U18's Hold On For The Win
Posted by southstander on August 07 2006 - 06:36:11

Strong Performance
By Matthew Horton at the Arthur Miller Stadium

The Under 18ís looked to build on the victory over St Helens a fortnight ago when they took on the Salford City Reds at Stanningley. Another hot day and bone hard pitch was in store for the players in what was to be a stern test with the visitors having defeated Wigan in their last outing.

We bring you all the action here....

U18's Hold On For The Win

It was a very even opening quarter when the teams were not giving each other an inch. It was the City Reds who made the first break of the afternoon and only a wonderful covering tackle by Wayne Reittie saved the day for the Rhinos. Leeds spent plenty of time in the Salford half but were unable to break down the defence.

The Rhinos finally managed to make the pressure pay in 24 minutes. John Elkington went close after a powerful charge, and then Ben Kaye managed to scoot over from dummy half. The Rhinos struck again in their next set, the ball being moved wide and Wayne Reittie making the break down the touchline. He was caught just short of the line by Eddie Vaughan but a quick play the ball allowed Ben Fawcett to dive over the line as the City Reds defensive line was in tatters. Gareth Moore converted both tries to give the Rhinos a 12-0 lead.

The Rhinos then extended their lead in the 33rd minute. After piling more pressure on the Salford line a neat chip over the top from Gareth Moore was claimed by Wayne Reittie ahead of Darren Fletcher and he touched down in the corner. The conversion attempt from Moore drifted across the face of the posts but the Rhinos went into the break 16-0 up.

The City Reds though made the perfect start to the second half after Tom Burton fumbled the opening kick off. It gave them the perfect starting point deep in the Leeds half and they exploited it as a run across field from Jordan Turner found Eddie Vaughan and he crashed over the line. Lewis Palfrey converted and the gap was down the six points.

Again the teams continued to bash each other about looking for the opening but Leeds always seemed to in control of the game territorially, pinning Salford back in their half and asking them to find a way through from near their own half. The City Reds though gave themselves a lifeline in the 63rd minute in controversial circumstances. The ball was moved right from Leeds and Darren Fletcher appeared to knock down a pass from Wayne Reittie.

It seemed to everyone in the ground it was a knock on, but Fletcher picked the ball up, both referee and touch judge hesitated and then waved played on. Fletcher pinned his ears back to go in from 80 metres out but then didnít seem to ground the ball as Ben Jones-Bishop got back to make the tackle. Much to the dismay of the home fans referee Price awarded the try, the conversion from Palfrey was off target but it was a six point ball game and all to play for.

It was Salford now who could sense victory, but Leeds were still controlling the game and keeping the home side pinned in their own half and asking them to go up the slight Stanningley slope from 90 metres every time they got possession. It was a Salford error that was to prove costly with 5 minutes to go, Andy Waring dropped a cross-field kick from Gareth Moore on his own line and David Leeke was on hand to recover. Again the Salford defence did not have time to reorganise and James Archibald too advantage to go in from dummy half. The conversion from Moore was off target but the Rhinos were home and 20-10 winners.

Big win for the Rhinos as they look to keep up the pressure on St Helens in the race for second place in the league table. Ben Jones-Bishop was superb at full back in one of his best performances of the season. The pack again got through a ton of work with Joe Chandler, Ben Jones and Ben Kaye leading the way. The SouthStander.com man of the match went to Joe Howie. A superb performance in difficult conditions.
