Mad Dogs and Rugby Players Bask in the Midday Sun

The Rhinos Under 18ís looked to make it 4 in a row as they entertained the Castleford Tigers on a red hot day at Stanningley. Ryan Hall and James Archibald dropped back from the 21ís to bolster the back line and Liam Brown returned after his 1 match ban for this sending off in the Senior Academy against Wakefield.

We bring you all the action here....

Mad dogs and rugby players bask in the midday sun

Leeds began the first half playing up the slight Stanningley slope on a pitch that looked like it could do with a few thousand gallons of water on it. Wayne Reittie was denied the opening score of the game with only two minutes on the clock when the touch judge intervened to rule a forward pass. But Reittie wasnít to be denied after 14 minutes after he released Luke Gale with a superb pass out of the back door and then followed play to take the return pass to go in by the posts. Gareth Moore converted and the Rhinos were ahead.

Castleford were a well organised unit and pressuring the Rhinos line on a few occasions but the defence from Leeds was superb. They were determined not to let the Tigers in but had some good fortune when under pressure when the referee blew time off for a drinks break because of the conditions. It seemed to galvanise Leeds and they struck next on the half hour, Simon Brown and Tom Burton combining to send Liam Brown in at the corner after he joined the line perfectly. Moore missed the conversion attempt to the leave the Rhinos 10-0 up.

Crucially the Rhino got another score just before the half time whistle. After an error from Castleford gave the Rhinos a scrum on the Tigers 30 metre line. Luke Gale broke from the base and went left; the Tigers defence went to sleep and took the dummy for Gale to go in by the posts without a finger being laid on him. Moore converted; the whistle went for half time and Leeds were 16 points to the good.

Leeds then for the perfect start to the second half, the ball ended up in prop Joe Chandlerís hands on the last tackle and he put boot to ball. It was a superb kick and landed into a gap and was hacked forward by Gareth Moore and he followed up to touch down. There was then a five-minute delay before Mooreís successful conversion as a Castleford player had to be stretchered off after a collision in the build up. The Leeds players headed for what little shade they could find before the game resumed on the return of the medical staff.

Leeds then blitzed the Tigers with three tries in 6 minutes. First on 50 minutes Paul McShane threw a huge dummy to make a break from dummy half and he sent Danny Allan over for a try. Three minutes later James Archibaldís clever offload found McShane, again he threw a dummy to split the Tigers defence and had option both side before electing to send Moore under the posts for his second.

Them came a superb team try as Simon Brown and Ben Jones-Bishop released Archibald up the right wing, Danny Allan was inside supporting and he sent in Gareth Moore to complete his hat trick. Moore converted all three tries and the Rhinos were suddenly 40-0 up.

Castleford were looking a tired outfit now and the Rhinos lifted their energy levels to keep piling on the points. On 66 minutes Jodie Broughton fielded a neat chip kick from Gareth Moore and he raced downfield before sending Danny Allan in under the posts for his second try of the afternoon. Moore converting yet again.

Then on 72 minutes another superb team try, the ball passing through no less than six pairs of hands before Simon Brown sent Liam Brown in at the corner for his second try of the afternoon. The conversion from Moore fell short but Leeds had hit the 50-point mark again.

There was time for one last Rhinos score to put the icing on the cake, Danny Allan running across the face of a tired Castleford defence to put Jodie Broughton into the clear. He easily rounded the Tigers full back to go in under the posts. Gareth Moore got his 8th goal of the afternoon the leave the Rhinos 56-0 winners.

Sounds silly, but this game was a lot closer than it suggest and the Tigers were very unlucky to come away with no points but that is credit to the Leeds defence. Paul McShane again showed glimpses of the magic he can produce and Wayne Reittie showed some nice touches ball in hand as well and Gareth Moore contributing 28 points. I take my hat off to the pack today; hard work in those conditions and itís where we find the SouthStander.com man of the match. This week Joe Chandler got the prize, but Ben Jones pushed him really close. A workhorse on both attack and defence setting the example.

The Under 18ís are back in action next Saturday when they entertain St Helens. The venue and kick off is yet to be confirmed.
