Harlequins 20 Leeds Rhinos 54

5th August 2007

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos produced an incredible second half showing to score 48 points after the break and run out 54-20 winners over Quins at the Stoop.

Leeds trailed 16-6 at the interval and looked like they may slump to their third successive defeat. However, Leeds looked a changed side after the break and blew Quins away with eight tries.

WP – Home MPU

The home side hit the front early on when centre Paul Sykes crossed for the opening try after eight minutes after the Rhinos had conceded quick back to back penalties. However, he was unable to convert his own score.
Quins came out fired up and put the Rhinos under real pressure in the sweltering conditions.

However, after 17 minutes the Rhinos took the lead through Jamie Thackray, only 60 seconds after coming off the bench. He drove the ball up and powered his way over. Kevin Sinfield added the conversion from in front of the posts to give Leeds the lead.

The Rhinos were reduced to 12 men shortly afterwards when Brent Webb was sin binned for a high tackle as Phil Bentham lost patience with the visitors and decided to show a card.

Leeds paid the price a minute late when Scott Hill bumped off the tackle, having reacted to a quick play the ball and went over with the Rhinos still adjusting to being a man light. Sykes added the conversion to make it 10-6 to the home side.

Quins made the most of their numerical advantage and extended their lead with less than ten minutes remaining in the half when Tyrone Smith released full back Mark McLinden and he raced through the gap to score. Sykes added the conversion to make it 16-6 at half time.

The Rhinos started strongly after the break and eventually scored through Brent Webb after a great offload by Jamie Thackray. Sinfield converted to make the score 16-12 to the home side after 48 minutes.

It got even better from the re-start as Danny McGuire kicked through a great 40:20 kick to continue the pressure on the home side. In the sweltering conditions, inevitably pressure would lead to points and so it was when Jordan Tansey collected his own grubber kick from close range to score between the posts. Sinfield's conversion re-took the lead.
Whatever had been said by Tony Smith at half time, it was certainly having an effect as the Rhinos continued to steamroll their way through the Quins.

Ali Lauitiiti was awarded a penalty after the ball was reefed out and Kevin Sinfield was alert to the options. Quins were visibly shaken in the face of the Rhinos onslaught and the heat and Sinfield took a quick tap, spun out of the tackle and touched down. He converted his own try to make it 24-16 to the visitors.

On the hour mark Gareth Ellis scored the Rhinos fourth try of the half after a good inside ball by Danny McGuire, before Scott Donald picked up a loose pass by Danny Orr on his own line and raced the full length of the field to score. Sinfield's conversion making it 36-16.

Five minutes later, Leeds were in again. The visitors gained field position when Jordan Tansey was taken out as he chased a kick. From the quick tap, Brent Webb released Jamie Peacock from short range and he finished off the move to bring up the 40 point mark for the Rhinos. Sinfield again converted to make it 42-16.

With six minutes remaining Quins finally got on the scoreboard in the second half when Danny Orr touched down however the Rhinos had the last laugh as Keith Senior released McGuire on his own line. McGuire raced through and sprinted up field to beat McLinden and score in the corner, with Senior sprinting alongside him all the way but was not needed. Jordan Tansey took over kicking duties from Sinfield and slotted a brilliant touchline conversion to make it 48-20.

Senior then set up Brent Webb for his second try of the game to bring up the 50 point mark. The centre drew McLinden before passing to Webb to go over. Tansey converted again to make it 54-20 at the final hooter.
