Brian McDermott's side took the lead after just five minutes when Tom Briscoe, who was on the losing side in last year's final, forced his way over.

Castleford cut the deficit shortly after when Daryl Clark pounced on a kick forward, but the conversion was missed to leave the Tigers two points down.

Leeds had a dominant spell before half time, with Ryan Hall and Danny Maguire both adding tries to leave the Rhinos 12 points ahead at the break.

Hall added his second inside the final 15 minutes to seemingly put the result beyond doubt, while Maguire kicked a drop goal late on to end any hopes of a Castleford comeback.

The win sees Leeds, who had lost six successive finals, lift the cup for the first time since 1999.
