Hull KR 24 Leeds Rhinos 25

5th August 2012

By Leeds Rhinos

A late drop goal from Kevin Sinfield gave Leeds Rhinos a 25-24 win over Hull KR after trailing 18-6 at the break.

Hull KR have won their last two home meetings with Leeds, with the Rhinos' last away win against the Robins coming 19-10 on 20 February, 2009 however the Champions did beat Rovers at a frosty Headingley Carnegie on the opening day of the season.

The Rhinos welcomed back Carl Ablett, Ryan Bailey, Danny McGuire and Brett Delaney for the trip to East Yorkshire but Rovers were looking to build on their win over Widnes the previous week that ended a four game losing run.

Leeds would have hoped to have made a positive start to the game but instead found themselves on the back foot early on. A break by Louis Sheriff was stopped by his opposite number Zak Hardaker but Rovers had the momentum and got a penalty at the next tackle. From there Michael Dobson dictated play and his long pass gave Graeme Horne a small gap to run at and he spun in the tackle to touch down. Dobson added the long range conversion to make it 6-0 after five minutes.

Leeds hit back six minutes later when Kevin Sinfield put Stevie Ward through a gap and the young man showed great strength to get out of the initial tackle and then stepped the full back before timing his pass to perfection to Danny McGuire to score. Sinfield added the conversion to level the game.

Rovers responded once more and scored on the back of another penalty in the Leeds half. Jamie Jones-Buchanan was pulled up for coming in to complete a tackle. Two tackles later, hooker Josh Hodgson spotted a gap near the post in the Rhinos defensive line and did well to spin out of the tackle and score. Dobson was on target again to make it 12-6 after 17 minutes.

Leeds looked like they had cancelled that effort out five minutes later when Ryan Hall jumped highest to tap down McGuire’s cross field kick into the waiting hands of Carl Ablett, who touched down. Initially touch judge Tony Martin had not signalled that the ball had gone out of play but when Ablett touched down he waved his flag to alert referee Tim Roby to his decision.

The Rhinos were left to rue that missed opportunity when Dobson ducked out of the tackle from Brett Delaney 30 metres from the Leeds line and then around Ryan Bailey despairing dive to break clear. He had support on either side but decided to throw the dummy instead and went around Hardaker as the last line of defence and scored between the posts. Whilst Dobson was successfully adding the conversion McGuire was placed on report for an off the ball challenge on Lincoln Withers that appeared to occur when the Leeds man misjudged the dummy from Dobson on the way to the try.

In the remainder of the half, rain began to fall at Craven Park and neither team was able to make any real impression after that to leave the Rhinos trailing 18-6 at the break.

Leeds needed a response at the start of the second half and they got just that with three tries inside the opening ten minutes to turn the tide in their favour. The first came from Ryan Hall, who celebrated the arrival of his son Harry with a simple try gifted to him but a floated pass from Sinfield.

In the next set of six, Ward set Kallum Watkins away and he released Ben Jones-Bishop down the touchline. The winger spotted the cover coming across and passed inside for Danny McGuire to equal Keith Senior’s Super League try scoring record with his 199th touch down in regular season games. Sinfield was off target with the latter conversion but his side now trailed 18-16.

That deficit was reversed soon after when Carl Ablett showed great strength to hold off two would be tacklers and touch down. Sinfield converted that effort to put his side 22-18 in front.

Leeds could expect a response from Rovers and they got it on the hour when Sheriff was quickest to react to a clever reverse kick from Scott Murrell and beat Hardaker to the touch down. Dobson edged his side back on front with the conversion to set up a tense finale.

Sinfield levelled the game with ten minutes to go when he opted to go for goal for a penalty in midfield. And the skipper then put his side in front with seven minutes to go when he popped over a drop goal from 30m out.

Hull KR had chances at the end, most notably through Dobson who chipped ahead and only just failed to regather but Leeds held on for a much needed win.
