Late Try Avalanche Crushes Robins
Posted by southstander on July 11 2014 - 23:43:52

Stunning Return

The biggest cheer of the pre-match was reserved for the returning Rob Burrow. After three months on the sidelines Superleagues smallest player, with one of the biggest talents, was back in blue and amber and raring to go.

Sinfield and Ablett were also back into a side which saw Delaney named at prop, Ablett in the second row and impressive youngster Walters at loose forward.

The visitors were flying high on the back of a sensational win over the league leaders in their last outing. Everything was set for a cracker, but it took an age to explode.

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

Late Try Avalanche Crushes Robins

The Robins, cheered on by an impressive travelling support in the western terrace, set out their stall early. They were going to hit us hard and the timing would be secondary. In the fourth minute Lovegrove launched an awful looking tackle on Jones-Bishop as he went for a high kick, the result was a lengthy break while the KR player was offered the stretcher and then helped from the field. After some treatment the Rhinos full-back dusted himself off and got back on with the game.

On ten it looked like the Robins had the games opener but Jones-Bishop, aided by two other Leeds tacklers, held the KR attacker on his back.

On fourteen it seemed like McGuire had made a break and only needed to reach down to score but he had the ball stolen on the line and after almost forty minutes of stalemate the Rhinos looked to have scored through Briscoe by referee Bentham pulled back play for a forward pass.

Forty minutes had passed with neither line being breached, mostly due to good defence but also a fair share of errors and dropped balls.

And it didn't get much better in the second half as minute after minute passed with neither side looking like scoring. I was beginning to wonder whether I was going to witness my first ever draw.


100%
On fifty-nine minutes the game sprang to life and exploded into a try frenzy.

Benefitting from a KR accidental offside Leeds used their tackles to work to the line when Burrow darted from acting half and jinked twice before touching down under the sticks making his skippers conversion a simple one.

On sixty-two we struck for a second time when a nice running/passing move involving Sinfield, Briscoe and Watkins set Sutcliffe free to round the posts and give Sinfield a simple conversion.

To cap a sensational five minute spell we went over again on sixty-four when a nice McGuire grubber kick was touched down by Ablett, winning the race to the ball, although it did look from my angle that he may well have been in touch before grounding the ball. Sinfield goaled and in the space of five short minutes we'd amasses an eighteen point lead.

The main goal would now surely to keep the visitors scoreless, but they had different ideas.

On sixty-eight Hodgson stepped from acting half-back, mesmerised the Leeds defence, and stepped over without a hand being laid on him. Burns added the extras and with just twelve minutes left the game was back on.

But we needn't have worried. On seventy-four Sinfield made a great break down the centre of the field and found Danny McGuire in support to cross and three minutes from the hooter a brilliant solo try from Rob Burrow, breaking from the half-way line, sealed the two points and one of the most bizarre 30-6 victories that you are ever likely to witness.


Scoring Return

We've really missed Sinfield and Burrow in the last few weeks and I'm certain that the Catalans wouldn't have been such a nailbiter, nor the Wakefield game such a disappointment if we'd had at least one of them in the side.

That said there was some awful aundisciplined rugby in the opening hour, redeemed only by a sensational last twenty minutes.

KR were unlucky, they didn't deserve to loose by such a large margin for the effort that they put in. But I'm glad they did and that we've another two points in the bank with seven regular rounds remaining.
