Hungry Like The Wolves

The Wolves struck first with only three minutes on the clock. After a penalty gave Warrington excellent field position they battered the Rhinos line and prop Dave Saxon barged his way over the line. Andy Mousdale converted to give the home side an early 6-0 lead.

The home side went further ahead three minutes later. With the Rhinos enjoying their first attack of the game a pass from Jordan Tansey was intercepted by Andy Moulsdale abd we went 85 meters untouched to go in under then posts. Stephen Roper converted to double the lead to 12-0

The Rhinos were then denied when Jason Hart stole the ball one on one in the tackle and he was ruled to have lost the ball over the line. As the Wolves tried to make a quick restart Luke Gale interefered with a Warrington player and was dispatched to the Sin Bin for 10 minutes.

Leeds though finally got on the board while still a man down, an inside pass from Kyles Briggs released Luke Burgess and he went in under the posts. Tansey converted to bring the Rhinos back to 12-6 in arrears.

The Rhinos were denied again in the 21st minute after a Tansey pass was touched by Kevin Penny, wayne Reittie streaked down the touchline and put Jason Hart in under the posts, but the touch judge ruled the original pass from Tansey was forward and the try was ruled out. And another chance went five minutes later when Luke Burgess lost the ball over the line.

Leeds struck level after 29 minutes, Steve Brook found Michael Haley and his superb offload found Luke Gale and he stepped his way over the line. Tansey converted and Leeds were back in the game.

Leeds were denied for a fourth time in the 32nd minute, Simon Worrall going down the short side from dummy half. He reached out to touch the ball down but the touch judge ruled he had hit the sideline.

Leeds then hit the front two minutes from half time, Luke Gale releasing Jodie Broughton up the right hand touch line, he had Simon Worrall and Michael Brown in support and it was the substitue who went over. Tansey converted to put the Rhinos 18-12 in front at half time.

The Rhinos then made the perfect start to the second half, with 47 minutes on the watch Leeds struck while Warrington were a man down in the defensive line due to an injury. Luke Burgess found Kyle Briggs and his inside pass released Danny Williams who crossed from 20 metres out to mark his return from injury. Tansey converted to extend the lead to 24-12.

It got better for the Rhinos on the next set, another inside pass from Tansey to Simon Worrall released the second row forward and Ben Jones-Bishop was on hand to take the pass to go over untouched form 30 metres out. Tansey again obliged with the conversion and Leeds were 18 points in front.

It was one way traffic now, Luke Gale with the long pass that releaed Broughton. The support was there in numbers and Simon Worrall was on hand to go under the posts, Tansey again with the extras and the Rhinos had completed turned the game around to lead 36-12.

The Rhinos scored again off the next set and it was another inside pass from Michael Haley that released Luke Gale. This time it was Jordan Tansey in support and he went under the posts to make his conversion a simple task to take the Rhinos to 42 unanswered points.

Leeds then returned the following kick off for a try in what is fondly known as the "Perpignan Special", Luke Gale going to the short side and releasing Danny Williams, he found Jodie Broughton who released Ben Jones-Bishop for his second try of the game. Tansey again converted to give the Rhinos 30 points in an amazing 10 minute spell.

Warrington then piled the pressure on the Leeds line but the defense held firm for four consecutive sets. On the last tackle and deep in their own territory the Rhinos went for glory, a little kick through from Briggs was picked up by Tansey, his over the head pass found Mike Ratu and he released Wayne Reittie to go in at the corner. Tansey kept his 100% record with the boot from sideline to take the Rhinos over 50 point mark with 15 minutes to go.

The Rhinos again made it back to back tries, Luke Gale's break giving the Rhinos initial field position. The ball was moved left and Mike Ratu put the big fend on to get in at the corner. Tansey's conversion drifted wide to leave the Rhinos 58-12 ahead

Warrington gained some consolation for their efforts, first a little chip kick near the line Matthew Blythe was not dealt with by Wayne Reittie and Martin Ridyard touched down in the corner, then Craig Cornelia went in from close range. The conversion attempts from Roper were off target to leave the Rhinos 58-20 ahead.

Leeds were not finished though and smashed the 60 point barrier with 2 late tries. Firstly Danny Williams with the big break upfield and Luke Gale was on hand to go over from 40 metres out. Then Carl Ablett barged his way over from 20 metres out. Tansey's kicked both conversions to leave the Rhinos 70-20 winners.

After a slow start the Rhinos clicked into gear after 20 minutes, a super performance in the hot conditions. Led by the platform laid by Luke Burgess and Simon Worrall, the backs were able to shine and Jordan Tansey and Danny Williams had field day. The half backs were instrumental and the ISC Sponsored SouthStander.com man of the match went to Luke Gale.
