Huddersfield Giants 28 Leeds Rhinos 20

29th April 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos lost out to Huddersfield Giants are conceding two late tries to the home side and missing out 28-20 despite tries from Jordan Lilley, Rob Burrow and Josh Walters.

Both teams came into the game desperate to get a win, not only for the league table but also perhaps for psychological advantage ahead of the Cup meeting between the sides seven days later.
 
It was Huddersfield who started the strongest and who crossed for the games opening try after seven minutes. Having gained a penalty in midfield, they moved the ball down the short side and Ukuma Ta’ai proved too strong near the line to be stopped. Danny Brough missed the conversion but his side led 4-0.
 
Huddersfield were denied a try by video referee Richard Silverwood, who agreed with the on field call from referee Robert Hicks that Josh Johnson had spilled the ball going for the line.
 
Leeds had to produce some impressive goal line defence to keep the Giants out with Jordan Lilley coming up with an interception to relieve the pressure. The Rhinos then struck back after 27 minutes. The visitors had forced the home side to drop out with a clever kick by Lilley towards the posts and then at the end the next set, the half back was on hand when Liam Sutcliffe equalled the effort towards the posts and the 19-year-old touched down. He converted his own try and then added a penalty to give his side an 8-4 lead.
 
Huddersfield had another try chalked off by the officials when an offside player interfered with Ashton Golding as he attempted to take Brough’s high kick and it remained 8-4 at the interval.
 
The second half was a see saw affair with the lead changing hands a further five times. Firstly, Huddersfield re-took the lead when the ball was fed wide for Gene Ormsby to score his first try for the Giants since joining them on loan from Warrington. Brough added the conversion to made it 10-8.
 
Lilley then set the Rhinos up to re-take the lead. He intercepted again and broke 60 metres down field, supported by Luke Briscoe. The ball was kept alive and eventually Josh Walters stretched out to score his first try since the Grand Final last October. Lilley added the conversion to put the Rhinos 14-10 in front with 30 minutes to play.
 
The Rhinos had to produce more impressive goal line defence after then went up the other end of the field and Keinhorst came within a fingertip of grounding Lilley’s kick.
 
With 21 minutes to go, 17-year-old Cameron Smith came on for his debut and immediately got himself in the thick of the action.
 
Huddersfield hit the front again with 18 minutes to go when McGillvary cut back in off his wing and raced through the defence to score. Brough was on target again with the conversion.
 
The Rhinos then hit back with ten minutes to go. Keinhorst created the pressure with a clever kick to the in goal that earned his side a repeat set. In that set, Rob Burrow dummied to pass to Jamie Jones-Buchanan before ducking under a tackle to score. Lilley was on target again with the conversion.
 
However, Huddersfield rallied late on and crossed for two tries in the closing stages. The first came from Jake Connor after a break from Wood then, with the final play of the game, Eorl Crabtree was awarded a try by the video referee. Brough added the conversion with the last kick of the game to make the final score 28-20.
