Hull FC 22 Leeds Rhinos 38

24th July 2011

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds Rhinos booked their place in the Carnegie Challenge Cup semi final with a fantastic second half fightback at the KC Stadium.

Leeds Rhinos travelled to the KC Stadium to take on Hull FC in the Carnegie Challenge Cup Quarter Final, nine days after the two teams met at Headingley Carnegie.

The Rhinos had won 20-0 in the league meeting and were hoping for a tenth straight win against the Airlie Birds. However, Hull had been in a rich vein of form prior to their trip to Leeds.

Hull FC were clearly realing from the defeat at Headingley Carnegie and came out fired up early on. They enjoyed the lions share of possession and could have taken the lead inside five minutes only for Kirk Yeaman to lose control of the ball untouched by a Leeds defender.

Leeds had to defend manfully to keep the home side out and they seemed to have an answer for most things that Hull threw at them. However, a couple of missed tackles by Danny Buderus and Brent Webb allowed Sam Obst through and he scored between the posts. Danny Tickle added the conversion after 16 minutes.

The home side doubled their lead five minutes later when Richard Whiting latched onto a pass from Chris Clarkson. He appeared destined to score after beating two tacklers but a great cover tackle from Danny McGuire stopped him five metres short. A quick play the ball allowed Jordan Turner to make the most of extra space and he spun out of the tackle to score. Tickle again on target to make it 12-0.

Leeds had had earlier chances for Delaney and Jones-Bishop off kicks from Sinfield but neither were able to regather the ball to make the most of the opportunity. However, they did finally cross after 26 minutes when Sinfield threw a wide pass to Jones-Bishop. The winger appeared to have little space to play with but tip toed his way down the line to beat Tom Briscoe and Cameron Phelps to score in the corner. Sinfield added a brilliant touchline conversion to make it 12-6.

The Rhinos were dealt a blow just before half time when Hull crossed for a third try. It came from penalty just inside the Hull half when Leeds were penalised for a high tackle. The home side pressed hard for a score and Turner managed to drag three would be tacklers over the line with him to score. Tickle missed the conversion attempt near the touchline to leave the half time score 16-6 to the Airlie Birds.

The second half saw the Rhinos respond in spectacular fashion as they overhauled Hull’s advantage at the break inside eight minutes.

Ali Lauitiiti started the charge after a great break by Jones-Bishop saw the winger only denied by a desperate tap tackle by Willie Manu. The Rhinos kept their head though and there was no denying the giant Samoan. Sinfield converted to make it 16-12.

The scores were level soon afterwards when the Rhinos made the most of a shift in momentum. After back to back penalties, Brett Delaney powered his way over the defence to score. Sinfield missed his first chance to set a new club record and left the scores locked at 16-16.

However, the Rhinos skipper was not to be denied his place in history as he opted to kick a penalty ten metres from the Hull line. It was a simple kick with a huge significance as he set a new landmark and standard for goal kicking at the Rhinos.

Leeds needed to make the most of their dominance and were denied a try by the video referee for Ryan Bailey but they did take decisive lead when Carl Ablett showed great presence of mind to exploit a back peddling Hull defence and crash over. Sinfield was on target again to make it 24-16.

The game was in the balance now with Hull desperate to score the next try to put the game back in the balance. Momentum had turned in their favour with a couple of penalties and Joe Westerman managed to get through a gap to score. Tickle brought his side back to within two points with the conversion.

The next score was going to be crucial and it was the Rhinos who got it when Ablett crossed for his second as he spun out of a tackle and touched down. Sinfield on target to make it 30-22. The captain then added a penalty to edge his side closer to a semi final.

The win was completed in the final seconds as Jones-Bishop intercepted to go through untouched to score. Sinfield converted to make the final score 38-22.
