Castleford Tigers 14 Leeds Rhinos 22

8th May 2014

By Leeds Rhinos

Two tries apiece from Kallum Watkins and Ben Jones-Bishop helped propel the Rhinos to a 22-14 win over title rivals Castleford.

The Rhinos were expecting a tough test from Daryl Powell’s side a year after the former boss had taken charge of the Tigers.
And it was the home side who took an early lead. Leeds were guilty of handing over possession cheaply in their own half and Castleford made them pay as they shifted the ball wide and Kirk Dixon touched down in the corner. Marc Sneyd added the touchline conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead.
The lead was extended when Sneyd kicked a simple penalty from in front of the posts and the home crowd were in full flow with their side leading 8-0 after 14 minutes.
However, Leeds hit back five minutes later. Good work by Carl Ablett took the Rhinos to within striking distance before clever play from Zak Hardaker and Kallum Watkins gave Ben Jones-Bishop the smallest of gaps in the corner but it was all the winger needed to go through and score. Sinfield converted from the touchline into the rain to make it 8-6.

Leeds then hit the front for the first time on the half hour mark when Watkins took Hardaker’s pass and proved too strong for three would-be Castleford tacklers as he powered his way through and touched down. Sinfield was again on target to give his side a 12-6 lead.

The visitors had other chances after that but it was Castleford who finished the half on a high when Sneyd cut back inside to bump off the tackles of Hardaker and Ablett to score between the posts. He converted his own try to lift the home crowd to a new peak as their side led 14-12 at the break.

Leeds needed a response at the start of the second half and they came up with two tries inside the opening 14 minutes. The first was scored by Jones-Bishop after Hardaker jumped highest to take a high bomb before offloading to Watkins, who gave his winger the simple job of scoring outwide.

Watkins then benefited from good work by Liam Sutcliffe. The youngster sliced through the home defence before offloading to Watkins who slid on his knees on the wet surface towards the line before stretching out to score. Sinfield converted the latter try to give his side a 22-14 lead.

Despite those two tries, the Rhinos had to produce some outstanding defence to keep Castleford out most notably a tackle from Leuluai on Andy Lynch on the try line that stopped a certain try. However, Leeds played the percentages well in the remainder of the half with Sinfield and McGuire astutely kicking down field to make Castleford come back from their own line in the wet conditions. 

That was enough to keep the home side at arms length and secure a well earned win.
