Rhinos Sink Hull for Cup Progress
Posted by southstander on April 17 2010 - 16:50:19

Four-try Hero

Just six days after a confident 46-30 win over the Airlie Birds at Headingley, the Rhinos and their fans made the sixty-five mile journey to the KC Stadium for the rematch in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup.

The Rhinos had a couple of differences but Agar rang the changes for Hull with Tickle, Fitzgibbon and Horne all back in a much changed seventeen, but surprisingly Sean Long failed a late fitness test.

It promised to be a cracker as the nation settled down in their armchairs to watch it on the BBC, and we all started biting our nails.

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

Rhinos Sink Hull for Cup Progress

Bluey sprang his surprise with the inclusion of Jamie Peacock in the seventeen after he'd been ruled out earlier in the week, the SouthStander.com rumours earlier in the week were true after all. Ali Lauiti'iti dropped out of last weeks team with an unspecified injury and Diskin replaced Buderus in the starting line-up.

Steve 'Saint' Ganson also surprised us by injuring himself during the warm up, and we were delayed by fifteen minutes while Richard Silverwood came out of the video referee booth and pulled on his boots and issued his pre-match instructions.

On four minutes the Rhinos took the early initiative with a great effort which looked like Lee Smith had gone over in the corner. Silverwood went to the video referee who ruled that Lee put his foot in touch in the act of scoring. It was a hairline decision.

On eight minutes a great little grubber was put through by Manu and collected and scored in the corner by last weeks nemesis Tom Briscoe. Tickle missed the extras from the touchline, 0-4.

On twelve minutes the Rhinos were on the board. A third set on the Hull line the second wipe-down after an attempted Hull interception, and Senior picked up the loose ball, passed inside to Ablett who strode over. Sinfield added the extras and we were in the lead at 6-4.


Great Kicking
Seventeen minutes in and McGuire was hit off the ball on the Hull forty. Sinfield, cool headed, kicked the two point penalty and double the lead to 8-4.

On nineteen a Rhinos farce let Hull in again. Briscoes pass went to Ablett who dropped the ball backwards towards his own line and Tansey picked up the bouncing ball and ran it in for the score. Once again Steve 'Saint' Ganson was asked to make the video decision and gave the try. Tickle managed the conversion and the lead see-sawed back to the home side at 8-10.

Twenty-five minutes and it was Leeds turn to score. Sinfield had kicked a penalty to half way and on the second play Ablett did brilliantly to break the line and found Webb supporting inside to go the last twenty and score. Sinfield goaled for 14-10.

Four minutes later and Leeds muscled over again, this time it was Kirke the battering ram off a delayed Burrow pass to push Tansey out of the way to ground the ball. Sinfield kicked the extras and there was a little daylight at 20-10.

Thirty-three and the game swung well and truly in our favour. A poor pass from Tansey was knocked on by Hall into the hands of Burrow. Rob found Senior who then passed out to Hall to beat the tackler and score in the corner. Sinfield hit the upright but with the score at 24-10 there was some daylight.

On thirty-eight the Rhinos scored a top drawer try. Webb kept the ball alive with an offload when it looked like he was going into touch. The offload found Senior then Ablett, Burrow, and Webb combined to put Hall over for his second of the afternoon. Sinfield goaled for 30-10. Brilliant.

It had been a great half, we just needed to keep it going, and not nod off like last week.

With the second half five minutes old the Rhinos scored on their first attack after withstanding an early Hull onslaught. A great Burrow mis-out pass found Hall free to cross in the corner for a twelve minute hat-trick. Sinfield goaled brilliantly from the corner and we were 36-10 ahead and almost in the fifth round hat.

On fifty-four Silverwood dropped a clanger, penalising Leeds for a ball steal when the Hull player had tried to offload. Leeds scrambled in defence and Burrow ended up giving another penalty and with all the pressure Whiting went over in the corner on the overlap. Fitzgibbon missed the extras for 36-14.


Great Game

On the hour mark, Burrow put in a grubber which was picked up by an unmarked Webb to walk under the sticks for Leeds seventh try of the afternoon. Sinfield kicked the goal for 42-14 and the little Hull fightback was all over and the game was won.

On sixty-five Lauaki smacked Burrow in the face, Rob retaliated and was sent to the bin by Silverwood. Somehow Lauaki stayed on and Hull got the penalty. One minute later and Manu fed Turner for him to cross as the Rhinos looked to tire. Fitzgibbon kicked the goal for 42-20 and we were fourteen points short of last weeks aggregate with fifteen minutes left.

Nine minutes left on the clock and Hall made it four for the afternoon. A chip through from Whiting went straight into Ryans hands on his own ten metres and he went the length of the pitch to score under the posts. Sinfield kicked the two for 48-20.

With five minutes to go Whiting went over on the overlap to score in the corner. Fitzgibbon missed a tough conversion but Hull were up to half Leeds points at 48-24.

This was probably the best Rhinos performance of the season, we'd saved our best for the Cup and for the first time in two years we are through to the next round. There were plenty of great performances with the plaudits going to Rob Burrow, Kevin Sinfield, Carl Ablett, Ian Kirke and of course the free-scoring Ryan Hall. If ever there was a platform for the season this was it. Next up, Saints at Knowsley Road after waiting for the fifth round draw tomorrow.
