The Senior Academy travelled to Wheldon Road to take on a Castleford team looking to avenge defeat at Headingley earlier in the season. The Rhinos gave a debut to Jamie Thackray as Ashley Gibson was moved up into the first team. Again the conditions were red hot.

U21's Win With Great Fightback

The Tigers were first on the board within two minutes when Matt Whittaker and Danny Ireland combined to send Dean Ripley over. Ripley then adding the conversion. The Rhinos struck back 6 minutes later, on the last tackle the Rhinos went to the short side and quick hands from Jordan Tansey and Mike Ratu put Jason Bowsley in at the corner. Tansey was off target with the conversion to leave the Rhinos 6-4 behind.

The Tigers then took the initiative with two quick tries, first everyone missed a kick through from Grant Edwards and Danny Ireland was on hand to touch down. Then Edwards made the telling break through some poor Leeds defence and gave Lee Land a clear run to the line. Ripley converted both tries and the Tigers were 18-4 up after 25 minutes.

Leeds got themselves back into the game 10 minutes from half time, after good work from Jamie I’Anson in the build up put Tansey in the clear; he showed great footwork to evade 4 possible tacklers before sending Ben Kaye under the posts. Tansey converted and the gap was back to 8 points.

The Tigers hit the Rhinos with two quick tries, first on 32 minutes Tom Haughey put substitute Eddie Croft into a huge hole and he went in untouched and three minutes later ex-Rhinos Danny Ireland stole the ball of Michael Brown one on one and went in from 50 metres. Ripley converted both and suddenly the Rhinos were 30-10 down.

Leeds didn’t give up and struck with a try just before half time Camped on the Tigers line, Jordan Tansey put a kick through on the last tackle. The ball hit the upright and Tom Sheldrake was on hand to touch down under the posts. Tansey converted, the half time whistle went and Leeds went in for a cool down 30-16 down.

The Rhinos then made it two tries either side of half time, Kyle Briggs going down the short side found Mike Ratu. He showed great strength and power to get his way over the line. Then 7 minutes later, again on the last tackle the Rhinos had men out wide as Tansey, Briggs and Ian Kirke created the overlap to send Jason Bowsley in for his second try. Tansey was only able to convert one of the tries but Leeds were back in the game at 30-26.

Leeds though got caught out in the 56th minute. On the last tackle Grant Edwards went to the short side, he found Matt Whittaker and his looping ball fell into the hands of Tana Wakelin and he went in at the corner. Ripley converted superbly and the gap was again back to 10 points.

Leeds though wouldn’t give up, three minutes later after Tansey had been held short. Chris Buttery found Jamie Thackray and he crashed over for his first try in Rhinos colours. Then Lee Land was guilty of losing the ball in the Rhinos 30, Tom Sheldrake recovered and sent Chris Buttery down the popular side touchline to get in at the corner. Tansey converted both and Leeds were in front for the first time 38-36.

The Rhinos were not finished there, Briggs released Thackray and after charging up field he found Tom Sheldrake who weaved his way to the line. There was a hint of a double movement but referee Dean was on the spot to award the try. Then with 6 minutes left the icing on the cake, James Endersby taking a cross-field kick from Jordan Tansey to go in at the corner. Tansey converted the first try to leave the Rhinos 48-36 winners.

A remarkable comeback from the Rhinos, at 30-10 to the good the Tigers must have through they had the game in the bag. The game was played in sweltering conditions and credit goes to both sides for a very entertaining game. For the Rhinos the go forward of Jamie Thackray was impressive. Tom Sheldrake at full back showed some good touches and Jason Bowsley showed up well on debut. The SouthStander.com man of the match went to Jamie I’Anson. When times were tough he was taking the Rhinos forward at every opportunity and spurred his colleagues on.
