Leeds Rhinos earn a last-gasp win over Catalans Dragons on a breathless day of Super League action.

Leeds Rhinos have kept the pressure on Super League leaders St Helens thanks to a dramatic 32-31 win over Catalans Dragons at Headingley Stadium.

A total of 11 tries were scored during a breathless 80 minutes, but the game was decided with the last kick of the game when Liam Sutcliffe scored a penalty to snatch the victory for Leeds.

Meanwhile, new Bradford Bulls coach James Lowes has seen his reign get off to a losing start with a 50-24 hammering at Warrington Wolves.

The Bulls ran in four tries at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, but the hosts touched down nine times to record a comfortable win.

Gareth O'Brien and Joel Monaghan both went over twice for Warrington, while Ben Harrison and Rhys Evans were also among the scorers.

Elsewhere, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats were denied at the death as fellow strugglers Hull FC earned a 20-20 draw at Belle Vue.

The teams were tied at 6-6 following a cagey opening half before Nick Scruton's late try, converted by Paul Sykes, looked to have won it for the home side.

However, Joe Westerman added the extras to Kirk Yeaman's try in the final minute to see the points shared between the teams.
