Reserve Grade Back On Track

After both teams squandered early opportunities to register points it was the Rhinos who got on the board with 8 minutes on the clock. A neat kick through on the last tackle was pounced on at the back of the in goal by Ben Collins. Simon Brown then adding the conversion from the touchline to edge Leeds 6-0 ahead.

The Bulls hit back with a quarter of the game gone, after Leeds lost the ball in their own half the visitors took full advantage. George Flanagan and Johnny Horton combining to send full Aaron Lyons over. Karl Wroe added the converstion to draw the Bulls level.

It was a tight game with neither team budging, but the Rhinos had the best of the chances. Ashley Gibson was held up by a superb tackle from Danny Addy and was then ruled to have knocked on over the line. Then just before half time Johnny Horton was denied over the line when Danny Allan somehow managed to get his body under the ball over the line and then right on half time Colton Wray knocked on with the line begging to send the teams in level at half time.

The Rhinos got the perfect start to the second half, after a 40-20 from Simon Brown on the opening set of the half put the Rhinos onto the front foot. A kick on the last tackle from Ben Kaye caused bedlam in the Bradford defence as the ball richoceted off the legs of Aaron Lyons and Danny Allan was on hand to touch down. Two minutes later the Rhinos were in again, an offload from Eric Anselme to Ben Jones-Bishop for the RHinos moving, he found Chris Clarkson who went down the Northern touchline and Danny Allan was on hand to collect his second. Simon Brown convertred both tries and suddenly the Rhinos led 18-6.

The Bulls hit straight back with 15 minutes of the half gone, back to back penalties allowing the Bulls to get a foothold in the Rhinos half and they took full advantage. After returning from a spell on the sidelines the return of George Flanagan sparked the Bulls and an offload from Danny Addy sending sending Eddie Kilroy in at the corner. Karl Wroe was unable to convert but it reduced the Rhinos lead to 8 points.

Leeds hit back and extended their lead with 24 minutes of the second half gone, after play was stopped for Jode Sheriffe to leave the field with an injury, the Rhinos struck. The ball was moved to the left and French scrum half Nicolas Delgal put Kashley Watkins through the gap and the front rower slid over. Simon Brown added the extras and Leeds were 24-10 ahead.

The Bulls wouldn't lie down and hit back four minutes later, a kick through on the last tackle was fumbled by Danny Lawton and Jamie Sheperd was on hand to pick up the loose ball and touch down. Karl Wroe added the extras to reduce the gap to 8 points. Bradford though, lost the ball in their own 20 on the return set from the kick off. To compound things, they condeded and penalty and two tackles later Gareth Moore scampered over from dummy half. Simon Brown kept his perfect record with the boot to put the Rhinos 30-16 ahead.

After a high tackle on George Flanagan saw the Bradford hooker come out flinging punches he and Danny Allan were dispatched to the Sin Bin. It raised the temperature on the field and in the stands as the South Stand got behind the Leeds team and they were treated another Leeds try when Kashley Watkins collcted his own kick through after a deflection off a Bradford defender and he sent Tom Sheldrake over from 30 meters out. Simon Brown added the extras to take leads 20 points clear.

Bradford claimed a consolation score on the last play of the game when Colton Wray sent Ethan Phillips in at the corner with the Rhinos defence no where to be seen. Wroe was unable to add the extras but the Rhinos began their countdown to the playoffs with a hard earned 36-20 victory.
