Poor Discipline Makes Hulls Day
Posted by southstander on May 05 2012 - 22:17:20

Welcome Return
Illness to roaming loose forward Ryan Bailey meant that Jamie Jones-Buchanan could make his return from injury.

The Rhinos had not lost at the KC for five years, but this was a game against a side sitting above us in the table, but fifth spot beckoned if we could get a result.

We'd won four on the bounce, but some of them had been far from convincing. Everything was crossed for an improvement.

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

Superleague XVII - Round 13

5th May 2012

Poor Discipline Makes Hulls Day

The opening exchanges were tit-for-tat. Hull looked like they were in early but Sharp dropped the ball on the line. On nine minutes Sinfield found Webb who threw a miss-out pass to Jones-Bishop to walk over for a score in the corner. Sinfield missed the conversion from the touchline but it was the start that we wanted, and a 4-0 lead.

Thirteen minutes in and the Rhinos paid the price for ill discipline. Three consecutive penalties (obstructions, holding and ball stealing) and Tickle went over off a Houghton pass to score next to the sticks. Tickle converted his own try for 4-6. All the indications were that it was going to be a tough night.

On sixteen the Rhinos had a lucky escape when Tickle beat McGuire and Hall to a high ball in the Rhinos in goal area. As he grounded the ball he seemed to lose control and the video referee ruled out the try.

When Peacock had the ball stripped in the tackle, the penalty laid the foundation for a Rhinos try. Leeds used all five tackles to move into the FC twenty and a great pass from Sinfield put Ablett through a gap to score. Sinfield added the extras for 10-6.

Nip and tuck.


Leeds Opener
On twenty-five Hull came back again, this time after a nice passing move to the right wing which saw Sharp cross on a one man overlap as Hall went too high in the tackle. Tickle missed the conversion and the game was all square at 10-10.

It took just two minutes for FC to take the lead.

The Leeds defensive line opened up and after a Crooks break, Briscoe romped home from thirty metres. Tickle goaled for 10-16, we need to buck up our ideas.

Exchanges were even for the last ten of the half and the Rhinos went into the half-time break trailing by six. The game was still there for the taking, but there was a feeling that it wouldn't take too much for it to get away from us.

The first scoring action of the second half was on forty-seven after Sinfield threw a poor pass which was intercepted on the FC thirty. Hull broke down field and as the Rhinos struggled to get back and cover, Brent Webb held down too long in the tackle and Tickle kicked the penalty for 10-18.

On fifty-two Webb and Jones-Bishop stopped a certain try when they held Whiting up over the line, but we were under almost relentless pressure.

On fifty-five Lee Smith was harshly penalised for not playing the ball when it looked more like he was being fouled by Lynch. Hull opted to kick the penalty and Tickle slotted over the two and it was 10-20.

On fifty-eight Smith put Webb free to score but Child ruled a forward pass, which no-one else in the ground saw. It looked like it might not be our day.

Another two pointer for Tickle on the hour mark, this time after Leeds interference at the play-the-ball and now we were two converted tries behind.


Ran Hard

On sixty-three a Lunt try was thwarted by a Hull knee as he tried to ground the ball. Leeds used the six tackles and worked the ball left for Webb to throw another miss-out pass for Hall to dive over in the corner. Sinfield slid the ball wide of the left post. At 14-22 the margin still looked too wide.

The result was put beyond doubt on seventy-four when Briscoe broke down the middle and avoided five attempted tackles to score under the sticks and make the Tickle conversion a formality. At 14-28 there was no coming back for Leeds.

On seventy-six Webb lost the ball in the tackle and Crooks ran the angle to stretch over and score. Tickle added the conversion for a scoreline of 14-34 and it was all feeling very embarrassing.

In the last minute the Rhinos snatched a McGuire consolation after a Webb chip was collected brilliantly and scored. Sinfield goaled as the hooter sounded for a final scoreline of 20-34.

The main reason that the Rhinos lost this game was their poor discipline. We gave Tickle the opportunity to kick the goals which put FC beyond us on the scoreboard, and forced us into playing risky catch-up, letting in a couple of soft tries.

There is no denying that Hull FC deserved the win, they hit us hard in defence and found the gaps to make the breaks. But...there were several sub-standard Leeds performances, most notably the skipper who is likely to want to forget about his evening in East Yorkshire.

The only really bright light in an otherwise gloomy performance was the return of Jamie Jones-Buchanan who had a great comeback game, he's very welcome back.

Lets hope for a better performance against Leigh next week.

And Child had a nightmare - for both sides - he's simply not up to it.
