Catalans Dragons 32 Leeds Rhinos 30

6th June 2009

By Leeds Rhinos

A last minute try from Cyril Stactul gave Catalans Dragons a dramatic win over the Rhinos at the Stade Brutus Gilbert.

The Dragons had established a 28-12 lead but with three Rhinos tries in eight minutes it looked like the Champions would snatch the win. The homeside did not put their heads down though and threw everything and Leeds in search of the winning try and it came with less than a minute left a clock, with Cyril Stactul the hero for the jubilant Dragons’ supporters.

Leeds Rhinos travelled to Perpignan looking to make it three from three over Catalans Dragons having beaten them at Headingley Carnegie and Murrayfield earlier this year.

They came into the game though without Rob Burrow and Jamie Jones-Buchanan who were ruled out through injury and after three minutes were dealt a further blow when Ian Kirke, who had celebrated a new two year deal with the Rhinos earlier in the week, was forced off the pitch after suffering a leg injury following a tackle from Dragons captain Greg Bird.

The Rhinos were dominant in the opening 15 minutes and looked lively in attack, but Catalans showed they were a strong physical side and some crunching tackles prevented the Rhinos from scoring.

Leeds then conceded a number of penalties which gave Catalans momentum and eventually they were able to force their way through the Rhinos defence with Steven Bell outjumping his marker to collect the ball from a perfectly placed kick from Adam Mogg to score the opening try. Thomas Bosc converted to put the Dragons 6-0 ahead after 19 minutes.

The Rhinos hit back six minutes later through some great skill from Danny McGuire who stepped through the Catalans defence to create a gap to go over under the posts. Sinfield landed the conversion to level the score at 6-6.

On 30 minutes Leeds were penalised once again by referee Steve Ganson and Thomas Bosc edged his side ahead with a penalty. The visitors though quickly responded and two minutes later after Remi Casty had knocked on, Keith Senior collected the ball before offloading to Danny McGuire who went over for his second try in the left corner, which Sinfield converted put Leeds ahead for the first time in the game

Before the half came to a close Catalans narrowed the margin by two points through a Bosc penalty in front of the posts, although at first it appeared that he had opted to twice take the tap rather than kick for goal. Within five minutes of the second half kicking off the Dragons were ahead again after three sets of six on the Leeds line captain Greg Bird offloaded to Jean Phillipe Baile who powered his way through the Rhinos defence to go over for the try.

The Dragons then had a clear opportunity for another try soon after when Cyril Stactul broke clear in his own half.  A superb tackle from Ryan Hall and Danny McGuire stopped a certain try but the Dragons looked an improved side and seemed determined not to suffer another defeat at the hands of the Rhinos.

Olivier Elima was next to score for the Dragons when he burrowed his way under the Leeds defence and Bosc once again added the conversion and on 64 minutes. Minutes later Elima was in again when he was the grateful recipient of a Thomas Bosc pinpoint kick. 

Leeds showed great character in the final stages of the game to mount a comeback, which began with some superb play from the Rhinos top try scorer Ryan Hall, who collected his own grubber kick to touch the ball down and give the Rhinos a lifeline.  Sinfield converted the try and then combined with Matt Diskin to set up Ali Lauitiiti, who showed his strength to cross for the try.

From the restart it looked like the Rhinos had achieved the ultimate comeback with Danny Buderus holding off the Catalans defenders to break clear to send Brent Webb away from in his own half to go over unopposed.  Kevin Sinfield added the conversion to give Leeds the lead with one minute to go, but there was one final twist left in the game.

From a short kick off Lee Smith spilled the ball and Thomas Bosc and Adam Mogg combined to put Jason Croker in an excellent position to set up Stacul for the winning try.
