Hull KR 25 Leeds Rhinos 6

9th July 2010

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos have lost out to Hull KR at Craven Park after going behind 18-0 in the first half in a bruising encounter.

Leeds Rhinos travelled across to Craven Park looking to avoid the first double defeat to the Robins since the 1985-86 season.

WP – Home MPU

Brian McClennan was able to name Rob Burrow amongst his replacements to face Hull KR however Ali Lauitiiti and Luke Burgess missed out on a return.

With centres Michael Ratu and Jake Webster both set for lengthy spells on the sidelines and Kris Welham also out, Hull KR coach Justin Morgan has moved to bolster his options by signing 19-year-old Charnley on a month's loan from Wigan and he was thrown straight in for his Super League debut up against Keith Senior.

The home side came out fired up and Leeds had to weather an early storm of pressure. Carl Ablett did well to intercept a pass 15 metres from his own line but Leeds could not make the most of the half chance.

Ablett was looking dangerous and he created the first try scoring when he broke through before passing to Danny McGuire. McGuire looked certain to score but was tackled just short of the line by Michael Dobson and replays showed that the ball carrying arm hit the ground before he stretched out to score.

Rovers then went straight back down the other end of the field and did open the scoring. Ben Galea managed to get away from a tackle ten metres out and then forced his way passed Lee Smith to score. Dobson added the simple conversion to make it 6-0 after eight minutes.

Having got that early score, Rovers sensed their chance to turn the screw and twice trapped Scott Donald in his in goal to force the Rhinos to drop out. However, Leeds produced some outstanding defence to keep the home side out and eventually Dobson in his haste knocked on a metre short of the line.

Leeds had a good opportunity soon afterwards following good offloads by Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Kevin Sinfield. McGuire kicked high for the posts and as the ball rebounded off the upright it fell at the feet of Lee Smith but the full back was unable to control the ball as it flew back at him and his kick through was just too far for him to regather before the deadball line.

Cautious of that let off, Rovers turned the pressure back on the Rhinos at the next possible opportunity. This time it was Ryan Hall who was penned in his own in goal and from the resultant set of six from the drop out, Ben Fisher went over for his side's second try. Dobson added the conversion to make it 12-0 after 19 minutes.

The arrival of Luke Ambler and Rob Burrow off the bench seemed to lift the Rhinos and they were denied by the video referee for a second time after 32 minutes when replays showed that Carl Ablett knocked on as he tried to squeeze his way over from close range.

The first half was a very cagey affair with both teams producing some good defence. The difference between the sides was Rovers clinical edge. They had scored their two earlier chances and with two minutes to go in the half, former Rhino Peter Fox picked up a loose pass from Sinfield on half way and raced 50 metres to score between the posts. Dobson added the conversion to make it 18-0 at half time.

There was no let up for the Rhinos at the start of the second half as Dobson continued to control the game with his boot. Once again the Champions were forced to drop out from behind their own line but they were grateful for Fox being unable to take Charnley's pass ten metres from the Leeds line.

However, the Rhinos this time made the most of their let off. The home fans were wailing for a knock on by Keith Senior ten minutes into the half but whilst everyone else stood around, Ablett continued the momentum to take the ball further upfield. The tackle count was wiped clean and on the last tackle, a clever grubber kick by Burrow was touched down by Hall. Sinfield added the conversion to make it 18-6 after 51 minutes.

Leeds managed to get a foothold in the game after that as the Rovers side appeared to begin to tire. The Rhinos pushed hard and eventually created an opening for McGuire who burst through on half way. He had Donald in support but the home back three worked well together to close down the space and snuff out the chance.

With sixteen minutes to go Scott Murrell attempted a drop goal to give his side a three score lead but his attempt was well wide and the slight chance of a comeback was still on for the Rhinos.

However, Dobson was successful with 12 minutes left to leave the Rhinos staring defeat in the face and it appeared as if it was not going to be their night when Hall uncharacteristically knocked on as he attempted to ground the ball in the corner.

Rovers made sure of the points with six minutes to go when Ben Cockayne latched on to Galea's kick to beat Senior to the touch down. Dobson added the conversion to make it 25-6.

It was proving to be a bad night for Hall when he was denied again with three minutes to go as he lost control of the ball with two defenders on top of him in the Rovers in goal.
