Courtney Hill unable to swing her boot for the extras and as such - we remain level!
