Harlequins 32 Leeds Rhinos 22

20th August 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos made their first trip to the Capital ahead of next week’s Carnegie Challenge Cup Final to take on Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop.

The Rhinos had suffered their first defeat of the season to the London outfit at Headingley Carnegie and so were looking to put matters right in the away tie.  Leeds were without Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Jamie Peacock and Ryan Bailey who were all rested for the game.

The match began with heavy rain pouring down at the Stoop and it was the homeside, which included five former Leeds players in their side, who started the stronger of the two teams.  The wet conditions contributed to Leeds making a number of handling errors in the opening minutes but it did not stop Quins showing some real skill to threaten the Leeds defence. 

On 14 minutes Quins took a deserved lead when Chad Randall made a break 10 yards out before offloading to Luke Dorn who crossed in the right corner.  Luke Gale converted to put them 6-0 in front.

The sun eventually came out at the Stoop, but there was no let up on the field for Leeds and on 17 minutes the homeside built on their lead when Dorn crossed for his second.  A neat pass from Chris Bailey allowed the full back to open up the Leeds defence to go over unopposed under the posts.

Quins continued to dominate the game, with Leeds their own worst enemy making more handling errors that allowed their hosts to gain good territory and the visitors went 13 minutes without completing a set.

On 28 minutes Leeds were penalised in front of the posts and Dorn stepped up to edge his side further in front with the kick and six minutes later there was further woe for the Rhinos when their captain Kevin Sinfield was sin binned for a professional foul on Dorn.

With Sinfield off the pitch Quins were able to make the most of their extra man.  A clever move from Dan Sarginson, who spotted the gap in the Leeds defence and got the ball out to Rob Purdham who then fed the ball to Jamie O’Callaghan.  The centre then showed great strength to twist his way out of a three man Leeds tackle to get the ball down, bringing the half time score to 20-0.

Within five minutes of the second half kicking off Leeds found themselves further behind when Gale set up Dorn for his hat trick and the conversion from Gale put his side 26-0 in front.

It looked like Leeds were heading for their first nilling at the Stoop but an excellent move from Burrow put McGuire in a good position to send a floating pass to the supporting Ryan Hall who ran over in the left corner.  Sinfield though was unable to add the conversion, leaving the score to 26-4 after 53 minutes.

A Rhinos comeback though never looked likely and on 65 minutes a Leeds knock on close to their tryline gave Quins a new set of six and from this Dorn once again caused problems for the visitors by setting up former Leeds man Mark Cadlerwood for a score in the corner.  Gale made it six from six with the conversion to bring the score to 32-4.

Leeds responded with seven minutes to play, Chris Clarkson starting the move with a pass to Weller Hauraki who offloaded to Sinfield and the captain fed McGuire who dived over.  Sinfield this time converted to 32-10.

Three minutes later Leeds were in again when Rob Burrow turned Calderwood inside out to find space to grab another try for the Rhinos and then with two minutes left to play Leeds made the scoreline look more respectable when Jay Pitts crossed for a try.  Sinfield converted to bring the score to 32-22, but it was too late for Leeds and Quins were able to secure their first league double over the Rhinos since 1996.
