Error Strewn Leeds Gift Gritty Robins
Posted by southstander on July 09 2010 - 22:35:46

Back in the Game

KR were looking for their first Superleague double of the Rhinos, but the Rhinos arrived at Craven Park with only a win on their minds as the push for the top four moves towards its climax.

Both sides were suffering from injuries and looked pretty even on paper, although the bookies made the Rhinos slight favourites.

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

Superleague XV - Round 21

Error Strewn Leeds Gift Gritty Robins

It wasn't too much of a surprise to find out that Ali and Burgess had both failed to make the seventeen, we tipped as much in the preview earlier in the day. Paul McShane got the nod in the starting line-up with Burrow being named on the bench allowing Sinfield and McGuire to start at half backs. The likelihood was that rotation between those four players would be manic.

KR were very thin in the centres with Ben Cockayne lining up alongside Warriors loan Academy player Josh Charnley. This was an area that the Rhinos would need to exploit to make headway as the packs looked pretty evenly matched. On the downside Alibert was in the middle, so anything could conceivably happen.

The sides exchanged early early mistakes but on five an Ablett break found McGuire who looked to go over in the corner but the video referee ruled double movement, despite the replay showing momentum carried Danny over the line.

On seven it was KR who got the scoreboard moving as Galea bulldozed his way over by ducking under the Lee Smith tackle. Dobson slotted over the extras and from looking like we were six ahead we found ourselves six down.

A superb Sinfield kick found touch and got us head and feed and as we worked close to the line Bailey seemed to be through a gap off a lovely Peacock pass but knocked on with the line begging. We weren't respecting the ball and KR were growing in confidence.


Scored 1, dropped 2
On twelve, Delaney held Cockayne up over the line for a brilliant try saving tackle.

On seventeen Lee Smith looked to have taken advantage of a McGuire last tackle kick which hit the post but as he caught the bouncing ball and touched it down Alibert ruled that the ball was dead in goal.

A minute later and KR forced a Leeds dropout. Moving the ball toward the Leeds sticks a nice interchange found Fisher to go through a big gap and score. Dobson added the extras and all of a sudden we were 0-12 down, and we'd only ourselves to blame.

On twenty-seven we again looked in, but Ablett lost the ball under the tackle on the KR line. What did we have to do to score.

Two minutes before the interval and Leeds committed rugby suicide. A missout pass from Sinfield didn't find McGuire as planned but bounced into the hands of Peter Fox who went fifty metres to score under the sticks. Dobson added the extras and despite three clear cut scoring chances we went into half time trailing by 0-18 to a KR side who were riding their luck.

We were in need of a massive second half improvement.

Despite KR dominating the opening ten minutes of the second half it was the Rhinos who opened the scoring when a Burrow grubber was touched down by Ryan Hall. Sinfield kicked the extra two and we were back in the ball game at 6-18.

Sixty-seven minutes in and the smart play from Dobson as he slotted over a drop goal from thirty-five metres. Now we needed three tries.

Ten minutes to go and a Burrow pass should have put Hall over unopposed in the corner, but he dropped it on the line. It wasn't to be our night. We'd blown too many gilt edged chances, and KR had taken those that they had eeked out.


100%er

On seventy-one it was all over when a great grubber was put through and Cockayne picked up the ball close to the line to go over and score. Dobson added the extras for 6-25, we were dead and buried.

On seventy-seven, Ryan Hall once again lost the ball over the line, simply not good enough.

This was the night that the Rhinos put their foot on the gas and there was nothing left in the tank. Two massive wins in two weeks sandwiched between two games that we lost to opposition we should have beaten. We're now paper thin in terms of squad and with Lee Smith and Rob Burrow both limping off we need to keep everything crossed that they are not both back on the long term injury list.

There is no denying the lads' effort, they put everything they had into this game but individual errors meant we missed out on tries that we'd normally have scored.

Well done the Robins, they outplayed us tonight and more than deserved the two points. The top four is now looking increasingly distant and it's going to be a tough last six games to the play-offs, starting against the Giants in a weeks time.
