Humiliated
Posted by southstander on April 09 2011 - 20:56:26

Brace
We know that we've got a few problems this season, the coach and even the lads admit it. We've been our own worst enemy, letting games that we should have won slip from our grasp.

But this afternoon it was our chance to get a much needed confidence boosting win against one of Superleague XVI's whipping boys. Away at Craven Park, surely even we couldn't mess this one up!

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

Superleague XVI - Round 9

9th April 2011

Humiliated

Kylie Leuluai was absent but Lee Smith was back in the Rhinos seventeen for this unusual SKY enforced saturday afternoon kick-off. As the rest of the country was focussed on the Grand National we were looking for a Rhinos win to lift us to fifth in Superleague after Wigan slipped up at home to the Dragons last night. The good news...we were back in the pink, the bad...Halibut was in charge.

It took Lee Smith just over three minutes to celebrate his return to the side. A superb miss-out pass from Sinfield found Smith who in turn sent Watkins down the right wing before slipping the ball back inside for the supporting Smith to dive over. Sinfield slip the conversion in front of the posts but four-nil was a good start.

Thirteen minutes on the clock and the Rhinos managed to complete a set of six. On the last Sinfield chipped over the cross to the right corner and Watkins collected the ball in a lot of space and walked over to score. Sinny kicked brilliantly from the touchline for 10-0.

On eighteen Leeds 'expansive' play was once again at fault. Senior spilled the ball ten out from our line while trying to get it to Watkins and two tackles later Vella went over and grounded the ball despite three Leeds defenders efforts. Murrell kicked the extras for 10-6.

On twenty Blake Green went close after a great step. A fast play the ball and the ball was moved left for Welham to cross with no opposition. He improved the angle and Murrell converted to put KR into the lead at 10-12.


100%er
Twenty nine on the clock and Green was again the provider after breaking a tackle before putting Matt Cook over next to the sticks. Murrell got the extras and we'd turned a ten point lead into an eight point deficit in the space of just ten minutes. Errors were hurting us again. a below average opposition were being made to look half-decent.

Thirty-five and Leeds opened up and let KR in again. Cockayne made a break through the line and then put in what looked like a forward pass to Scott Murrell who went thirty to score. He added the extra two and Leeds were visibly imploding. We were playing like it was the last fifteen against Wigan.

As we went into the sheds trailing by fourteen it felt like it was game, and possibly season, over.

The second half was just a minute old when it got worse. KR returned Sinfields kick with interest and after moving the ball right Colbon went over in the corner. Murrell missed the conversion but now it was 10-28.

As the clock clicked towards fifty the Rhinos got the benefit of a penalty, thirty from the KR line. A Webb long pass bounced into Ryan Halls arms on the wing and he crossed in the corner. Sinfield converted again from the touchline and there was a small amout of hope. We could string a decent passage of play together after all. Now 16-28.

On the hour the home side benefitted from another forward pass which Alibert missed. Latus was the beneficiary, again over in the corner. Murrell missed the extras but the home side had what looked like an unassailable lead at 16-32.

On sixty-five the Rhinos turned Harlem Globetrotters, keeping the ball alive. After a good Bailey drive Webb put a quick inside pass for McShane to cross. Sinfield converted in off the post to reduce the arrears to ten points.

On seventy-five KR killed the game when Galea went over from twenty against pathetic Rhinos defence. Murrell goaled for 22-38, an embarrassment.


Scorer

A seventy-eighth minute sensational Watkins kick through and collect to score under the posts was mere consolation. Sinfield kicked the extras for 28-38.

Even that great last gasp try from Watkins couldn't hide the fact that this was yet another shocking performance against a Hull KR side who haven't been able to buy a win all season. There is something going seriously wrong with our beloved Leeds and it looks like it will take more than just returning players to fix it.

And who do we play next week? It's only the league leaders!
