Virtuoso Burrows Conducts Rhinos Symphony
Posted by southstander on April 28 2013 - 22:10:44

Superb
by Phil Caplan

A virtuoso Rob Burrow performance – his best of the campaign - allied to some outstanding own-quarter defence, saw the Rhinos pick up a comfortable win in East Hull, on a ground they have struggled at since Rovers’ re-introduction to the top flight.

Seven different try scorers among their eight touchdowns, four in each half, illustrated the Rhinos’ across the board contribution; Joel Moon, Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Zak Hardaker others to impress.

There was also the now seemingly inevitable Kevin Sinfield landmark, his third conversion bringing up his 1,500th two-point goal, part of an imperious kicking game in a strong wind.

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

Virtuoso Burrows Conducts Rhinos Symphony

The only down side was the loss of Stevie Ward in the early stages with a badly dislocated shoulder which did not immediately go back in.

Settled Leeds Rhinos, unchanged from last week’s win over Castleford in the Cup, are motoring ominously at the almost at half way stage, not least because of their miserly defence; their handling of Rovers’ chief architect Michael Dobson near exemplary, Carl Ablett the harasser in chief.

The hosts, missing Craig Hall but including on loan signing from Huddersfield, Luke George in the centre, made the better start with the elements in their favour.

Dobson and Cory Paterson looked a productive route and produced the first clean break but a penalty for dissent, after Ablett had, bizarrely, headed the ball gave Leeds possession, Jones-Buchanan and Moon combining only for Kallum Watkins to spill Sinfield’s cross kick into space.

There was a reprieve from the resulting scrum, George knocking on from it and Danny McGuire, Sinfield and Hardaker making the home side pay from their put in, sweeping the ball wide for Ryan Hall to prove characteristically unstoppable in the corner.


Record Breaker
Sinfield missed the conversion and, after Dobson had put the ball out on the full, Hardaker was just denied when failing to connect with a McGuire grubber.

David Hodgson was forced into conceding a drop out from Sinfield’s accurate kick after Brett Delaney, Watkins, Burrow, McGuire and Jamie Peacock had handled.

Rhinos continued to dominate, Hall just short after McGuire and Moon had exploited the blind side on the last; Delaney then penalised for a late challenge after Dobson had kicked.

From it, and a delay after George Griffin was helped off, Paterson powered over from Dobson’s short ball, the Rovers skipper adding the conversion.

Leeds twice forced drop outs but Moon spilt a Mitch Achurch offload, Josh Hodgson with a 40 metre break in response.

Travis Burns wasted the chance putting the ball out on the full and, as the home fans ire with the officials increased, back to back penalties put Leeds in prime position.

Paul McShane recollected his own ricocheted grubber on the last and fed Sinfield who put Delaney in by the posts just before the half hour, Sinfield goaling.Ablett broke clear and Sinfield was just caught, George cleverly chipping over for himself, gathering and scorching away, Watkins covering back.

Greg Eden – with another marmite performance – was called back when clear because of obstruction to further inflame the home supporters, Sinfield and Achurch finding Moon who kept his balance impressively, Burrow grubbering for Hardaker to dot down, Sinfield adding the extras.

Twice more in succession Rovers were penalised, the second for an off the ball charge, Leeds perhaps surprisingly choosing not to tap with a minute left in the half but justified when Achurch took McShane’s short ball to go over from close in.

Sinfield’s conversion attempt hit the post and the half ended 20-6.


Two Tries

Within four minutes of the re-start the contest was effectively won, Ablett freeing Moon who, with support on either side, sold an outrageous dummy to Eden and made the line, Sinfield with the historic kick.

Leeds, ahead 6-2 in the penalty count in the first half, lost the second 8-2 but soaked up the self imposed pressure superbly to blunt the home go-forward.

Burrow toyed, McGuire led a breakout fielding a Dobson grubber and only an Eden interception of a Chris Clarkson pass prevented Burrow going over.

With 12 minutes to go, Sinfield’s superb kick forced a drop out; McShane on the run-around with Peacock, Clarkson and Ablett putting Watkins in at the corner, Sinfield with the touchline conversion.

Sinfield’s 40-20 set up the next try, McShane and enforcer Kylie Leuluai with a nice drop off allowing Ian Kirke to reach over by the posts exactly two years to the day since his previous Super League touchdown.

Leeds were twice pinged and Eden with a slide rule kick to the corner found Omari Caro for a consolation try but Watkins saved his best to last.

From a Rovers scrum on the Leeds 20, Paterson kicked to the Leeds winger and he went on a thrilling 80 metre burst brushing off four would be tacklers for an exceptional solo effort, Sinfield landing his sixth goal as the hooter went to make it 44-10.

There was the strangest of sights in the 51st minute when the main stand gave a standing ovation for the spotting of a Leeds forward pass.

Although the HKR fans continually looked to referee Robert Hicks, their own mistakes proved to be their undoing; that and inscrutable opponents.
