Youngsters Miss Out on Silverware
Posted by southstander on February 06 2006 - 08:06:36

10 Point Haul
By Matthew Horton

Another young Rhinos side, boosted by the return of Nathan McAvoy and Ashley Gibson, travelled south of the river to try and regain the Lazenby Cup that was lost in disappointing circumstances twelve months previously.

In front of a poor crowd on a bitterly cold day at South Leeds Stadium it was the home side who came out on top.

We bring you all the action......

Youngsters Miss Out on Silverware

It was the Rhinos, with the wind at their back in the first half, who got on the board first. A Mark Moxon pass was spilled by Lee Williamson into the hands of Jordan Tansey and he went in from 60 meters without a finger being laid on him, Gibson had the easy task of converting from right in front to give the Rhinos an early 6-0 lead.

The Hawks hit back on 11 minutes, after the impressive Jermaine Wray had spilt the Rhinos defence with superb run up field to give the Hawks field position deep in the Rhinos 20. Ex-Rhino David Gibbons providing a cut out ball that found the hands of Ian Brown to dive over in near the corner. Wray converted to bring the scores level.

The home side took the initiative on 23 minutes, on the last tackle Ian Brown looked to be heading into touch but popped the pass out to Danny Dixon. He put in a cross field kick, it bounced in the in-goal, was missed by Gibson and Gareth Naylor who were competing for the ball and Calvin Watson, once with the Rhinos, was on hand to touch down. Wray was off target with the conversion attempt but the Hawks were 10-6 in front.

The Hawks, despite playing into the wind, were getting on top of the Rhinos. A good kicking game from the halfbacks giving the Hawks plenty of good field position and it was from a kick that Peter Fox was forced to run over his own dead ball line that gave the Hawks another opportunity on 35 minutes. George Rayner making the break through some poor Rhinos defence and he had options either side before giving substitute Danny Cook and easy run in. Wray sliced his conversion attempt to leave the Hawks 14-6 in front.

To their credit, the Rhinos never gave up and struck right on half time. Liam Halliday, Carl Ablett and Jordan Tansey creating the space for Michael Brown to go in at the corner. Gibson's conversion was unsuccessful and the Rhinos went into half time 14-10 down.

The Rhinos were now playing into the wind, after Ian Brown has knocked on in the act of scoring, a bit of biffo between Jamie I'Anson and Chris Redfearn resulted in both players being sent to the Sin Bin and livened the crowd up. It was the Hawks though who struck next on 49 minutes, Moxon with the break and Ashley Gibson was left 3 on 1 and the scrum half found Danny Cook on his inside and he went in for his second try of the afternoon. Wary converted to give the Hawks a 20-10 lead.

The Rhinos hit back six minutes later, after a Hunslet error Leeds pounded the Hawks line. Before Jamie I'Anson, just back on the field, scooted from dummy half and popped a superb pass round the corner for Nathan McAvoy to get his third try of pre-season. Gibson converted to bring the Rhinos to within 4 points.

Hunslet grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck with two quick tries, first on 62 minutes Ian Brown intercepted a pass by Jamie I'Anson and raced in from 40 metres. Wray converting. The four minutes later on the back of Moxon's 40-20 the Hawks were in again. A short side move allowing Danny Dixon to force his way over in at the corner. Wary this time was wide with the conversion but the Hawks had the game in the bag at 30-16.

Again the Rhinos never gave up and on 70 minutes got their fourth try of the afternoon when Ashley Gibson found a chink in the Hawks defence from a scrum and raced 60 meters to touch down by the side of the posts. Gibson converted his own try to bring the Rhinos back to within 8 points of the Hawks.

But the Rhinos couldn't keep the roll on and it was the Hawks who again made the game safe with 7 minutes to go, a cross field kick was dropped by Peter Fox and although it went backwards Luke Burgess was still feeling the effect of an earlier challenge and Chris Redfearn got their first to hack the ball over the line and touch down. Wray's conversion attempt hit the post and the Hawks retained the Lazenby Cup with a 34-22 victory.

Full credit to the home side, they were well worth their victory today. The halfbacks Gibbons and Moxon drove their side forward at all time and Jermaine Wray was industrious from dummy half. For the Rhinos Jamie I'Anson impressed after coming on from the bench and Ashley Gibson tried hard to create. Nathan McAvoy ended up at loose forward for part of the game and was in the right place at the right time to take his try, but coach Graeme Hallas has work to do with the 21's players before the first game against Huddersfield next Sunday.

So that's pre-season, lets bring on the real deal.
