Chaseless Cas Crumble

The surprise in the South Stand at the inclusion of Ward at loose forward in an attacking, of a little light, looking Rhinos side was nothing compared to the dismay at the absence of Rangi Chase from the Castleford line-up. The one-man team were without their one-man, allegedly after some disciplinary misdemeanour earlier in the weekend.

There could surely only be one winner now, as our country cousins took to the field without their talisman. Couldn't there?

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

Superleague XVII - Round 18

24th June 2012

Chaseless Cas Crumble

The Rhinos dominated the opening ten minutes, a ten minutes where rookie referee Mr Roby was Castlefords friend. On six he ruled out a Ben Jones-Bishop try for foot in touch and two minutes later a second for the rampant Rhinos winger for a non-existant forward pass. Finally, on eleven minutes he couldn't find any reason to disallow the try that should have been Bens' hat-trick as he went over in the corner. Sinfield missed the goal from the touchline for 4-0. It was nothing less that we deserved.

On the quarter hour Burrow and Ward interchanged the ball nicely to mesmerise the Tigers defence before Burrow motored over for his first of the day. Sinfield kicked the goal for 10-0.

The pocket rocket scored again seven minutes later after Ryan Hall had taken a wayward pass above his head, fended off the winger, passed inside to the supporting McGuire who broke for the line and found Burrow over his right shoulder as the defence rounded on him. Burrow scored a walk-in and Sinfield extras made it 16-0 and the Rhinos were cruising.


6 goals
On twenty-five Ryan Hall had a try ruled out by Roby for a double-movement. He was closer to the play than me but it never looked anything like an arm lift, and on thirty-one the referee managed to penalise Leeds three times in quick succession to allow Jackson to break through a broken Leeds scrambling defence and score next to the sticks. Orr kicked the two and the Tigers supporters seemed relieved that they weren't going to be nilled.

The last action of the first half saw the Rhinos further extend their deserved lead when Hall, Ablett and Burrow were all involved in outrageous passing before Hall went over. Sinfield goaled for a half-time of 22-6. It was job well done, so far!

Leeds also got the first score of the second half to extend the lead to 28-6. A brilliant run by Hardaker from the half-way line saw him spinning out of four tackles before selflessly passing to Watkins to score a walk-in.

Five minutes later and a loose Castleford pass on the half-way line was kicked forward by Ben Jones-Bishop who then picked up the ball and crossed unopposed under the sticks. Sinfields boot made it 34-6 and we were coasting.

Another five minutes passed before we put the game totally beyond the visitors reach.

A Sinfield trade-mark cross-field kick was gathered by a high-flying Hall who touched down with ease. Sinfield made it 40-6 and it was time to shut up shop and coast home with the points.

We did neither and a sin-binning of Owen for the visitors on the hour mark sprang them into action, the type of action that will have left McDermott steaming!


Two More

Despite the sin-bin it was the Tigers who got the penalty and from itHuby pushed for the line and stretched out a hand to score by the posts. In the absence of Orr he converted his own for 40-12.

On sixty-five two more quick penalties conceeded by Leeds allowed the Tigers good field and Ferres went over for a simple try. Huby missed the conversion but it was 40-16 and the Tigers were starting to get some credibility out of a game where they should have been hammered.

The last scoring action of the game was also Castlefords as Leeds eased off the gas totally. With four minutes remaining Leeds opted not to tackle Ferres and he went over for a simple second. McGoldrick kicked the goal this time and the Tigers had salvaged some pride with a 40-22 defeat in a game where they had won the last twenty minutes by 16-0.

For sixty-minutes this was a much better performance but in the last twenty (ten of which the opposition were down to twelve) we were as awful in defence as we had been against the Wildcats. Perhaps three games in eight days had finally caught up with a lot of these players, but easing off the gas like that will cause us to loose plenty more games in the run in.

I thought that Burrow was magic today and we look to have a lot more options with Ward on the field. The standout was, however, Hardaker who looks to be making the full-back berth his own. I'd be picking him there over a fully fit Webb at the moment as he's much more dependable and offers great attacking options.

We'll hopefully not underestimate London next week as we head to the capital, that's just the kind of fixture that we've thrown away in the past.

Job done, up to sixth, but plenty still to work on.
