Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott praises his side's determination as they dramatically defeat Wigan Warriors to reach the Super League Grand Final.

Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has described his players as "sensational" following their dramatic win over Wigan Warriors in the Super League playoff semi-finals.

Kevin Sinfield kicked a late penalty at the DW Stadium on Friday to earn the defending champions a 13-12 victory that has seen them through to a fifth Grand Final in six years.

"It's hard to find words to describe my players," McDermott told Sky Sports News. "They're just a sensational group of people.

"We stay tough and at this time of year you need balls of steel to succeed. When everyone else loses their nerve, we manage to keep ours."

St Helens and Warrington Wolves will meet on Saturday for the right to take on Leeds in next weekend's Grand Final.
