The Ashley Gibson Show
Posted by southstander on June 20 2006 - 10:08:02

38 Point Haul
By Matthew Horton at The Willows

The Senior Academy travelled to the Willows looking to make it three wins in a row since the disappointing defeat to Hull at Headingley Carnegie Stadium a month ago. Kyle Briggs continued after impressing last week and there was a step up from the Under 18ís for prop Ben Jones.

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

The Ashley Gibson Show

Leeds were convincing winners in the fixture at Headingley Carnegie earlier on in the season and a quick look down the team list seemed to give the impression that it was going to be another hard night at the office for Scott Naylorís team. And so it proved with SouthStander.com sponsored Ashley Gibson sticking his hand up for a first team spot.

The Rhinos were on the board as early as the second minute, and inside pass from Jordan Tansey found Ayden Faal and he strolled in front 20 metres out. Gibson converted the try and Leeds were soon up a running. The City Reds tried as they did to get back into the game and put pressure on the Leeds line with John Clough being architect of their good play.

It was slightly against the run of play when Leeds got their second try on 15 minutes. Carl Ablett going up the short side where he found Tansey and he drew the defence in superbly to give Ashley Gibson a clear run to the line from 40 metres out. Gibson converted the try and the Rhinos were 12-0 up.

It wasnít all one-way traffic though and the Rhinos had to wait 9 minutes for their next try and it was a carbon copy of the first score. This time Tanseyís switch of direction found Steve Brooke and he went in by the posts to leave Gibson with an easy two pointer. Jordan Tansey was next to breach the Salford line as he ran across field, the defence took the dummy and Tansey went in at the corner. Gibson was wide with the conversion; his only miss of the night to take it to 16-0.

The Rhinos then got a crucial score right on the half time whistle, a run around between Tansey and Buttery created the opening and it was Gibson again who was on hand to go over. He converted from wide out to take the half time score to 22-0.

Salford made a determined start to the second half and managed to keep the Rhinos at bay for 13 minutes and it was again Tansey and Gibson involved. From a scrum deep in their own half Gibson released Tansey up the Eastern touchline. The ball came free in the tackle and Gibson picked up and ran across field and then found a gap on half way to sprint over for his hat trick try. He then tagged on the extras.

Salford got a reward for their hard efforts in the 59th minute, and it was the first time they had scored against the Rhinos after being nilled at Headingley Carnegie in March. Jordan Turner finding a gap in the Rhinos defence after a cross-field run. Andy Ballardís conversion attempt troubled the corner flag rather than the goal post but the gap was down to 20 points.

It stung Leeds into action and they hit back with four tries in 10 minutes. After scoring Salford put pressure on the Leeds line and on the last tackle they had a possible overlap but Ashley Gibson intercepted and long pass from Darren Gibson and the centre showed great pace to go in from 90 metres out. Three minutes later, Chris Buttery and Tansey combined to put Luke Burgess through a huge gap and the prop went in from 20 metres out.

And the after 71 minutes it was a repeat of the move but this time Burgess released his fellow prop Dave Tootill, he could have gone on to score himself but unselfishly passed inside for Kyle Briggs to go in under the posts. Then two minutes later Jordan Tansey made the break from deep inside his own half, he backed himself to score but was caught by the covering Darren Bamford but he flung the ball inside and despite looking to be a little forward it was collected by Ashley Gibson and he squeezed in at the corner for his 5th try of the evening. Gibson converted all four tries to give him 38 points on the night.

The home side though had the last say in the game when a pass by Jordan Tansey was intercepted by Darren Gibson, he set off for the corner but was caught by the Leeds defence. A quick play the ball saw Darren Bamford show good footwork to go over. Adi Dootson converted to leave the Rhinos 58-10 winners.

Superb performance from the Rhinos, Jordan Tansey was at the heart of everything the Rhinos did. Chris Buttery took the most of his opportunity in the run on side and the two props, Luke Burgess and Dave Tootill laid the platform for the go forward. The man of the match choice was probably the easiest one to pick all season and it went to the SouthStander.com sponsored Ashley Gibson. Five tries and nine from ten off the boot for a personal haul of 38 points making him the clear choice.
