Hull FC 15 Leeds Rhinos 20

8th July 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

A dramatic fight back from the Rhinos including two tries from Kallum Watkins sealed a memorable win for Leeds against high flying Hull FC.

Leeds Rhinos faced the daunting task of travelling to the league leaders as they looked to get back to winning ways however they were boosted by the arrival of hooker James Segeyaro, who made his debut in the starting line up.
 
Whilst Segeyaro was making his first appearance, Jamie Jones-Buchanan was making his 350th appearance for Leeds at the other end of the spectrum.
 
Leeds looked dangerous in the early exchanges and they made the most of it when Rob Burrow put Liam Sutcliffe in space, the full back dummied to Ryan Hall before darting through a gap to score. He missed the conversion but the visitors were good value for their early lead.
 
The Rhinos looked more likely to be the next scorer after that when Jordan Lilley’s kick earned them a repeat set but Ash Handley was held up over the line before Segeyaro went close from dummy half and the home side survived.
 
Lee Radford’s side then received a huge boost with a 40:20 kick from Marc Sneyd and from the next set Carlos Tuimavave evaded the attempted tackle by Brad Singleton and managed to get himself over for the try. Sneyd added the conversion to edge his side into a 6-4 lead after 23 minutes.
 
Hull turned the screw after that score and had four successive sets on the Rhinos line through a combination of brilliant kicking by Sneyd and penalties against the home side. Eventually the pressure proved too much and an error in midfield gave Hull one last chance to attack the line. Kirk Yeaman dummied to pass infield before ducking back around and scoring in the corner. Sneyd was again on target from wide out to make it 12-4 to the home side.
 
With the final kick of the half, Sneyd then extended the lead with a drop goal as the hooter sounded to make it 13-4 at the break.
 
Leeds came out in determined mood after half time and Jones-Buchanan thought he had marked his landmark game with a try when he picked up a loose ball 10 metres out before going over untouched. However the decision went to video referee Robert Hicks and he spotted a knock on in the build up.
 
The Rhinos did get on the board with their next attack with a brilliantly worked try. Rob Burrow kicked wide for Ryan Hall to jump above Steve Michaels and he then offloaded to Joel Moon as he came back down to the ground for the centre to score. Sutcliffe narrowly missed the conversion from the touchline.
 
Leeds were denied once again by the video referee soon after when Singleton chased through after another kick meant for Hall caused panic in the Hull ranks however the replay showed the prop did not get the ball down and the score was chalked off.
 
Hull went back to basics after that and used the astute kicking game of Sneyd to keep the Rhinos under pressure. After two goal line drop outs, they were awarded a penalty for a high tackle by Galloway on Taylor and Sneyd opted to go for goal to extend the lead to 15-8 after 58 minutes.
 
Leeds battled hard to find a way through the Hull defence and eventually they did when Watkins was quickest to react to a grubber kick that rebounded off the Hull defenders on the home side’s line, he picked up and held off two would be tacklers to score. Sutcliffe added an excellent conversion from wide out to put the Rhinos within a point of the Airlie Birds with seven minutes to go.
 
The game was right back in the mix and it was Leeds who made the next move after an error from Hull near their own line. The Rhinos could have scored straight away but Watkins was tackled short of the line however there was no denying the England man three tacklers later as he powered over from first receiver. Sutcliffe missed the conversion but his side led 18-15 with three minutes to go.
 
Leeds had the chance to cross again in the final seconds but Lilley’s pass was knocked down however the Rhinos did increase their winning margin with the last kick of the game as Sutcliffe kicked a penalty to make it 20-15 to complete a league double over Hull FC.
