St Helens will be looking to complete the treble when they tackle reigning champions Leeds Rhinos at Headingley in this year’s Betfred Women’s Super League Grand Final, 3pm kick off on Sunday, live on Sky Sports

Saints have been in stunning form in 2021, recovering from the cancelled 2020 season in style to finish top of the Women’s Super League table.

They won six of seven games in the regular season, scoring 370 points and conceding just 36 in the process. Then they would go on to win the Challenge Cup Final, beating York 34-6 in the June 5 showpiece before turning on the style in the play-offs.

In four play-off matches, they were unbeaten and scored an incredible 158 points, an average of almost 40 per game, and conceded just six points.

They then won 58-0 against Castleford at the semi-final stage to book their final spot.

In the opposite camp, Leeds have enjoyed a fine 2021, despite coming second to the dominant Saints side.

They were in top spot at the end of the regular season and ended up just short of their opponents this weekend. The 2019 Challenge Cup winners lost to Saints in the Cup semi-finals – an enthralling 20-12 contest in York – but will be keen to retain their Super League title from the same year.

Their journey to the final saw them win three from four fixtures in the play-offs, though never scoring more than 30 points in a game, before they edged out the ever-improving York side 22-18 at the semi-final stage.

Featherstone Rovers will also tackle Huddersfield Giants in the Women’s Super League Shield Final from 12pm.
