Three In A Row
Posted by Number 2 on July 20 2007 - 18:38:23

Opening Try
By Matthew Horton

THe Rhinos entertained Wakefield in the cutrain raiser to the big game at Headingley looking to snap their 2 game losing run after defeats to Bradford and Wigan.

Wakefield arrived with a strong looking team indlucing Waine Pryce, French international Maxime Gréseque, former Rhinos Jason Golden and the March twins.

It was sure to be a big test for the young Rhinos line up.

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

Three In A Row

Despite starting with only 12 men on the pitch after Michael Haley had to get his arm restrapped, Leeds scored on their opening set. Mike Ratu with the defence splitting break, he found Kyle Briggs who put Lee Smith in at the corner. After the problems with the boot last week, Kyle Briggs converted from the touchline to put the Rhinos 6-0 up.

Wakefield then took control of the game, helped by Rhinos errors and iniscipline they were camped in the Rhinos half and they took advantage in the 13th minute. Full back Arron Murphy joining the line to hit the pass from Gréseque at speed to go in at the corner. Gréseque couldn't convert but the gap was down for two points.

The Wildcats were on a roll and took the lead 4 minutes later. Another penalty gave the Wildcats field postition and Dale Ferguson took Kyle Bibb's inside pass to power his way over. Gréseque added the extras to give the visitors a 10-6 lead.

The game went into a lull, as the rain began to pour the errors began to become a factor in the game. This didn't hamper the Wildcats and they extended their lead 4 minutes before half time. Good handling skills saw Paul March break through the line. Kyle Wood was on his shoulder and he went in under the posts to make Gréseque's conversion a formality, opening up a 16-6 lead for the Wildcats.

Crucially the Rhinos hit back on the last play of the half. Ben Jones-Bishop with a weaving run before finding Michael Brown, he found Jodie Broughton and he slid in at the corner as the Wildcats defence was stretched. Kyle Briggs was unable to convert but it meant the Rhinos went into the break only 4 points behind.

Wakefield then hit first in the second half with 13 minutes on the clock. The Rhinos were guilty of losing the ball just in front of the try line. Front the scrum the ball was moved to Arron Murphy, he went across the field before throwing a dummy to fool the Leeds defenders and slide in at the corner. Gréseque converted and the gap was back to 10 points.

The visitors went further ahead with 17 minutes to go, Leeds trying to attack from deep. Jason Hart was unable to handle a long pass, the ball popped up for Scott Watson and he had the speed to get ocer the line. Gréseque's conversion was off target and the visitors looked to have the two points in the bag with their 26-10 lead.

With 8 minutes to go the Wilcats extended their lead again after Maxime Gréseque converted the Widcat's 10th penalty of the game from 38 metres out. That took the score to 28-10 and now there was no way back for the Rhinos.

Wakefield put the icing on the cake with the last play of the game. Kyle Wood splitting the RHinos defence and Arron Murphy was on hand to cross for his hat trick. Gréseque converted to take the final score 34-10 in favour of the Wildcats

Experience told in the end, Wakefield's old head in the March brothers and Maxime Gréseque controlled the game. The Rhinos didn't help themselves, despite the efforts of Nick Scruton and Michael Haley. Too many penalties and unforced errors not helping their cause at all. Wakefield took full advantage of this and fully deserved their win to inflict a third straight defeat on the Rhinos.
