Rhinos Triumph in Points Feast
Posted by southstander on April 11 2010 - 18:37:16

Two Try Keef

With three points from the last two games the Rhinos looked to continue their good run with the visit of the Airlie Birds. This was the first game in a six day double-header that will see us travel to the KC Stadium next saturday for a Challenge Cup encounter in-front of the nation via the BBC.

We needed the two, we needed the confidence booster, and we needed to show FC that they would be in for a tough encounter next week.

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

Rhinos Triumph in Points Feast

Burrow and Buderus were back in the Leeds starring line up after being dropped, and benched, respectively last week in France. Sinfield returned to his familiar loose-forward position and we had a bench packed with forwards. Hull FC are a team with almost as many injuries as we have and were without Long, Tickle and Fitzgibbon (but expect all three of them to play next week at the KC).

It didn't take the Rhinos, in-front of what looked a pretty packed house, to start the scoring.

With six minutes on the clock a crossfield kick by McGuire towards Smith was touched by a Hull hand and we got another six tackles. The ball was moved left and Senior went over on the overlap. Sinfield goaled well from the touchline for 6-0. It was a great start.

On eighteen a Sinfield half-break saw him downfield where he looked left to the supporting Burrow rather than the right where McGuire was clear to the line. Burrow made the most of it and evaded one tackle to put a long ball to Ryan Hall who crossed in the corner. Sinfield again kicked well from wide for 12-0.


Returning to Form
As we approached the half-hour mark we were in again as we kept the ball alive brilliantly, with Burrow bossing the piece like the little general we know he can be. After passing through a dozen pairs of hands Burrow threw a wide pass to Senior who did the same to Hall who went to ground early but scrambled over the line as the Hull players failed to complete the tackle.

Sinfield missed the conversion but the lads were right on-song amounting to a 16-0 lead with no real response from the visitors.

The we did what we've been inclined to do so far all season, we took our eye off the ball and let the visitors get right back into the game.

On thirty-one Yeaman broke down the left wing, drew Brent Webb and passed to Briscoe to cross unopposed. Whiting converted well for 16-6.

Four minutes later and Briscoe bagged a brace as a brilliant offload from Yeaman put him over in the corner. Whiting missed the conversion but the visitors trailed by just six as the half-time hooter called the teams into the sheds.

We'd had a great start, were playing with some confidence and then just had a ten minute spell of madness allowing the Airlie Birds to get over the whitewash twice. We needed better second half defence.

At the start of the second half it went from bad to worse as McGuire knocked-on as he over-ran a ball and as the visitors moved the ball downfield it was Briscoe who went over and completed a fourteen minute hat-trick. Whiting goaled for 16-14 and it seemed that the game may be slipping away from us.

On fifty nerves were calmed...a little. A great offload saw Ali Lauiti'iti power over when it looked certain that the Hull defence must stop him. Sinfield added the extras for an eight point margin at 22-14.

On fifty-nine a nice Senior-Webb-Senior passing move (with the slightest hint of forward) saw Keith over for his second of the afternoon and Sinfields conversion gave is 28-14 and some breathing space.


Battering Ram

On sixty-one it was turning into a rout as a Leeds pass hit a Hull hand and went straight to Ryan Hall on the bounce. Hall broke and found Burrow in support who crossed under the sticks. Sinfield kicked a simple conversion for 34-14. Five minutes later and a brilliant Leuluai ball steal on the FC ten metres saw Bailey go with a whisker of the line before the ball was moved left and Sinfield put JJB through a gap to score next to the sticks. Sinfield extras gave is 40-14 and it was game over, two points to Leeds.

On seventy Delaney was provider with an over-the-top ball which saw the supporting McGuire cross under the sticks and Sinfields extras gave us 46-14 as the skipper went to the sidelines, his work down for the day.

Then, just like we'd done in the first half, we let FC off the hook with ten minutes of madness. Fortunately the game was already won.

On seventy-four Burrow knocked-on on his own twenty and Hall picked up the ball and went over unopposed. Whiting goaled for 46-20.

Four minutes later and Briscoe picked up his fourth after lazy Leeds defending and right at the death a very loose pass from Matt Diskin ended up woth Turner scoring in the corner. Hall converted the latter of these, after Whiting missed the former, for a final scoreline of 46-30.

There is no doubt that we are getting better after our really poorly spell. It was a big win over a side well above us and with lofty intentions, but it could and should have been much bigger. Our second half downturn co-incided with the departure of Sinfield and he does appear to be the common denominator when we play well. Big up for Rob Burrow and JJB who both had good games, Burrow as good as I have seen from him this season.

It's two points in the bag, but I suspect that next week will be a whole different 'kettle of fish'.
