Man-of-the-Match
By Matthew Horton

The Rhinos travelled to the Jungle to take on the Tigers in this Senior Academy First Division match, both teams went into the game having only lost one match all season so something had to give.

The Rhinos overcame the loss of John Gallagher after only three minutes to record a hard fought victory over a determined home side.

We bring you all the action.

Rhinos Crush Cas

Leeds began the first half playing up the slope and attacking the Railway End and scored from their very first set of the match. On the last tackle Tim Robinson spilled a high kick from Ablett and John Gallagher was on hand to collect and go in at the corner. Gibson was off target but the Rhinos had the perfect start. The Tigers hit back, a desperate tackle from Tansey stopped Lunt before the full back pounced on Brambani and stole the ball in a one on one tackle. The Rhinos though then lost John Gallagher to what looked like an arm injury and the halfback was to play no further part in the game.

This spurred the Rhinos on and they scored again after 9 minutes, from their first penalty of the game a set move involving Burgess, Ablett (twice) and Tansey saw the full back find Jason Golden on the inside and the skipper went over the line. Gibson converted to stretch the lead to 10. From the next set the Rhinos scored again, Luke Burgess running out wide flipped a superb pass to Tansey, he tried to dance round his opposite number Kain but Dave Tootill was on hand to take the pass and get over the line. Gibson again converted to take the Rhinos 16-0 ahead after 11 minutes.

Castleford struck back, on the last tackle Chris Buttery could not control a kick from Kain and a quick play the ball gave the home side numbers on the left hand side and Bravo sliced through the Leeds defence to go over. Brambani converted and the Tigers were back at 16-6. Leeds almost hit back, Ablett with the break but his final pass to Williams was put to ground under pressure from Lunt.

The Rhinos struck from their second penalty of the night on 26 minutes. As with the Golden try, the run around from Ablett and Burgess found Tansey and his long pass found Buttery and he had the simple task of putting Danny Williams in at the corner. Gibson was off target but it put the Rhinos in a strong position at 20-6.

Castleford has the last say in the first half on 31 minutes, after back to back penalties the home side built the pressure on the Rhinos line and after Gordon shot the defensive line a pass from Huby was batted down by the substitute and Huby recovered to squeeze in at the corner. The conversion from Brambani was wide and it took us in to half time with a 10-point cushion for the Rhinos.

The Rhinos got the perfect start to the second half to kill the game off, again on their opening set of the half a short side move started by Murrell saw the stand offs pass find Gibson and he had the simple task of putting Francis Cummins in at the corner. The conversion from Gibson, right on the sideline, sailed between the uprights to stretch the lead to 16. Three minutes later the Rhinos were in again, a super break from Danny Williams took the Rhinos deep into the Tigers half, a quick play the ball allowed Tansey to scoot from dummy half, he found Ablett on his outside and Chris Buttery run a superb angle to take the pass and go over. Gibson was off target but it stretched the Rhinos lead to 30-10.

Things got better for the Rhinos as they went in for their third try in the opening seven minutes of the half. Tansey this time was hauled down short of the Tigers line after a mazy run, before his quick play the ball and Gordon found Tootill with men on the outside but the second rower backed himself to crash over the line. Gibson converted and the fork was out at 36-10.

Credit to the Tigers, they never gave up and were rewarded on 62 minutes. Branbani creating the space for Michael Knowles and the he drew Cummins to put Poskitt in at the corner. Four minutes later and the home side were in again, on the back of another penalty a long ball from Brambani found Damien Reid and he stood Ashley Gibson up with some superb footwork to touch down in the corner. Brambani was off target with both conversion but the Tigers reduced the deficit to 36-18.

The Rhinos, despite what could only be described as a patchy second half performance, had the last word on 74 minutes. A barnstorming run from Dave Tootill set up the position and his quick play the ball gave Jamie I’Anson the chance to scoot from dummy half and he stretched out to touch down. Jordan Tansey took over the kicking duties and was successful to take the final score to 42-18.

Fair play to the home side, under the guidance of “Viva” Brad Davis for the first time tonight they were determined to defend their home record. Alex Rowe, Damien Reid and Caldon Bravo were the stand out men for the Tigers. For the Rhinos, Jordan Tansey seems to have found himself a home at full back. The Lukes, Stenchion and Burgess, were awesome on defence and Dave Tootill again showed what a big future he has in front of him. The SouthStander.com man of the match though went to Jason Golden, he put the full 80 minutes in tonight and the skipper set the example to his teammates.

The Rhinos are back in action next Thursday night when they entertain Featherstone Rovers. The venue for this game is yet to be confirmed, check the site and message board for details.
