Rhinos Crush Crusaders
Posted by southstander on April 25 2011 - 18:44:31

Brace
A jubilant Rhinos returned home to Headingley after a confidence boosting win at Odsal last week.

Today the opposition was the Crusaders, coached by Iestyn Harris and fresh from a win over the league leaders last friday. The Rhinos ace in the deck was the return of Danny McGuire, met with stadium wide applause as it was announced.

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

Superleague XVI - Round 12

Rhinos Crush Crusaders

George Elliot got a Rhinos debut on the wing in the place of the injured Kallum Watkins. Elliot, the fifty-first Rhinos Academy graduate to get a first team cap followed some illustrious names into a blue and amber jersey.

The only major talking point of the opening twenty-five minutes was a full-on punch-up between Richrd Moore and Brent Webb, after Moore had thrown a punch in the tackle. Referee Child just gave the two a talking too, for a far bigger fight than the one which saw Bailey and O'Donnell sent off a fortninght ago. Leeds had taken the game to the visitors but couldn't get over the line.

On twenty-four it looked like Sammut had gone over from dummy half but referee Child ruled that he was short and his protestations gave Leeds a penalty.

On twenty-nine the prodigal son was the provider when he fed Delaney on the Rhinos twenty from the foot of the scrum. Delaney found a gap and went eighty to score in the corner. Sinfield kicked brilliantly from the touchline for six-nil, it was with the run of play and nothing less than we deserved.


Back
Three minutes later and the Rhinos benefitted from the Crusaders kicking-off out on the full. They used the penalty to get good position and after using two tackles a Burrow short ball put Ablett over to score a simple try. Sinfield goaled again for 12-0.

Right on half-time the Rhinos extended the lead to eighteen.

Sinfield decided to run the ball on a 30m penalty and Leeds used the tackles to move the ball both ways before fast hands from McShane, McGuire and Ablett put Senior over to score in the left corner.

Sinfield kicked the ball brilliantly from the touchline and we took a comfortable lead into the sheds. It had been a good first half, well a good last ten minutes of the second half. Plenty to build on.

Five minutes into the second half and we extended the lead. A brilliant run from Burrow saw him find Hall in support twenty out but the winger was hauled down short. A quick play-the-ball and Burrow went blindside to score in the corner. Sinfield again goaled for 24-0, we were cruising.

The referee Child decided that he ought to let the Crudasers back into it. A great Crusaders break saw a superb Webb chase and tackle about five out. Despite the player having been clearly tackled Child allowed him to get to his feet and pass to Tansey who walked over unopposed to score. The Southstand was still going bonkers when Schifcofske missed the conversion attempt.

On sixty-seven Child missed a clear Leeds penalty as Burrows leg was lifted in the tackle. Burrow played the ball and Buderus put in a pass which was intercepted by the massively offside Witt who then went ninety-five metres to score and be awarded the try. Schifcofske kicked the goal and the margin was down to 24-10 and the visitors were right back in it.

On seventy-three the Wigan nightmares came flooding back as Sinfield threw a loose pass which was intercepted by Hanbury to go seventy to score under the sticks. The conversion was kicked for 24-16.


Great Kicks

Fortunately Leeds then managed to dig deep and tighten up the defence.

On seventy-eight Senior crossed in the corner off a Webb pass with Sinfield failing to kick the conversion. And on eighty Webb was again the provider, this time for Kylie Leuluai to walk through an exhausted Crusaders defence to score. Sinfield converted that one to give us a 34-16 win.

In the end the scoreline flattered the visitors and two of their tries had clear assists from Child. Leeds were their own worst enemy in failing to complete the sets and there was still a bag full of unforced handling errors. It was good to see Danny back and we looked to have more shape and options with him on the field.

It's better, but there is still plenty of room for further improvement.

In relation to James Child, I'm with Kath Hetherington...and it's not very often that you'll hear me say that!
