Rampant Rhinos Run Riot
Posted by southstander on March 25 2006 - 20:05:22

Four Great Tries

The Rhinos army rolled into the Stoop to see their side take on a Harlequins side decimated by injury and one which had not won at home yet in 2006.

Jamie Peacock was back in the Rhinos line up after missing out last week through the knock he took in Perpignan. The bookies had given the 'Quins a twenty-four point start, and everyone but the most optimistic of home supporters could only see one outcome from tonight encounter.

That said, we'd lost in London before, when the odds were in our favour.

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

Rampant Rhinos Run Riot

Chev Walker failed a late fitness test giving Ian Kirke his deserved first start, with Gareth Ellis pushed out into the centres. The Rhinos gave an outing to the Blue & Silver against the unfamiliar Harlequins quarters. London were without seven first choices, most notably playmaker McLinden, and their makeshift side were up against it from the outset.

Leeds forced a goal line dropout early on, but couldn't capitalise. It actually took ten minutes for Leeds to register the first try of the game. Peacock offloaded on the half way line an Mathers broke the line drawing thr full-back Dorn before putting McGuire free to run the last twenty to score under the sticks. Sinfield goaled an easy conversion for six-nil.

Three minutes later and McGuire was over again, this time after a Burrow break from half-way. Once again he was under the sticks, and once again Sinfield converted. It was now twelve-nil and the 'Quins heads were already looking downwards.

On twenty-five the Rhinos scored their best so far. Burrow found McGuire on half-way who broke the line and made it to twenty-five before passing to Smith. Lee went down the wing and drew the tacklers before passig inside allowing Rob Burrow a walk-in. Sinfield goaled for 18-0.

Two minutes later and the Rhinos returned the kick-off for another try. Ali found Lee Smith who went down the wing, stepped inside and drew the tackler before flinging the ball inside to McGuire allowing him to complete a seventeen minute hat-trick. Sinfield converted another easy one for 24-0.

The game was already won.


Into Everything

The Rhinos then registered their third try in six minutes when a McGuire pass allowed Mathers to draw two tacklers before finding Lee Smith who broke down field and passed inside to Danny McGuire for his fourth of the game. Sinfield added the two for 30-0.

This was threatening to be a total rout.

On thirty-four, McGuire turned provider for Willie Poching to go through through a gap and dive over from ten metres. Burrow converted as Sinny was off the field. Service as normal and 36-0 to Leeds.

The hooter brought some respite for the Broncos, but those who travelled from Leeds were delighted by the Rhinos performance so far and were looking forward to a try-filled second half.

Leeds made a couple of handling errors early in the second half to give the Harlequins some optimism of saving face. With eight minutes on the second half clock it looked like Bradley-Qalilawa was over in the corner but the video referee ruled out the score for foot in touch.

On fifty-two, the Rhinos benefitted from a Dorn stray pass as Smith intercepted brilliantly and went under the sticks from fifty metres out. Sinfield added the extras for 42-0.


Nine from Nine
On sixty-nine a Dorn forward pass gave Leeds head and feed in the 'Quins ten. Four tackles later and Lauiti'iti's power saw him stretch over for Leeds eighth try of the game. Sinfield converted from the touchline for 48-0.

Two minutes later and Senior almost made the line with a great break down the left. A fast play and Sinfield went close before Diskin put Feather through a gap to score next to the posts. Sinfield continued his 100% record for 54-0, the 'Quins were getting a real hammering.

On seventy-five Leeds did the unthinkable and pushed in a scrum to win against the head. Burrow found McGuire who gave a short pass to Senior to cross. Sinfield made it nine from nine for 60-0.

On seventy-eight, Senior stopped Dorn on the Leeds line as he looked for consolation. Senior held on too long and ended p in the bin. The Harlequins couldn't make the posession count and it meant a lot to the players and the fans to keep a clean sheet. This was the biggest home defeat for the London club in their history...well done Leeds.

Lets not overplay this, the Harlequins are a dreadful side, with very little to offer Superleague XI. On the other hand, Leeds were absolutely electric (except for a quiet ten minutes in the second half), and had it not been for a few dropped balls this would have been the perfect performance. We are now really starting to look the part.
