Cas Collapse as Young Rhinos March On

Leeds could have been on the board twice in the early part of the game, first Lee Smith failed to ground the ball correctly after he had been released by the combination of Murrell and Gibson. Then after a break from Ablett released Jason Hart. The pass from the prop forward was put to ground by Iain Gordon with the line begging and another chance went west.

It was the visitors who got the scoreboard moving on 16 minutes, from a goal line drop out Shaun Hesketh made his way through some poor Rhinos defence before off loading to Shaun Lunt who evaded the challenge of Tansey to go in under the posts. Brambani converted for a 6-0 lead totally against the run of play.

It was the wake up call the Rhinos needed, three minutes later and offload from Dave Tootill found Ablett. Murrell was the recipient of the pass from Ablett, but took the ball standing still. He found a chink in the Tigers defence and went through the gap, he had Smith on the outside and the winger went in at the corner. Gibson was off target but the deficit was reduced to 2 points.

The Rhinos were now getting on top and this was emphasised on 26 minutes when Castleford needlessly conceded a penalty on the 5th tackle. From the resulting set the Rhinos were on the 10 metre line when Ablett switched the direction of play and found Gallagher and his inside ball released Jordan Tansey to go in the corner for try 19 of the season. The conversion from Gibson was superb and the Rhinos edged ahead 10-6.

Leeds wasted another opportunity on the half hour when a 3 on 1 overlap went to waste as Chris Buttery’s pass was ruled forward. Leeds though got the crucial break 2 minutes before half time. Hesketh lost possession on the Rhinos 40-metre line and from the scrum Lee Smith found the hole and went the distance despite a valiant chase from Chris Hepworth. Gibson tagged on the extras to take the Rhinos into the break 16-6 up.

Leeds made the game safe in the first ten minutes of the second half. On their first set of the second stanza, superb runs from Tansey and Williams created the position. Leeds were camped on the Tigers line and a reverse pass from Jamie I’Anson saw Dave Tootill crash over under the posts. Then on 47 minutes a high kick from Ablett caused confusion between Hepworth and Kain, the crashed into each other. The ball ended up in the hands of Jason Golden and he went over the line. Gibson converted both to take the Rhinos to a 28-6 lead.

Castleford to their credit did not throw in the towel, and after three consecutive sets got their reward on 53 minutes when the ball was moved right and Hesketh sent Mossop in at the corner. Brambani was off target with the conversion but it moved the visitors into double figures.

Leeds hit back two minutes later, after the Tigers conceded another silly penalty it gave the Rhinos field position. Ashley Gibson was held up close to the line, Jamie I’Anson tried to go from dummy half but was held just short before Gibson tried again and sneaked over for his 18th try of the season. He converted his own try to take the Rhinos into a 34-10 lead.

There was time for one more score from the Rhinos and it came with 7 minutes to go. The visitor’s defence was holding up manfully against constant Rhinos pressure, but a long pass from Tansey found Gibson and he had the simple take of putting Danny Williams in at the corner. The conversion was unsuccessful to take the final score to 38-10 to the Rhinos.

Castleford showed plenty of fight again, the Shauns, Hesketh and Lunt caused the Rhinos many a problem in the first half and Dominic Brambani was the pick of the backs.

For the Rhinos it was another sound performance, they overcame the loss of Murrell with a knee injury to keep the momentum going towards the play offs. John Gallagher made a successful return from injury; Jordan Tansey again revelled in the full back role. Lee Smith showed up well in his first game for a few weeks and Ashley Gibson impressed again. It was in the engine room where this game was won, Dave Tootill and Luke Stenchion stepping to the plate alongside Jason Hart playing out of position at prop. Carl Ablett took on the extra responsibility after the departure of Murrell and Chris Buttery showed his versatility.

The SouthStander.com Man of the Match went to Jason Golden. The skipper set the example tonight, strong running and defence the hallmark of his game tonight.

The Senior Academy are back in action next Wednesday night when the entertain Halifax in a friendly at Chandos Park. Kick off is at 7.30pm and entry is free.
