Leeds Rhinos travel to the South of France on Easter Monday to face high flyers Catalan Dragons at Stade Gilbert Brutus looking for a repeat of their famous play off win there last season.

The Rhinos have lost on their previous two league visits to Perpignan, including last season's dramatic 38-34 loss the week before the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley.

Unfortunately, Leeds will not come up against former team mate Brent Webb, who is recovering from surgery on his back and will miss the game. In his absence, Catalan went top of Super League on the same night that the Rhinos were drawing 18-18 with Bradford at Headingley Carnegie as they came from behind to beat London Broncos at Esher.

We have been informed by Catalan that supporters making the trip over are invited to arrive early at the ground as gates open at 4pm and for the first 30 minutes, until 4.30pm, beer will be 'buy one, get one free'. There will also be a concert on before the game for fans entertainment.

Catalan Dragons 12 Leeds Rhinos 27

1st April 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos produced a historic victory in Perpignan as they overcame the sending off of Ryan Bailey in the second half to defeat Catalan Dragons with Kevin Sinfield kicking 15 points.

Leeds Rhinos faced a tough trip to Catalan Dragons and a wet Perpignan on Easter Monday looking to build on the draw with Bradford at the start of the Easter schedule.

Joel Moon gave the Rhinos the perfect start to the game with an early try which Sinfield converted and kick two subsequent penalties to give his side a 10-0 lead. 

However, that was only half the story of the first half as Leeds produced some incredibly brave defence against a mounting penalty count to hold the team, who led the competition at the start of Easter, out. 

The second half saw the penalties continue to mount against the visitors and they were then reduced to 12 men when Ryan Bailey was sent off for a late challenge on Thomas Bosc.

Catalan sensed their chance to strike and hit back with two quick tries from Leon Pryce, although replays suggested he knocked on, and Bosc. He converted both to give his side the lead for the first time at 12-10. Leeds faced a huge task in the remaining 30 minutes. 

They levelled the game with the first penalty of the half and then Paul McShane spotted a gap from dummy half and darted over. Sinfield added the conversion and a drop goal two minutes later to put his side two scores in front. 

The win was sealed with eight minutes to go when Jamie Jones-Buchanan was not held and scored between the posts. Sinfield added the conversion to cement his place in seventh in the all time list of the game's points scorers and help secure a famous win even for this group of players who have had so many glorious nights.
