Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott has hailed the spirit of his club after their Super League Grand Final victory over St Helens at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Rhinos were 8-16 down before a flurry of late tries helped secure a 32-16 win.

"The culture and philosophy we have at this club gets you through dark times," said McDermott, who is the first English coach to guide a team to Grand Final glory in six years.

"Coaching this club is so special, for the humility and integrity the players show."

The Grand Final triumph was the Rhinos' fourth in the last five years.
