Another Pussy Riot
Posted by southstander on April 11 2014 - 23:29:33

The Boss

For the second time in five days the Rhinos faced near neighbours Wakefield Wildcats, the Rhinos hoping for a repeat of last Sundays big win, the Wildcats praying that they made a better show of it.

Leeds had the luxury of resting McGuire, Hardaker and Delaney while Richard Agar was forced into a handful of changes by injury.

The omens were good for Leeds but this was just the type of banana skin which we've slipped on in the past.

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

Superleague XIX - Round 8

11th April 2014

Another Pussy Riot

The opening exchanges were much like they had been the previous Sunday. The Rhinos were in command, but the Wildcats were holding out well in defence. It had taken almost a quarter of the game to break the deadlock in the previous encounter, but tonight it took just eight minutes.

A clever Sinfield cross-field kick was parried back by Hall in flight and into the hands of Moon who made a half break before finding the young scrum-half Liam Sutcliffe in support to cross unopposed. Sinfield was good with the boot, as he would be with all his kicks on the night, and the Rhinos had a 6-0 lead.

On thirteen we were easing ourselves into the scoring pattern and planing like a team full of confidence. Some magical passing saw the Rhinos advance downfield and put Burrow in the perfect position on the last to put in a cross-field kick, once again to Halls wing. As the ball went into the goal area Hall rose above his opposite number to catch the ball in full flight and ground as he landed. Sinfields touchline conversion made it 12-0.


Leeds Opener
It took another ten minutes for the next Leeds try, and this one was a belting passing move as Watkins broke, found Achurch who went thirty metres fending off the tackles before a lovely inside ball to Briscoe to round under the sticks and make the skippers kick a formality.

Then disaster as Ben Jones-Bishop, in at full-back for Hardaker, was dumped on his back while running from a twenty-metre tap and stayed down. A long break in play was necessary as the Rhinos youngster was stretchered off and down the tunnel, hopefully with no serious injury.

The Rhinos looked stunned by the loss and it took until a couple of minutes before the break to extend the lead. Sinfield found Moon who did all the work in drawing the defenders before passing inside for Ablett to carry his tacklers over the line and ground the ball. Sinfields extras gave the Rhinos a very comfortable 24-0 lead at the hooter.

The Wildcats had put up a better defensive effort and made far fewer mistakes than last week. It was harder work for Leeds, but we were still in total control.

Despite field and ball it took almost twenty minutes of the second half to build on the lead, but it was worth the wait as it was celebration boy Jamie Peacock who touched down a Burrow grubber with one-hand to grab a cheeky four-pointer which seemed to surprise the great man as much as his team-mates and supporters. Sinfield made it 30-0 and we were 'home and hosed'.

Just after the hour mark some nice Leeds build up saw a Sinfield inside ball to Clarkson who went through a gap unchallenged and brought up the Rhinos sixth converted try of the night.

Referee Stokes was now looking for any opportunity to spare the Wildcats a 'nilling' and it was Sammut who benefitted from a half-way penalty to scamper through a broken Rhinos line and score a try which he converted himself to save a small amount of face.


Massive

The Rhinos had the last say, and it was Rob Burrow who had once again excelled for the full eighty. With three minutes left he weaved his way through a tired Wildcats defence to go twenty and score by the posts. Sinfields golden boot made it 42-6 and the Rhinos had inflicted a second consecutive massacre on our near neighbours.

Wakefield were definitely better, but still poor. Leeds never needed to get out of low gears and while we could have scored more points, we've got a big Easter weekend coming up and we desperately need to emerge the other side with all four points.

Next up, the Bulls, let's hope we can embarrass them!
