Bradford Bulls 22 Leeds Rhinos 42

3rd May 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos produced a dominant first half display, leading 30-6 at the break, to secure a memorable derby day win over Bradford Bulls at the Provident Stadium.

Leeds fought back to snatch a draw in Danny McGuire's testimonial in pre-season whilst it was the Bulls who rallied to pinch a point at Headingley Carnegie at Easter.

Bradford recall centre Matty Blythe, who has missed the last eight matches with ankle and back problems, with Adrian Purtell set to switch to the wing in place of Michael Platt. Second-rower John Bateman is expected to recover from a wrist injury sustained in Sunday's defeat at Warrington.

Leeds welcome back prop Ryan Bailey, who has completed a four-match ban, but they are without second-rower Stevie Ward, who dislocated his shoulder in last Sunday's win at Hull KR. It will be a special night for Kevin Sinfield and Kylie Leuluai as they make their 450th and 200th appearanes respectively for the Rhinos.

The Rhinos dominated the clash from the kick off and caught have scored with the first set of the game when a clever break by Watkins and cross field kick from the winger nearly presented Danny McGuire with an opportunity to score between the posts.

As it was Leeds only had to wait until the sixth minute to open the scoring with a sensational 70 metre break by Watkins. He raced through the defence, rounded full back Brett Kearney and then eluded a desperate tap tackle to score. Sinfield added the conversion.

Mitch Achurch, restored to the starting line up in place of the injured Stevie Ward, then created a great chance as he burst clear but, having drawn the last man, his offload went to the deck and the opportunity was gone.

However, the towering Australian was not going to be denied a minute later when he finished off a great flowing move following a perfectly timed ball from Jamie Jones-Buchanan to Brett Delaney who burst clear. The half backs kept the ball alive and Achurch had a clear run to the line. Sinfield was again on target to increase the lead to 12-0.

Bradford finally found their feet after those early blows and came back strongly at Leeds, forcing a repeat set on one occasion, and producing a great solo effort from Jarrod Sammut soon after which was ruined by a needless obstruction by one of his team-mates and Leeds immediately worked their way upfield, where Ablett took Rob Burrow's pass as first receiver to go over for his first try.

A magnificent try-saving tackle by winger Elliott Kear on Hardaker kept the Bulls' interest alive and prop Ben Evans gave them renewed hope on 29 minutes when he took Heath L'Estrange's short pass to crash over for his first try for the club on his home debut.

Sammut's goal made it 18-6 but Leeds took the game away from their hosts with two further tries in the last five minutes of the first half.

Hooker Paul McShane burst clear moments after entering the action to get McGuire over and Bailey used his brute force his way over, having earlier been denied a try by video referee Steve Ganson.

At 30-6, there was no realistic way back for the Bulls but L'Estrange's long pass got Kear over for a try six minutes into the second half, and six minutes later full-back Brett Kearney dummied his way over for his 11th of the season.

Sammut kicked his second goal to cut the deficit to a manageable 14 points but Hardaker finally ended their hopes on 64 minutes when he wriggled out of a two-man tackle to stretch out for Leeds' sixth try.

Sinfield then worked Ablett over for his second try straight from a scrum 10 metres out and maintained his 100 per cent record with his seventh conversion.

Bradford did manage a consolation try in the final minute after it looked like the Rhinos would restrict them to just two scores. Eventually the pressure mounted and Kear went over for his second try in the last minute and Sammut kicked his third goal.
