The Danny McGuire Show
Posted by southstander on May 23 2010 - 21:29:39

Sensational
On the most sweltering of afternoons the Rhinos took the field against their fiercest of local rivals without injured Peacock, Burrow and Lauitit'iti and the suspended Webb. The Bulls had their own problems with the Aussie half-back pairing of Kearney and Orford.

This was a massive game for both sides with the Bulls looking to cement fourth spot, and the Rhinos looking to pinch it off them. This had every chance of being a summer cracker.

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

The Danny McGuire Show

With the game just three minutes old the Oldslum corner caught out Lee Smith as he criminally allowed a Sykes kick to bounce in goal and Whitehead got his hand to the ball to touch down. Sykes slid the extras to the left of the posts.

On thirteen the Rhinos were back in it, on the last tackle. A superb flat pass from Sinfield found Delaney who passed out to Scott Donald to go twenty metres down the right wing before passing back inside to McGuire to motor over in the corner. Sinfield missed the conversion but the scores were level at 4-4.

Bang on twenty-minutes poor Rhinos tackling let the Bulls in again when a crossfield kick form Sykes was collected on the full by Platt who spun out of two tackles to score under the sticks. Sykes added the extras and the home side were up at 4-10.

On twenty-five the Bulls should have been in again but Reardon dropped the ball five metres out with the line begging. A lucky Rhinos escape.

On twenty-seven it was honours even again. Smith had been held up on the fifth tackle and from the last Sinfield chipped the ball over the top for a diving McGuire to catch on the full and score. Sinfield converted Danny sensational try and once again we were level at 10-10.


Brilliant
On thirty minutes Sykes should have been in after McGuire spilled the ball ten from the Bulls line but Kirke tracked Sykes and dragged him down on the Leeds twenty, picking up an injury in doing so.

A minute later and a Sykes kick bounced high over Donald and Nero collected the ball to score. Silverwood refered the decision to the video referee who saw a push by Nero on Donlad and ruled out the try. Out of jail twice in a minute.

After soaking up the Bulls pressure the Rhinos went downfield and a kcik to the corner from McGuire was collected by Hall, flung outside to Senior, who burrowed over in the corner. The partisan home support didn't like it, but despite Sinfield missing the coversion we were 14-10 up. From looking like we would be four down, now we were four up.

Right on the hooter Pitts conceeded a penalty after he dived on the ball after not being square and Sykes slotted over the extras. We were up 14-12 at half-time, and deserved it for our defensive effort.

With the second half two minutes old the Rhinos benefitted from a Sheriffe knock-on when the ball was moved wide right and Delaney went over from ten metres with a couple of tacklers attached. Sinfield added the extras and there was daylight at 20-12.

On fifty, Sheriffe failed to take in a high pass with the line begging, it almost looked like the Bulls were playing themselves...and losing.

On fifty-three Sinfield kicked to Sheriffes corner on the last, McGuire collected a Hall palm back and as he was tackled on the line he managed to stretch out one handed and touch-down for his would-be hat-trick try. Silverwood referred it upstairs and the enigmatic Alibert for some reason ruled out a perfectly good try. Not for the first time this season.


Gamebreaker

On fifty-six fast hands from Leeds saw Hall in at the corner, once again Silverwood ruled out the try, without explanation. Was the tide turning away from Leeds, along with Silverwood?

On the hour Danny finally got the hat-trick. He took the ball on half-way from a sensational falling offload from Eastwood. Danny out-footed Halley to go under the sticks. Sinfield goaled for 26-12 and after two wrongly disallowed tries, we had finally opened up a decent margin of fourteen points.

With ten minutes left on the clock Lynch went close but lost the ball when grounding it six inches short.

Two minutes from the end and Lee Smith kicked a forty-twenty. With a minute left on the fourth tackle the ball was moved right and Smith chipped over but lost the ball in the act of scoring. The clock ran down and the Rhinos secured a great win, keeping the Bulls scoreless in the second half.

In the end this was a comfortable win despite the best efforts of Alibert and Silverwood to come up with several works of fiction to try and keep the Bulls in the game.

Danny McGuire was sensational today and both Diskin and Eastwood made a massive difference when they came on. Once again we appeared to lose a couple of players with Kirke and Burgess both picking up knocks. The Rhinos recouperation room will be busy again this week ahead of saturdays massive clash against the Warriors in the Challenge Cup.
