Hull FC 25 Leeds Rhinos 24

27th August 2005

By Leeds Rhinos

There was bitter disappointed for the Rhinos once again at Cardiff as they lost out to a last gasp try at the Millennium Stadium.

The opening exchangers were as rough and tough as expected by these two uncompromising packs.  Leeds got the first try of the game after 14 minutes when Kevin Sinfield kicked a bomb to the corner which Motu Tony and Gareth Raynor made a hash of catch and Mark Calderwood was quickest to react. Steve Ganson refered the decision to the video ref who awarded a penalty try after Calderwood had been held back trying to ground the ball initially. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 6-0 to the Rhinos.

Tony made a mends through when Hull hit back after 26 minutes, he chipped over the Leeds defence, regathered his own kick on the full and touched down in the same movement.

Keith Senior did not appear for the Rhinos at the start of the second half and there was more bad news for Leeds when former player Gareth Raynor crossed for Hull’s second try of the game after 45 minutes.

The Rhinos were finally able to build some pressure and from a repeat set of six Danny Ward crashed over for a try. Sinfield’s conversion levelling the game again after 50 minutes.

However, Hull hit straight back but it came through a horrendous error by Marcus Bai. Hull had kicked through into the Leeds in goal area which had been dealt with by Bai. However, instead of being caught and forcing a drop out he tried to offload to Richard Mathers and Whiting was on hand to claim the simplest of tries.

That lead was extended further when Danny Brough added a drop goal from 17 metres out in the next set of six.
The Rhinos were then handed a lifeline when Mark Calderwood produced a fantastic solo effort, bursting through two would be tacklers 30 metres out before out pacing Whiting to touchdown. Sinfield added the conversion and Leeds were within touching distance of the lead again.

And from the next set they had it. The Rhinos moved the ball upfield with purpose before Richard Mathers produced a great cross field kick which was collected by Marcus Bai and raced round to score under the posts and given Sinfield a regulation kick to make it 24-19 after 69 minutes.

However, there was a final twist in the tail and a cruel one for the Rhinos. With two minutes remaining, Paul Cooke stepped through the cover tackle and touched down under the posts given Brough a simple conversion to win it.
