Vintage Rhinos Humiliate Classless Cas
Posted by southstander on August 12 2011 - 22:17:51

Brilliant Game
In the lead up to last weeks cup semi-final we spent the week speculating whether Rangi Chase would be playing for the Tigers, and whether our and the Castlefords fans fixation meant that they are a one man team.

Rangi did play last week, scored a crucial try and almost edged his side into the Challenge Cup final, indeed they were unlucky to lose.

Today we had the chance to see if they really are a one man team. They are...and he didn't play.

We bring you all of the action here......

Superleague XVI - Round 24

12th August 2011

Vintage Rhinos Humiliate Classless Cas

Castleford had paid a heavy price for their cup defeat in the form of injuries/absences of Hudson, Dixon, Jackson, Ferres and most importantly their talisman Chase. Leeds, on the other hand, were just without Brett Delaney who picked up a slight knock last week and was rested to give him time to recouperate. On paper this was a near full strength Rhinos against a second string Tigers, but would the visitors hurt at last weeks cup exit drive them to victory? Er.....nope!

Leeds should have opened the scoring on two minutes when Watkins made the first clean break of the game, drew the full back and then put in a poor pass to the supporting Buderus who had to reach forward and knocked on, line gaping in front of him.

On thirteen we were in for the opening score as Hall benefitted from a nice passing move, but somewhere Alibert saw a forward pass seen by no-one else in the Stadium and not evident on the video replay. NO TRY and the sides were still locked together.

On seventeen we officially got on the scoreboard after loads of pressure on the Tigers line, but it was a Cas mistake rather than Rhinos skill. On the last McGuire put in a grubber which looked to be running dead in goal and was being shepherded there by Owen. Jones-Buchanan thought better, dived at the ball, and grounded it just short of the dead-ball line. Sinfield goaled for a deserved 6-0 lead.


Over twice
On twenty-three we doubled the lead after a quick twenty tap allowed Jones-Buchanan, playing like he had deep heat in his jock-strap, to break to the Tigers forty before passing inside to Hall. The Rhinos free-scoring winger turned the Tigers defence inside out to cross and score behind the sticks. Sinfield added the extras for 12-0.

Three minutes later, as the rain started to fall, the Rhinos were really starting to dominate the game.

The ball was passed through a dozen pairs of hands before Castleford could effect a tackle. From this play-the-ball Watkins was first receiver and he crashed over the line. Sinfield goaled from wide for 18-0.

On the half-hour the Tigers looked to have scored but the in-goal judge managed to get Aliberts' attention before he pointed to the spot and the try was ruled out as the ball had been dropped on the line. It would be the closest that the visitors would come to scoring all game.

As the half-time hooter warmed Sinfields cool head opted for a penalty goal after Burrow was almost decapitated on the Tigers twenty. We went into the sheds with a very satisfying 20-0 lead which on reflection could have been a litte larger. The Rhinos defence had been nothing short of sensational, we'd made more clean breaks in the first twenty-minutes than we did the whole game last week, and we were really flinging the ball about looking for spaces. It was vintage Rhinos, and great to watch.

Leeds started the second half like a train, and within ten minutes were out of sight.

On forty-three some nice passing, including a couple which looked dubiously forward, saw Webb with ball in hand to go three metres and dive over. Sinfield added tow for 26-0.

Three minutes later and an excellent Hauraki fend and break saw him to the Cas twenty before he threw a high passout to Ben Jones-Bishop allowing him to go down the line and score in the corner. Sinfield hit the post from the sideline but we were up at 30-0.

On fifty Sinfield found himself a gap close to the Tigers line and while he could have scored he chose to pass outside to Ali Lauiti'iti who touched down for a popular try. Sinfields extras gave us 36-0 and it was starting to look humiliating for Mattersons men.

Leeds were now scoring almost at will.

On sixty-five it was Abletts turn to break the line and make it to the twenty before passing inside for Rob Burrow to cross unopposed. With Sinfield taken of the field the pocket-rocket converted his own try for 42-0. It was turning into a rout.


Two tries, two goals

From the kick-off Buderus broke to the Tigers thirty and passed inside to Burrow who again went under the sticks and converted his own try to take us to 48-0.

And we weren't finished as we twisted the knife.

On seventy-one another brilliant break down the right wing saw a looping ball from McGuire found Jones-Bishop who drew the last defender before putting in a grubber inside. Four Rhinos players were lined up to score and it was McGuire who collected and touched down. Burrow failed to goal, as he did on seventy-seven when Hall went down the winf and passed inside to Webb to get his second of the night.

We'd wrapped things up at 56-0, just a little bit different from last weekends nailbiter.

This was as good a performance as we've seen this season but against a shocking poor and weakened Tigers team missing five key players. We could have got another twenty points if we'd not bombed some simple chances but the most gratifying was the defence which with just the one exception never really looked like it would be breached.

Jones-Buchanan had an awesome game and Rob Burrow dropped a big hint that he doesn't like starting on the bench. There were plenty of other massive performances from the bloys in blue and amber and barely any complaints about a great team performance. Even Mr Halibut had a decent game with the whistle, the first time I've thought that this season.

On the down side we seemed to lose Bailey at half-time with some kind of knock, and hopefully Sinfield only left the field for a rest when the game was won. Apart from that we seemed to come through unscathed.

Away at the Harlequins next week to keep the confidence building, and then the big one!

Well done Leeds, tonight it was a delight to be there to witness the performance of the season.
