Rhinos Stay Unbeaten In Style

Try Scorer
12 months ago this very weekend, I was at Wilderspool watching the corresponding fixture between the two clubs, it was a scorcher of a day. That hot I actually dared leave the house with shorts on.

Turn then clock forward 12 months and it was a cold, overcast and damp afternoon that greeted the two sides for the curtain raiser to the engage Super League clash. Danny Williams and Ben Kaye moved up to the first team but Danny Allan started at stand off as the Rhinos looked to keep their 100% record intact.

Rhinos Stay Unbeaten in Style

Leeds started strongly, Paul McShane was denied on the opening Leeds set of the game when he was held up over the line. The next time they were in the Warrington 20 they were over the line. Danny Allan with the powerful run and his offload found Liam Brown and the second rower only had to fall over the line to claim the try in the corner. Simon Brown was off target with the kick but the Rhinos held an early 4 point advantage.

The Rhinos were then denied twice, first a try for Danny Allan was ruled out for a forward pass, then Luke Hardbottle lost the ball over the line after scooting from dummy half. Then it was the turn of the visitors to be denied, Mike Johnson being held just short before Josh Cullen was held up over the line. Then the Rhinos went to the other end of the pitch and Chris Clarkson and Jodie Broughton both went close.

The Rhinos extended their lead in the 21st minutes, the Wolves defence was caught short on the left hand side. A long ball from Simon Brown found Danny Allan, his quick pass released Kallum Watkins and he sent Ben Collins in at the corner. Leeds made it two tries in a minute, Paul McShane breaching the defensive line with a strong bust from dummy before an offload out of the back door found Joe Howey and the second rower slid over by the posts. Simon Brown was able to convert the second try to take the Rhinos lead to 14-0.

It was one way traffic as Leeds struck for the third consecutive set, Kallum Watkins with a break from the kick off to give Leeds field position before a superb pass from McShane released Jodie Broughton and he unselfishly sent Simon Brown in for the Rhinos fourth try. He added the conversion to his own try and in the space of 7 minutes the gap was suddenly 20 points.

The weather had turned awful with the Rhinos playing into driving rain. It heralded the best spell of pressure for the visitors with Alex Thompson going close for the Wolves on a number of occasions. Warrington should have scored when they had a three man overlap but Anthony Jerram dropped the ball with the line at his mercy and Jodie Broughton picked up the loose ball to go 90 metres and score under the posts, it was cruel on the Wolves and against the run of play at the time. Simon Brown converted to take the Rhinos into a 26 point half time lead.

The sun came out during the half time interval and after finishing the first half with a flourish the Rhinos began the second half the same way they finished the first. After a penalty put the Rhinos deep into Warrington territory they struck on the fourth tackle of the set when Paul McShane barged his way over from dummy half. Simon Brown added the extras to take the Rhinos 32-0 ahead.

It took the Rhinos another 12 minutes to extend their lead, after a kick downfield from a 20 metre restart was claimed by Ben Jones-Bishop only 10 metres from the Warrington line, Ben Collins went from dummy half and went across field, despite a hint of an obstruction he stepped his way over the line for his second try of the game. Simon Brown added the conversion to secure the two points for the Rhinos and their 100% record so far.

It was all one way traffic and the Rhinos extended their lead. Danny Allan split the Wolves line with a wonderful step but just lost his footing and fell short of the line. The ball was moved quickly left and Mathew Fox found Kallum Watkins and he went over to keep his record of scoring in every game this season. Simon Brown was unable to convert but the Rhinos now led 42-0.

Warrington were their own worst enemies, two penalties allowing the Rhinos deep into their own half and they were made to pay for their errors. Danny Allan again splitting the Warrington defence and his offload allowed Joe Chandler to go in under the posts. Simon Brown converted and the Rhinos were in sight of the fifty point mark. With seven minutes left the Rhinos breached the 50 point barrier. A kick into the in goal from Anthony Rouke was claimed by Ryan Hall right on the dead ball line, he managed to avoid a couple of challenges and set off up field to outpace Scott Leatherbarrow and Matty Blythe to touch down by the posts. Then on the next set the impressive Allan released Joe Howey from 40 metres out and the second rower showed great pace to claim his second try. Simon Brown converting both to put the Rhinos 60 points clear.

Leeds weren't finished, Jodie Broughton getting on the outside of some tired Warrington defenders and Danny Allan was on hand to take the offload to go under the posts and claim a well deserved try. Brown converted to complete the scoing and give Leeds a 66-0 victory to maintain their 100% record.

After the close encounter against the Warriors last week it was a superb performance from a young Rhinos team. It would be unfair to single any player out in particular but special mention must go to Paul McShane and Danny Allan who were behind everything that the Rhinos did well in some pretty difficult conditions. The man of the match award went to prop Joe Chandler.
