Huddersfield Giants 12 Leeds Rhinos 36

22nd September 2017

By Phil Daly

Joel Moon kicks

Leeds made sure they went into the Betfred Super League semi final in the best possible form with a well earned victory against Rick Stone’s Huddersfield Giants outfit with Danny McGuire scoring in both halves.

The Rhinos made the perfect start in the wet conditions at the John Smith’s Stadium as they opened the scoring inside the first 90 seconds through Kallum Watkins. Huddersfield had spilled the ball in the first set from the kick off and two tackles later, Watkins spun in the tackle and stretch out to score. He converted his own try from the touchline to give his side a perfect start.

The visitors were dealt a blow shortly afterwards when Brett Delaney was forced off through injury to be replaced by Liam Sutcliffe.

Huddersfield thought they had got a try back for winger Jared Simpson only for play to be pulled back for a forward pass in the build up. The Rhinos then punished the error with a superb individual try from skipper Danny McGuire. McGuire has enjoyed some of his greatest moments in blue and amber at the Giant’s home ground and he marked his final visit as a Leeds player with a special try. Breaking through near half way, he raced clear before dummying to winger Tom Briscoe and ghosted back in field to score. Watkins narrowly missed his conversion attempt but the Rhinos now led 10-0.

The Rhinos increased their lead soon after with a fourth try of the season for Jimmy Keinhorst. The chance was created by Joel Moon with a grubber kick behind the Giants defence which Keinhorst hacked ahead and collected to score. Watkins was on target again with the conversion to give his side a 16-0 lead after as many minutes.

Huddersfield gave themselves a lifeline before the interval with a try ten minutes late. Brough, who had pounded the Rhinos defence with the high ball, opted to kick low and, when Leeds failed to clear the ball dead, Michael Lawrence raced through to touch down. Brough added the conversion to make it 16-6 at the break.

It remained that way for a long period in the second half before Leeds opened the scoring 16 minutes after the break through Danny McGuire. The skipper created the chance when he broke through before passing to Ashton Golding in support. The full back was tackled from behind by Brough but had the presence of mind to look for the return pass to McGuire to score his second try. Watkins was on target again with the conversion to give Leeds a 22-6 advantage.

That lead was extended when Anthony Mullally proved too big and too strong near the line to stop against his former club. Watkins added the conversion and a subsequent penalty to secure the win.

Huddersfield chanced their arm after that and got a try back through Ryan Hinchcliffe but the Rhinos found an immediate response when Ryan Hall broke down the touchline before passing back inside to Rob Burrow to score. Watkins’ conversion made it 36-6.
