Rhinos Euthanise Poorly Wildcats
Posted by southstander on April 06 2014 - 16:18:28

Mercurial

Ryan Bailey was welcomed back from the wilderness as the Rhinos visited Belle Vue to take on the Rhinos old boys.

In an all-Superleague Challenge Cup fixture the Rhinos would have expected a 'dreadnought' performance from the homeside but over the eighty minutes they put up little resistance and Leeds had to barely break into a sweat.

It was an easy progress for Leeds who leave their near neighbours to concentrate on their main goal for the season, maintaining their Superleague status for 2015.

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

Rhinos Euthanise Poorly Wildcats

With the scoreboard still pointless after eighteen minutes you could be forgiven for thinking that it had been a close game, but it was far from it. The Rhinos had commanded the opening but had simply failed to ground the ball in their opponents try area. On ten Briscoe simply had to collect a Burrow grubber to walk in the opener but thanks to a bad bounce knocked-on, a couple of minutes later and Watkins threw the ball to touch when Briscoe was again unmarked, and on eighteen an exciting passing move ended when Zak Hardaker was tackled on the line. It was just a matter of time before the deadlick was broken.

And on eighteen minutes it was thanks to a brilliant thirty metre solo darting run from Rob Burrow who made his skippers conversion a simple one for 6-0.

It was the first trickle, but the dam burst was on the cards and it started in earnest on twenty-four when a good Peacock drive saw him offload to Sinfield who passed 'round the corner' for Ablett to walk in. Two minutes later and a great kick downfield was chased by Hall who threw a boot at the ball kicking it into the defender and enabling Leeds to collect the loose ball, with an inside pass to McGuire to step twice and score by the uprights. Sinfield kicked both conversion for 18-0 and Wakefield simply couldn't get their hands on the ball.


8 Goals
On the half hour Leeds made 22-0 when after Peacock had gone close his offload to Burrow allowed the mid-field general to spin a pass to the left wing where Hall didn't need asking twice to get a try on his 200th Leeds appearance. Sinfield missed his first kick of the afternoon but with total Rhinos dominance it didn't really matter.

On thirty-four we made it twenty-six points in eighteen minutes as Ablett took advantage of a short Sinfield pass to crash over from close on the last tackle.

It was now a matter of how many we'd score, rather than whether we'd be in the hat for the fifth round, and the Wakefield fans around me were already fearing the worst.

They were given some hope with four minutes of the half remaining when a couple of defensive slips by the Rhinos allowed Godinet to score under the sticks. Sammut converted for 26-6 but it would be the home sides only points of the afternoon as the Rhinos treated the rest of the game as a training run-out against a side more resembling a National Leagues team than a Superleague outfit.

As the half-time hooter warmed up the Rhinos scored their sixth try of the half after Ablett broke down the middle and then found Hall in support and space to go forty metres and score under the sticks. Sinfield extras gave us a most satisfactory half time score of 32-6 but with a few missed changes an a couple of missed kicks, it could easily have been fifty.

Leeds were back scoring within five minutes of the restart, now with a strong wind blowing at their backs.

The fist try-scorer of the second half was Mitch Achurch who finished off a superb passing move by breaking the line and going over from twenty metres. Five minutes later and it was another substitute, Liam Sutcliffe's turn to score, off a Sinfield pass to run unopposed through a massive gap and twenty metres to the line. Sinfeld converted both to extend the lead to 44-6 and any hope of a second half Wildcats fightback was banished.

Leeds now seemed to ease off, but would still score another three tries before the final hooter, all within the last seven minutes.


2 on 200

On seventy-three Briscoe intercepted a loose Wakefield pass some forty metres from the line but shrugged off the attempted tackles. On seventy-five Rob Burrow stepped out of two tackles from thirty metres to jink his way to the line and with just over a minute remaining a Sinfield grubber was easily collected and touched down by Moon to round off the afternoons scoring. Sinfield goaled two from the last three to take his tally for the afternoon to eight, and the Rhinos had a simple 60-6 win.

The Rhinos played well, with some exciting and inventive moves, but Wakefield were quite simply dreadful. Leeds eased off in the middle of the second half, and with the missed chances in the opening twenty minutes the home side could have easily been looking down the barrell of an eighty point loss. From a Superleague side that simply isn't good enough.

The hat, Murphy and Schofield were unkind to us in the fifth round draw setting up a game against St Helens, mercifully at home, in a game which is almost certain to be televised. Now that will be tougher.

Who do we play next week? Oh yes, Wakefield again...now that should be fun!
