Huddersfield Giants 40 Leeds Rhinos 18

23rd June 2013

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos lost out to a clinical Huddersfield Giants side at the John Smith’s Stadium but the young stars emerged with credit from a spirited effort.

The Giants have had 14 days to prepare for the clash as they look to bounce back from their shock defeat to Hull KR last time out whilst a number of the Rhinos senior players were playing their third game in nine days. Leeds were without ten first team players and Brian McDermott had named a 19 man squad that had an average age of just 24.

In contrast, Giants boss Paul Anderson was able to make just one change to his squad with on loan hooker Brad Dwyer stepping down to allow prop Larne Patrick to return to the side.

The Rhinos dominated the early possession and territory, twice forcing Huddersfield to drop out but they were unable to make it count. They were left to rue those missed chances when Huddersfield scored with their first attack on the Leeds line after ten minutes. Following a penalty on halfway, England star Leroy Cudjoe attacked the Rhinos line before passing back inside to Luke Robinson, who timed his run to perfection and cut through the line to score. Danny Brough added the conversion to give his side a 6-0 lead.

The visitors hit back shortly afterwards when the Giants defence seemed to underestimate the stature of Liam Sutcliffe and the young stand off powered his way past three would be tacklers to score. Zak Hardaker was on target with the conversion to level the score.

Leeds were unlucky not to take the lead when Ben Jones-Bishop narrowly missed out in the corner but once again the Giants were clinical with their next visit to the Leeds line with two tries in three minutes. The first came from former Rhino Shaun Lunt, who spotted the smallest of gaps in the corner after a desperate piece of defence to keep the Giants out and forced his way over.

The Giants then increased their lead when Aaron Murphy finished off a flowing move from inside their own half. Brough converted the latter try to put his side 16-6 in front.

The Rhinos hit back after 33 minutes with a sensational piece of play from centre Jimmy Keinhorst as he offloaded out of the back to Ben Jones-Bishop to put the winger in for his second try in as many games. Hardaker added the conversion to put his side back in contact at 16-12.

However, Leeds then suffered a sucker punch on the brink of half time when Brett Ferres powered his way over after the Rhinos had been penalise for stealing the ball in the tackle. Brough’s conversion made it 22-12 at the break.

Once again Leeds started the second half with a good percentage of possession and territory but the Giants defence was well marshalled and stood firm despite a number of half chances for the Rhinos. Just as in the first half, the home side then struck with ruthless efficiency to take the game away from the visitors. Lunt created the chance near the touchline before passing to Cudjoe to stretch out and score.

The young Rhinos did not let their heads drop and responded once again to score a great team try when Rob Burrow and Mitch Achurch combined to put Sutcliffe in for his second try of the game. Hardaker gave the Rhinos hope with the conversion putting them ten points behind with as many minutes to play with Scott Grix in the sin bin for the home side.

However, Lunt extinguished those hopes when he bounced off a couple of tackles to go in under the posts. Then Grix, with his first touch after coming out of the bin, completed the victory for the home side by finishing off a flowing move. Brough converted both to make the final score 40-18.
