Rip-Roaring Start for U21's

Attacking the Western Terrace, Leeds suffered an early blow when Luke Burgess was forced off the field with concussion after forcing a mistake from Jason Lee. On the resulting set Leeds moved the ball left and Luke Gale found Nathan McAvoy. His huge fend on Neil Wall created the opening and he run all over the top of Gareth Hall to touch down. Gibson was off target but Leeds led 4-0.

Leeds struck again in the 7th minute and again Nathan McAvoy was prominent in the build up. He was held just short of the line but it took 5 Huddersfield defenders to bring him down, this allowing Jamie I’Anson the opportunity to scoot over from Dummy half to touch down out wide. Gibson converted and Leeds were soon into a 10 point lead.

Huddersfield struck back in the 13th minute after Chris Buttery was ruled to have knocked on in his own 20, from the scrum the Leeds defence never got organised and Leroy Cudjoe sent Gareth Hull through a huge gap to touch down. Danny Garside converted to bring the Giants back to within 4 points. Leeds hit straight back, after forcing an error from Fagborun, the Rhinos started deep in the Huddersfield half. After Tansey was ruled to be held down just short of the line the Rhinos run the ball and Chris Feather charged on to the tap to go over, Gibson converted and the Rhinos were 16-6 to the good after 18 minutes.

Leeds then stretched their lead in the 28th minute when a kick from Cudjoe ran over the Eastern goall ine. Leeds got on with proceedings, I’Anson tapped the ball to Peter Fox and he went the distance to go under the posts despite the best efforts of Luke George. Gibson had the simple task of adding the extras to give the Rhinos a 22-6 lead.

The Rhinos hammered home their advantage five minutes later, Ashley Gibson running across the line and finding a gap, he had Jordan Tansey on his outside and the scrum half went on a mazy 60 metre run to the line. Gibson converted and the Rhinos led 28-6. On the very next set the Rhinos scored again, Chris Feather this time releasing Jordan Tansey, he had options left and right but went to his half back partner Luke Gale who went in by the posts. Gibson converted to take the Rhinos into half time 34-6 up.

Leeds struck first in the second half after 7 minutes after forcing a goal line drop out, that was superbly kept in play by McAvoy, the ball was moved to the South Eastern corner into the hands of Gibson, his attempted offload to Archibald was batted down by Fagborun, Gibson recollected to stretch out and touch down. The conversion was wide but Leeds stretched their lead to 38-6.

Leeds went in again in the 56th minute, Gibson with the break, he found Luke Gale but he was hauled to ground by Luke George. It was last tackle and Leeds went for the powerplay And quick hands from Halliday, Brown and McAvoy sent Peter Fox in at the corner. Gibson was off target with the conversion but the Rhinos were over the 40 point barrier.

The Giants went close on 64 minutes when Cudjoe was stopped short by a combination of Gibson and Archibald, but Leeds hit back 5 minutes later when after a penalty the ball was moved right and Luke Gale put Ian Kirke in through the gap. Gibson converted and the Rhinos led 48-6.

The Rhinos broke to 50 point barrier with 4 minutes to go when Liam Halliday put Luke Gale through a huge gap and he easily rounded Gareth Hull to go in under the posts. The kick for Gibson was easy and the Rhinos run out easy 54-6 winners.

A solid start from the Rhinos, the Giants never really provided a test for a Rhinos side the hit the ground running. McAvoy and Gibson were superb in the centres as was Peter Fox. The pack overcame the early loss of Luke Burgess and had too much power up front, Chris Feather and Ian Kirke leading the way. Jordan Tansey continued his good form from last season but the first SouthStander.com man of the match for 2006 was Luke Gale.
