On yet another cold day, marred by yet more hailstorms, the Rhinos Under 18ís picked up their first win of the season against Hull FC in a much improved performance from the one at Widnes the week before.

The Rhinos had the game in the bag at half time despite a scoreless opening quarter when good defence and mistakes were in evidence. It was from a Hull error that led to the Rhinos opening try on 21 minutes, Luke Gale taking the ball from the base of the scrum before using Tom Burton as the dummy runner to split the Hull defence to go over from 20 metres out. Kyle Briggs adding the conversion.

Leeds struck again in the 28th minutes and again it was Gale who was to the fore, his grubber kick behind the Hull defence being snapped up by Kyle Briggs and he went in by the posts. The game breaking score came right on half time, and Luke Gale again had a hand in it. His pass finding Michael Ratu, with Ryan Hall coming in off his wing to collect the pass and show great strength to get over the line. Briggs converted both to give the Rhinos an 18-0 half time lead.

It was the visitors who made the brighter start to the second half and they struck first 11 minutes into the second half. A last tackle move involving Ross Divorty and Ashley Thackeray sending Chris Shally in at the corner, Scott Jackson was unable to convert but the gap was down to 14 points.

Leeds though hit back with two tries in 6 minutes, first in the 58th minute after a penalty had given Leeds good field position a move up the blind saw Simon Brown find Mike Ratu and the Captain forced his way over the line. Then Gale found full back Tom Sheldrake who had chimed into the line perfectly and his over the top pass found Ben Fawcett and he forced his way in at the corner. Briggs converted both to take the Rhinos home at 30-4.

The Rhinos had one more try in them and it was Gale again at the centre of it, his high bomb was spilled by Richard Lamplough and James Archibald was on the spot to flick the ball up for Ben Collins to go in at the corner. Briggs was off target with the conversion but with 9 minutes to go the gap was 30 points.

Hull to their credit never gave up and again managed to build up pressure on the Leeds line, but the Rhinos defence was magnificent at times. But eventually, on the back of a repeat set, the pressure told and Ashley Thackeray sent Danny Richardson in at the cover, the conversion from Jackson was on target to take the final score to 34-10 to Leeds.

A super display in some atrocious conditions, it was a day for the forwards to stand up and be counted and the front three of Michael Haley, Ben Kaye and Ben Jones were magnificent, as they were at Widnes the week before. Liam Brown in the second row set the example and Luke Gale was a constant threat to the visitors. The SouthStander.com Man of the Match went to Joe Chandler, a willing runner ball in hand and solid as a rock on defence.

The Under 18ís next fixture is against Bradford Bulls at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on Thursday night, itís the curtain raiser to the engage Super League clash and kicks off at 5.45.
