Back in Action
By Matthew Horton

After the horrendous conditions two weeks ago in Hull, summer arrived at Headingley Carneige as the Senior Academy took on Warrington in the curtain raiser. Good news for the Rhinos as Nick Scruton made his return from injury.

We bring you all of the action here......

Rampant Rhinos Tame Wolves

Leeds opened the scoring in the 8th minute, a break down the South Stand side by Ryan Hall creating the space, Simon Worrall was in support and Kyle Briggs was on hand to touch down by the posts to put the Rhinos ahead. Leeds then struck again within three tackles of the kick off. Danny Williams with the break to put the Rhinos 10 metres away from the line, the ball was moved left and Tom Burton joined the line perfectly to cross over the tryline, Briggs added both goals to suddenly put the Rhinos 12-0 up.

Leeds then lost Nick Scruton for ten minutes after he was sin binned for a late hit on Anthony Rourke. The Wolves took immediate advantage, making the most of the advantage to send Richie Barnett in at the corner. Andy Moulsdale's conversion was off target to bring the Wolves within 8 points.

The man disadvantage didn't hamper the Rhinos though, the ball moved to the left and a long cut out ball from Michael Brown found Mike Ratu and he went over in the corner. The conversion from Briggs was superb to extend the Rhinos lead to 18-4.

It got even better for Leeds in the 27th minute, after a high kick from Luke Gale into the corner. Danny Williams outjumped a confidence sapped Richie Barnett, he found Steve Brook in support who in turn sent Jodie Broughton over by the posts. Briggs converted to extend the lead to 24-4.

The Rhinos hit the Wolves with a killer blow just before half time, after a Warrington error gave the Rhinos field position the ball was moved to the right and it was Michael Brown again who found Mike Ratu, and the centre stepped his way over the line. Briggs missed his first conversion of the game to leave the Rhinos 28-4 in front at the break.

Leeds then got the perfect start to the second half, Tom Burton making a break from the kick off the set the Rhinos up. The Warrington defence was at sixes and sevens as the ball was moved right and Jodie Broughton stepped through to go over by the posts. Briggs converted, Leeds were 30 points ahead and surely the competition points were in the bag.

The Wolves were not going to give up and they hit back 5 minutes later, Craig White splitting the Rhinos defence to send Andy Mousdale over by the posts. Martin Ridyard took over the kicking duties and tagged on the conversion to bring the score back to 34-10 in favour of the Rhinos.

That setback didn't deter the Rhinos, and the hit back again. The ball moved to the short side and quick hands from Luke Gale and Ryan Hall created the space for Mike Ratu to cross for his hat-trick try. Briggs conversion just shaved the outside of the upright to leave the Rhinos 38-10 ahead.

Warrington then had a sustained amount of pressure on the Leeds line, but after Richie Barnett lost the ball over the line Leeds struck again. The ball moved to the right, a bullet pass from Ratu released Ryan Hall down the North Stand touchline. Hall could have scored himself but passed the ball back inside to the supporting Ratu who picked up his fourth try of the game. Briggs converted to put the Rhinos 44-10 ahead.

The Wolves fire had been extinguished and Leeds struck again. Another kick from Luke Gale aimed at Richie Barnett was plucked out of the air by Danny Williams as he touched down in the corner. Briggs conversion was successful to take the Rhinos to the 50 point mark with 7 minutes to go.

Leeds were not finished, Michael Haley ghosting through the Warrington defence when returning the kick off. He had Simon Worrall in support, it looked like he was going to get over but Tom Burton was on hand to go under the posts. Briggs again converted to take the lead to 56-10.

Superb performance from the Rhinos. Luke Gale and Kyle Briggs were the catalyst for this superb attacking display. Nick Scruton looked strong on his return to action and Michael Haley's strong running again a stand out feature. Mike Ratu helped himself to a 4 try haul and Tom Burton impressed in the unaccustomed role of full back. The ISC Sponsored SouthStander.com man of the match went to Paul McShane.
