Marching on together indeed, as did two legends in Danny McGuire and Rob Burrow, who bowed out of the Rhinos colours in fine style with their eighth Super League title to date!
The Rhinos, once again, defied their critics by claiming another Super League title, this time against league leaders Castleford Tigers.
Despite conceding all four previous meetings to the Tigers in 2017, the Rhinos demonstrated the need to win when it mattered most and reclaimed the ‘champions’ title as their own once again, despite many saying otherwise.
In reflection to Kevin Sinfield’s speech of 2011, this night was for all the people who wrote them off as they shrugged off last season’s woes in superb fashion.
Plenty of highs as well as some lows for Leeds in 2017, find out how their season panned out under Brian McDermott.
Best Performance: Hull FC 24-52 Leeds Rhinos
Their best 80 minutes of 2017 has to be their 52-24 hammering of old enemies Hull FC at the KCOM stadium.
It was their sixth consecutive win they recorded over their most favoured team in recent seasons, something of an achievement considering where both clubs finished up.
Joel Moon starred in the rout, scoring two tries plus further efforts from McGuire, Ryan Hall, Matt Parcell, Kallum Watkins, Mitch Garbutt and Anthony Mullally obliterated the Airlie Birds in their own backyard.
Hull’s form might not have been the best but credit to Leeds for taking full advantage.
Travelling to Hull nowadays is no easy ride, given their back-to-back Wembley wins, so for Leeds to go there and record over 50 points is remarkable in itself!
One of many wins that would take them all the way back to Old Trafford as the Rhinos established themselves once again as a major force!
