12 Try Warriors Crush Rhinos

The Warriors only arrived at Headingley Carngegie 30 minutes before the scheduled kick off time after hitting heavy trans-pennine traffic and after weathering an early storm from the Rhinos defeding three sets on their own goal line they hit Leeds with a quick fire double. On 12 mintues Mark Flanagan released Richard Mathers and he sent Jo Mellor over, then Lee Mossop broke through the Leeds defence on the South Stand side and released Josh Charnley went went in from 40 meters out. Josh Vievers converted both and the visitors were 12 points to the good.

Leeds couldn't get their hands on the football, by the time they got it back courtesy of a Wigan penalty they were a further 10 points down. First Tim Smith putting a chip through the Rhinos line and Mathers was first to the ball and then straight from the kick off Daryll Goulding went up the 80 meters up the South Stand touchline, swatting the Leeds defenders off to score in the corner. Vievers only converted the first try but the Warriors were 22 points up inside 22 minutes.

The visitors further extended their lead after 28 minutes, Liam Farrell making the break up the South Stand side before Goulding and and Charnley exchanged passes and the centre claimed his second try of the evening. Vievers was unable to convert but it extended the Wigan lead to 26. The Rhinos then claimed their first try of the evening 2 minutes later, the Warriors were trying to spread the ball in their own quarters and the ball went to ground and Ben Collins gathered the loose ball to go in from 20 meters out. Simon Brown converted the try to reduce the gap to 20 points.

The Warriors though continued to press the Rhinos line and further extended their lead after 36 minutes, Replacement Sam Cunningham making the initial break before finding Paul Prescott and his delightful "round the back" pass sent Mathers in under the posts. 2 minutes later the visitors were in again, this time Mathers with the break and he sent Jo Mellor in for his second try of the evening. Vievers converted both to send the Warriors into half time with a 38-6 lead.

The Rhinos though were first on the scoreboard in the second half, Paul McShane breaking through the Wigan line on half way and Ben Jones-Bishop was on his shoulder to go over from 40 metres out. Simon Brown added the conversion to take the Rhinos to double figures. The Warriors hit straight back, Mellor moving the ball to the left and Richard Mathers found a gap in the Leeds defence to go over for his hat-trick. Vievers conversion attempt drifted across the face of the posts and the Warriors now led 42-12. Two minutes later Vievers crossed after good work by Flanagan and Mellor in the build up, he added the conversion to take the Warriors within two of a half century of points.

The Warriors crossed the 50 point barrier with 13 minutes to go. Lee Mossop making the initial break through the Rhinos defence to get the Warriors field position. A quick play the ball saw Mathers and Mellor create the space and Tim Smith forced his way over the line by the side of the posts. Vievers converted to take the Warriors 54-12 ahead. Two minutes later the Warriors were in again, again Mossop splitting the Rhinos defence and Paul Prescott was on hand to stroll over the line. Veivers again added to conversion as the Warriors hit the 60 point mark.

The Warriors rounded things off with three minutes to go, the Rhinos losing possession inside their own half. Mellor recovered the loose ball and quickly moved it wide via Veivers to Stefan Marsh and the Wigan winger crossed under the posts to complete the entire Warriors back line crossing over the tryline. Vievers added the conversion to give him 9 for the evening and complete a 66-12 victory for the visitors.
