Bradford Bulls 6 Leeds Rhinos 46

17th April 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

A hat trick from Ryan Hall and a last minute try from Rob Burrow on his 400th appearance for the club gave the Rhinos the perfect start to Easter.

The Rhinos welcomed back Zak Hardaker at full back with Danny McGuire back in the halves. In the pack, Brad Singleton started in the front row in place of the rested Jamie Peacock, alongside Rob Burrow, who was making his 400th Leeds Rhinos appearance.

Whilst both team’s aspirations for the season lie at dithering ends of the First Utility Super League table, the Rhinos knew they would face a determined Bulls outfit when they made the short journey to the Provident Stadium to kick off the Easter weekend.

The best way to quell any enthusiasm from the home side was for Leeds to score early and they did just that, Kevin Sinfield crossing after just five minutes. The visitors were putting Bradford under pressure and a kick from Danny McGuire on the last tackle rebounded off a pair of legs and straight into the path of Sinfield to touch down. He added the conversion to give his side the perfect springboard.

The Rhinos increased their lead after ten minutes when Joel Moon touched down out wide. The move came from a wide pass by Sinfield out to Ryan Hall, the winger kept his cool as he headed for the corner before passing back inside for Moon to touch down.

The visitors then pressed home their advantage with back to back tries after 13 minutes. The first came from Danny McGuire, who was too quick for the Bulls defence, darting through a gap to score. Sinfield converted that try to make it 16-0.

Immediately from the kick off Leeds were in again. This time a break from Kallum Watkins and Burrow had Bradford back peddling before quick hands along the back line gave Hall space to touch down in the corner. Sinfield pulled his conversion attempt wide but his side now led 20-0.

Bradford finally managed to get a foothold in the game after that fourth try but they rarely threatened the Leeds line. However, a clinical piece of play from Lee Gaskell gave his side hope. The Rhinos looked to be most likely to score next but when Hardaker’s grubber kick rebounded back towards the Leeds line, Gaskell was quickest to react. He picked up the ball and raced 80 metres, chased all the way by Watkins, before just getting to the line before the Leeds man got to him. Luke Gale added the conversion to give the home fans hope at 20-6.

Francis Cummins’ side had their best period of the game after that as they attacked the Leeds through a clever break from Luke Gale. However, the chance came to nothing when Gaskell threw the ball behind his team mates and into touch and Bradford were unable to regain the momentum again.

The second half started with a tight period of play with both teams content to complete their sets out and keep the pressure on their opposite numbers. Leeds finally got a break through after 51 minutes after Briscoe was denied a try. The Rhinos did get the scrum and from a set move, space was opened up for Hall to score out wide.

The England man then completed his hat trick ten minutes later. Once again, Briscoe created the chance with a break down the right. Bradford desperately tried to stem the flow of the attack but good running from Moon drew in the last defenders and gave Hall a simple run in. Sinfield kicked the touchline conversion with his final piece of action before earning a rest for the final twenty minutes.

The Rhinos finished strongly with three tries in the final quarter. The first came from Liam Sutcliffe, his third in three games since coming back from his loan spell at the Bulls. Kallum Watkins then produced a great individual break to brush off defenders and power over from 20 metres out.

Finally Rob Burrow got the biggest cheer of the night as he supported the break before racing through to score between the posts. Hardaker converted two of the last three tries to give his side a 46-6 victory. The forty point winning margin was the biggest for Leeds ever, eclipsing the 49-10 win in the 1970-71 season.
