Who Killed Cock Robin?
Posted by southstander on May 27 2007 - 19:06:29

Try & 40-20

These were not conditions conducive to open, flowing, rugby league. They were conditions more akin to stopping at home in front of a late May raging fire, sipping coffee and wondering what had happened to the English Summer.

But we didn't. Droves of us made the journey to the wind and rain swept east coast to see if our lads could halt a two game losing streak, against the side that humiliated us back in march.

We didn't want to be there supporting, and as the lads took the field I bet they could think of a lot of better things that they could have been doing with their sunday afternoon.

SLXII - Round XV

27th May 2007

Who Killed Cock Robin?

The Rhinos were once again without Matt Diskin who failed a fitness test before the coach left Headingley, so we remained unchanged from the side that lost narrowly last week across the city at the KC. Todays scenario was however, totally different. Different weather, different facilities and a different desire to win. Another loss would simply not be entertained.

But early on we were up against it. Ryan Hall sarted the game with a nightmare kick through collect which saw him put a foot in touch in goal when he should have let the ball bounce dead. There followed three further goal-line drop-outs but the good news was that the Rhinos defence was holding firm. Keeping hold of the ball was KR's problem and the resolute defenceeventually forced the errors that allowed the Rhinos to get our of trouble.

The home side did open the scoring on twelve minutes when Danny McGuire unnecessarily held back a player chasing a kick through. Cooke slotted over a simple penalty with the wind at his back an the thronged partisan supporters in the East Stand must have thought that lightening could be about to strike twice.

Leeds were barely in the opposition half in the opening twenty but their defence in keeping the Hull KR onslaught at bay was sensational. Wave after wave of red attack was thwarted as the home side 'ooo'ed' and 'aaahed' every single tackle looking to curry favour from Mr Klein.

On twenty-four the Rhinos scored the first try ofthe game when a Burrow grubber from left in front of the sticks was collected by McGuire in full flight and scored as he landed beside the sticks. Sinfield goaled for 6-2 but it didn't quiet the vociferous Hull support.


Ouch

It was already clear that this would be a low scoring game, and with both sides putting their all into defence it looked like handling errors in possession may well be the determining factor.

On the half-hour mark KR edged closer with a second Cooke penalty from in-front, this time after a Sinfield high-tackle, although Klein seemed to be turning a blind eye to more than he was punishing. It was the last points of the half as once again defences took control.


Try Time
Leeds opened the second half well, now with the wind blowing in their favour. A superb Tansey 40-20 was capitalised on when from the scrum Toopi crashed over off a short ball, right next to the sticks. The Sinfield conversion was a formality and we had our noses eight points in front at 12-4.

With fourteen minutes of the game remaining, and most of us checking our watches and looking for an early exit, Webb stepped out of two tackles and broke down field before finding Tansey on his right shoulder to receive the ball and slide over under the sticks. Sinfield converted for 18-4.

There was no was back for the home side and despite Netherton scoring against his old employers after Gene had gone close, the Cooke goal only brough KR back within eight at 18-10. The final hooter sounded the victory for the Rhinos and relief for the drowned supporters who headed for the shelter of their cars.

This was not a classic performance, but given the conditions the lads defended well and ground out a good win. Ashley Klein looked as though he was trying to make amends for 'Millenniumgate' by penalising us off the park but we kept our cool and didn't let the East Stand 'boo' boys get to us. Watch out Saints, your whingers crown could be going to the East Riding this year.

One note of concern was Gaz Ellis who is understod to have dislocated two knuckles, hopefully it isn't enough to keep him out of next weeks return to Headingley.

Well played lads, I'm off to sit around the fire with a warm drink!
