Wakefield Trinity 38 Leeds Rhinos 6

A bitterly disappointing night for the Rhinos at the Beaumont Legal Stadium as they lost out 38-6 to Wakefield Trinity following a nightmare first half when they found themselves 26-6 down at the break.

Wakefield opened the scoring with their first meaningful attack of the game after six minutes. Kyle Wood had the Rhinos back peddling with a dangerous break in midfield and eventually that pressure was turned into points when Joe Arundel evaded the attempted tackle by Danny McGuire and forced his way over. Liam Finn added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead.

The Rhinos came up with the perfect response after that set back and were soon level. The chance came following good work by Adam Cuthbertson and Matt Parcell to get their side going forward. The score came when Danny McGuire perfectly weighted his kick to the in goal and Cuthbertson touched down for his tenth try of the season. Kallum Watkins added the conversion to level the score after 12 minutes.

The game entered a scrappy period after that with both teams guilty of spilling too much ball and inevitably it was an error that presented the next scoring chance. Scott Grix’s kick seemed to be running dead but Ryan Hall and Ashton Golding failed to deal with it and Ben Jones-Bishop nipped between the pair to touch the ball down. Finn added the conversion to make it 12-6.

The lead was extended in the next set when Wood broke through an attempted tackle before drawing the last man and putting Grix away to finish an 80 metre move. Finn added the conversion and a subsequent penalty to put his side into a commanding position at 20-6 in front.

It got even better for the home side with the final play of the half. Having opted for the kick at goal with the previous penalty near the line, with the final set of the first half Trinity opted to run the ball and Finn kicked through low on the last tackle. McGuire could only knock the ball high into the air and when Golding attempted to hit the ball dead, Miller dived through the air to collect the dropping ball and touch it down before it went out of play. Finn added the conversion to cap a miserable first half for the Rhinos as they trailed 26-6 at the break.

The Rhinos needed to score first in the second half to give themselves a chance but the closest they came was when Brad Singleton was held up over the line.

Wakefield produced some tenacious defence and never allowed Leeds to get away from their line. Having kicked consistently to Briscoe’s wing, all of which were well dealt with by the winger, they chased in numbers and forced repeated drop outs. On one such occasion, Golding attempted to get clear but lost possession as he came into the pack of Wakefield defenders and Matty Ashurst was on hand to touch down for the home side. Finn added the conversion to make it 32-6.

Wakefield were denied a try by the video referee when he spotted a double movement by Wood however there was still time left for Trinity to gain another score before the end. It came from a Leeds error and on the free play, Grix kicked behind Watkins. The Leeds man desperately turned and chased before diving out to try and knock the ball dead but he could not get enough on the ball and Bill Tupou picked up to score. Finn kicked the goal to make the final score 38-6.
