Leeds Rhinos 10 Widnes Vikings 14

29th April 2002

By Leeds Rhinos

Super League new boys Widnes Vikings pulled off a shock 14-10 victory over the Rhinos at Headingley, as they continued their 12 month unbeaten record on the road.

Leeds had Tonie Carroll and Darren Fleary ruled out with injuries and they were soon joined in the treatment room by Chev Walker, who sustained injuries to his shoulder and knees after a sickening clash with Adam Hughes midway through the first half. The ball was floated out wide to Walker and both players collided with the Leeds man coming out worse off.

 Widnes toughed out the win, leading 10-0 at half time following Barry Eaton's two early penalties and David Mills' converted 37th minute try after they had used the strong wind at their backs to their advantage. Widnes kept Leeds pinned in their half with a solid kicking game although it was a failure to wrap the ball up in the tackle that allowed Cantillon and Eaton to combine to send Mills over from 10 metres out. Widnes should have had a player sin binned at the end of the first half and the Vikings gave away constant penalties on their own line to deny Leeds a crucial try but referee Ian Smith decided to award a stream of penalties instead.

 Leeds came out strongly in the second half with powerful runs by Matt Adamson and Danny Ward and then Marcus St Hilaire pulled a try after a period of nearly 10 minutes of constant pressure. Ben Walker put a towering bomb into the corner which evaded Keith Senior to bounce into the waiting arms of St Hilaire. St Hilaire and Calderwood were excellent on the "much talked about" bomb and for once this was not Leeds' undoing.

 When Stuart Spruce made the Vikings' lead 14-4 all seemed lost for the home side however that was before Andy Hay's 75th minute score, converted by Ben Walker closed the gap to four points. But the home side could not conjure up any magic on a frustrating night at Headingley.
