Plucky Part-Timers no match for Rampant Rhinos
Posted by southstander on March 30 2007 - 23:12:29

Scott Four

This was always going to be 'men against boys' as the part-timers from Cumbria visited HQ. The lowest attendance for many seasons indicated the lack of appetite of the Leeds public for the game as just three and a half thousand bothered to make their way to Headingley for this Carnegie Challenge Cup fourth round game.

A good contingent had made the three hour, one hundred and forty-mile friday evening trip from Workington and they cheered their players from start to finish. But they were simply no match for the side equal top of Superleague.

Plucky Part-Timers no match for Rampant Rhinos

The clock showed just forty-five seconds when the Rhinos opened the scoring with the kick-off return. Three tackles, and three play-the-balls, saw Donald on a left wing overlap come round and improve the angle for a simple Sinfield goal. The pattern for the night was already set. Any illusions that the Cumbrians might have had laid in tatters.

On four minutes, the visitors still not having had the ball in hand, the Rhinos kept the ball alive after benefitting from two penalties. A Lauiti'iti pass found Jordan Tansey to score one-handed in the corner. Sinfield failed with the conversion but with the game only four minutes old we were 10-0 up, at that rate we wee heading for the record books.

But all credit to Workington who slammed on the brakes.

It was a full eleven minutes before we were over the whitewash again. This time a penalty for interference allowed a long ball to Scott Donald to cross. Sinfield converted for 16-0.

Three minutes later and Lauiti'iti and Burrow both made good metres before releasing Donald from the forty metre line to complete an eighteen minute hat-trick. Sinfield failed to convert from out wide but the Rhinos already had the game sealed up and their names in the hat for the next round. Workington simply had no answer.


Hat-Trick

On twenty-one, Ali and McGuire worked well to break from half way to the Workington thirty before passing to Donald who added another to his hat-trick (now four in twenty-one). Sinfield added the extras from a better angle for 26-0. The part-timers looked exhaused and were struggling to get back into a line. No posession and four men in every tackle were taking a heavy toll.

Approching the half hour and a suspiciously forward pass from McGuire was missed by the referee allowing Tansey to score. Sinfield hit the post but the ball bounced back into the field of play.

On thirty-five a nice switch between Sinfield and Ablett found the former with the ball a couple of metres from the Workington posts and he took his chance to score. Converting his own try, Sinfield had take us to 36-0. As the hooter sounded for half-time Gibson broke from half-way, put in an acutely angled grubber kick and Burrow collected the boucing ball to score under the sticks. Sinfeld added the extras for a 42-0 half-time lead.

Whenever the Rhinos had moved the ball to the wing they'd scored, but the tactics seemed to be to play up the middle until late in the tackle count. Surely Smith and his entourage must have seen this and would correct the game plan at half time...perhaps not!


20 Points
The second half started like the first with an early try. This time it was Ablett who went close but got tackled, despite a two player overlap outside him. It mattered litte as Lauiti'iti burrowed over from short range acting half back. Sinfield goaled for 48-0.

On forty-five Donald twinkle toed his way past tackle after tackle and made half way from behind his own line. A pass inside found a willing Burrow who went the remaining fifty to core under the sticks. Sinfield converted for 54-0 and it was time to wonder whether the ton could be on the cards. We were scoring at will.

On fifty-three a McGuire step and short pass allowed Ablett to get on the scoresheet Sinfield goaled for 60-0, but the noisy Cumbrians kept on singing.

Sixty-three saw Vaughan inthe sin-bin for a high tackle on Diskin but the Rhinos hooker obviously hadn't felt it as a minute later he burrowed over the line from acting half back to get on the score sheet. In Sinfield absence, Burrow added the extras. Two minutes later and a Gibson break down the right wing allowed him to draw the last defender before releasing Rob Burrow for his hat-trick try. Rob added the goal for 72-0 and we still had fourteen minutes left to add to the total.

Butthe Rhinos scoring was over. On seventy-one a Tansey mis-control of a high bomb allowed the visitors another set of six and on the third tackle awes scored in the corner to the loudest cheer of the night. The conversion was missed by Kirkbride but Workington had not suffered the humiliation of being nilled. On seventy-four they were at it again as a loose ball was dribbled over the line and King won the race to touch down. Kirkbride added the goal and a little respectability to the visitors score completing a 72-10 scoreline.

All credit to Workington, they kept going to the very end although they were obviously exhausted from ten minutes in to the first half. The Rhinos never really got out of first gear, and never needed to as their expansive play was too much for the visitors to handle. It could have been a lot more that seventy-two, of we had given the ball more air to the wings. When we did get the ball out Donald and Tansey had a party, we just didn't do it enough.

We're in the hat for round five, and ultimately, that is all that matters.
