Last Gasp Winner Gets Seventh
Posted by southstander on May 01 2010 - 21:43:21

Hat-trick

The rugby league family descended on Edinburgh for the Murrayfield Magic weekend.

As the Rhinos and Wildcats took to the field we'd already been treated to seeing the Bulls humiliated by the Crusaders, the Harlequins beating the Cod'eads, and the Wolves slaughtering the Reds.

Now it was our turn to put on a show.

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

Murrayfield Magic

Last Gasp Winner Gets Seventh

It was a Rhinos side without Leuluai and Ali Lauiti'iti, two of our battering rams, and one of them one of our biggest play-makers were missing from a Rhinos side to take on the team that we lost to earlier in the season. There was a chance of a shot at seventh place for the Rhinos, and with KR having to play Saints tomorrow it was a seventh we could keep, if we could get there tonight.

Four minutes in and it looked like we had the lead. Burrow went across field and ducked under a tackle to score but Alibert went to the video referee and ruled out the try due to a Kirke shepherd. NO TRY.

Two minutes later and Mr Alibert had no reason to ask the video referee as Jeffries took full advantage of a penalty conceeded by Keith Senior to score, barging past Bailey and diving way over. Jeffries added the extras for 0-6. Not the start that we wanted.

On thirteen it got worse. A cross-field kick from Jeffries found Burrow looking for respite on the wing. Blanch picked it off Robs head and went behind the sticks to make the Jeffries conversion a formality. We were 0-12 down and this wasn't in the script.

With twenty minutes on the clock we finally got on the board after being awarded two quick penalties deep in Wailcats territory. Leeds moved the ball left down the line and Senior put Hall over in the corner. Sinfield missed the extras.


Hot & Cold
On twenty-five we were stepping up a gear. Kirke bust a tackle and found Hall on the wing who lobbed one inside which Webb caught well and crossed. Sinfield added the extras and we were back within two at 10-12.

On twenty-nine the 'Cats were back over as Johnson span away from Hall and McGuire to drop over the line. Jeffries added the two to give Wakefield an 18-10 lead.

On thirty-four disaster as McGuires chat turned a scrum into a penalty from which Blanch went over off a Murphy flash pass to score in the corner. Jeffries slotted the conversion wide but at 22-10 he wasn't too bothered.

Sinfield kicked the ball dead from the kick-off. The Wildcats tapped it and two plays later Leo-Latu went thirty metres to score under the sticks. Jeffries goaled for 28-10. Now we were up against it.

With a second on the clock before the half-time hooter Leeds moved the ball left and Senior once again fed Ryan Hall to cross in the corner, taking a knock in the process. Sinfield goaled superbly from the touchline to send the sides into the Murrayfield dressing rooms at 16-28, there was still a massive amount for us to do.

Game of the day...so far, definitely. If only we could tighten up our defence.

On forty-six Leeds got the second half opener with a try from nowhere when Clarkson spun over the line for his debut Leeds try with four tacklers attached to ground. Sinfield kicked the extras and the margin was down to six at 22-28.

On fifty-two Diskin stole the ball on the Leeds forty and Jeffries kicked the two.

On sixty-two the light at the end of the tunnel got a lot brighter when a great step by McGuire cleared speace for him to put Ryan Hall over for his hat-trick. Sinfield converted from the touchline to narrow the margin to 28-30. We were tight back in it and the Wildcats were visibly tiring.


Winner

On sixty-seven it looked like the Wildcats might have got another but a high kick was knocked on by George and the try ruled out.

On seventy Leeds should have been in but Sinfield passed into his dummy runner with the line beckoning.

With four minutes left on the clock the Rhinos hit thr front for the first time in the game. McGuire, Senior and Webb all combined brilliantly to put Buderus over the line to ground. Sinfield slotted over the extras for 34-30 and as the Wildcats re-started there were just 130 seconds left on the clock. The short kick-off ended up with the Wildcats penalised for offside and the Rhinos ran the clock down to secure a four point win.

This wasn't vintage Leeds, but it was a classic game. At times our defence was woeful, really dreadful, but on attack we were brilliant at times. If we could bolster up a bit we could be a pretty decent team.

Special mention to Ambler, Clarkson and Kirke who are often unsung. All three of them had great games today and Clarksons try was a belter, really well earned.

What we can take out of this is that we showed spirit, and that we kept going to the end. We are now up to seventh, is this the start of the Rhinos charge?
