The Rhinos Under 18s met Wigan Warriors at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on Sunday with a place in the final eliminator next weekend at Widnes up for grabs. It was a repeat of last years Grand Final at this level and the Rhinos had it all to do against a strong Wigan side the included many players who had been in the Senior Academy for most of the year.

We bring you all the action here....

U18's Bow OUt

It was the visitors who got on the board first after 7 minutes; Liam Brown touched a kick through from Sam Tompkins in flight. Gareth Moore was then unable to regather the ball and Darryl Goulding was on hand to touch down. David Small added the conversion to give Wigan an early six point lead.

The Rhinos, who had lost 34-18 at Wigan in the regular season, looked to fight back and eventually got their reward with a quarter of the match gone. The ball was moved right from Simon Brown to Danny Allan. He then put a perfectly weighted kick into the northwest corner and Ben Jones-Bishop was on hand to touch down. Gareth Moore converted from the sideline and it was all square.

The Rhinos were dominant now and looked to press home their advantage and took the lead after 27 minutes. After a Wigan error gave the Rhinos possession the ball was worked left and Simon Brown’s pass found Ben Fawcett on the charge. The front-rower then went 50 meters to score in the corner. Moore was unable to convert that try but added a penalty in the 36th minute when Tom Coyle was penalised for a high tackle, which deserved more than a talking to from referee Brooke.

That put the Rhinos 12-6 up but disaster was to strike right on half time as Leeds gifted the Warriors a try. Instead of sticking the ball up the jumper and seeing things through to half time Jodie Broughton tried an ambitious offload 5 metres from his own line. The pass went behind Liam Brown and Darryl Goulding was on hand to get his second try of the game. The conversion from Small was off target and Leeds went into half time 12-10 to the good.

The Warriors then turned the game on its head in the first 7 minutes of the second half. First Darryl Goulding completed his hat trick, with 2 minutes on the watch after being put through a huge gap by Sam Tomkins and then 5 minutes later another Rhinos error gifted a try. Jodie Broughton and Wayne Reittie spilling a high kick from Tomkins and Nicky Stanton was on hand to touch down. Small converted both tries and Wigan suddenly led 22-10.

Leeds had a mountain to climb if they were to get anything out of this game but they gave they hit back with 20 minutes remaining. After back to back penalties gave Leeds a foothold in the Wigan half the ball was moved left by Simon Brown and he found namesake Liam and he went through the gap to go over. Gareth Moore converted and Leeds were 4 points behind with everything to play for.

It was not to be for the Rhinos as the Warriors got the crucial score with 10 minutes left. On the 5th tackle the Leeds defence was caught short out wide as a pass from Tom Coyle found Darryl Goulding and he went in for his fourth try of the afternoon. Small converted to put the Warriors 28-18 ahead. Leeds tried to find the score to get them back into the game but first the Warriors defence held firm as time run out.

Congratulations to Wigan who now move onto next weekend’s final eliminator at Widnes Vikings. It was a superb game of Rugby League and I must take my hat off to both teams for providing some superb entertainment.

Full credit to Leeds, they gave 110% but made too many costly errors that ultimately proved to be their downfall. Ben Jones was again impressive for the Rhinos as was fellow front rower Joe Chandler. Simon Brown was lively and always looked to create. The SouthStander.com man of the match went to Liam Brown, who was impressive on both attack and defence.
