The Rhinos defeated Hull FC 62-0 in their last outing and they will be hoping for a repeat of that success this weekend.
The Senior Academy had a big win on their last outing as they defeated Hull 62-0 with Jordan Tansey scoring 22 points and Jodie Broughton bagging four tries. The Rhinos got off to a perfect start after only 3 minutes when Danny Williams sent Jodie Broughton over for his first try. Six minutes later and the lead was extended, Kyle Briggs going over this time before Mike Ratu showed great strength to get out of a 3 man tackle to fall over the line. After 20 minutes, Williams collected Tansey's grubber kick to score and Tansey's conversion extended the lead to 22-0. Michael Haley then charged into the Hull defensive line and a superb offload allowed Jodie Broughton to get his second try of the game. Leeds struck again just before half time, when Jordan Tansey charged a kick down by Ryan Steen. The ball nestled in his grasp and we went 60 metres to score, his conversion was off target but the Rhinos went into half time 32 points to the good. The Rhinos carried on where they left off and crossed with the second half only three minutes old, a neat kick through form Kyle Briggs was pounced on in the in goal by Michael Brown who just managed to touch down. Leeds powered on and scored on their next set, a good cut out pass from Luke Gale found Jodie Broughton and he showed great power to get down the South Stand touchline to cross for his hat-trick. Leeds got their third try of the second half with 53 minutes on the clock, when Wayne Reittie put Broughton over for his fourth try. Tansey was the provider for the next try as Wayne Reittie showed great pace to collect his kick and go over. Hull then had their best chance to score with 10 minutes left, on the last tackle they had an overlap but it was a poor pass and Wayne Reittie collected to go 90 metres. Tansey converted to make the winning margin 62-0. The ISC Sponsored SouthStander.com Man of the Match went to Michael Haley for his dominance up front.
We received a lovely email this morning from the dad of a family who attended the St Helens game on Monday night that we would like to share with you because it shows the unique atmosphere you help create here on match nights at Headingley Carnegie.
