U18's Make It A Clean Sweep

Rhinos MoM
By Matthew Horton

The Under 18ís travelled to the Jungle to take on the Castleford Tigers, looking to bounce back from the late loss against the Bradford Bulls the week before.

Injuries robbed coach John Bastian of Michael Haley and Ben Fawcett and with Under 21 call ups also affecting selection he was forced to sign two players on trial in the week.

U18's Make It A Clean Sweep

It was the Rhinos, attacking the Wheldon Road end, which made the more promising start against a big Tigers outfit. On six minutes after a scrum on the Tigers 10 metre line James Archibald took the ball into the line. He managed to offload to Kyle Briggs and he sent Ben Collins in at the corner for the opening try. The conversion from Briggs hit the crossbar.

The Rhinos then scored on their next set, with the help of a penalty to get them down field, Joe Howey was held up short of the line but from the play the ball Ben Kaye found Danny Allen and the second rower stretched out to go in under the posts. The kick from Briggs was good and the Rhinos were 10 points in front.

It was all Leeds and the Castleford defence was struggling to keep up with the Rhinos pace on attack and after Tom Burton had a try disallowed he was at the thick of it as Leeds scored again. His pass found Kyle Briggs and although the round the back pass looked forward it enabled Wayne Reittie to squeeze in at the corner. The kick was off target from Briggs but the Rhinos were almost going at a point a minute.

Castleford looked to get a way back into the game, but the Rhinos defence was resolute and was not for breaking. After the Tigers were penalised for not playing the ball correctly on their own 10metre line the Rhinos struck again. From the tap Liam Brown went close to scoring before Ben Kaye too the ball from dummy half to force his way over. Brigs added the conversion and Leeds were 20-0 to the good. On the half hour mark Leeds were in again after a fantastic run from James Archibald set up the position. He seemed to beat all the Tigers defenders before being just hauled to ground. Tom Sheldrake then went close from the play the ball before Ben Kaye again went from dummy half in a carbon copy of his earlier score. Briggs again with the conversion.

Leeds were now on a roll, and after forcing Castleford to turn the football over only one metre from their own line they were in again. James Archibald again with a superb run to set up the position before Kaye found Danny Allen charging into the line and he stretched out to scored under the posts. Briggs converted again to give the Rhinos a 32-0 lead.

Castleford though got a foothold in the game right on half time when a high kick from Jamie Cording was spilled in the in goal by Ben Collins, who was under some heavy traffic at the time. Luke Lacey was the first to react to touch down. They try was converted by Ashley Newton, the referee blew for half time and the Rhinos went in with a 32-6 lead.

It was the Rhinos who opened the scoring in the second half with 7 minutes on the clock. After a penalty took the to the Castleford 20 big drives from Ben Jones and Joe Chandler took the Rhinos to within 5 metres of the line before Ben Kaye showed great strength to get in from dummy half to complete his hat-trick. Briggs was unable to convert the try. Two minutes later the Rhinos were in again. Wayne Reittie with the clearing run from the kick off before Gareth Moore collected from dummy half, showed the dummy to the Tigers defence and went on a run up the main stand side. He has only the full back to beat but Moore sidestepped him easily and went under the posts. Briggs converted to take the Rhinos to a 42-6 lead.

Leeds then took their eye off the ball a little and allowed the Tigers back into the game. First Cording and Lacey combined to send Ben Farrar in at the corner and Lacey was at the hub again as he had the ball stolen one on one just short of the Leeds line. The ball rolled into the in goal area and Lacey was first to react to touch down. Newton could only convert one of the tries to bring the Tigers back to 42-16.

Leeds werenít finished, first after a scrum on half way Briggs and Sheldrake created the overlap and Ben Jones-Bishop, on his debut, showed a great turn of speed to go on the outside and outpace the Castleford defence to score in the corner. Briggs converted the try. Then Briggs was again the creator after a great combination from Tom Sheldrake and Gareth Moore gave the Rhinos field position. The Tigers defence rushed up and Kyle Briggs put the little kick in and the other debutant Jody Broughton was on hand to touch down in the corner. Briggs was off target but it took the final score to 52-16 in favour of the Rhinos.

A magnificent performance from Leeds given the circumstances. Full credit to Mike Ratu and Liam Brown who backed up from playing in the Senior Academy some 18 hours earlier. Ben Kaye was the try poacher supreme and Tom Sheldrake at full back again impressed greatly again as did James Archibald. The Tigers defence seemed afraid of him and were relieved when he went off injured. The SouthStander.com man of the match went to Ben Jones, a tireless worker on attack and defence. He was on the field for over 60 minutes in warm conditions and took the Rhinos forward at every opportunity.
