'Quins Roll Over Rhinos
Posted by southstander on June 14 2008 - 23:23:21

Nightmare

We made the journey to London full of expectation that, as red hot favourites, we'd be coming back up the M1 with the points. After Saints trounced the Bulls yesterday, we needed a win to re-establish the six point cushion ahead of next weeks visit from Saints, but the 'Quins hadn't read the script.

It was a Rhinos who looked tired and jaded and lacked ideas and composure, but in the end it was Sinfield kicking which cost us the game.

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

'Quins Roll Over Rhinos

Lee Smith was back in Blueys seventeen after proving himself in the reserve grade. Jamie Peacock, hole in arm now mended, was also back to take on the side against which he excelled in last months Carnegie Challenge Cup encounter. We were hoping for a more comfortable outing than last time, when a 'Quins fightback almost saw us throw away a commanding first half lead, and almost get dumped out of the cup.

Leeds kicked off in overcast, but nevertheless warm, conditions. It was a bigger crowd than last time, and in good voice.

Three minutes in, and after benefitting from a couple of favourable early Ashley Klein decisions, Peacock hit a Diskin ball at speed and walked through the only tackler to score an easy try. Sinfield kicked the conversion to keep his consecutive scoring sequence going. It was all too easy and we were 6-0 up.

But three minutes later and the 'Quins showed us that we might be in for a game. The London side worked the ball downfield and Sharp found himself on the overlap to cross in the left hand corner. Paul kicked well from the touchline to level the scores. Then, on sixteen, disaster. 'Quins had forced a Leeds dropout under the sticks and after moving the ball down to the Leeds line, Scott Hill went over after Diskin fell before making a weak tackle. Paul goaled for 6-12. 'Quins were looking hot, and Leeds were still on the coach. We needed the next score.

On the twenty-fifth minute McGuire broke the line and passed inside to Burrow to go over. Klein went to the video referee and the try was ruled out for a Sinfield obstruction. Very harsh, and no-way it would have been given without a video referee in attendance. Klein gave a penalty on the Leeds forty and Paul slotted it over for an eight point lead.

On thirty-two a long speculative kick on he last by Tansey was knocked-on by Melling under no pressure. Leeds probed and prodded for four tackles before a long pass from Rob Burrow hit Donald at speed and he improved the angle. Sinfield added the extras and reduced the arrears to two points at 12-14.


Scotty Tries

Despite being forced into dropping out, we held on until the half-time hooter and went in trailing by just two, despite having been dominated for long periods. For the second week running we trailed at half time, hopefully we'd have a similar second half to that last week against Hull FC.

The 'Quins got the second half off to a great start, playing Leedslike football. A daft Senior panalty gave the home side six tackles deep in the Rhinos twenty. On the third tackle, Randall crashed over and grounded the ball despite a crowd of Leeds tacklers. Paul kicked the goal and it was 12-20.

There were thirty minutes left, we just needed to be patient. But we needed to pick things up.

Fifty-seven minutes in and Leeds stepped up a gear. A McGuire break had given us good field position and as we moved the ball left Senior crashed over from ten metres. Sinfield, looking a little jaded, hit the post with the kick.


100%er
Just over an hour and Janowski dropped the ball on his own twenty, but a stray ball from Sinfield on the third tackle handed posession back.

On sixty-five Senior ended up in the sin-bin after a bit of fisty-cuffs, followed quickly by McCarthy-Scarsbrook. The 'Quins got a penalty and Paul slotted it over for 16-22. Fourteen minutes to go and we needed to score twice.

Eleven minutes to go and the game drifted a little further out of reach. A grubber from Hill was touched down on the dive by Sharp as Lee Smith got caught out of position. Paul added the two and it was a twelve point margin at 28-16.

Leeds caught a short kick-off, thanks to Ablett. Leeds probed the line and Burrow went over. Sinfield hit the post, the other one this time, with the kick and we trailed by eight.

Five minutes left and a dodgy penalty to Leeds allowed us field position. Ablett broke a challenge off a Burrow pass and found Donald who burrowed over in the corner. Sinfield missed the conversion and it was 24-28. One try needed, three minutes to get it.

With a minute to go, McGuire lost the ball in the tackle with plenty left. It was game over and the 'Quins held on for a well deserved win. Leeds had been lacklustre, tired, and full of mistakes. Once again we'd lost to a low-lying side in a game which everyone thought we'd win. The lead is down to four points and now we have to take on the Saints next week at Headingley. That should be a game that we can get up for.

This has been coming for a couple of weeks...it just happened to be the 'Quins who did it.
