No Disaster in WCC Warm Up
Posted by southstander on February 11 2012 - 21:51:28

Try Scorer
The Rhinos header over to the DW Stadium to take on the winless Warriors in what was essentially a warm-up game for next weekends World Club Challenge against Manly Sea Eagles.

A late injury to Kallum Watkins meant that he was replaced in the centres by Carl Ablett, and Hauraki was moved from the bench to loose forward causing Clarkson to hand over the water bottles. The home side were missing Farrell and Carmont, but with Alibert in the middle, anything could happen.

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

Superleague XVII - Round 2

11th February 2012

No Disaster in WCC Warm Up

It was a good crowd and a great atmosphere with plenty of Rhinos fans braving the freezing conditions to make the journey.

Leeds got out of jail early when what looked like a good try down the right wing by Charnley was ruled out by the video referee for an obstruction on Jones-Buchanan. An early let-off.

On fifteen minutes the Warriors made the most out of their early dominance with Charnley going over after beating Hall and wrong-footing Brent Webb. Richards added a simple kick, and the home side had a 6-0 lead.

As the half-hour approached Hauraki and McIlorum got into it on the half way line and Alibert gave Wigan the penalty. Wigan took full advantage of Hauraki's mistake and Charnley found space down the right wing to cross again. Richards added the extras from the touchline for 0-12. Wigan had soaked up some good Leeds pressure, but we'd nothing to show for it.


Hard Worker
On thirty-five it looked like we were in. A Hall break and pass inside was hacked forward and chased by Burrow, but Alibert ruled a forward pass when it was quite obviously backwards. Leeds were hard done by.

With a minute of the half remaining, Finch went for a drop goal but slid the ball wide. Leeds returned and ran down the clock to take a twelve point deficit into half-time.

We were deservedly behind, but had been on the receiving end of a couple of erratic Alibert decisions. We were still in the game and it was all to play for in the second half.

Nine minutes into the second half and the Rhinos were on the back foot and getting battered. A high gang-tackle by Griffin and Peacock gave Richards an easy two pointer to make it 0-14 and we were looking up against it. We didn't seem to have an answer to Wigans' questions.

Fifty-fiuve minutes and at last the Rhinos made it over the Wigan whitewash. A Sinfield offload almost saw Webb over. The next play-the-ball and Burrow gave Griffin an inside pass to crash over and score next to the sticks. Sinfield added the extras for 6-14.

Fifteen minutes to go and Charnley completed his hat-trick to give Wigan the game. Leeds had been forced to drop out and Wigan moved the ball right with Charnley finding himself on the overlap. Richards slotted over the conversion from the touchline for 6-20.


No way through

Both sides had chances in the remainder of the game but decent defensive efforts coupled with some dodgy decision making with the ball in hand meant that we'd not see any more points scoring action. Leeds finished on the attack, but we just couldn't break the line again.

We had plenty of chances tonight but had a case of the dropsy which plagued us at the start of last season. Wigan punished our defence brainstorms, and we looked defensively weak down our left, different to the problem being down the right last week. Wigan had all the ball and most of the field, and we didn't have enough magic to overcome.

We weren't awful, we just weren't great.

Hopefully next week will be a different story.
