Castleford Tigers 12 Leeds Rhinos 26

3rd April 2015

By Leeds Rhinos

Two tries from Ryan Hall helped the Rhinos to a Good Friday derby win over Castleford Tigers along with scores from Joel Moon, Stevie Ward and Adam Cuthbertson.

Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers met on Good Friday and produce a feast of tough Easter rugby as both teams gave their all in wet and slippery conditions at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.
 
The Rhinos had the best of the early pressure but were reduced to 12 men when Ryan Hall was sin binned for holding down former Leeds junior Luke Gale after he intercepted a spilled offload meant for Carl Ablett on the Tigers line. Hall chased back to haul the half back down on half way but referee Ben Thaler judged he was there too long and dispatched him to the bin.
 
Leeds had to withstand a barrage of pressure from the home side but then hit back just as Hall returned to the field. McGuire cut through 40 metres out before finding Joel Moon and the centre had a clear run to the line to score his first try of the season.
 
The visitors soon doubled their advantage with McGuire and Moon once again at the heart of the attack. Moon put McGuire away however he was tackled just short of the line. Castleford were back peddling and Adam Cuthbertson offloaded to Hall to score in the corner. Sutcliffe converted the second try to give his side a 10-0 lead.
 
The Tigers then had a long spell of pressure on the Leeds line that eventually brought them a reward when Michael Shenton raced through to touch down Liam Finn’s through kick. Luke Gale added the conversion to cut the gap to just four points.
 
Leeds however came up with the perfect response with three minutes to go in the first half when they scored from an almost carbon copy move to the earlier score by the Tigers with Sutcliffe providing the kick for Stevie Ward to score. Sutcliffe added the conversion to make it 16-6 at half time.
 
The second half was a cagey affair for the opening twenty minutes as both teams tried to find an opening. Adam Cuthbertson was judged to have been held up over the line before play switched to the other end of the field with a break away by Justin Carney. The winger looked certain to score but McGuire slowed his progress down initially before Ash Handley refused to be brushed aside and prevented the score. Castleford looked to make amends but knocked on trying to force an opening.
 
The Rhinos made the most of that let off and crossed for their fourth try of the game after 64 minutes. Good work by the pack took the ball down field before quick handling from Moon put Hall in space to score outwide. Sutcliffe missed the conversion attempt from wide out but Leeds now led 20-6.
 
Having been denied earlier on, there was no stopping Adam Cuthbertson three minutes later when he got within striking range and he shrugged off two would be tacklers to put the ball down. Sutcliffe added the conversion to give his side an unassailable twenty point lead with fifteen minutes to go.
 
The Tigers continued to throw everything at Leeds but, even with their commanding lead, the Rhinos never gave in and produced some stirring defence. The home side did finally get a consolation try for the majority of the full house inside the Jungle when Carney this time did pass to Shenton to put him over for a try, converted by Gale. However, the Rhinos were good value for their 26-12 win that keeps them top of the First Utility Super League for Easter.
