Hull FC 4 Leeds Rhinos 30

24th March 2008

By Leeds Rhinos

Leeds continued their busy Easter schedule with a visit to the KC Stadium, where the Rhinos had lost on their last two visits. Leeds were boosted by the return Ryan Bailey, Carl Ablett and Danny McGuire, who all started on the bench following their recent injuries. There was no such luck for the hosts however, who welcomed back just Richard Horne from a long list of their injured players. Following on from their victory over Bradford four days earlier the Rhinos were looking to continue their winning form and make it three games in a row without conceding a try

Leeds started strongly and dominated the game in the early stages of the game and with 8 minutes gone it looked like Kevin Sinfield had given the Rhinos the lead when he burrowed his way over the try line, but after referee Phil Bentham consulted the video ref the try was disallowed for obstruction. On 12 minutes through Leeds got their first points on the board, with Rob Burrow continuing his try scoring run, after collecting a neatly placed kick from Sinfield to touch down the ball. The captain added the conversion to put the Rhinos 6-0 in front. Brent Webb grabbed the chance to extend the Rhinos' lead on 23 minutes after a powerful run from Jamie Peacock created the chance for the New Zealander. The Great Britain captain forced his way upfield before passing to Scott Donald who offloaded to Sinfield who then sent the full back on his way under the posts. Sinfield once again added the conversion. The Rhinos third try came just three minutes later after some brilliant play from Gareth Ellis who muscled his way through the Hull defence before passing inside to McGuire, who then sent in a reverse pass to the supporting Smith who raced over for the try. Sinfield again was successful with the kick to bring the score to 18-0. Hull's best chance came on 30 minutes when Gareth Rayner sent a neat pass to Kirk Yeaman close to the Hull try line, but good defence from Leeds ensured the effort came to nothing. This chance gave the home side some hope and they were much more determined in the last ten minutes. Leeds through remained composed despite the pressure and their excellent defence kept the Hull men from getting any points before the half time whistle.

Leeds came out fired up in the second half and within 5 minutes Ablett had marked his return to the side with a try. After some expansive play from the visitors, which saw the ball pass through 11 pairs of hands, the Hull defence was opened up and Ablett was able to find space to crash his way over. Sinfield extended the lead to 24-0 with the conversion. The Rhinos then gave away two quick penalties near their try line, which allowed Hull to gain some momentum, but still they could not break the Rhinos who remained resolute in defence. With Hull unable to make the most of their chances it was not long before Leeds were able to punish them further and on 54 minutes the Rhinos took a 30-0 lead through Kevin Sinfield. Burrow weaved his way through Hull's would be tacklers before finding Nick Scruton who showed great strength, taking his tackler near to the try line, before offloading to Sinfield who dived in next to the posts. The skipper added the conversion to bring the score to 30-0. Leeds continued to dominate in attack and had the potential to extend the lead on a number of occasions but some missed passes proved costly and meant they were unable to score another try in the game. As the game drew to an end it seemed like Leeds were going to inflict their second nilling of the season, but with three minutes to go, Gareth Raynor, who is the top try scorer for Hull against Leeds, out sprinted his defender to get his hand on a grubber kick to the corner to score what was to be a consolation try for the hosts and the first try scored against Leeds in 233 minutes of rugby. Hull were unable to add the conversion however bringing the final score ending 30-4 to the Rhinos.
