Youngsters Set the Tone

The opening kick off from Jordan Tansey went dead and from the drop out Leeds had the first chance but Carl Ablett held on to the ball too long and Danny Williams was bundled into touch but the next the Rhinos had the ball they scored. Peter Fox fielding a kick in his own in-goal area and running the ball back the length of the field to go in under the posts. Ashley Gibson converted from in front to put the Rhinos 6-0 ahead.

Leeds struck again from the kick off, good work down the left from Nathan McAvoy, Danny Williams and Jamie IíAnson drawing the Harlequins defence across. The ball was moved quickly right with Luke Gale and Tansey creating the overlap for Michael Brown to go in at the corner. Gibsonís conversion went wide and it was 10-0 to the Rhinos after three minutes.

Leeds continued to dominate the game but they just couldnít breach some resolute defence from the home side. The Rhinos maybe guilty of a lack of patience at times but eventually in the 27th minute they got their third try of the afternoon. Jordan Tansey showing super strength to offload in the tackle for Ayden Faal to go over the line. The conversion from Gibson hit the post to give the Rhinos a 14-0 lead.

Five minutes later the Rhinos were in again, after getting a repeat set thanks to some great work on defence from Ashley Gibson. The Harlequins defence was beginning to look frail and it was Jordan Tansey running across the defensive line before throwing the dummy to go over. Gibson was off target again. Leeds struck again from the kick off and it was a carbon copy of the Lee Smith try in Perpignan. Luke Gale fielding the kick off before finding Danny Williams on the short side and he went down the touchline to go in under the posts. Gibson converting to take the lead to 24-0.

The Rhinos got right back into the swing of things in the second half. After forcing a repeat set from a towering bomb from Tansey the Rhinos had great field position from the resulting goal line drop out. It was then Tansey who created the opening for Dale Harris to go in at the corner. Gibsonís kick went wide but with half only three minutes old the Rhinos stretched their lead to 28-0.

The Rhinos went in again in the 53rd minute, Dave Tootill releasing Nathan McAvoy and had the simple task of drawing the full-back to send Peter Fox in by the posts. Gibson this time adding the conversion to stretch the lead to 34-0. Leeds then went in on their next set, Jordan Tansey with the big kick downfield and the Harlequins full back made a right hash of fielding the ball and Ashley Gibon was on hand to touch down. The went wide but it was now 38-0 to the Rhinos.

It was becoming a procession, this time the ball was moved left by Tansey and Gale and it was the captain for the day Nathan McAvoy who was on hand to go over the line. Leeds were now easily finding holes in a tiring home defensive line. Gibson converted to take the Rhinos to a 44-0 lead after 60 minutes. Leeds struck again 5 minutes later, Mark Watts putting Tansey into the gap and Ashley Gibson was on hand to take the pass to go in under the posts. Gibson converted his own try to take the Rhinos to the 50 point mark.

It was becoming a procession to the Harlequins line now, two minutes later a neat pass from Tansey released Dave Tootill and he stormed upfield and like all good halfbacks do Tansey was in support to take the return pass to go over under the posts. Gibson with the simple task of adding the extras and take the score to 56-0.

The home side then had an extended period of pressure on the Rhinos line and it ended with the gaining a consolation try in the 74th minutes. After 4 consecutive sets on the Rhinos line they eventually found a breach when Jonny Williams showed great strength to get in at the corner. Tom Bold was off target with the conversion but the home side deserved it for all their efforts in the match to give the Rhinos a 56-4 victory.

Harlequins were unfortunately no match for a Rhinos side that has bounced back from the defeat at St Helens. For the home side Duncan James was impressive in a lost cause but for the Rhinos it was another solid performance that will impress coach Graeme Hallas. The three-quarters impressed again as did Jamie IíAnson at hooker but the SouthStander.com man of the match went to Nathan McAvoy who enhanced his claims for a first team spot with another powerful performance.
