Leeds Rhinos 12 Castleford Tigers 52

12th May 2016

By Leeds Rhinos

The Rhinos endured a new low in a bitterly disappointing season as they lost out to Castleford Tigers at Headingley Carnegie.

The Tigers had an early chance from a crossfield kick by Luke Gale but the Rhinos made the most of their let off with a try in the next passage of play. Having gained a penalty in midfield following good work by Mitch Garbutt, the Rhinos rumbled up field and a delayed pass by Burrow put Garbutt over for his first try of the season. Lilley added the conversion to make it 6-0 after seven minutes.
 
The visitors then hit back themselves on the back of a penalty. Brett Ferres was penalised for not being square at marker and the Tigers made the most of their territory when Junior Moors juggled a pass from Luke Gale before collecting it and offloading to Luke Dorn to score. Gale added the conversion to level the game.
 
Leeds came firing back at the Tigers after that and twice penned them near their line on back to back defensive sets and then had a try disallowed for Danny McGuire for obstruction without referral to the video referee.
 
Phil Benthan was soon called upon when Denny Solomona took Joel Monaghan’s offload from a cross field kick and stretched out to score spectacularly in the corner. After checking for a potential knock on the try was rightly awarded and Gale extended the lead from the touchline.
 
The Rhinos went close to scoring on their next set with good play by Ashton Golding, Zak Hardaker and Kallum Watkins but Burrow’s grubber kick rebounded off the defenders legs and Castleford dived on the loose ball on their own line.
 
Keith Galloway lifted the atmosphere with two massive tackles in midfield and Ash Handley went close when he was bundled into touch in the corner.
 
However, having withstood that pressure the Tigers then struck for a third try as Dorn collected an intelligent low kick from Gale when the half back dummied to go high again. Gale added the conversion to put his side 18-6 in front after 30 minutes.
 
The Rhinos nightmare first half was rounded off in the final ten minutes with two more tries conceded. Second row Mike McMeeken managed to get his arms free in the tackle and offloaded to Dorn on the line to complete his hat trick.
 
Then with the last play of the half, Joel Monaghan scored after the officials were happy about a potential obstruction in midfield on Jamie Jones-Buchanan that prevented the forward getting to Gale in the build up. The half back converted both tries to give his side a 30-6 lead at the break.
 
The second half got off to a dreadful start for the home side when they conceded a further two tries inside the opening ten minutes. Handley had leapt highest to take a high ball but lost his grip on the ball as he was challenged and Solomona picked up to score in the corner.
 
Then Gadwin Springer bumped off a number of would be tackles near the line before stretching out to score. Gale converted the latter to make it 40-6.
 
Leeds did finally find a response with a skilful passage of play that eventually saw the ball popped up to Handley, who finished well from 40 metres out. Lilley added the conversion to cut the gap to 40-12.
 
The Rhinos battled hard to find another score but were then hit by a sucker punch with the offload to Ferres on halfway was spilled and Ben Crooks intercepted to run 50 metres to score. Gale added the conversion to make it 46-12.
 
Both teams has tries disallowed by video referee Phil Bentham before the next score came. McMeeken was denied a try when the replay showed obstruction in the build up and then Anthony Mullally was held up over the line after he collected the ball near the Tigers posts.
 
It was Castleford who finally crossed for the next try. Leeds had regrouped rapidly to stop a Solomona break but when they got a repeat set on the Rhinos line the pressure eventually mounted and Grant Millington took Gale’s flick pass out of the back of his hand to score. Gale converted the try to increase the lead to 52-12.
