Rhinos Scupper Hull Challenge
Posted by southstander on May 26 2009 - 22:06:37

Brace

Third welcomed sixth to Headingley as the cobwebs were blown away for the first time at HQ for a month.

Leeds needed to consolidate in third and keep Saints and KR within their sights while a real big win for the visitors could see them up to fifth, and Leeds drop to fourth.

Conditions were perfect for a great game.

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

Rhinos Scupper Hull Challenge

The Rhinos were without the injured Rob Burrow so started with Sinfield at stand-off and Danny McGuire at scrum half. There were plenty of ex-Rhinos in the FC side too, it resembled and old boys reunion.

With the sun, and wind, on our backs we looked to take advantage before it dropped behind the Western Terrace. It took just five minutes before Lee Smith went over off a Sinfield pass and through some weak defence to score. Sinfield failed to convert but it was a good start.

On ten the visitors were on the board themselves. A Radford kick hung in the air and was juggled by Whiting, under little pressure from Hall and Smith, before he dropped to the ground for the four pointer. Tickle added the extras into the wind. To compound our misery Danny Buderus was off injured and straight down the tunnel, Diskin came on as a replacement.

On twenty-one a forty metre Donald break gained field and under pressure Hull conceeded a penalty. The first play saw McGuire pass to Keith Senior who scored a try on his 300th Leeds performance. Sinfield added the extras and we were 10-6 up.

Five minutes left in the half and Leeds benefitted from a last tackle penalty. On the fourth Senior went close before McGuire kicked over the defensive line and Webb caught on the full and touched down in the same movement. Sinfields two made it 16-6.


Tries in 300th game

Two minutes from half time and a Horne grubber was collected by Yeaman as Donald was caught wanting. Catching and scoring in the same movement he gave Danny Tickle the chance to add the extras, but he surprisingly missed. Now it was 16-10.

But we weren't finished. As the siren sounded Lauiti'iti played a quick ball and Webb passed to Ablett who went past Thorman to score. Sinfield added the two for 22-10. Leeds seemingly in control mainly due to defensive lapses from FC.

As he had in the first half, Lee Smith opened the scoring in the second. Hull had knocked-on from a Leeds drop-out, and from the scrum Sinfield put Lee Smith through a gap to spring fifty to score. Sinfield adds the extras and at 28-10 we were easing towards the win.


Walk-in
Brilliant Rhinos defence on fifty-four kept out two successive sets from Hull, they visibly tired.

On fifty-eight a Senior break made thirty metres before he passed outside to Hall who fended off one tackler and went down the wing to score, improving the angle. Sinfield added the extras for 34-10, game over.

Fifteen minutes and Horne found Radford to cross from close range after a penalty against Kevin Sinfield for a ball steal. Tickle added the extras for 34-16. Hull still needed three converted tried to level the score.

A minute later and the margin was back when Sinfields kick-off was fumbled by Hull and a McGuire pass put Senior over for his second of the night. Sinfield added the extras and Leeds had the forty up.

Seventy-one and a wide pass from Webb found Hall who went down the wing and passed inside to McGuire to dive over. Alibert went to the video referee and the try was bizarrely ruled out. It made little difference to the outcome.

With a minute left Sinfield pinched the ball from Thackray and ran thirty to score. Sinfield added the extras for a personal haul of eighteen and the hooter sounded the end of the game and a 46-16 lead.

It wasn't a perfect performance but we had way too much for Hull. We missed Rob Burrow and with him you got the feeling that the winning margin would be a lot bigger. It is the first home win for two months, and very welcome.
