The Kids are Alright
Posted by southstander on March 21 2014 - 23:43:15

Hat-Trick

This was always a game that the Rhinos would win, the question was; by how many?

Big Mac was very confident, enough to rest a whole host of senior players and put his trust in the youngsters, bossed around by the re-united half-back pairing of McGuire and Burrow.

Mulhern and Mincella got the nod as Sinfield, Bailey, Peacock, Delaney, Moon and Briscoe were all rested. Surely nothing could go wrong.

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

Superleague XIX - Round 6

21st March 2014

The Kids are Alright

When Hardakers kick-off bounced in the Broncos in-goal and then found the dead-ball line you knew that the form book wasn't going to be easily upset.

The Rhinos used their early position and the gift of the ball deep in the Broncos half to open the scoring with just sixty seconds on the clock as a McGuire grubber was picked up by Singleton and walked over the line. Hardaker lined up the kick and sailed over the conversion.

On eight minutes Hall announced his return, and his new five year deal, with a corner touchdown off a Ward pass. Hardaker added the touchline goal and we were already 12-0 ahead. The Broncos were being blitzed.

On the quarter hour we made it 18-0 as a McGuire grubber brought Hall in off the line to read the bounce perfectly and get his second of the night as he touched down under the posts making the Hardaker goal a formality. The Broncos had barely touched the ball and offered little threat.


Sixteen Points
On twenty-seven Achurch, on from the bench, got in on the act as he bust over from ten metres to end a nice Rhinos passing move. Zak was accurate with the boot again and we had a 24-0 lead.

Two tries in the last three minutes of the half gave the Rhinos a deserved 34-0 half time lead. A Burrow high kick to the left wing was plucked from the air by a soaring Hall and touched down for his first half hat-trick, Hardaker missed the tough touchline conversion but was more accurate on the hooter after Watkins and Jones-Bishop combined for the try of the night over an eighty metre break down the left wing.

The Broncos had little to offer except a possible try ruled out by the video referee thanks to an excellent last tackle by Hardaker. The Rhinos were on target for a big win and would be sitting top of the Superleague at the end of the game, at least until Saints and Castleford play their Round 6 games on Sunday.

It took just two minutes of the second half for Leeds to re-open their account as Hardaker threw the dummy and went over, untouched, from five metres. He converted his own try to bring up the forty.

On fifty the Broncos broke their duck as Caton-Brown crossed the whitewash after a nice cross-field passing move. Drinkwater goaled to at least avoid the ignominy of a nilling.

A rosy patch for the visitors threatened further points but all hope was snuffed out on fifty-seven when Watkins went through a gap after extreme pressure to score. Hardaker missed the goal but it was 44-6 to the Rhinos.

Leeds still had two tries in them.


Another Two

On sixty-nine Jones-Bishop benefitted from the Rhinos giving the ball some air as they moved from left to right as he scored in the corner. Hardaker missed the kick again, just six from nine on the night.

With a minute left to the hooter the skipper for the night, Rob Burrow, showed his twinkle-toes as he bemused a tired Broncos defence to zig-zag his way to the line to cross.. He converted his own try to give us a comprehensive final scoreline of 54-6.

The bookies had given the visitors a forty-four point start, and they weren't far away as we ran in a forty-eight point win. We do have a sensational back line and they had a lot of fun tonight, even without Moon and Briscoe. I'm sure that with the full regular first team it would have been a far higher winning margin, but it was the right decision to give them a rest ahead of a long season.

Next Friday at Saints is a far more important game, and no doubt all the big-guns will be back for that one.

A decent enough win...a good day at the office.
