FC Sunk by Rampant Rhinos

After an tight opening quarter with chances few and far between it was the Rhinos who got on the board first in the 20th minute. The ball was moved to the right, Simon Brown found Ben Jones-Bishop joining the line. His offload went into the hands of Kallum Watkins, a big step off the right wrong footed the Hull defence as he went over for try 19 of the season.

Four minutes later, the Rhinos were in again. After a scrum on their own 20 the ball was again moved to the right and a marvellous one handed offload from Kallum Watkins released Lee Smith and the winger went 80 metres avoiding desperate challenges from James Hayne and Pat Smith. Simon Brown added the conversion and the Rhinos suddenly had a ten point lead.

The visitors hit back 5 minutes later, after forcing the Rhinos into two consecutive goal line drop outs the pressure began to tell on the Rhinos and Pat Smith sliced his way through the Leeds defence and rounded Ben Jones-Bishop to touch down by the side of the posts. Carl Puckering converted to bring the score back to 10-6 in favour of the Rhinos.

After withstanding more heavy Hull pressure, Leeds got a crucial score just before half time. After forcing an error deep inside the Hull half the Rhinos took full advantage. Gareth Moore stepping way through the Hull line before an ankle tap saw him roll over the line to touch down. Simon Brown converted to restore the Rhinos 10 point advantage. It got better for the Rhinos on the last play before the interval when Dane Manning broke through the Hull line and Lee Smith was on hand to touch down under the posts. Brown added the conversion to send the Rhinos into half time 22-6 up.

The Rhinos then got the first score of the second half with 7 minutes on the clock, a cross kick on the last tackle from Gareth Moore was collected after a huge leap by Lee Smith and all the winger had to do was fall over the line to collect a hat trick in consecutive weeks. Simon Brown added the conversion to take the lead to 28-6.

Leeds further extended their lead after 55 minutes, a 40-20 from Simon Brown giving Leeds field position deep inside Hull territory. Danny Allan shrugging off three would be tacklers to touch down. Two minutes later the Rhinos were in again, the ball moved quickly to the right by Simon Brown and Kashley Watkins sent Lee Smith in at the corner for try number 4. Simon Brown added one of the conversions to take the Rhinos 38-6 ahead.

The Hull resistance had finally been broken as Leeds began to take total control of the game, the next try was almost a carbon copy of the previous one. The ball again moved to the right but this time it was Joe Howey providing the money ball for Ben Jones-Bishop to get in at the corner. Leeds got the next score, a long pass from Danny Allan was left by Simon Worrall but it fortunately hit Jodie Broughton on the legs, rolled over the line and centre dropped on the ball to score. Simon Brown added a further conversion to put the Rhinos 48-6 ahead.

Leeds breached the 50 point mark with 9 minutes to go, an offload from Luke Hardbottle went to ground. The ball was fumbled back by Joe Howey into the hands of Joe Chandler and the prop stepped his way through to go over by the posts. Simon Brown converted to take Leeds 54- 6 ahead. But Hull struck straight back, Carl Puckering intercepting a pass on the Leeds 20 to go over the line untouched. His conversion then went in off the posts to put the vistors into double figures.

Leeds weren't finished, and crossed again with 4 minutes to go. Again quick hands to the right from Simon Brown and Joe Howey found Ben Jones-Bishop in the centre position and he sent Jodie Broughton in at the corner for his second try of the game. Then on the last play of the game the ball Danny Allan powered his way over the line to collect his second try of the game. Simon Brown was unable to convert either try but it let Leeds 62-12 winners to retain their place at the top of the table.

A very good performance from the boys against a team that run main title challengers St Helens very close at Brantingham Park a couple of weekends ago. Danny Allan was influential in everything the Rhinos did ably assisted by the half backs Simon Brown and Gareth Moore. Lee Smith though, with his four tries, took the man of the match award
