Danny McGuire crossed twice for Leeds

The Super League champions have been runners-up at Wembley for the last three years but they were heading for an early exit, thanks largely to the efforts of Chase.

If the 2011 Man of Steel was playing his final game for Castleford amid rumours of an imminent return to Australia, he looked determined to go out on a high as he scored his first try of the season and created another for his half-back partner Jamie Ellis to twice give his side the lead.

The Rhinos were trailing 12-10 after an hour but McGuire came to their rescue with a timely brace of tries as Leeds finished strongly to secure their place in Monday's fifth-round draw.
